Offensive tackle Winston Justice told reporters on Thursday and said that he will go out for the warm-ups and individual periods of practice and from there see if he can do more. Justice suffered a hyperextended knee last Thursday against Houston and did not practice on Wednesday.
"I just want to try and get back as fast as I can," Justice said.
Justice said that he arrives at the NovaCare Complex at 6:30 AM for treatment. He said that he will wear a brace for the rest of the season, but it shouldn't be too much of an adjustment - per Justice - because he wore one in college.
For Justice to play Sunday in Dallas, he said that he has to "move efficiently without that much pain. If the pain's not tolerable, then you're a hindrance to your team. Right now, I'm trying to see if I can move efficiently enough."
If Justice can't play, King Dunlap will start at right tackle. But Justice is hopeful that he can play.
"In my mind, I'm telling myself I can," Justice said.
