Tom Brady in danger? Cowboys get key players back for Super Wild Card Weekend

The Dallas Cowboys come into their 2022 playoff debut with a lot of doubts after last Sunday's woeful game against the Washington Commanders, where they showed very little, made a concert of mistakes and ended up being clearly outplayed by an already eliminated team.

How long has it been since the Cowboys won as visitors in the playoffs?

For this Monday Night Football, in the Super Wild Card Weekend's stellar game, the challenge will be completely different: visiting Tom Brady and his explosive Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense. In fact, the Cowboys have never been able to beat the GOAT in 23 years and seven tries, plus they haven't won as visitors in the playoffs since the 1992 NFC Championship Game.

In this environment, the good news for Jerry Jones' team is that they will recover several key players, mainly on defense, who missed the final stretch of the schedule due to injury and who will be essential to counteract the strengths of Tom Brady's offense, mainly the aerial attack.

Who are the players the Cowboys get back for Super Wild Card Weekend?

According to ESPN's Carlos Nava, they are set to return linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins and center Tyler Biadasz. While they hope to also have cornerback DaRon Bland, who was out with an injury against the Commanders.

Vander Esch missed six games due to a nerve injury in his neck. Hankins, for his part, is recovering from the pectoral injury that even caused him to go on injured reserve and his contribution was essential to counteract the opposing ground attack.

As for Biadasz, he suffered a high ankle sprain in the game against the Tennessee Titans and missed the game against the Commanders. Finally, Bland reported a chest injury that was not considered serious.

Backup guard/center Matt Farniok, who was also activated from the injured list, is also expected to return.
