Amobi Okoye expected to practice Thursday

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Amobi Okoye is expected to practice for the first time on Thursday, his attorney, Darin Morgan, told ESPN's Adam Caplan. Okoye is on the reserve/non-football injury list as he continues to come back from anti-NMDA encephalitis, a brain condition that causes memory issues and seizures and had Okoye in a coma for three months last year. Okoye, 27, was cleared for contact at the end of training camp but the Cowboys kept him on the NFI list so he could continue to rehab.

Amobi Okoye decision coming as soon as Monday

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Amobi Okoye no longer wonders if he will play football. To him, it's a question of when. It's a question for the Cowboys, too. Okoye is eligible to come off the non-football injury list as he comes back from a brain disorder that left him in a coma for parts of 2012 and out of football. He was cleared in August for full football activities, but the Cowboys chose to put him on reserve/NFI, which keeps him out of the first six games of the season.
