The Dallas Cowboys might return key defenders for Sunday night's game against the Giants in New Jersey.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning that he's optimistic linebacker Justin Durant and safety J.J. Wilcox will be available Sunday.
Jones also said cornerback Morris Claiborne was doubtful for Sunday's game.
The return of Wilcox and Durant could provide a boost to a defense ranked 26th in the NFL in takeaways with 11 and 25th in yards per play at 5.8.
Wilcox (thigh bruise) and Durant (strained hamstring) had been out since the team's game against Washington on Thanksgiving.
