After sitting out of Wednesday's practice, Ezekiel Elliott was a full participant Thursday, as expected. He was coming off 40 touches in the win against Philadelphia and the Cowboys want to be mindful of his work in practice to keep him fresh for game day. “He wants those touches. We gave him 40 and he will come to me and said I could have checked it down to him on this play or that play,” Dak Prescott said. “He wants 50 touches. He wants the ball … He wants the touches out of the backfield and wants to help the team win in any way he can. It's Ezekiel Elliott. He is doing what he does best and it's exciting to see. We love having him on the team.”

Officially, Ezekiel Elliott is on the injury report with a shoulder injury, which occurred in the second half of the Philadelphia win, but it won't affect his availability for this week's game at Indianapolis. “I've had a lot of touches,” said Elliott, who had 40 touches vs. the Eagles. “Just trying to make sure I'm fresh for Sunday.” Sean Lee (hamstring) practiced for the first time in more than a month and Tavon Austin (groin) practiced for the first time in nearly two months on a limited basis. Both could be available Sunday against the Colts.

For the first time since re-aggravating a hamstring injury Nov. 5 against the Tennessee Titans, Sean Lee was on the practice field Wednesday. Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith took the first turns during individual drills. If Lee plays this week, it will likely be on a pitch count after missing the last five games. Wide receiver Tavon Austin was also on the field for the first time since suffering a groin injury on Oct. 14 against Jacksonville.

Ezekiel Elliott was not on the field during the open portion of practice to the media. Elliott suffered a stinger in last week's win vs. Philadelphia but he managed to return to the game. He had 40 touches against the Eagles and the Cowboys have been mindful of his workload in practice during the season.

Would you rather have Amari Cooper, who has 40 catches for 642 yards and six touchdowns in six games, or the 25th overall pick in the first round? With their 8-5 record, the Cowboys are presently giving up pick No. 25 in the first round to the Oakland Raiders because of the Cooper trade.

When the Cowboy get back to practice Wednesday, linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) and wide receiver Tavon Austin (groin) are expected to take part at least in a limited fashion, according to coach Jason Garrett. Lee has missed the last five games because of the injury and Austin has not placed since Oct. 14 against Jacksonville. Both players had been rehabbing off to the side during practice in recent weeks.

Taco Charlton, the Cowboys' first-round pick in 2017, was a healthy scratch Sunday against Philadelphia. He missed three games with a shoulder injury and played just four snaps Nov. 29 against New Orleans. Jason Garrett said Charlton has to practice better. “We want to make it competitive. We want to make sure guys earn their opportunity and some of the other guys have done a good job in his absence,” Garrett said. “So we'll see how he practices this week if he gets an opportunity to play in the game.”

Zack Martin aggravated the sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win against Philadelphia and should be limited in practice during the week. He has not missed a start in his career but if he can't play against Indianapolis, Connor Williams will start at right guard. It was the third time this season, Martin hurt the knee in a game this season. “He's as tough as they come so whatever he can do to play as quickly a she can, he's going to do,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We'll see how he responds.”
