Cowboys are looking to get better each and every day

The Dallas Cowboys are in a losing funk and desperately need to pull themselves out of it. Jason Garrett discussed how they have the same approach this week as they always do as they are simply trying to get better every day. They need to focus on their work and keep banging away. Each step of preparation is critical.

Randy Gregory is in a “we’ll see” place

Still unknown whether or not he’ll play on Sunday. Coach said he had a good practice yesterday and they will see how he does today.

The same goes for Geoff Swaim

Swaim did a “good job” in practice on Thursday, but he’s still a question mark for Sunday in Philadelphia.

Cowboys will “go through the process of the week” as far as left guard

Connor Williams will miss a game for the first time this Sunday and the Cowboys still don’t have a firm answer as to who will be their left guard against the Eagles. They will evaluate it after today’s practice and make a decision.

Dallas doesn’t anticipate Taco Charlton practicing on Friday

No Taco this particular Friday. Looks like he might miss the game.

Dorance Armstrong is “doing a good job”

Garrett noted Armstrong is doing a good job with his work and that he has played a lot of snaps for a rookie. Called Armstrong very professional and that he loves football. Said his character was so positive during the draft process. He’s been everything they thought he would be. He doesn’t say a lot but he works.

Daniel Ross is progressing

Coach noted that Ross is progressing and is learning his technique and assignments better. He can now make a splash play but also do the little things on other plays like playing the right assignment, etc.

Noah Brown's return is still unsure

Garrett wouldn’t commit to Brown playing this week. He did note that he had carved out a role at the end of last year, that’s he a good blocker and can catch he ball when given the opportunity.
