Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins could practice as early as Saturday and may be ready for the Giants on Sept. 5, after he passed his physical, according to the Cowboys website.
Jenkins will have to sit out for a three-day waiting period before he can practice. He had been on the physically unable to perform list (PUP).
Jenkins missed all of the offseason, training camp and all four preseason games after undergoing rotator cuff surgery in January.
If Jenkins plays or doesn't play, expect Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne to start, with Orlando Scandrick and Jenkins giving the Cowboys secondary some depth.

ARLINGTON, Texas Stephen McGee may not have won the Cowboys' No. 3 quarterback job Wednesday night, but he didn't lose it, either.
If the Cowboys keep a third quarterback, it will be McGee. He started and played the entire first half of Wednesday's JV scrimmage of a preseason game against the Dolphins.
The Cowboys won, 30-13. Because the game was played just four days...

Jerry Jones informed us today that it is “not impossible” that Jason Witten suits up and plays against the Cowboys on Wednesday. Now, I am not a psych major, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but when an owner uses a double negative to describe the status of a player, it is not good news.
As far as the fantasy football community is concerned, this should serve...
The NFL odds look to be in the Cowboys’ favor for their preseason finale against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins, but stranger things have happened, especially in exhibition play. Dallas is coming off a 20-19 win last week over the St. Louis Rams, though the score looked much closer than it really was. The Cowboys were actually up 17-3 after the first quarter and 20-6 at...
According to Matt Mosley of FOX Sports, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has a “50-50″ chance of playing in next Wednesday’s season opener against the Giants.

Trade for Cowboys: The Cowboys are clearly desperate for interior offensive line help. After losing both of their starting guards this offseason, the Cowboys replaced them with Nate Livings, an inferior player who really struggled in Cincinnati last year, and Mackenzy Bernadeau, a career backup who has yet to nail down a starting job thanks to injuries. 2011 4th round pick David...

According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff is questionable for next week’s season opener against the Giants.
“Nose tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle) remains questionable for the season opener next week< reported Watkins.
