For the first time since week one of the regular season, the Dallas Cowboys' two most dangerous receivers practiced on the same day without limitations. Those two players are, of course, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin . Bryant has been bothered by a deep thigh bruise since week one, but after missing the following week's game, Bryant has played through the pain for the most part. Austin strained a hamstring in week two and has been inactive on game days since. But they'll both be ready for the New England Patriots on Sunday.
And the Cowboys will obviously need them. Considering how Austin had a hamstring injury during the preseason, it's conceivable to say that the Cowboys' passing game hasn't been fully healthy all season long. But the pieces are back in place, and they get to face the Patriots' pass defense, which has allowed an average of 327 yards per game, the most in the NFL by far. Start Tony Romo and all of your Dallas receivers -- including tight end Jason Witten -- with confidence.
