Injury Update: No More Preseason For Newman

As you may have heard Terence Newman has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. Basically he has severe pain in his heel when he walks or runs. Newman missed last week’s game against the Broncos and will miss the rest of preseason. Coach Phillips expects Newman to start the season opener on September 9th but the injury will likely bother Newman the rest of the season.

This is bad news, considering his backups are veterans Aaron Glenn and Anthony Henry. Newman’s shoes are not easy to fill and he is one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the league. In 2006, Newman had 63 tackles, 54 of which were unassisted.

He has been a proven leader on and off the field and would be a great loss to the Cowboys. Lets hope to see "T-New" out on the field and ready to rumble when the ‘Boys take the field September 9th against the New York Giants.

  1. I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and I feel for these professional atheletes that have it. It has slowed me down A GREAT DEAL. I admire anyone that can still play sports with this disorder. They can shoot cortizone directly into his foot before the game but when it wears off, OUCH!! It’s going to hurt after he’s been pounding on that foot for an entire football game.
    Newman is a big deal to The Cowboys. I hope that they get him taken care of. I hate the thought of not seeing him out there.
