Six Cowboys missed practice Thursday, including tackle Kenyon Coleman (knee), center Phil Costa (back), safety Matt Johnson (hamstring), punter Chris Jones (knee), nose tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle) and linebacker Anthony Spencer (shoulder).
Spencer's status for Monday's game is uncertain but he does have an extra day to prepare and heal up. Costa, Jones, Johnson and Ratliff are unlikely to play against the Bears.
Coleman is doubtful as well.
That safety Gerald Sensabaugh was able to do limited work in practice after missing last week's game with a calf strain is a sign that he is on target to return the Bears game as he promised earlier in the week.
