Just a week away from the opening of training camp, the Dallas Cowboys reportedly got three pretty big names back from injury on Monday.
According to a source in contact with the Dallas Morning News, running back Felix Jones, nose tackle Jay Ratliff and defensive end Sean Lissemore were medically cleared to return to practice on Monday. On Wednesday, Dallas will begin their pre-camp mini-camp for rookies and a handful of veterans at Valley Ranch, and training camp proper begins next Monday in Oxnard, Ca.
Jones is coming off surgery on his right shoulder, while Ratliff has spent most of the offseason recovering from a torn plantar fascia suffered early this summer. Lissemore, who will likely see an expanded role in 2012, was limited throughout OTAs and the offseason workout program with a rib injury.
