GLENN OUT FOR AT LEAST OPENER, CRAYTON TO START

pcrayton1game.jpgTerry Glenn reinjured his recently repaired right knee Wednesday during practice and the swelling was enough to sideline him from Thursday’s workout.  Sources say the injury isn’t related to the surgery he just had to remove a cyst from behind the knee, but is enough to keep him out of the lineup for at least one game.

This leaves WR Patrick Crayton to at least be the starter on Sunday, which will greatly impede upon the deep threat of the Cowboys.  Owens and Glenn has been one of the best receiver tandems in the NFL for the last two years.  Crayton is a good receiver, but not quite the deep threat Glenn has been, going over 1,000 yards in receptions for the last two seasons with 13 touchdowns. 

“We’re preparing for a game, and we’ve got to go forward with that,” Phillips said of the Glenn situation. “I hope all the guys play, but I have to be realistic. If they’re not going to play, we’ve got other guys.”

On the better side of the injury status, it appears Terrence Newman has been elevated to a “gametime decision” for Sunday.  Thursday, Newman did some rehab and worked on his backpedaling and cutting.

“I want to see him go full speed, but I guess you’ve got an hour and 30 minutes before the game,” Phillips said. “If he can go, he can play, but we’ll have to see.”

Newman is trying to recover from a torn planter fascia in his foot which occurred during preseason.
