The Cowboys were in full pads for Tuesday’s practice. Three starters were absent from the practice.
Cornerback Terrence Newman (ankle), nose tackle Jay Ratliff (calf), and linebacker Bradie James (knee) did not participate in the practice, but they are all expected to be healthy enough to go when the Cowboys welcome the Detroit Lions to to town on Sunday.
The other starting cornerback who was injured in Sunday’s game, Mike Jenkins (neck), was dressed and participated today. Also returning to practice was defensive end Jason Hatcher (groin) who has been out since Dallas lost to Jacksonville.
