    ** Linebacker Leon Williams did not practice because of cauliflower ear. He had to have the blood drained from his ear but he's not expected to miss much time at all. Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree missed his second straight practice with a hamstring injury but he should return to practice on Thursday.

    ** Cornerback Orlando Scandrick had an interception on an out route to Terrell Hudgins. He made a clean break and catch on the ball, which showed he is gaining confidence in his surgically repaired left finger.

    ** Tony Romo had just three incomplete passes during the practice. He threw behind Jason Witten down the middle, had a spike to stop the clock, and missed Patrick Crayton in the slot in a two-minute drill. Another throw to Roy Williams that fell to the ground would have been negated by a pass interference penalty on Teddy Williams.

    **Patrick Crayton continues to light it up from the slot. He caught a back shoulder from Romo just off Jamar Wall's ear. Williams ended the first-team's two-minute offense with a great grab of a Romo throw, while dragging his toes before going out of bounds.

    ** Tight end Martellus Bennett made a nice adjustment on a floater from Jon Kitna toward the sideline, adjusting his body to make the grab over McCray.

    We're going nuts with the back-shoulder stuff this season. Should be fun to watch.

    The Aint's got to a superbowl with that strategy, IMO.

    Who was the Stealer CB--was it Ike Taylor--who jumped that back-shoulder fade on us back in '08? That was a thing of beauty. It's an unbelievably difficult play to defend when it's thrown right. I'm pretty comfortable with Romo's ability to make the pass.

    You can say that again!
