Receiver Kevin Ogletree was held out of Tuesday’s afternoon practice with a sore hamstring, but is not expected to miss Saturday’s exhibition game against the Texans in Houston. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett described Ogeltree’s status as “practice to practice,” but he is expected to return on Wednesday.
"He's a little sore," receivers coach Ray Sherman said. "He'll be all right; he just needed some rest."
Offensive tackle Alex Barron, who is recovering from an ankle injury, was limited in practice on Tuesday as a precautionary measure. The team has named Barron as the starting right tackle for Saturday night’s “dress rehearsal” in Houston--replacing the injured Marc Colombo--and coaches remain confident that he’ll be able to fill this role as planned.
Unlike Ogletree, Barron suited up and participated in individual drills, but sat out for team drills. Offensive line coach Hudson Houck said that the team is attempting to bring Barron back gradually in order to avoid a setback.
*Also: Rookie linebacker Sean Lee, who is set to replace Keith Brooking on the first team offense Saturday, is dealing with a bruised wrist. The injury s not thought, by anyone to be serious, and it shouldn’t affect his status for Saturday.
