The Dallas Cowboys are set up for a short week of practice as they come off of Sunday’s win over the division rival New York Giants and prepare for their Thanksgiving match up for the Oakland Raiders. The good news for Dallas is that they will have their top receivers suited up for practice.
Both Dez Bryant and Miles Austin who have been dinged up at times this season are practicing in full this week, so they will be able to go on Thursday and attempt to take advantage of a weak Raiders secondary.
Austin returned to the line up on Sunday and played more than fifty percent of the snaps, so he could see an even bigger role as the team kicks off Week 13.
Dallas plays in the Thanksgiving Day game every year, so they are used to short weeks and preparing with just a few days before their annual Turkey Day meeting. While the change of schedule could affect some players, it won’t be an issue for the Cowboys.
