Glenn To Miss At Least Two Weeks, Other Injuries

tglenncamp.jpgWR Terry Glenn’s right knee will have to be rescoped to remove a cyst located behind his kneecap.  This is now the report out of camp after he left practice on Sunday after experiencing pain in the knee.  He will most likely miss the first preseason game against Indianapolis but will most definitely return by the start of the season.    Owner and GM Jerry Jones described it as a “light scope” necessary to determine if the problem is indeed the cyst behind his kneecap.  It was decided to have the procedure done now as opposed to waiting to see if it could be treated by other means to ensure Glenn’s return by the start of the regular season.

In the meantime, the younger WR’s consisting of Sam Hurd and Patrick Crayton got to fill-in on the first team offense and get some valuable experience.  Draft pick Isaiah Stanbach is still recovering from an off-season injury to his foot and isn’t expected to be physically able to play for several weeks.

Also of note, WR Terrell Owens sat out the last two practices with a sore hamstring and “tired legs”.  Neither the injury to Glenn nor Owens’ hamstring seemed of any major concern to Coach Phillips who minimized both instances and believes both are veteran players familiar enough with the offense to step back in and play with no drop off at all.
