    IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys keep receiving good news regarding most of their injured players. Wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), safety J.J. Wilcox (knee), cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring), defensive end DeMarcus Ware (thigh), and defensive tackles Jason Hatcher (neck) and Nick Hayden (ribs) practiced Wednesday. This is a positive sign for a Cowboys defense that's struggling with its health and overall play. Starting middle linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) and strong side linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring) did not practice and are not expected to play in Sunday's game at the New York Giants.

    Good news. Must beat Giants... again - Week one was clearly the highlight of the season so far IMO, partially because it seemed more significant at the time, but, it was great to get the home win off of our backs.

    Going into what I feel is the make-or-break game for the season, we can use all the good news we can get!

    We may be getting players back but we're missing the key piece (Lee). I can just feel a black hole of incompetence and confusion swirling around the entire middle of our defense without him to maintain order.

    It's insane to me that given all of the losses our divisional rivals so graciously handed us earlier this season, that we are already facing a "must win" game in week 12. But you're absolutely right.

    Statement game. I expect we come out strong then beat Oakland a few days later.

    We'll all be feeling great going into the Chicago game where, of course, we end up losing. Then we get "lucky" and catch GB with Rogers back at the helm and drop back to .500, setting up two big divisional showdowns in the final two weeks of the season.

    ...and we WIN the first one, setting up a "win and you're in, lose and go home" scenario with the Eagles in week 17...

    ...where we proceed to get crushed by a score of 42 to 10. Fortunately, our fellas will already be home, so they won't have to deal with that annoying plane ride home before hitting the golf course like the last couple of years. So, there's that.

    That might be a record for cliches in one post! :)

    And since Jerry has already found his puppet HC and has ridiculous salary cap issues to contend with, that's all they are, cliches. Because regardless of what happens, coaches won't be coaching, players won't be playing, and no one will be fighting for their jobs. They're secure. LOL.

    Over under on reinjuries in this game by quarter? I say Miles leaves late in the second quarter and is doubtful to return for the rest of the game.....

    That's it? What about Ware re-aggravating his quad pull? No wait, he'll get that darn pinched nerve thing again. Hatcher too. And let's not forget, this is right about the time that Murray breaks something. Dez too, probably get that herniated disc everyone has been waiting on. LOL.

    Missing Lee will be a void our LBers have to come together on filling. I feel a lot better about getting back much needed help in the returnees.

    Well, to be honest. QBs were racking up 400 yards on the Cowboys with Sean Lee in the middle. I think with some of the defensive players coming back, we can hope to stem the bloodletting that occurred in N.O.

    I'm more interested in Miles return and what he can bring to this stagnant offense.

    A non-contact injury?
