Miles Austin returns to practice

IRVING -- During the open portion of practice to the media, wide receiver Miles Austin was catching passes.

Austin has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and is expected to return for the New England game on Sunday.

Quarterback Tony Romo (ribs), cornerback Orlando Scandrick (ankle), wide receiver Dez Bryant (thigh), safety Barry Church (shoulder) and kicker David Buehler (groin) attended practice.

Fullback Tony Fiammetta (hamstring), Jason Hatcher (calf), Danny McCray (ankle) and Derrick Dockery (knee and leg) did not attend practice.

The Cowboys don't have to issue a injury report today. However, one thing of note, the Cowboys have added two small scoreboards at each end zone.
