FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys are hoping their defense will look a bit different when it lines up this Sunday against Green Bay.That a literal statement, not a figurative one. Obviously, the Cowboys will need to play better than the 281 yards and 19 points they allowed in the second half against Los Angeles. Otherwise, their Week 5 meeting with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will be a long one.But that the initial point. When the Cowboys welcome the Packers to ATT Stadium on Sunday afternoon, there at least some optimism theyl have some reinforcements on defense – starting with their top two linebackers, Sean Lee and Anthony Hitchens.he good news is wee got a chance to have both back right now, this week,” said Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones on Tuesday. ee going to see how they do in practice. It could be early. Wee got the bye week coming up. That may be a decision to make there.”Lee was a game time decision last week and ultimately did not play in the loss to the Rams. Hitchens has been absent through the first month of the season, after he sustained a minor fracture in his knee during the final preseason game against Oakland.It might be too early to speculate on their availability for Sunday https://www.cowboysteamfansstore.com/Wyatt_Miller_Jersey-284
, but it has to be encouraging that both of them are making progress in their returns.Jaylon Smith has been solid in his first month of action after an 18-month injury rehabilitation of his own, but Jones noted that having the two veteran linebackers on the field could only help him raise his level of play.e playing outstanding for being a rookie, but still, rookies do find themselves out of position a lot. Opposing offenses know this,” Jones said. o wee got to maybe have a group out there that can give him – maybe fewer plays https://www.cowboysteamfansstore.com/Daryl_Worley_Jersey-293
. That would be the result if wee got Hitchens and if we get Lee back.”Elsewhere, the Cowboys’ secondary will bear monitoring. Chidobe Awuzie and Nolan Carroll were both inactive for Week 4 – Awuzie with a hamstring injury he suffered against Denver, and Carroll with a concussion he suffered in the same game.With those two sidelined, the Cowboys have seen some positive contributions from their rookie duo of Jourdan Lewis and Xavier Woods. Lewis has 15 tackles and an interception in three appearances since becoming one of the secondary top three corners, while Woods has posted five tackles and a pass breakup in spot duty at a variety of different positions https://www.cowboysteamfansstore.com/Deante_Burton_Jersey-272
.andidly, I like the help wee got on the way,” Jones said. ee going to get Awuzie, and youe going to see even more of No. 27, Lewis. I like what he doing. Youe going to see a lot of what No. 25 is about in the future.nd there is the obvious addition of David Irving, who hasn been with the team since the regular season began. Monday marked the end of Irving four-game suspension by the NFL, which he incurred for violating the league substance abuse policy.
