Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, DeMarcus Ware and Phil Costa went through a full practice Sunday for the Cowboys, three days before the season opener against the New York Giants. However, tight end Jason Witten, trying to recover from a lacerated spleen, and cornerback Mike Jenkins were limited, and nose tackle Jay Ratliff did not practice.
This was the first injury report of the season released by the team. All but Jenkins were at practice Saturday, but the team was not required to release an injury report, so their level of participation was not provided then.
But for the Cowboys, it is good news that four of their starters went through a full practice. Austin was sidelined almost all of training camp because of a hamstring injury, Bryant rested because of knee tendinitis, Ware also had a hamstring injury, and Costa had a lower back injury that kept him out of three preseason games.
Limited in practice Sunday were linebacker Dan Connor (hip) and receiver Andre Holmes (knee) and linebacker Kyle Wilber (thumb).
Not practicing were safety Matt Johnson (hamstring), safety Danny McCray (neck) and nose tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle).
