NFL: Dallas Cowboys-Minicamp Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Looking back as to where they are coming out of their bye, the Dallas Cowboys should feel very good about themselves. They’ve won their last two games and are tied for the third-best record in the NFC. There may also be help on the way in the form of Odell Beckham Jr. Most importantly, they are getting healthier as the season has progressed.

After much discussion about his role on the team and owner Jerry Jones steadfast in his defense, Ezekiel Elliott was back at practice in a limited capacity. Elliott’s involvement in practice should be monitored closely throughout the week but Jones said he expects Elliott to play this week against Green Bay.

Linebacker Anthony Barr was listed as not practicing, still nursing an injury following the game against the Chicago Bears. Noah Brown and Donovan Wilson were limited. After missing the game against the Bears, Malik Hooker returned to practice in full, as did rookie Sam Williams.

The Cowboys also activated defensive end Tarell Basham, who was hasn’t played since the season opener.

There was also a Tyron Smith sighting as he is getting closer to a return.
