The list of Cowboys who were not here
By Calvin Watkins
We're done with the organized team activities.
The media gets only one shot to look at the team until next week. However, a few people weren't here for a variety of reasons.
Wide receiver Terrell Hudgins missed because his school year hasn't finished.
Linebacker Stephen Hodge is recovering from microfracture surgery.
Defensive lineman Sean Lissemore missed Monday's session because school is still in session.
Tight end Scott Sicko and running back Lonyae Miller are in the same situation as Hudgins and Lissemore.
Linebacker Keith Brooking attended practice but is recovering from knee surgery.
Defensive end Marcus Spears had a personal day and will return Tuesday.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliffis around, however he is not working out as he recovers from surgery on both elbows.
Wide receiver Sam Hurd attended practice but in a limited role as he recovers from right thumb surgery.
Safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is here but is recovering from shoulder surgery.
Wide receiver Patrick Crayton told the team last week he was not showing.
Here's Wade Phillips on Crayton's status: "You just miss out on the individual techniques and working with your team. Those two things. It's competitive. I know he's a competitor, but I'd rather see him here. I'd rather him be here certainly, I rather have them all be here."
