Amukamara (pectoral) said he is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.
This isn't exactly surprising, after Amukamara managed limited practices leading up to the two games before the Giants' bye week. He'll likely return to full participation at some point this week, pushing Jayron Hosley back to a second-team role.
Donnell isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington, after the Giants found a "troubling result" on an MRI on his neck, Dan Graziano of ESPN New York reports. "It's not looking good," Donnell said.
On Monday, Donnell stated that he felt 100 percent after doctors cleared him, but Wednesday's development leaves the tight end without a return date. While he'll likely be ruled out in advance of Sunday's game, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com speculated that Donnell may be in danger of missing the rest of the season. In the meantime, Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham will handle TE reps for the Giants, but a free-agent addition to the corps isn't out of the question.
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Unga (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Jasper Brinkley will step in at middle linebacker, but he didn't get much playing time in nickel packages last week, so he isn't a recommended IDP option for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Unga won't necessarily have an every-down role once he's healthy.
Bryant (foot) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.
Bryant came out of Sunday's win over the Dolphins without any setbacks, and while he may be a bit banged up, he doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing Thursday's game against the Panthers. Bryant will likely spend much of his afternoon matched up against star cornerback Josh Norman, though the Cowboys may be able to avoid the matchup at times by moving their superstar wideout to the slot.
Church (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest at Miami, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Playing through the residual effects of a high ankle sprain yet again, Church is one of the most reliable secondary members in terms of tackles, with 73 in nine outings. However, he has failed to factor into the turnover game in 2015, as he did in four of his first five seasons.
Claiborne (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
With Claiborne unavailable, Byron Jones figures to primarily work as a cornerback, which should free up some extra snaps for safeties Jeff Heath and J.J. Wilcox. Claiborne isn't particularly good, so his absence isn't cause to significantly downgrade the Dallas defense.
Heath will not receive a fine from the league following his hit last week on Ricardo Lockette, ESPN Dallas reports.
He was flagged after a collision with Lockette on a punt return that sent the Seahawk to the hospital for eventual neck surgery, but the NFL reviewed the play and decided no further discipline on Heath was necessary.
Hitchens (ankle) is active Sunday against the Buccaneers, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
After missing practice on Wednesday and Thurday, Hitchens put in a limited practice on Friday, so he'll see time at outside linebacker. However, he's only averaged 15 snaps over his last three contests, so he may not be a major factor against the Buccaneers.
Cowboys rookie cornerback Byron Jones will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Despite the MRI, Jones said he feels fine and has full range of motion in his shoulder.
McClain (hand) is active Sunday against the Buccaneers, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning news reports.
McClain put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday's practice. He's averaged 51 snaps over the last three games and will help to slow down Doug Martin and the Buccaneers rushing attack.
McFadden (groin) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.
McFadden didn't seem to aggravate his injury during Sunday's win over the Dolphins, finishing with 129 yards on 29 carries and 20 yards on three receptions. Assuming he practices in some capacity Wednesday, he should be fine to handle his usual massive workload in Thursday's game against a tough Carolina defense.
Romo (shoulder/back) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.
Romo reportedly had a couple of other minor concerns even before returning from his major clavicle injury for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. No matter, he turned in an effective outing and is in no real danger of missing a Thanksgiving game against the tough Carolina defense. Romo is reportedly at risk of re-breaking his clavicle, but he didn't appear hesitant in his return.
Cowboys linebacker Kyle Wilber started four of the final five games on the strong side last year, making him the favorite to start at the position in 2014, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wilber, 25, appeared in every game and finished with 42 tackles, two sacks and 14 quarterback pressures.
