NFL

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP)Dallas cornerback Jourdan Lewis won’t play against the Los Angeles Rams due to an ankle injury.

Star receiver Amari Cooper is in the lineup for the inaugural game at SoFi Stadium on Sunday night despite a hamstring worry.

Lewis has started 12 games over his first three seasons with Dallas, but he missed the last three weeks of practice after injuring his ankle early in training camp.

The Cowboys already are without starting right tackle La’el Collins and backup linebacker Sean Lee on injured reserve for coach Mike McCarthy’s debut.

The Rams have no major injuries, and fourth-string rookie running back Xavier Jones is active for his NFL debut. Center Brian Allen, who started Los Angeles’ first nine games last year before a season-ending knee injury, is inactive.

COWBOYS-RAMS INACTIVES

Rams: RB Raymond Calais, C Brian Allen, OL Tremayne Anchrum, WR Trishton Jackson, TE Brycen Hopkins, DL Eric Banks.

Cowboys: QB Ben DiNucci, CB Jourdan Lewis, S Reggie Robinson, LB Luke Gifford, OG Connor McGovern, TE Sean McKeon.
