The Dallas Cowboys are a banged up team and they had seven players who did not practice on Wednesday. Six of the seven came on the defensive side of the ball, but only two were starters. Center Phil Costa sat out practice due to a back injury, and starting defensive end Marcus Spears was out with a knee injury.
Safety Barry Church was able to be a full go on Wednesday after he left Sunday's game in the first half against the Seattle Seahawks with a quadriceps bruise. Getting him back on the field, and him being able to fully practice was a minor surprise.
