Bennett and Colombo have been cleared to resume practicing


Cowboys TE Martellus Bennett (concussion) and RT Marc Colombo (leg, ankle) have been cleared to resume practicing.

Colombo's return will improve Dallas' strong-side blocking, while getting Bennett back will give OCB Jason Garrett more options. It's worth noting, however, that rookie John Phillips played well in Bennett's place against the Saints, catching three balls for 40 yards. Bennett won't make a fantasy impact.
