Opening Statement:

“From a transaction standpoint, we signed wide receiver Montez Billings to the practice squad. Jermey Parnell was signed to the Cowboys’ active roster so that’s a one for one switch there. On the injury front, Stanley Arnoux (ankle) was full; Drew Brees (knee) was full; Jimmy Graham (ankle) was full; Chris Ivory (knee) was full; Jon Stinchcomb (shoulder) was full; Zach Strief (knee) was full; Leigh Torrence (toe) was full; Anthony Waters (hamstring) was full; Jimmy Wilkerson (knee) was full; Marques Colston (rib) was full; Jeff Charleston (neck) was full; Usama Young (quad) was full; Scott Shanle (hamstring) was limited; Will Smith (groin) was limited; Roman Harper (hamstring) was limited; Randall Gay (head) did not practice; Reggie Bush (fibula) did not practice; Tracy Porter (knee) did not practice; Pierre Thomas (ankle) did not practice.”

Is Pierre Thomas’ ankle progressing?

“He’s progressing. Each morning we get in and we see where he’s at and we just take it day-to-day with the treatment and his rehab. We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow and kind of approach it that way. That’s the only way that you can.”

What’s typical for an ankle sprain that isn't a high ankle sprain?

“That’s a great question because this is not high; it’s down in the lower portion. A lot of it is symptomatic; in other words, as the symptoms dissipate then you can increase land-based activities. So the swelling has significantly gone away and now it’s just getting it strong enough to where at his position he feels like he can cut and plant off of it.”

So there was no ligament damage or anything like that?

“No. It’s what I said in the beginning.”
