The Dallas Cowboys hit the practice field again today and they look to be getting healthier. Granted they will be without La’el Collins, Sean Lee, and Ventell Bryant who are all on IR, but the guys who didn’t get moved to IR seem to be healing up nicely.
Yesterday everyone participated except for Jourdan Lewis. Today, he showed up in full pads.
Cornerback Jourdan Lewis was in full pads for the portion of practice open to the media Thursday. He has not practiced in three weeks because of a high ankle sprain suffered during training camp.

He has yet to participate in the drills, but was rehabbing on the side with the trainers. It’s not likely he would be available this week, but it looks like he’s moving toward recovery.
Cowboys nickel CB Jourdan Lewis has yet to rejoin teammates in practice since his Aug. 20 ankle injury. But gradually, he’s trending in that direction. Lewis did some rehab work today on side field with an athletic trainer.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) September 10, 2020
Earlier today, we reported on Mike McCarthy’s press conference, where the coach thinks that Amari Cooper will be at full capacity for the game. Cooper did the same routine today that he did yesterday.

CeeDee Lamb is still taking his fair share of punt return reps in practice, but it’s unclear if he will be the primary punt returner.
