    IRVING, Texas -- A busy day at Valley Ranch was highlighted by the release of No. 3 quarterback Stephen McGee, but Jason Witten (spleen), Miles Austin (hamstring) and Dez Bryant (knee) also made news by returning to the practice fields Saturday.

    The Cowboys are not required to release a practice report until Sunday so it's not known how much work Witten, Austin and Bryant received.

    Bryant, however, was wearing a sleeve on his right knee and all the players were in full pads.

    Mike Jenkins (shoulder) was supposed to practice Saturday, but during the open media portion of practice, he wasn't on the field.

    Garrett says WR Miles Austin (hamstring) practiced "most extensively" out of all the team's injured players. #nyg

    Jason Garrett says Jason Witten was out there for "a portion" of the team's practice today. #nyg

    Witten in pads, Cowboys work on strange schedule

    IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was a few minutes late to the podium Saturday, then abruptly ended his daily briefing with the media earlier than usual.

    Apologizing while making his quick departure, after noticing the time on the clock in front of him, Garrett said he had to get to practice.

    ''Guys, I hate to be rude, I feel like I've been bad today, but I've got to get to practice,'' he said.

    This was far from a regular Saturday at Valley Ranch before a game.

    Instead, it was the middle of game-week preparation for their unprecedented Wednesday night season opener at the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. All while the Cowboys also made changes to the 53-man roster and signed eight practice squad players in time for them to all be on the field.

    A hopeful sign for the Cowboys was having tight end Jason Witten on the field in pads, able to run around and catch some passes. It was his first time in pads since lacerating his spleen when he took a hard hit during the preseason opener at Oakland on Aug. 13...
