Practice Update: Several Returnees; Moore Still Missing


IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys have taken the field for their first practice since the Baltimore game, with several developments on the roster.

The team practices Tuesday morning at Valley Ranch.

Chief among those is the participation of all three of the team's top cornerbacks for the first time during training camp. Brandon Carr was in pads and on hand after sitting out a week, as Cowboys coach Jason Garrett predicted Monday. Morris Claiborne also participated in the early going of practice – the only portion that is open to the media.

While Carr, Claiborne and Orlando Scandrick were all available at practice, Sterling Moore was once again absent after missing several days last week and the Ravens game. Garrett has described Moore's injury as a groin problem, and he said his absence is more related to caution than any type of setback – though the corner was not even present on the practice fields.

DeVonte Holloman was also absent from the morning practice, which is to be expected after Garrett said the Cowboys are still evaluating his neck injury from Saturday night. [embedded_ad]

Two other in-game injuries were practicing with the full team, however. Gavin Escobar and Anthony Hitchens both suffered shoulder injuries in the loss to the Ravens, but they both returned to practice Tuesday morning. Ahmad Dixon, who was benched for the game after being late to team walkthrough, was also practicing Tuesday.

Darrion Weems and Terrell McClain once again missed practice with a shoulder injury and an ankle sprain, respectively. Henry Melton and Amobi Okoye worked underwent onfield rehab away from practice.
