Cowboys: McClain and Mincey have not been cleared

In what could prove to be disastrous for their defense, the Dallas Cowboys have yet to have linebacker Rolando McClain or defensive end Jeremy Mincey cleared for practice.

Both Mincey and McClain have been key pieces to a no-name Cowboys defense which has far exceeded expectations this season under first year defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

McClain and Mincey are both suffered from concussion effects following last weekends Wild Card Round win over the Lions. The Cowboys will need both to be ready to go come Sunday if they are to stop a Packers offense that went 8-0 at Lambeau Field this season.

In a bit of good news for the Cowboys, running back DeMaro Murray says his broken hand has not been an issue. Murray will again wear extra padding on it.
