Dallas designated Lawrence (foot) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Although Lawrence has been officially cleared to practice, he won't be ready to play in Thursday's game against the Raiders. However, the Cowboys are hopeful that the star defensive end will be able to return to game action in the near future, perhaps as soon as the team's Week 13 game against the Saints on Dec. 2. Before breaking his foot and requiring surgery, Lawrence appeared in one game and recorded five tackles and a forced fumble.
