Miles Austin and Tony Fiammetta have returned to practice for the Dallas Cowboys, and the club hopes having those guys back lifts the passing and running attacks. Austin has missed six games this season because of hamstring injuries. He missed two games earlier this season with an injury to his left hamstring, and the last four games with a right hamstring problem. Fiammetta missed the last three games with an undisclosed illness. The Cowboys have had their best rushing days with him at fullback, crashing open holes for rookie sensation DeMarco Murray. The Cowboys are coming off a loss in Arizona in which the offense scored just 13 points. On Sunday night they play the New York Giants for first place in the NFC East.
