Late in the season it’s not so rare to come up with more than seven inactive players.

In attempting to figure out the Dallas Cowboys’ 46-man active roster for Sunday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders, it’s easy to come up with more than seven players to sit.

First, cornerback Orlando Scandrick (back), defensive end David Irving (concussion), linebacker Justin Durant (concussion) and wide receiver Brice Butler (foot) have been ruled out because of injury.

The Cowboys also don’t need a third tailback (Trey Williams) or a fourth tight end (Blake Jarwin).

You can make the case they don’t need an eighth offensive lineman (Chaz Green), ninth defensive lineman (Daniel Ross) or eighth defensive back (Bene Benwikere), too.

So when you get down to the final few spots, who brings the most value?

Let’s start with Benwikere. He has become a pretty big part of the special-teams unit, but if something were to happen to Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis or Anthony Brown at cornerback, Benwikere can step in and play.

Given the presence of Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, Ross makes some sense because he can bring size to the defensive line at 305 pounds. Ross has yet to play since the Cowboys claimed him off the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad, but his addition was made with a long-term view.

With La’el Collins getting two practices in for the first time in three weeks because of a back injury, Green would seem to be the most dispensable. With Byron Bell already active as the swing tackle, Green’s only real function without two injuries up front would be on the field goal protection unit. Is that enough value to dress on gameday?

Jason Garrett does not like to acknowledge much. He would not rule Orlando Scandrick out of Sunday’s game against the New York Giants despite the cornerback having two broken bones in his back.

On Jason Witten’s 20-yard touchdown catch with 7:38 to play that broke a 10-10 tie, Garrett at least acknowledged the Cowboys knew the Giants were without safety Landon Collins.

On the previous play, a 54-catch by Cole Beasley, Collins suffered an ankle injury and would not return. The Cowboys were in a three-tight end formation, which is normally a run set, but Witten sprung down the seam, bent his route slightly toward the sideline and came back to the post for Dak Prescott’s perfect pass.

“He’s obviously a really good football player, but that’s a formation we had been in a lot in the ballgame,” Garrett said of Collins’ absence.

While Garrett would only say the Cowboys knew Collins would be out, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was prepared for Collins’ absence.

“We knew we were probably going to get a base look,” Linehan said. “Usually not going to get a tricked-up red zone coverage you would get if he was there. It certainly helps to run plays when one of their best players is not on the field.

“It was well executed, by the way.”

When the Dallas Cowboys are at their best, they like to say they play complementary football in which all three phases contribute.

Sunday’s 33-19 win against the Washington Redskins was the perfect example.

Ezekiel Elliott finished with 150 yards on a career-high 33 carries and had two more rushing touchdowns as the Cowboys’ offensive line controlled the tempo so well Dak Prescott did not need to do much with his arm (143 passing yards).

After giving up points on their first three drives, the Cowboys’ defense was able to sack Kirk Cousins four times, including one in the third quarter by DeMarcus Lawrence to give him 10.5 on the season and at least one sack in the first seven games. They also limited Washington to 49 rushing yards.

But it was a special teams’ play that changed the tenor of the game.

Staring at a 16-7 deficit late in the second quarter, Tyrone Crawford blocked a 36-yard field goal attempt by Nick Rose. Orlando Scandrick returned the block 90 yards to the Washington 4-yard line. Two plays later, Elliott had his second rushing touchdown of the game for a 14-13 lead.

It was the first of three fumble by the Redskins that let the Cowboys slowly take control of the game.

On the sixth play of the second half, Crawford sacked Cousins and forced a fumble that Lawrence recovered. The Cowboys were able to turn that into the first of four second-half field goals by Mike Nugent, their new kicker, filling in for Dan Bailey.

On the ensuing kickoff, Keith Smith forced a fumble on returner Chris Thompson that Bene Benwikere recovered. The Cowboys turned that into a 48-yard field goal and a 20-13 lead.

The lead grew to 26-13 before Washington made it interesting with a touchdown with 4:35 to play but then the Cowboys simply wore down the Redskins’ defense with more Elliott and a key third-down conversion from Dez Bryant to chew up more than three minutes.

It was fitting the Cowboys ended the threat of a Washington comeback when Byron Jones intercepted a Cousins’ pass that was deflected by David Irving and returned it for a touchdown. The last time the Cowboys had an interception return for a touchdown was Rolando McClain in 2015.

That was complementary football at its best.

“When you look at us last year when we went on the run, there was great complementary football,” linebacker Sean Lee said. “We were helping each other, being able to get stops and turnovers for the offense and playing well together. That’s something we have to continue to do going forward. We’ve done a better job these last two weeks.”

For the first time this season, the Cowboys have won back-to-back games and, most important, they were able to stay within shot of the 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles with their second NFC East win of the season.

Later this week, the Cowboys could learn if they will have Elliott for the rest of the season, pending his preliminary injunction hearing in New York on Monday.

If they don’t have their leading rusher for six games, either starting this week against the Kansas City Chiefs or the following week at the Atlanta Falcons, they at least can point to this formula for success.

FRISCO, Texas — Cornerback Orlando Scandrick will not play Sunday against the Denver Broncos because of a broken hand, but the Dallas Cowboys hope he will be able to return Sept. 25 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Scandrick ran Friday for the first time since the surgery Monday night to repair a fractured third metacarpal. When he returns, he will likely wear extra padding that will be sewn into his glove. In 2014, DeMarco Murray did not miss a game after he had surgery to repair a broken fifth metacarpal.

Scandrick played just nine snaps in the Cowboys’ season-opening win against the New York Giants before injuring his hand in the second quarter.

Anthony Brown will replace Scandrick in the starting lineup and rookie Chidobe Awuzie will serve as the third cornerback. Fellow rookie Jourdan Lewis, who has been slowed by a strained hamstring since the start of training camp, could be active for the first time. The Cowboys also could look to Bene Benwikere as their fourth corner.

Wide receiver Terrance Williams was limited Friday in his first practice of the week and is officially listed as questionable. Williams has not missed a game in his career (65 straight) and missed the first two practices of his career on Wednesday and Thursday. He suffered the injury on the opening snap against the Giants but was able to lead the Cowboys with 68 receiving yards on six catches.

Safety Byron Jones was limited for the second straight practice because of a groin strain, but he said he will play Sunday even though he is listed as questionable.
