DeMarcus Ware, Mo Claiborne rehab

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys returned to the practice field Monday, but defensive end DeMarcus Ware and cornerback Morris Claiborne continued to rehab from quadriceps and hamstring injuries, respectively.

The Cowboys hope both players will be available Sunday against the New York Giants. The Cowboys are going through a short workout and will return to regular practice work on Wednesday. Claiborne has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury, and on Nov. 10 against New Orleans Ware aggravated the quadriceps strain that knocked him out of three games.

As expected, linebackers Sean Lee and Justin Durant are not practicing because of hamstring injuries. They are looking at a possible Dec. 9 return against the Chicago Bears.

Wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (stinger) are taking part in their second straight practice. Rookie safety J.J. Wilcox also returned to practice action for the first time since injuring his knee Oct. 20 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

With the injuries to Lee and Durant, the Cowboys signed linebacker Taylor Reed to the practice squad and released defensive end Hall Davis. Reed was among the Cowboys’ final cuts coming out of training camp.
