Now that the Dal­las Cow­boys have taken care of busi­ness in the Hall of Fame game, they’re go­ing to hang around for a cou­ple of days.

Why not? The boss is about to get a gold jacket.

With no stars and few starters on the field Thurs­day night, the Cow­boys edged the Ari­zona Car­di­nals 20-18. The idea, Cow­boys coach Ja­son Gar­rett said, was to get the young play­ers lots of ac­tion, win the game and then get ready for owner Jerry Jones’ in­duc­tion Satur­day night.

So the team took Fri­day off, will prac­tice in Cleve­land on Satur­day and then will tour the hall be­fore the evening cer­e­monies.

Rico Gath­ers, catch­ing a 26-yard TD pass Thurs­day against Ari­zona, also had a div­ing re­cep­tion in the Cow­boys’ win.
