Officially, Ezekiel Elliott is on the injury report with a shoulder injury, which occurred in the second half of the Philadelphia win, but it won't affect his availability for this week's game at Indianapolis. “I've had a lot of touches,” said Elliott, who had 40 touches vs. the Eagles. “Just trying to make sure I'm fresh for Sunday.” Sean Lee (hamstring) practiced for the first time in more than a month and Tavon Austin (groin) practiced for the first time in nearly two months on a limited basis. Both could be available Sunday against the Colts.

For the first time since re-aggravating a hamstring injury Nov. 5 against the Tennessee Titans, Sean Lee was on the practice field Wednesday. Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith took the first turns during individual drills. If Lee plays this week, it will likely be on a pitch count after missing the last five games. Wide receiver Tavon Austin was also on the field for the first time since suffering a groin injury on Oct. 14 against Jacksonville.

Ezekiel Elliott was not on the field during the open portion of practice to the media. Elliott suffered a stinger in last week's win vs. Philadelphia but he managed to return to the game. He had 40 touches against the Eagles and the Cowboys have been mindful of his workload in practice during the season.

For the first time this season, Dirk Nowitzki is listed as questionable for Wednesday's home game against the Hawks. Nowitzki, the longtime face of the Mavs' franchise, is on the verge of making his season debut after a long recovery from spring ankle surgery.

Would you rather have Amari Cooper, who has 40 catches for 642 yards and six touchdowns in six games, or the 25th overall pick in the first round? With their 8-5 record, the Cowboys are presently giving up pick No. 25 in the first round to the Oakland Raiders because of the Cooper trade.
