One more go around with coach Jason Garrett this week as the Cowboys finish up preparations for the Eagles. Let’s see what coach had to say. (With no audio available for today’s press conference we rely on media tweets)
[UPDATE]: Great news if this source turns out to be correct.
All injured Cowboys, save for Anthony Brown, are expected to practice today and play against the Eagles, barring a setback, per sources— Clarence Hill Jr (@clarencehilljr) October 18, 2019
Coach Garrett held his press conference today but with issues on the audio portion of the press conference, we’ll go to media tweets for coverage.
Some injury news as Anthony Brown and Joe Looney will be out of practice today.
Jason Garrett said Anthony Brown and Joe Looney will not practice.— Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) October 18, 2019
The good news out of that is that it appears Tyron Smith, La’el Collins, Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Zack Martin and Byron Jones will all be active in some capacity at today’s practice.
Jason Garrett just confirmed this...Tyron Smith, Lael Collins, Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Byron Jones, Zack Martin will do something in practice today.— Clarence Hill Jr (@clarencehilljr) October 18, 2019
Joe Looney and Anthony Brown will not practice https://t.co/mp2tuGJ4sf
Here is a little more clarification on what the status is for those players today.
Jason Garrett hopes Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad), WR Randall Cobb (back) and CB Byron Jones (hamstring) will practice today for first time this week. LT Tyron Smith (ankle) and RT La’el Collins (knee) to do “a little bit more.” CB Anthony Brown, C Joe Looney won’t practice. pic.twitter.com/GlwjcGu7Zb— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) October 18, 2019
Yesterday Collins and Smith worked in individual drills and were termed as “limited” in practice. It sounds like the team expects them to do more today, a sign that they could be able to play on Sunday.
With Anthony Brown unable to practice today, it looks like we’ll finally get more Jourdan Lewis in the secondary.
