10/20/15 - LB Rolando McClain and DE Greg Hardy had strong performances against the New England Patriots before the bye after missing the first four games of the season due to NFL suspensions. Although they would have preferred to keep it rolling, they have been helped by the bye week to get more practice time with their teammates and more time to get back in football shape to make them even better for the Giants game.
"I think any time you're coming back from not playing for a little while you want to continue to get yourself acclimated, and those guys work hard," head coach Jason Garrett said. "They were prepared last week to play that game. But now it gives them a chance to have a good couple of practice days before they get ready for the next week of preparation for the Giants. I thought they handled their work well in the game and they were back out there (Wednesday). Both of those guys had good practices."
McClain played in 52 of 59 snaps against the Patriots and had nine tackles and one sack. Hardy played in 41 plays and had two sacks and five quarterback pressures.
