Cowboys Nearing Full Strength After Thursday Practice

Tony Romo returned to the Cowboys practice field today. That alone is newsworthy, but so is who else was involved.

While all were limited participants, Dez Bryant, Orlando Scandrick, and Lance Dunbar were also involved after having missed the last few games. Other key players like Morris Claiborne and Tyron Smith, who had have their own injury concerns, were also practicing.

Only backups, offensive tackle Chaz Green and defensive end Ryan Davis, did not participate today.

Also, as of last week, James Hanna, Darren McFadden, and Jaylon Smith are all eligible to return from their respective PUP and NFI lists. No word has come yet on when those moves might happen.

With the bye week gone and 10 weeks left in the regular season, the Cowboys are closer to full strength than at any point so far in 2016.

Romo will not start this week against the Philadelphia Eagles, but his participation now means a return next week in Cleveland is not off the table.

What do you think?
