The Cowboys are slowly but surely on the mend, as Mike Jenkins returned to practice on Sunday, while key players all over the field fully participated, which is good news for the 'Boys.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins made his return to the practice field on Sunday, one day after the return was delayed due to a migraine. Jenkins had been out of action for the entire offseason while recovering from shoulder surgery.

While having to wait an additional day frustrated Jenkins, he felt good about his return to practice, albeit in limited action. Jenkins wasn't the only player whose participation was limited, as linebackers Dan Connor (hip) and Kyle Wilber (thumb), wide receiver Andre Holmes (knee) and tight end Jason Witten (abdomen) were under close watch.

Safeties Matt Johnson (hamstring) and Danny McCray (neck) were held out of Sunday's practice entirely, as was defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle). However, a host of players, including wide receivers Miles Austin (hamstring) and Dez Bryant (knee), running backs DeMarco Murray (wrist) and Phillip Tanner (hand), center Phil Costa (back) and defensive tackle DeMarcus Ware (hamstring) were full participants.
