Terry Glenn’s Rehab Progressing

GlennWhile it may not have necessarily of given the Cowboys the win in New England, I doubt few on the team would deny that having Terry Glenn on the offense would have made a huge impact in their first loss of the season. That said, it appears Glenn is preparing himself to take the next step in his rehab this week. According to the official Dallas Cowboys website, dallascowboys.com, Glenn is planning to start running this week, though he doesn’t want to set a time table for his return yet.

While this is a very positive step for Glenn and his recovery, I don’t think it’s time yet to get our hopes up. Running is but one step in his rehab for recovering from his second arthroscopic surgery. Glenn doesn’t want to commit to a time table on when he would be able to return, and neither do I. The fact of the matter is that Glenn was close once before, in the off season in fact, when he returned from surgery to practice and suffered another injury that same day. Things like these can’t be rushed, but for now I’ll take comfort in knowing that he is getting closer.

Glenn is one of three players on the Dallas Cowboys that the team is hoping to get back soon after the bye week. Tank Johnson could make his debut in week 9 if not sooner and Anthony Henry isn’t expected to be out too long after suffering what trainers are calling a minor high ankle sprain. Cowboys fans should be familiar with high ankle sprains, remembering back to two years ago when Julius Jones suffered the same injury. Coach Wade Phillips said that Henry’s high ankle sprain isn’t as bad as he thought Julius Jones’ might have been.
