Posted by: Mark Craig under NFC Updated: October 30, 2013 - 3:54 PM

Six players didn't practice today, including receiver Greg Jennings, who is dealing with a knee injury that's not expected to keep him out of Sunday's game at Dallas.

Others who didn't practice today were: CB Chris Cook (hip), TE Rhett Ellison (ankle), SS Jamarca Sanford (groin), nose tackle Fred Evans (knee) and FB Matt Asiata, who has a shoulder injury and also was absent because of the death of his father earlier this week.

Five other players were on the injury report but had full participation in practice. They were: LB Chad Greenway (wrist), CB A.J. Jefferson (ankle), WR Rodney Smith (hip), K Blair Walsh (left hamstring) and DT Kevin Williams (knee).

For the Cowboys, seven players did not practice today. There are: WR Miles Austin (hamstring), CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring), S J.J. Wilcox (knee), LB DeVonte Holloman (neck), S Danny McCray (hip/toe), DE DeMarcus Ware (thigh) and C Brian Waters (elbow).
