The Dallas Cowboys were just a pair of middle linebackers away from being back at full health--not counting all those that have been sent to the injured reserve--on defense in practice on Wednesday.
Those linebackers, Sean Lee and Justin Durant, will miss two to three more weeks with hamstring issues, but cornerback Morris Claiborne returned to practice on Wednesday after missing three weeks with a strained hamstring of his own.
Also in the good health news department, defensive end DeMarcus Ware was a full participant in practice after re-aggravating that strained quad in the Week 10 loss to the Saints.
According to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, with Miles Austin back on the field as of this week, the Cowboys’ offense had all their pieces in place for Wednesday’s practice session.
