    We've neglected our duties here and we apologize. Here's a recap of the first month of the season:

    *When the Cowboys resume practice Monday it might be the first time the team has a healthy 53-man roster. The biggest loss for the Cowboys was receiver Miles Austin. He missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and he's expected to return for the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon. With Austin starting it will mark the first time since the season opener that he will join Dez Bryant in the starting lineup. This will be a boost to the Cowboys offense that clearly misses Austin. Despite missing the two games, Austin is third on the team with 11 first downs earned behind Jason Witten (17) and Felix Jones (12). There was a thought Bryant would emerge as a bigger offensive threat, but he hasn't. Zero catches in the second half of the loss to the Detroit Lions last week was proof of that. And Bryant is still battling through a thigh contusion. Adding Austin could clear the way for Bryant to make more plays. He is getting some more attention from defenses.
