Dallas Cowboys safety Charlie Peprah is active for the first time in a month for Sunday's game against New Orleans, and cornerback Morris Claiborne is active after missing one game with a concussion.

Peprah was out three games after spraining his right foot in practice about a week after sustaining a concussion against Washington. His presence should help in pass coverage against Drew Brees and the Saints.

Peprah signed as a free agent in October as injuries piled up for the Dallas defense.

Saints fullback Jed Collins (right toe, left knee) and backup running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) are inactive. Running back Pierre Thomas is active after being limited in practice with knee soreness.
