Kitna, Four Starters Still Missing From Practice

IRVING, Texas --Tuesday's practice report appears to be the same from Monday: WR Miles Austin (hamstring), CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring), S Gerald Sensabaugh (foot), FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) and QB Jon Kitna (back) weren't practicing during the media portion.

Not a good sign for any of those five with Thanksgiving Day vs. Miami only two days away. Tuesday marks their heaviest practice work of the week; Wednesday figures to be a light day on the eve of the game.

Austin and Jenkins always seemed more likely to return after Thanksgiving.

Wearing a walking boot, Sensabaugh said Monday he was optimistic about playing with the foot injury he suffered against Washington.

Fiammetta has been sick for a couple of weeks and feels nauseous when he exercises. Head coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys are still trying to determine the origin of his symptoms, but they don't believe it's a long-term issue.

Kitna's back has flared up again, and it's looking likely Stephen McGee will back up Tony Romo for the second straight game.
