Greg Ellis and Terry Glenn will not play Sunday, that much is for sure. Terence Newman and Kevin Burnett are both gametime decisions.
Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd need to step it up and show that they can cover for Terry Glenn’s absense. I believe Glenn will be missed but I also think the Cowboys other weapons are powerful and will fill the hole left by the injured wide receiver.
I hope that Newman can play, but at the same time I hope he’s ready to play. Playing with an unhealed injury can cause more damage than good. But then again they are saying he will have to play with this injury for the entire season. I think it depends on how much pain he can tolerate. With the release of veteran Aaron Glenn, Jacques Reeves will take Newman’s place.
I heard a player say that there is a difference in playing hurt and playing injured… I don’t know about that but as much as they get beat up on the field I imagine its gotta hurt even when you aren’t injured!
