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.

Amobi Okoye is expected to begin practicing Thursday.

It's been almost two years since Okoye was on the field as he dealt with a rare brain condition that required him being put into a medically-induced coma. He was eligible to come off the NFI list after Week 6 and has been doing conditioning work and some light weight-work in the meantime. The Cowboys are just seeing how everything goes before establishing some sort of game plan with him.

Cowboys signed LB Troy Davis and DT Ken Bishop to the practice squad.

The Cowboys are just bulking up at positions they feel might be a problem further down the road. With guys like Rolando McClain and Bruce Carter struggling with injuries, this all makes sense.

Cowboys waive Michael Sam, according to the team’s website.

Sam hasn't been used by the Cowboys at all and while he may have a bit of potential as a part-time pass rusher, he simply doesn't fit well in the Dallas system. Someone may claim him off waivers, but any NFL impact is a long shot.

Cowboys LB Korey Toomer cleared waivers and became a free agent Monday.

Toomer will be hoping that another team is in need of his services. He was a fifth round selection in the 2012 draft.

Cowboys DT Ken Bishop cleared waivers and became a free agent Monday.

Short (6"0") and stout (300 lbs.), he is likely to find another home as the injuries mount in the 2014 season. He was a seventh round selection in this year's draft, so he will be a cheap pickup for whoever deems him worthy.

Coach Jason Garrett said Brandon Carr tweaked his hamstring Sunday, but “we don’t think it’s too, too bad.”

Carr will test things out in practice this week though he's likely to stay limited for the first few days. Should he not be able to play in Week 8, Sterling Moore will take over.

 Bruce Carter has missed the past three games with a thigh injury, but he did some running before Sunday's game against the New York Giants and expects to practice this week. 

The Cowboys would love to have Carter back on the field next Monday when they face the Redskins. He's getting close, so just monitor his practice schedule this week to see just how far off he may be.

Barry Church recorded eight tackles during the Cowboys’ victory over the Giants.

Dan Bailey was 1-for-1 on field goal attempts and converted all four of his extra point attempts in the Cowboys’ win against the Giants.

When Bailey only kicks one field goal in a game, fantasy GM's are disappointed. He is the most accurate kicker in NFL history and is the premier fantasy option at the position. Bailey will continue getting multiple opportunities per game with how efficient and effective the Cowboys' running game is operating now.
