Dallas Cowboys news & notes

It's Redskins week. If you want to catch up on all things Redskins, visit our good friend Skin Patrol's blog, Hogs Haven

On the injury front, we know that Roy Williams, Kyle Kosier and Deon Anderson are out for this weekend's game. But, we might be getting back Anthony Spencer and Sam Hurd.. We could really use Spencer in the game, DeMarcus Ware and Greg Ellis basically had to play every defensive down last week, they could use a break.

With Kosier out, Cory Procter is expected to get the start, but Montrae Holland might be pushing for a little playing time.

...veteran Montrae Holland, acquired in a trade with Denver before the season, got some first-team reps in practice Wednesday and could also be active against the Redskins.

Tony Romo knows he's got to cut down on the redzone mistakes

"You just look at it and learn from it," Romo said. "I'm no different from anybody. Look at what you're doing right, look at what you're doing wrong and try not to do it again."

I was raving about Martellus Bennett's blocking in my film review, there's more about it here. Planet Tellus is a weird world, even he admits as much.

Everybody's raving about T.O. and the hustle he showed in the game last week. I even heard Ed Werder do a story on it for SportsCenter which is a sure sign of the Apocalypse. T.O. says it's nothing new.

"I don't do it for show. I do it because that's part of my job. I've always been labeled as a good blocker," he said Tuesday, while signing copies of his new book, T.O's Finding Fitness, in Southlake. "This isn't the first time I've kind of escorted some guys to the end zone.

"... I want people to say that Terrell was one of the greatest athletes to ever put on the Dallas Cowboys uniform. I think I'm on my way, and I think I'm doing those necessary things."

I meant to talk about this a week ago when I first heard it but it slipped my mind. Georgia Tech has a fierce defensive end named Michael Johnson who reminds a lot of people of Javon Kearse (when he was good). Anyway, Johnson has had problems with cramping in games because of dehydration. He missed a lot of the first game of the season with cramps. Well, he's got that fixed now, courtesy of a couple of Cowboys, former teammate Tashard Choice and Emmitt Smith. The cure? No, not pickle juice, but Pedialyte, a drink to combat dehydration in small children. 

"I trust Tashard so I listen to people when they give me advice, especially someone like that," Johnson said Tuesday. "And he got it from Emmitt. You can't question his credibility. It's like top-notch."
