FOXBORO (CBS) — As expected, the Patriots’ offense will be shorthanded when they host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.

Both Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are inactive for Sunday’s game in Foxboro, leaving the Patriots very thin at wide receiver. Julian Edelman (who’s playing despite a shoulder injury), N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers will carry the bulk of the load at the receiver spots, while Matthew Slater may see some rare offensive snaps, too.

The Patriots will also be without tight end Ryan Izzo (healthy scratch) and running back Damien Harris (hamstring) on Sunday.

In news that will surprise nobody, Tom Brady is active for the Patriots. He popped up on the injury report on Friday with an elbow injury — one that reportedly forced him to end practice early on Friday — but will be under center when this one begins.

In what is something of a surprise on defense, cornerback Jason McCourty is inactive. He, too, appeared on the injury report on Friday for the first time, dealing with a groin issue.
