DeMarcus Ware and Morris Claiborne started the week on rehab duty as the Cowboys began practice following their bye.
Ware aggravated his quadriceps injury two weeks ago against the Saints. Claiborne is recovering from a hamstring injury.
The Cowboys also practiced without linebackers Sean Lee and Justin Durant, each out three to four weeks with hamstring injuries from the Saints game.
Practicing were safety J.J. Wilcox, who has missed a month with a sprained knee, and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher, who missed the Saints game with a stinger.
