Everyone practices for Cowboys on Wednesday

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Tuesday that he expects the team to be healthy for Sunday’s game against the Packers and Wednesday’s practice offered plenty of evidence to support that feeling.

All of the players on Dallas’ active roster took part in the practice, which was the first of three this week leading up to the home date with Green Bay. Among the key players on that list is left tackle Tyron Smith, who missed the final week of the regular season with a knee sprain.

Smith said that he would be fine in time for the team’s first playoff game and is on track for that despite not being dressed in full pads for Wednesday’s session. Defensive linemen Tyrone Crawford, Terrell McClain and DeMarcus Lawrence and cornerback Morris Claiborne are others who continued on the path back to the lineup during practice.

Guard La’el Collins is not yet back on the active roster after being placed on injured reserve due to a toe injury, but also took part in the practice and could return to duty this week.

  1. Glad to hear it. Wish the Packers were healthy. Sam Shields and Jordy would make this a different game but that’s football.

    Two best teams in the NFC when healthy. Should be good.

    Good to hear it too. #noexcuses

    Packers will play twice in Texas these next weeks.


    I didn’t know they had a scrimmage with the Texans during the championship game weekend.

  3. Green Bay will do battle with whoever they have, and they can still compete with anybody.

    Four turnovers killed them the last time they played the Cowboys. That won’t happen twice (I hope!)

  4. A grand total of four points and two plays is the reason the Cowboys are not undefeated. And they don’t have some cupcake AFC East schedule every year to make them look better than they are. They will win the Super Bowl and it’s not really even debatable.

    Dez Caught It

    Sure he did………in Bizarro World.

  6. Last time, Dez didn’t play…..Dak had 5 starts under his belt….Zeke went for 150+….Jordy played….at Lambeau.

    This time, Dez will play….Dak has 16 starts under his belt….Zeke will go for 150+….Jordy won’t play….at AT&T.

    Dallas won that game 30-16.

    Yup, he did. It’s crying shame he didn’t maintain possession while going to the ground, though. You know, that’s part of the NFL rules, too.

  8. @filthymcnasty3,

    Uhhhhhhh, the Cowboys beat Detroit in the playoffs in 2014, Swifty. Had the refs got the call right for Dez’s catch in GB, it certainly could have ended differently in that game, aND the Cowboys may have been ablessed to advance. But, the refs got it wrong.

    And for those of you who don’t understand the catch rule, here it is: A player who makes a catch may advance the ball. A forward pass is complete (by the offense) or intercepted (by the defense) if a player, who is inbounds:

    (a) secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and

    (b) touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and

    (c) maintains control of the ball after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, until he has the ball long enough to clearly become a runner. A player has the ball long enough to become a runner when, after his second foot is on the ground, he is capable of avoiding or warding off impending contact of an opponent, tucking the ball away, turning up field, or taking additional steps. What part of this rule did Dez NOT fulfill with his “non-catch” in 2014?

    So what, there was still a ton of time left and the way the Packers were moving the ball on offense in the second half they likely would have come down and at least gotten a field goal anyway. You act like it was a last second play.
