Glenn Taking Reps; Optimism for his Return Grows

Terry Glenn hasn’t been seen on the practice field since the off season. Not since injuring his knee a second time and having to undergo microscopic surgery. Good news for Cowboys fans though, he is now taking reps with the practice squad QB Richard Bartell, and could rejoin the rest of the team in practice as early as this week.

Jerry Jones is still saying that his return is not likely for this Sunday’s match up against the Eagles, as he is only just now starting to take reps, and would be in no means in game shape, but he is not ruling Glenn out in the Thursday night match up against the Carolina Panthers.

The Dallas Cowboys website www.dallascowboys.com has this quote from Jerry Jones on Glenn’s recovery and his potential return:

“He’s working his tail off and they’re doing a good job on him,” Jones said of Glenn’s diligent rehab with Cowboys assistant trainer Britt Brown and the rest of the Cowboys’ training staff. “No one knows, but from where we are right now relative to what we’ve got planned for him this week and next week, I’m positive.”

Glenn had two options after re-injuring his knee; he could either have season ending microfracture surgery or have a minor microscopic surgery and have a greater chance to play this season. Glenn chose the latter realizing he wouldn’t have many more opportunities to play in the future. If he can come back for even just the playoffs, his decision could be deemed a successful move.
