In dismissing the idea of injured receiver Miles Austin returning this week, owner and general manager Jerry Jones mentioned that guard Nate Livings might return, after missing the last couple of weeks with a hamstring issue--and sure enough, Livings got back on the practice field on Monday.

“He’s played in this league,” Jason Garrett said. “He needs to play in our offense more, the communication playing next to guys, the different adjustments we need to make. But he’s got a very calm demeanor up there, a quiet intensity about him we like. He’s a professional.
“It’s good to get him back here.’’
