Anthony Spencer went through his first full week of practice since microfracture surgery.

Spencer played just one game last season and missed all of this regular season with micro fracture surgery on his knee. He's been sitting out friday practices to rest his knee thus far, but has gone through practice fully this week, which means that he could be close to returning. His return should provide a nice boost to the Cowboys' defense.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett indicated Saturday that defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence should be activated for the team's Week 9 matchup with the Cardinals.

The rookie out of Boise State has been on the shelf with a foot injury all year, but has looked good in recent practices and is officially eligible to come off injured reserve now. The Cowboys pass rush has been relatively ineffective to date, so the return of Lawrence should be a nice boost for them.

Anthony Spencer will practice on Saturday.

Spencer remains questionable as the Cowboys continue to ease him back in after microfracture surgery on his knee. The fact that he's practicing is an excellent sign that he can continue to play through the recovery.

Tony Romo fully participated in practice Friday.

Romo sat out of Thursday's practice, (the Cowboys' first of the week), as he has done every week thus far. The Cowboys have been trying to keep the veteran quarterback healthy, as he's been banged up this season with various ankle, rib, and back injuries. He'll likely continue to sit out the first practice of every week for the remainder of the season. That being said, there's little reason to worry about Romo, and he'll be fine for a juicy matchup on Monday against Washington.

Cowboys LB Bruce Carter fully participated in practice Friday after he was limited on Thursday. He's ready to play Monday vs. Washington.

Carter has missed the last three games with a quad injury and had been limited in practice all week. The full practice is definitely encouraging and he should see his regular turn of defensive snaps Monday night.

Dez Bryant (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

Bryant is in no danger of missing Monday night's game and should put up fantastic numbers against the lowly Redskins.

Bruce Carter (thigh) has returned to practice Thursday.

Carter has totaled 25 tackles for the Cowboys this season after registering 96 tackles last season. His return to practice on Thursday bodes well for his status on Monday.

Tony Romo participated in walkthroughs Thursday morning, but will not take part in practice.

With Dallas not playing until Monday, Romo's usual off-Wednesday has now been shifted to an off-Thursday. He will be more than fine for the Monday night match-up with the Redskins.

Amobi Okoye is expected to practice Thursday for the first time with the Cowboys.

Okoye will look to help bolster a defensive line of a surging Dallas Cowboys team. Okoye was a former first round draft pick by the Houston Texans in 2007.

Bruce Carter (thigh) says he will return to practice on Thursday.

Carter was hurt in late September when the Cowboys played the Saints and has been out of action ever since. The Cowboys are the surprise of the NFL given the fact that most critics said their defense was a total joke. A returning Carter will definitely beef up the Dallas defense and that could happen as soon as this Monday night against Washington.
