Kevin Burnett MRI OK, may still need a scope


Kevin Burnett had an MRI and apparently has no major damage in his knee. But there is a possibility he will have to have it scoped to remove loose cartilage.

If he does [have it scoped], obviously Burnett will not be available for Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos at Invesco Field at Mile High, but likely could recover in time for the Sept. 7 season opener at Cleveland.

 We’ll know in a couple of days. My guess is he won’t be playing much in the Broncos game, scope or not. Captain Caveman could see a lot of time. Terence Newman is still two weeks away and Anthony Spencer is day-to-day.

So it turns out the Adam Jones/Brandon Marshall word skirmish is much ado about nothing, since they are boys and hang out together and call each other and blah, blah, blah. 

Marshall saw the comments between practices and responded by wearing a sign across the back of his jersey in the second session that read: "21 is No Champ."

Translation: Jones, who wears jersey No. 21, is no (Broncos) cornerback Champ Bailey.

"I’ll have something better for him tomorrow," Marshall said.

Jones knows it.

"I saw what he had on his shoulder pads. It was all in fun," said a smiling Jones, as he climbed inside the team bus.

"That’s my boy. I’m sure he is going to call me tonight or I’m going to call him. I like competing. That’s what this is about."

Jerry Jones comments:

During the afternoon practice, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones raved about second-round pick Martellus Bennett, particularly pointing out his blocking. On the next two plays, Bennett sealed off the left side with a clearing block on a defensive end and then caught a pass over the middle for a 15-yard gain in team drills.

Jerry must have seen a preview of Hard Knocks and decided to single-handedly build Bennett’s confidence up.

Mickey Spags gives us clueless fans the facts, as only Mickey can see them, again. 

Anthony Henry gets some JJT love.
