Maclin said his reaction to Sensabaugh had nothing to do with having suffered the low back strain earlier in the game.
On Fox's broadcast, Aikman said: "Jeremy Maclin saw Sensabaugh sitting there at the safety position, and he didn't want any part of him. He knew it was going to be a big time collision if he had continued to go in and make a play on that ball, and he just said, 'No, thank you.' "
Sensabaugh and Maclin - who finished with eight catches for 93 yards - collided anyway.
With Danny Watkins returning to his starting right guard spot Wednesday, King Dunlap confirmed that he returned to left tackle; Dennis Kelly, who had been subbing for Watkins, moved out to right tackle, and Demetress Bell went back to the second unit.
"That's the most natural side for me," said Dunlap, who was less effective on the right side against the Cowboys. Dunlap said he thought tackle might be easier than guard for Kelly, a fifth-round rookie from Purdue. "He played tackled all through college. It's hard for somebody, especially a rookie, having no experience at guard - I think he'll feel a little more comfortable back outside."
Kelly said: "I feel all right with it."
He said the task this week for the line, as it has been through all the injuries and changes this season, is "trying to build some rhythm with all the guys who are playing."
The newest part of the equation, veteran guard Jake Scott, who was signed Tuesday, won't be competing for a starting role right away. He wasn't in anyone's training camp this year, hasn't played since ending the 2011 season with the Titans.
"I'm in real good shape, but I still haven't played football this year," Scott, 31, said. "I wanted to be in the right situation, I wanted to be somewhere where I could come in and have a chance to play. I wanted to pick the right situation. I feel like this is it."
Scott said he wants to be able to help immediately. "I'll be ready for Sunday" if needed, he said.
Watkins, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury that hampered his lateral movement, said after practice: "It felt pretty good. There's still tweaks, but that's to be expected."
Watkins said he would "try a few more things tomorrow, so we'll see."
Constant change on an o-line isn't optimal, but left guard Evan Mathis said he likes this configuration: "Having Danny healthy, adding Jake Scott to the mix, putting some guys where they're most comfortable, I think we're making progress," Mathis said.
