Cowboys injury report: Hamilton hurts wrist

8/9/2012

OXNARD, Calif. -- Some good news regarding injured players as Jay Ratliff returned in full pads and Mackenzy Bernadeau worked in team drills.

*Adrian Hamilton is a new name to the injury list. He suffered a right wrist injury and underwent x-rays.

*Ratliff made a cameo appearance at practice Thursday. Ratliff is battling plantar fasciitis and that's kept him out of practices. Ratliff gets work in the walkthroughs but when his foot is not bothering him, he can practice, which was the case Thursday. Ratliff got limited snaps then worked on the side with the trainers. It was a similar approach the Cowboys took with Bernadeau.

*Bernadeau (hip and knee) got extensive work with the first-team at guard. He looked good with his power and moved well.

*Marcus Spears and Teddy Williams, who passed concussion tests, practiced without incident.

*John Phillips (ankle) did not practice but is getting close to returning.
