ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cowboys starting inside linebacker Keith Brooking hasn't practiced since the second day of training camp because of a pulled hamstring.

Brooking is progressing in his rehab work and hopes to return for the third preseason game Aug. 25 at Minnesota. Brooking said his goal is to practice next Tuesday, and if he can't participate in the Minnesota game, the preseason finale at Miami is a possibility.

"A little tight," Brooking said of how his leg is. "It's getting better."
