Cowboys CB Chidobe Awuzie (back) still limited. He didn't take part in drills open to the media but said in locker room that he did practice some afterward pic.twitter.com/YV8LAQPCR1— Jori Epstein (@JoriEpstein) September 6, 2018
It also looks like the problems with Chidobe Awuzie’s back are not going to stop him from practicing even though he is listed as limited.

As long as there are no setbacks tomorrow, the Cowboys starting corner should suit up for Sunday.
The Cowboys are going to need Kavon Frazier on Sunday because Xavier Woods isn’t going to be able to go. He’s targeting the home opener in Week 2, but even that is questionable.
Injured Cowboys S Xavier Woods said his hamstring is "coming along real good. I've worked a lot of that [soreness] out." Said he's back to running, but not full speed and hasn't done any football movements yet. He's hopeful he can play in home opener, but depends on next few days— Brandon George (@DMN_George) September 6, 2018
The good news is that Kavon Frazier, even though he is listed as limited, says he’s fine for Sunday.
Cowboys S Kavon Frazier said his injured left shoulder will be fine for Sunday's opener at Carolina: "Two full practices and no setbacks, I'm good. I've been wearing a harness and a shoulder brace, but I'm out there. I'm ready to go."— Brandon George (@DMN_George) September 6, 2018
It looks like Jeff Heath and Frazier will be the starters at safety on Sunday, with Heath dropping back into the coverage role while Frazier prowls in the box.
Parker Ehinger sounds like he is not going to go on Sunday, read our report from earlier today. As expected, neither Travis Frederick or Datone Jones participated in today’s practice, and likely won’t for a while.
On the Panthers side, both Daryl Williams and Amini Silatolu are still listed as limited participants in practice.
