  • Bills' Cedric Thornton: Latches on with Buffalo

    Thornton signed a contract with the Bills on Tuesday.

    The 29-year-old was on the open market for only a few days after the Cowboys cut ties with him when a hamstring injury sidelined him for much of training camp. Buffalo's decision to bring Thornton aboard suggests he's reasonably healthy now, but it's not expected that he'll see many snaps this season behind the dominant defensive tackle tandem of Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams.

  • Cowboys' Cedric Thornton: Returns to practice

    Thornton (hamstring) made his return to Cowboys' practice Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official website reports.

    Thornton has been bothered by a hamstring injury for several weeks but is seemingly feeling better. It's unlikely the Cowboys would allow the 29-year-old to participate in practice unless they were comfortable with his health. However, with all the time he has missed during training camp, his starting role could potentially be in jeopardy.

  • Cowboys' Cedric Thornton: Resumes practice Monday

    Thornton (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Monday, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Thornton has been dealing with a hamstring injury the past couple of weeks, but it sounds as though he's finally making some progress in his recovery. The 29-year-old should increase his activity in the days to come, but because of all the time he's missed in the preseason, he may no longer be guaranteed a starting role heading into Week 1.
