With Phil Costa (ankle) and Ryan Cook (knee) out of practice Wednesday, Mackenzy Bernadeau and Kevin Kowalski took snaps at center."I got a few more [reps than usual]," Kowalski said. "I split center a little bit with Mack, so that was good. I got some reps and be with the ones and run our offense again a little bit."
Kowalski is in his second week of practice after coming off the physically unable to perform list last week. He missed the off-season, training camp and the first nine weeks of the regular season while rehabbing from severe tendinitis in his ankle, which required surgery.
Dallas has until the end of next week to decide whether to activate Kowalski, but he said he is healthy enough to play now if the Cowboys need him.
"I’m just each day getting more prepared, and that’s on them [to decide whether he plays]," Kowalski said. "My job is to be prepared whenever they need me."
