Dallas Cowboys Practice Report

A small portion of practice was open to the media on Wednesday.

During a press conference before practice, head coach Mike McCarthy said that Zack Martin, Tyler Biadasz, and Tyron Smith would work exclusively with the rehab group today.

Both Biadasz and Martin were seen working with associate athletic trainer Britt Brown on the sidelines, but Smith was not on the field when the media was viewing practice.

McCarthy also mentioned that the team would have more situational focus in the red zone during Thursday’s practice, so nothing jumped out from today during the media’s practice availability.

Cowboys Injury Report

McCarthy said the team would take the week to know where Martin, Biadiaz, and Smith stand regarding their availability for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

Wednesday’s injury report shows:

  • Biadasz (hamstring), Martin (ankle), and Smith (knee) did not participate. 
  • Edoga (elbow) was limited.
  • Demarcus Lawrence and Ceedee Lamb did not participate due to it being a rest day for them.

Zack Martin

Martin sustained an ankle injury in Week 2’s game against the New York Jets that he has been dealing with since. He was a game-time decision for Dallas this past Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but the ultimate decision was to sit him out.

Tyler Biadasz

Last Thursday, Biadasz popped up on the injury report and underwent an MRI on his hamstring after practice to evaluate the extent of the injury.

On Friday, McCarthy had said the center was sore and that his availability for the Cardinals game would depend on his workload capacity come Saturday.

Like Martin, Biadasz was another game-time decision who was ultimately held out.

Tyron Smith

Smith was added to the injury report on Saturday with a knee injury and was not seen at the part of practice open to media.

However, he seemed more plausible to play, even dressing out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Yet, the decision was made to keep him out as well.
