T.O.'s hammy still sore

T.O. missed the Cowboys scrimmage Saturday because his hamstring is still sore, although MRI test results proved negative.

Owens absense from the last few practices is not a good sign because he and Bledsoe need to work on their timing which has been off so far this camp. Owens and the Cowboys are just being cautious so as not to risk further injury, but they hope he gets back soon.

Just how soon? Nobody seems to have the exact answer, but Owens continued to say he would return when he is healthy.

"That's just the only way I think we should do it," Owens said. "It's not really pressing right now. Believe me, I want to be out there. I don't want to be on the bike all day long. Anyone who really knows me knows that I want to be out there practicing.

"But I just don't feel like we should rush it if it's not ready. The last thing I want to do is go out there, risk further injury, then it could really be a problem."

For all those who missed the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony this afternoon, both Troy Aikman and Rayfield Wright gave extremely impressive speeches that typified how they played, although suprisingly Aikman was more emotional than anyone of the inductees.

As most of you know, I'm a huge Aikman fan and would have loved to have been there today, but the reason I always thought Troy was the best QB of all time was reflected in what his presenter, Norv Turner, said when introducing Aikman. Someone once asked Norv if he had to win one game and he could choose any QB in the history of the league to play for him that game, who would it be? Norv said Troy Aikman and when asked why, he simply said, "Because I want to win."  Thats all you need to know about Troy Kenneth Aikman, the man was the ultimate winner and isn't that why they play the games?
