Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said offensive guard Nate Livings will practice Monday.
It will be the first padded work for Livings since the third day of camp, when he suffered a hamstring injury. He and Mackenzy Bernadeau, signed as free agents to be the starting guards, have not practiced together yet.
Starting center Phil Costa is still expected to miss a little time, but it’s a start toward health for the offensive line the Cowboys envisioned – left tackle Tyron Smith, left guard Livings, center Costa, right guard Bernadeau and right tackle Doug Free.
The Cowboys don’t expect receiver Miles Austin to practice.
They would also like to see the return of receiver Danny Coale, who suffered a quadriceps injury three days after being cleared to practice following his recovery from a broken foot.
