Yesterday's practice report was enough to give the Dallas Cowboys momentum sweeping across the fanbase a momentary pause. It was expected that Doug Free and Bruce Carter would be out, both are ruled out of Sunday's game. But when names like Tyron Smith and DeMarco Murray popped up on the list, fan focus became more intense. Not too worry, everything looks back to normal today.
As OCC noted earlier this morning, Tyron Smith does not have a high-ankle sprain after going through an MRI and Smith has said he'll be fine to go on Sunday. To prove the point he returned to the practice field today. Also back was DeMarco Murray who only missed yesterday with an illness. There was some concern about Tony Romo, who took his regular Wednesday off, but his ankle and ribs were also an issue this week, leading to speculation that he might not practice again today. Instead, Romo returned to the practice field.
"We’ve worked diligently since the game, treatment and all of the other stuff you can do. It’s responding to it well," Romo said Wednesday. "I’ll be good to go."
Anthony Spencer missed practice yesterday, not because of anything to do with his surgically-repaired knee, but because he had a minor foot issue. It wasn't enough to keep him out of practice today. That's good news as neithan20000 reminds us that Spencer is rounding back into form.
That leaves Doug Free and Bruce Carter out, along with Rolando McClain who is dealing with family issues back in Alabama and should be back tomorrow. The other Cowboy missing practice is defensive end Jack Crawford.
