Landry injured his hamstring before the Redskins’ preseason game at Indianapolis on Aug. 19 and has been limited at practice each day since the season began. He maintained all week he was preparing to play against the Cowboys, but head coach Mike Shanahan insisted the team would measure his progress daily and his availability would be a game-time decision.

Linebacker Keyaron Fox, who missed the Arizona game with a back injury, also participated fully in practice and was listed as probable, as did several others who appeared on the injury report all week – receiver/returner Brandon Banks (left knee), tight end Chris Cooley (left knee), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (toe) and tight end Logan Paulsen (hamstring).
As for the Cowboys, quarterback Tony Romo, who broke a rib and punctured a lung in the second quarter of Dallas’ overtime victory at San Francisco on Sunday, was listed as questionable to play against the Redskins after limited participation in practice.
Receiver Dez Bryant (thigh), running back Felix Jones (shoulder) and kicker David Buehler (groin) were listed as questionable by the Cowboys. Center Phil Costa (kne), cornerback Terence Newman (groin), linebacker Anthony Spencer (shoulder), cornerback Mike Jenkins (shoulder) and guard Bill Nagy (neck) were listed as probable, while receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), guard Derrick Dockery (knee) and cornerback Orlando Scandrick (ankle) will not play.
