David Irving, Geoff Swaim ruled out.

The Cowboys have ruled out just two players for this week's home regular-season finale against Tampa Bay. Tight end Geoff Swaim is still sidelined with a wrist injury. Defensive end David Irving didn't practice this week and is out as well, though it's becoming less and less certain that Irving's problems might be attitude rather than injury related.

The full injury report released Friday:

WR Tavon Austin returned to limited work in practice this week. He missed the last eight games with a groin injury, but did some work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

WR Cole Beasley sprained his right foot against New Orleans. He played against Philadelphia and Indianapolis, but limped off the field at one point against the Colts. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but went through full practice on Thursday and Friday.

CB Anthony Brown was already listed with a hand injury, then had a back issue arise this week. He played against Philadelphia and and Indianapolis and went through full practice on Wednesday, but was limited on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday.

DL David Irving left practice seven weeks ago with a high-ankle sprain. He hasn’t played the last seven games and didn’t practice on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and is out versus Tampa Bay.

LB Sean Lee returned to action against the Colts, but played just a few snaps. He went through limited practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

RG Zack Martin came out of the Philadelphia game with a sprained MCL. He didn’t play against the Colts and didn’t practice on Wednesday. But he returned to limited practice on Thursday and Friday.

OT Tyron Smith played against Philadelphia and Indianapolis despite a neck injury. He went through a full practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
