After a long time away from the football field, since last Thursday on Thanksgiving Day, the Cowboys gathered again for a Wednesday practice. Earlier today, Mike McCarthy said it would be a light practice since the players had been off for so long and that they were treating it like a return from a bye week.

We don’t have a full injury report and it’s unclear if one will come out today, but posted what they could from the early parts of practice. Both Zack Martin and Cam Erving were absent from the early part of practice. Both are expected to be out for multiple weeks, although earlier today coach McCarthy said that Erving’s recovery should be faster than Martin’s.

It was also noted that defensive end Aldon Smith was absent from the early part of practice with no explanation given. Cornerback Anthony Brown was doing work on the side as he tries to recover from his rib injury that kept him out of the Washington game. Safety Steven Parker hurt his foot in the Washington game and was absent from the early part of practice.

The Cowboys will not practice on Thursday, instead they will virtually attend a memorial service for coach Markus Paul. They will return to practice on Friday.
