Henry Melton, two other DTs miss practice

IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys' top three 3-technique defensive tackles did not practice Wednesday.

Henry Melton is nursing a sore right hamstring. The reason for the absence of Terrell McClain, who missed all of preseason and the season opener due to a high ankle sprain, was not immediately known. Davon Coleman has not practiced or played since injuring his calf lifting weights the day after the Cowboys’ Week 2 win.

Nick Hayden and Ken Bishop were the only defensive tackles available during Wednesday’s practice.

Starting linebacker Justin Durant returned to practice after missing two games with a strained groin. Linebacker Rolando McClain is still sidelined by his strained groin.
