AP Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins returned to practice on Sunday after rehabbing an injured shoulder for the entire offseason.  He would have been back to practice on Saturday, but was dealing with a migraine. “He had severe migraines,” Cowboys head oach Jason Garrett said. “So he came in and just wasn’t able to function as a person so we tried our best to get that right.
