Notebook: Williams ready for Atlanta

Coming off a bye week, the Dallas Cowboys appear to be getting healthy on a number of fronts.

Veteran wide receiver Roy Williams practiced on Monday and declared himself ready for the Falcons game this Sunday afternoon at 4:15.

It was Williams' first practice since injuring his ribs against Denver on Oct. 4.

The Cowboys also announced Monday Miles Austin has replaced Patrick Crayton as the starter opposite Roy Williams. Crayton will be the third receiver.

Austin is coming off a career game in the overtime win over Kansas City, recording 10 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns.

* DE Igor Olshansky was fined $7,500 for an illegal block against the Chiefs, raising the Cowboys' fine total for the season to $60,000.

* SS Gerald Sensabaugh wants to play Sunday against the Falcons after missing the Chiefs game before the bye with a fractured thumb. The Cowboys held him out of practice Monday to give his thumb more time to heal. Sensabaugh will have the thumb X-rayed again this week. He hopes to practice by the end of the week and if he plays, he will wear a cast. The Cowboys might still hold him out another week.

* RB Felix Jones practiced Monday and is ready to play against the Falcons on Sunday. It was Jones' first practice since spraining his knee vs. Carolina on Sept. 28.
