The Cowboys seem to have benefited from the off-week. Left guard Kyle Kosier, who left the Texans game with a knee problem and did not practice last week, has the right knee taped but is practicing.
So are tight end Jason Witten (sprained knee) and wide receivers Sam Hurd (hip) and Dez Bryant (ribs). Witten did not practice last week and Hurd and Bryant missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday.
Witten did not participate in the first part of the drills and worked with trainers on the sideline. But he is fully cressed, has his helmet and gloves on and appears ready for the workout.
