The debate over the Washington Redskins name will follow the team on the road when it faces the rival Dallas Cowboys.

The Oneida Indian Nation said Thursday it will air a radio ad called “Bipartisan” on the Cowboys’ flagship station ahead of Sunday’s game.

The ad, which is part of an anti-“Redskins” campaign, features President Barack Obama — a Democrat — saying he would think about changing the name if he owned the team, and Congressman Tom Cole — a Republican — saying the name is “offensive.”

Briefly

• Buccaneers: General manager Mark Dominik says the team received confirmation that guard Carl Nicks has MRSA — a staph infection that is resistant to some antibiotics — again in the “same place, same location.” Nicks missed most of training camp after surgery on his left big toe when he was initially diagnosed with MRSA in late August.

• Eagles: Coach Chip Kelly might wait until Sunday before deciding on his starting quarterback for Philadelphia’s game at Tampa Bay. Michael Vick is nursing a pulled hamstring and has been limited all week.

• Jets: After considering retirement the last few months, quarterback David Garrard has returned to serve as a veteran backup and mentor to rookie Geno Smith.

• Texans: Wide receiver Andre Johnson has missed much of practice this week with a hamstring injury and will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against St. Louis.

• Lions: Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) will be a game-time decision Sunday against Green Bay.
