The Dallas Cowboys convened for practice on Wednesday as they prepare for their trip to face the New England Patriots on Sunday. The injury report for the Cowboys is better than you might expect after all the injuries late in the Detroit game.
The one player who couldn’t practice because of injury was right tackle La’el Collins. He’s battling knee and back issues and sat out today. Linebacker Joe Thomas also missed practice but that was due to illness instead of injury.
An injured offensive lineman, Connor Williams, returned today much earlier than expected.

Most thought Williams might miss a few games but it’s possible he could play this week. He was officially listed as limited. Fellow lineman Zack Martin was limited, but that has been standard practice this year. Antwaun Woods was also limited.
In good news, Amari Cooper was a full participant in practice today. His health is of major concern as the Cowboys will certainly need him against the Patriots. Jeff Heath and DeMarcus Lawrence were also full participants today.
The Patriots were without two receivers today as Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu were both unable to go.
