The Cowboys saw tight end Martellus Bennett return to practice for the first time since he injured his ankle in the preseason game against the Vikings. But cornerback remains a concern.
Orlando Scandrick (ankle) will miss at least this week's game against the 49ers and probably a few weeks. He was not at practice. The Cowboys had hoped to get Terence Newman (groin) back to practice this week, but he was not to be seen in the 25 minutes of practice open to the media. Newman did work out at Valley Ranch on Wednesday morning. Mike Jenkins (shoulder) was stretching with his teammates, but he was not wearing pads or his helmet.
Receiver Dez Bryant (quad) was riding the bicycle in the tunnel at Cowboys Stadium. He was not dressed in uniform.
