The Dallas Cowboys have been hit with some injuries over the first half of the season so far, some worse than others. But there is some good news regarding most of the players, via ESPN.

Morris Claiborne, corner back, sat out of today’s practice with an illness. Claiborne has been hit with the injury bug this season, as he suffered a separated shoulder in week 1.

Miles Austin, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, didn’t participate in practice; he was given the day off to rest his legs.

DeMarcus Ware participated in some rehabbing, but only for a part of practice.

Regarding some of the Cowboys’ big name players,

Running backs Lance Dunbar (hamstring) and DeMarco Murray (knee) along with guard Ronald Leary (knee), wide receiver Dez Bryant (wrist and hamstring) and defensive end Jason Hatcher (neck) participated.

Missing practice for Dallas was DT Nick Hayden (back), and LB DeVonte Holloman (neck). While Hollomon didn’t participate at all, Hayden was seen on the stationary bike during the session.

Up next for the Dallas Cowboys are the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Dallas is 4-3 on the season, and are currently holding onto the top spot in the NFC East, while the Lions are also 4-3, but are in second place in the NFC North.
