Gachkar (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Gachkar was a full participant in practice all week, so his questionable status heading into Sunday's game was likely precautionary. Look for him to take up his regular position as the starting strong-side linebacker in the Cowboy's defense.
Gachkar was questionable prior to Week 4 as well, but ended up playing. His status will be confirmed prior to the start of the game.
Gachkar was a full participant at Friday's practice and therefore is set to play Sunday. He's slated to start at strongside linebacker across from Sean Lee.
His hand is still in a cast to protect the healing digit, but Gachkar will at least have a couple of weeks to get his game legs under him. The thumb injury likely cost him any chance of winning the starting middle linebacker spot that opened up due to Rolando McClain's latest suspension, but Gachkar could still be ready for Week 1 and see significant snaps during the season.
The 27-year-old linebacker had surgery on his thumb last Friday and is currently without a timetable for return. Head coach Jason Garrett indicated he will be out "a little while." He is currently doing conditioning work with the team.
