Tight end Martellus Bennett has recovered from his concussion after missing two games. Bennett joked this week about still being "crazy."
Wade Phillips chimed in Friday, saying Bennett had "matured" while he was away.
It's been a disappointing season for Bennett. He has caught 15 passes for 159 yards and no touchdowns.
The Cowboys had expected more, especially on the goal line, after Bennett made 20 receptions for 283 yards and four touchdowns last season as a rookie.
The Cowboys are hoping the two weeks off helped Bennett find his game.
"He's done well in practice," Phillips said. "He's looked very good. He's looked like he did when he went out. ...He looks fresh. He's running routes good, and he looks like he's blocking well."
