    IRVING — Cowboys rookie safety Matt Johnson, who is on the reserve/injured returnable list, was eligible to practice Friday for the first time but said he only worked on the side.

    Johnson, who hasn’t played this season because he’s battled hamstring injuries all year, said he plans to return to practice next week if the Cowboys win Sunday night and advance to the playoffs.

    “I’ve felt great for three or four weeks now,” Johnson said.

    Johnson said he feels like he’s in better shape, stronger and “more explosive” than when he arrived after being drafted out of Eastern Washington.

    One of the things I really hoped for was to see both Church and M Johnson play more snaps this season.

    If either guy works out, it would save us at the minimum a high draft pick next year.

    Church did work out.
    It'll now depend on his recovery if we can count on him in 2013.

    I meant to say I was hoping to see a larger sample size from Church.

    I guess it's a good sign the staff extended him post-injury. They must feel very positive about him (and his injury).

    I think he re-injures his hamstring cheering for his team mates on Sunday night.

    We need to get him as much work as possible, and we need to look at him for draft purposes, what do we have with this guy besides injuries?

    Too soon to say with Church. WAY too soon. They extended him but he could still end up being subpar. We don't know.

    Plus that injury he's coming back from is no joke.

    Don't bet on it. Plenty of opportunity to pull a hammy getting out to the field. Someone forgets to put a caution floor wet sign out and well we may not see him next year either.
