    Cowboys ready to work Fitzgerald
    By Jon Machota

    IRVING -- For the third time this season, the Dallas Cowboys' secondary will deal with one of the top receivers in the game.

    Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald, who is averaging a career-best 17.4 yards per catch, should plan on getting a healthy dose of double-teams from Dallas defenders on Sunday.

    However, the problem is, even with two defensive backs shadowing him, the 6-3, 218-pounder will likely still find a way to make plays.

    "It's just amazing to see how he's able to get open in double-coverage," Cowboys starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh said. "That's one of the big things, you always have a corner and a safety on him and he's still finding a way to get open and catch the ball."

    Despite not having the benefit of very good quarterback play since Kurt Warner retired after the 2009 season, Fitzgerald has found a way to continue to put up impressive numbers. The 28-year-old has 71 career touchdown grabs and is 112 yards away from having his sixth 1,000-yard season.

    Fortunately for Sensabaugh and his teammates, they've defended some elite receivers already this season. Detroit's Calvin Johnson is arguably the top wide receiver in the game and Miami's Brandon Marshall isn't too far behind...

    I'm sure they'll be ready... I'm glad Jenkins is going to be back.
