Romo, McClain return to practice
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and linebacker Rolando McClain returned to practice on Thursday, but cornerback B.W. Webb was missing.
Romo went through some individual drills, working on footwork and ball security for one of the first times this summer. He has followed a conservative training camp practice routine this summer but will play Saturday against the Miami Dolphins.
McClain sat out Wednesday after he was unable to finish Tuesday’s practice because of cramping. Rookie Anthony Hitchens worked with the first time at middle linebacker during the portion of practice open to the media, with Justin Durant and Bruce Carter as the outside linebackers. DeVonte Holloman has not practiced this week since suffering a neck injury and is awaiting the results of a second opinion.
Sterling Moore returned to practice for the first time in a week after aggravating a groin injury. Webb has a sore hip flexor that is keeping him out of practice. Rookie Tyler Patmon will see time in practice as a slot corner.
Safety Johnny Thomas was also missing from practice.
