The good news is that the Cowboys appear to be getting healthier as the team looks to create some more space between them and the rest of the division.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne did miss practice today, but it was due to an illness and not the shoulder injury that he has battled through all season.
The news comes courtesy of ESPN Dallas.
Miles Austin also did not practice, but that was due to the team giving him the day off to rest. He was present at practice and in a cap. Nick Hayden rode a stationary bike today and did not participate in practice either.
As for DeMarcus Ware, he did rehab work separate from the rest of the team, but he too was at the Cowboys practice facilities.
As for the rest of the guys dealing with injuries, including Lance Dunbar, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Ronald Leary and Jason Hatcher, all were present and practicing with the team today.
We're almost halfway through the season and sitting atop the division. Our guys are getting healthier and working their way back to being in great shape. This week's game against the Detroit Lions won't be easy but looking at the position that the team is at within the division right now, there is plenty to be optimistic about.
