A few starters miss Cowboys practice

IRVING, Texas -- The last practice before a three-day weekend for the Cowboys didn't have any changes regarding who missed practice.

Sam Hurd (hip), Dez Bryant (hip and ribs), Jason Witten (knee), Marc Colombo (knee) and Kyle Kosier (knee) missed practice for the second consecutive day.

As far as practice is concerned the Cowboys focused on punt and kick returns, Terence Newman and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah returned punts and muffed a few.

Also, the Cowboys wanted to work on their Dime defense, Red Zone offense and defense, certain run plays, defensive coverages and some work on the Tennessee Titans, the next opponent.

One funny thing at practice. Backup tackle Robert Brewster walked onto the practice field with his jersey on backwards.

Bradie James pointed out to him and he quickly changed it.
