Defensive end Jason Hatcher was back at practice on a limited basis. He was wearing a brace on his left elbow, which he hyperextended in a recent practice.
"It felt pretty good," Hatcher said. "They told me to go individual [drills] and kind of work my way back in. Monday, I'll get in there and mix it up a little bit and see how it feels."
Hatcher was injured when he tried to grab running back Felix Jones.
"I had Leonard Davis pushing on my back, and I reached out to tackle Felix Jones, and he ran through my arm," Hatcher said. "It was just one of those freak things."
The Cowboys have been hit hard by injuries in the defensive line. Sean Lissemore (strained groin) and Josh Brent (hand) still are out. Brent is scheduled to have a cast put on his hand Sunday, coach Wade Phillips said. The Cowboys cut defensive end Lorenzo Washington, who couldn't get on the field because of a hamstring injury, and signed Jimmy Saddler-McQueen as a camp body.
