Dallas Cowboys news & notes


Some quick news & notes from today

With Austin and Stanback down, the kick return unit becomes an interesting place. Wade says Mike Jenkins is going to get some time back there along with Orlando Scandrick and El Gato might possibly make an appearance. 

I guess we’re all just counting on it as a formality, but sheriff Roger Goodell has to actually reinstate Adam Jones for him to play. Final cuts are on the 30th, the Cowboys expect to know by then and expect that he'll be cleared.  


We've worked him, getting him ready for the season, and then getting him working with our first group, especially our sub-group and any sub-package that we have," [Wade] Phillips said of Jones. "He's the guy that goes in."


Tony Romo is ready to go. Freed from the burden of playing in the last preseason game, he’s ready to get this thing started.

“It just allows you to get a chance to get a little bit of a head start on the opponent,” Romo said Tuesday. “For us, that’s Cleveland. We’ve been working on them this week. The juices are flowing just because you know the first game is coming.”

Jason Witten thinks Martellus Bennett still has a lot to learn.

“He has to understand this is his job,” Witten said. “That’s the next step for him. Sometimes you don’t really realize that.”

A couple of other notes, Terence Newman participated in practice in-full today and looked good doing it, so they say. Pat McQuistan practiced with the 1's again today.
