Here is a look at who played how much against the Cowboys on Thursday.

Offense: 65 snaps

Quarterback: Robert Griffin III 65

Offensive line: Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 65

Wide receiver: Josh Morgan 42, Leonard Hankerson 37, Santana Moss 33, Pierre Garçon 29, Aldrick Robinson 10, Brandon Banks 9

2.5 WR/snap Garçon was very productive in his relatively limited action with five receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown. Banks’ snap count was his highest since the Vikings game in Week 6.

Tight end: Logan Paulsen 65, Niles Paul 13, Chris Cooley 3

You would figure that Cooley’s snaps would start to climb as the weeks go on but they have declined from 20 his first game back to 11 to 9 and the three this week.

Running back: Alfred Morris 52, Darrel Young 23, Evan Royster 9

Morris continues to evolve into an every-down back as his pass protection skills improve. After a light load against the Eagles, Young played about his season average in terms of percentage of offensive plays.

Defense: 82 snaps

Defensive line: Barry Cofield 55, Stephen Bowen 53, Jarvis Jenkins 33, Kedric Golston 28, Chris Baker 9

Cofield tied for his second-highest snap count of the year; only in Week 6 against the Vikings did he play more.

Linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan 82, Perry Riley 81, London Fletcher 63, Lorenzo Alexander 41, Rob Jackson 36, Keenan Robinson 19, Mario Addison 5

Kerrigan resumed his Iron Man role, playing every snap. We will find out later today if Robinson’s 19 snaps, tied for his season high, will be his last of the year.

Defensive backs: Madieu Williams, Josh Wilson, DeAngelo Hall all played 82 snaps; DeJon Gomes 73, Cedric Griffin 72, Jordan Pugh 4, Reed Doughty 1, D. J. Johnson 1

Oddly, Doughty started the game per both Pro Football Focus and the NFL and that was his only defensive snap. Griffin saw by far his heaviest workload of the season thanks to Tony Romo throwing 62 passes.
