New York Giants guard Geoff Schwartz is active for the first time this season and starting at right tackle for Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Schwartz is filling in for the injured Justin Pugh (quad). He is one of two moves on the line. Adam Snyder is replacing rookie Weston Richburg at left guard.

Schwartz has missed the first 10 games of the season with a toe injury.

Dallas defensive tackle Josh Brent is inactive with a groin injury.

New York also is without linebacker Jacquian Williams (concussion) and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf). Mark Herzlich is replacing Williams and Mike Patterson is replacing Jenkins in the starting lineup.
