The Cowboys made a minor roster move when they cut TE Scott Chandler and brought up TE Martin Rucker who had been on the practice squad. Rucker info:
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 255 | Age: 25
College: Missouri | Experience: 2nd season
Bradie James, Keith Brooking and Marion Barber all missed practice today. Barber is the most likely not to play, opening the door for Tashard Choice.
Count offensive line coach Hudson Houck as a fan of the full pads practice.
``I don't think there's any question about it,'' Houck said. ``That's how it was here when Jimmy Johnson was coaching. That's how it is with a lot of teams. Some teams never take the pads off all week. We're not to that degree, but I thnk it does help.''
