Safety Jeff Heath again was limited by a shoulder injury. The Cowboys first listed Heath on the injury report Saturday and listed him as questionable for the Redskins game.

He played only 21 snaps, all on special teams, after playing 178 snaps at safety the past five games.

“We’re hopeful he’ll get better and better as the week goes on,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “But he played a damn good game not being healthy on special teams. He really showed up and made an impact.”

Heath was credited with one special teams tackle against the Redskins.

The Cowboys added defensive end Greg Hardy to the practice report with a shin injury, but he was a full participant in Thursday’s practice.

Receiver Dez Bryant (foot/knee) was a full participant, and quarterback Tony Romo (left collarbone) did not practice.
