Cowboys cornerback Chidobe Awuzie practiced fully Wednesday, the first time that’s happened since Oct. 6. That has him hopeful he can play Sunday against Atlanta.

“When a dog gets hit by a car, it doesn’t want to get off the porch any more,” Awuzie said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I want to get off the porch. I don’t want to get in that mentality where I’m stuck on the porch. I want to get off the porch.

“I’m trying to get back out there and treat it like nothing ever happened, try to go full-speed, try to feel everything out and we’re definitely going to approach it smarter.”
