The list of Cowboys who were not here

We're done with the organized team activities.

The media gets only one shot to look at the team until next week. However, a few people weren't here for a variety of reasons.

  • Wide receiver Terrell Hudgins missed because his school year hasn't finished.

  • Linebacker Stephen Hodge is recovering from microfracture surgery.

  • Defensive lineman Sean Lissemore missed Monday's session because school is still in session.

  • Tight end Scott Sicko and running back Lonyae Miller are in the same situation as Hudgins and Lissemore.

  • Linebacker Keith Brooking attended practice but is recovering from knee surgery.

  • Defensive end Marcus Spears had a personal day and will return Tuesday.

  • Nose tackle Jay Ratliffis around, however he is not working out as he recovers from surgery on both elbows.

  • Wide receiver Sam Hurd attended practice but in a limited role as he recovers from right thumb surgery.

  • Safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is here but is recovering from shoulder surgery.

  • Wide receiver Patrick Crayton told the team last week he was not showing.

  • Here's Wade Phillips on Crayton's status: "You just miss out on the individual techniques and working with your team. Those two things. It's competitive. I know he's a competitor, but I'd rather see him here. I'd rather him be here certainly, I rather have them all be here."
