DC.COM Blog: Mike Hamlin Ready For Return

The Cowboys are about to get deeper at safety. Rookie Mike Hamlin says he's ready to return after missing the first five games with a broken arm.

Hamlin said he expects to practice Wednesday, but head coach Wade Phillips indicated he will hold out all players this week who have been injured. Either way, Hamlin should be available Oct. 25 against Atlanta.

The fifth-round pick would provide insurance at safety with starter Gerald Sensabaugh recovering from thumb surgery. His immediate focus probably is special teams, and the Cowboys were counting on him as a core guy before he got injured. He'll wear a cast for protection.
