Jason Garrett: 'Feels good' to have healthy roster

IRVING -- For the first time since the season started the Cowboys could have a healthy secondary with Mike Jenkins, Terence Newman and Orlando Scandrickall playing at cornerback for the game at New England.

Miles Austin and Dez Bryant are also back from health issues.

So, after a bye week, the Cowboys appear as healthy as they've been.

"Well, it feels good," coach Jason Garrett said. "You guys have heard me say this before, injuries are a part of the National Football League in 32 cities across this league. We just have to understand that. We did a good job of battling through some of the injuries -- the individual players fighting through it themselves but also the backup players trying to take advantage of their opportunities. Having said all that, it's better to have the guys, your starters, back out there practicing and moving towards playing in the game on Sunday."

Monday's practice included the following players, who had been battling injuries for some time: David Buehler, Barry Church, Austin, Bryant and Scandrick.
