Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones said he expects cornerback Morris Claiborne and defensive ends Tyrone Carwford and DeMarcus Lawrence to be on the field when the Cowboys host the Packers, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

"[Crawford's] work there at left defensive end will be completely a must that we get a good performance out of him," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's G-Bag Nation show [KRLD-FM]. "[Lawrence] is really as ready as he's been all season. We just have to see how he holds up."

Crawford has missed the past two games with a shoulder issue. Lawrence's back prevented him from playing in the last four regular-season games.

Claiborne suffered a groin injury in Week 8. He's missed the past nine games.

"He's going to have rust because he's been off but some of the things he does, you can't coach," Jones said of Claiborne. "And they're not necessarily from experience, they're just his natural gifts. We'll benefit from those. We certainly know that he was playing at the highest level and best level that he's played in his career before he got his setback, his injury.

"I would hope that he could take right up where he left off. That's probably optimistic but we will certainly be better off with him being out there than we would be if he were watching the game."
