Rookie second-round pick Dan Bazuin underwent surgery on his left knee for the second time in four months. He fought through the injury to play in three preseason games, but was never close to full strength and was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
As was the case last week, LG Ruben Brown sat out the Wednesday practice and returned to take part in the entire workout Thursday.
DE Alex Brown (right ankle), DT Tommie Harris (hamstring), C Olin Kreutz (ankle), CB Ricky Manning Jr. (back) and P Brad Maynard (groin) all had limited participation in practice. Harris and Kreutz are expected to start and the rest should be available.
For Dallas, SLB Greg Ellis (Achilles) was held out of practice for the second consecutive day. CB Terence Newman (foot) participated in part of practice.
