Adam Jones will start for Terence Newman

New, comments

Yup, I was away from the computer almost the entire day and didn’t get to post anything or even read Cowboys news. I’m a slacker. Anyway, here’s the news that Wade hinted at in the press conference yesterday.

With cornerback Terence Newman hobbled with a groin injury, Adam Jones will start Sunday's regular-season opener at Cleveland.

Newman, listed as questionable on the injury report, could play on some passing downs Sunday. If he can't play, the cornerback would miss the start of a season for the second consecutive year.

Wow, it’s gone from maybe not starting to maybe not playing. Orlando Scandrick will be the slot guy in the dime, with Mike Jenkins working the outside corner in the formation for Anthony Henry. Thank goodness Adam Jones is here this year. C’mon T-New, we need you to get healthy.

On Monday, we could be signing a new QB. It could be Brooks Bollinger or it could be Chris Simms. Here’s Jerry’s reasoning on why they’re going to do it, if they actually do.

"We ideally would like to have a veteran who has a chance to move in for Brad Johnson at some point in the future, the future (meaning) not necessarily this year" Jones said on The Ticket. "There may be the chance to pick up the veteran we like."

 

Mike Jefferson might be on the roster come gameday.

 

The Cowboys were contemplating moving wide receiver Mike Jefferson to the 53-man roster to give them a fourth wide receiver for the game. If they did that, likely on Saturday, the Cowboys seemingly would release Marten or possibly Alan Ball, who also could be inactive for the game.

Jefferson made the trip to Cleveland, Amendola didn’t.

Zach Thomas is ready for another season.
