The Cowboys are getting healthier. Only two players sat out practice. Linebackers Sean Lee (hamstring) and Justin Durant (hamstring) will not play this week.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring), defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck), linebacker DeVonte Holloman (neck) and defensive end DeMarcus Ware (thigh) were limited Wednesday.
Receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), receiver Dez Bryant (back), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (ribs), defensive end George Selvie (shoulder) and safety J.J. Wilcox (knee) were full participants.
"It just is what it is, and you have to embrace what the opportunity is," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "It’s certainly good to get some of these guys who have been out back. Reinforcements is a good word – guys who have been really good players for us, starting players for us, getting back in the lineup and playing a lot of snaps. Then, hopefully you get some of the backup guys who have been playing more snaps get them into a role they’re more comfortable with and more suited to. Certainly losing a guy like Sean Lee, Justin Durant, those guys are good players. You want them all out there healthy. It is what it is and you just make sure you take full advantage of whatever opportunity you have and make sure young guys understand if they’re going into play, they’ve got to be ready to play. We’re counting on them."
