Tony Fiammetta is watching practice. That has not been the case since his mystery illness hit.
Don't know how to post the link, but on the Cowboys website there was an Ellis tweet that stated that Jenkins was at this mornings walkthrough, Austin was not, and that Fiametta was at practice seen talking with the trainer. That was the first Fiametta sighting in a couple of weeks. One can hope for miracles, right!? Also sounded like Austin would not partipate this week...didn't understand if they meant participate in practice, the game, or both. My guess is that if he doesn't practice, he won't play. I hope it's more of just being overly cautious and making sure he's 100% by the NYG game than him not ready for action.
Yeah I just saw that on twitter. I hope this is some type of progress for Fiammetta, glad to see Jenkins back. Austin should give it another couple of weeks.
Tony fiammetta was on stationary bike in weight room and he's a spectator at practice.

Tony Fiammetta is at practice, talking with head athletic trainer Jim Mauer. First time we've seen him in a couple weeks.

Looks like Mike Jenkins is going to participate in the Monday walkthrough. Extra practice for this week.
Mods, delete if you want...just saw the same info posted on the News Zone. Musty have been posted while I was typing this one.
As someone who never visits the News Zone, I feel I'm probably missing a good bit of info like this.
Cowboys Return To Practice With Jenkins
Posted by nickeatman at 11/28/2011 11:19 AM CST on dallascowboys.com
The Cowboys returned to the practice field after a three-day break following last Thursday’s Thanksgiving win.
Among those practicing included cornerback Mike Jenkins, who has four straight games with a hamstring injury he sustained Oct. 30 in Philadelphia. Jenkins is expected to play this week in Arizona and resume his starting duties at right cornerback.
There was some good news on the injury front as fullback Tony Fiammetta made an appearance on the practice fields wearing a sweatsuit and a knit cap. Fiammetta hasn't played the last two games with an undisclosed illness.
Fiammetta was in the Cowboys weight room riding a stationary bike, which is a good sign toward his recovery. Fiammetta was getting sick when he was working out and Monday's events could lead to a return in the coming weeks.
Also missing the session were Gerald Sensabaugh (foot), Jon Kitna (back) and Josh Brent (knee).
A mere appearance doesn't excite me, but if he was actually on the bike that could be a good sign. Still not getting my hopes up yet, though.
Lots of pretty good info is usually there, Theo. I like it because I don't have to go to 50 websites to get news articles, most of the available news is posted on that one site.
Thank you Lord!!
Dang, I wish Fiametta would get over his illness or whatever the heck is wrong with him. I am fearful that he is prone to concussions and it is taking longer and longer to recover from them. I think he was a big part of our success on run.
Punter mat Mcbriar said pain in foot is gone but there is still discomfort. He might hold some this week for Dan Bailey in practice
Mat McBriar noted that Arizona's Patrick Peterson looked a little tired after his 4th TD return this season, suggested he take a week off.
If McBriar doesn't get a little more air on his punts, Peterson could win the game by himself.
At this point I don't want Austin playing unless he has practiced all week. Robinson and Romo have a good thing going and while it's obvious Miles will take back his role on the team when healed I don't think he should until he is 100%.
Just so long as he is completely recovered. One more hamstring injury will earn him a new nickname.
Injury prone? Glass?
We usually reserve those for guys that get hurt once.
