Lawrence (foot) didn't practice Tuesday, though Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said the defensive end could soon be designated for return from injured reserve, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Since Lawrence has yet to resume practicing since undergoing surgery Sept. 16 to address a fractured foot, he's safe to rule out for the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Raiders. On a more positive note, McCarthy's comments suggested Lawrence might be ready to resume practicing at some point next week. Whenever Lawrence is designated for return from IR, the Cowboys will have 21 days to evaluate him for a spot on the 53-man roster.
