The latest on the Cowboys injuries heading into the Oakland game.

Dallas Cowboys right tackle La’el Collins is expected to practice for the first time in two weeks, although he has been playing in the games during that time period. Collins has a bulging disk issue in his back which has been causing discomfort, but it would appear that the problem has eased somewhat if he is returning to practice, even if it is only on a limited basis.

Unfortunately defensive tackle David Irving isn’t likely to practice again today as he continues to recover from a concussion suffered towards the end of the Washington game. He has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game just yet.

Additionally, veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick isn’t expected to practice today and the Cowboys may choose to rest him another game as he recovers from his back injury.

The Cowboys are taking a page out of last week’s playbook and practicing outside on Thursday again this week.

Last week they did it to prepare for the cold weather that was anticipated in New York. The weather in Oakland on Sunday night is not expected to be as cold as it was in New York last week, but it will still be chilly.
