- Second-team left tackle Alex Barron is wearing a walking boot for his sprained ankle, but Phillips hasn't ruled him out for Thursday. * Phillips said he was hopeful rookie linebacker Sean Lee (strained quadriceps) and tight end Martellus Bennett (sprained ankle) would be ready for the Oakland game. Both have been practicing but were held out as precautions. Rookie safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (shoulder rehab) also returned to practice last week but wasn't deemed ready to play against Cincinnati. * When camp in San Antonio broke last Friday, Phillips said rookie defensive end Sean Lissemore (strained groin) could return to practice this week. Safety Pat Watkins (sore knee) and guard Montrae Holland (strained hamstring) also were sidelined for several days in San Antonio. * Defensive end Marcus Spears (sprained MCL) and rookie receiver Dez Bryant (high ankle sprain) are still weeks away from returning.
