The Cowboys have five starters rehabbing today instead of practicing. Two other key backups also are out.

That means a shorter practice with less work in individual drills, coach Jason Garrett said.

Receiver Amari Cooper (quadriceps), receiver Randall Cobb (back), left tackle Tyron Smith (ankle), right tackle La’el Collins (knee), cornerback Byron Jones (hamstring), cornerback Anthony Brown (hamstring) and defensive end Dorance Armstrong (neck) are not expected to work with the team today.

Cooper played only three snaps against the Jets, catching one pass for 3 yards before leaving Sunday.

“We’ll take his situation day by day,” Garrett said of Cooper. “Obviously, he’s as tough as they come and does everything he can to get himself in position to play and play through some of those things. He’s done that throughout his career. He’s done that for us. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out the other day. We’ll take his situation day by day, and hopefully he can practice as the week goes on.”

  1. Getting in the excuses in early huh?

    Nothing at all to do with the fact the cowboys have been exposed against good teams.

    They are there for the taking, go get em birds

  2. Tough break for dallas but us philly fans have been dealing with this all season long. No excuses for either team. Should be a good game. Go birds!

  3. Randall Cobb is still beloved in Green Bay, but this is why the ways parted.
    Still, as beat up as Philly is, Dallas will get out coached, of that you can be sure.
