LANDOVER, Maryland — Right tackle Doug Free is inactive for the second straight week with left foot and ankle injuries as the Dallas Cowboys face the Washington Redskins in their regular-season finale.

The Cowboys are also missing linebacker Rolando McClain, who was previously ruled out because of illness. McClain's difficult week included a fire that destroyed his $1.5 million home in Alabama.

The game's result will likely mean little in the Cowboys' pursuit of a first-round playoff bye, but coach Jason Garrett opted not to rest quarterback Tony Romo and running back DeMarco Murray.

Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson is active after missing three games with a sprained left knee. Defensive end Jason Hatcher was placed on injured reserve Saturday with a swollen right knee.
