Cowboys Isaiah Stanback practices

New, comments

Here’s the score on the injury front.

The following guys are not participating: Rookie OT Doug Free (knee), WR Jamaica Rector (knee), WR Terry Glenn (knee scope), S Ken Hamlin (head), CB Quincy Butler (pulled muscle), DE Jason Hatcher (hamstring) and LB Greg Ellis (heel).

That means Isaiah Stanback finally hit the field, as did Alonzo Coleman.

Read dunkman’s diary here for some of the action on Stanback as provided by the DMN blog.

Not practicing, and making it seem like he never will, comes the latest from Greg Ellis, also via the DMN blog.

The Cowboys' trainers tell Wade Phillips that Greg Ellis is day-to-day. Ellis is much more pessimistic.
"This may be it for me," Ellis said. "I may have played my last game in Arizona. I pray it's not, but that's the reality."

The Cowboys are still counting on Ellis playing in the season opener. He isn't ruling out that possibility, but he obviously isn't real confident that he'll be ready to go against the Giants.

"Right now, I've still got a lot of pain," said Ellis, who hasn't practiced since the first hour of training camp. "I'm pushing through it and working through it, but in the off-season it was pretty minimal pain."

I've pretty much tuned it out for now. Once he’s back on the field, I’ll worry about him.
