Sources: CB Terence Newman, TE Martellus Bennett Out For Week One?

Terence Looks Iffy Week One

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman and tight end Martellus Bennett more than likely won’t see action on Sunday night against the New York Jets according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Newman hasn’t practiced since he strained his groin on August 4.

The former Wildcat standout hasn’t missed a regular season start at corner since 2008.

While the Kansas State product tweeted that he should be ready to play against the Jets, club officials, however, do not share his optimism.  Newman’s original timetable of five to six weeks always left his status for the opener questionable.

Bennett, meanwhile, is nursing with a high ankle sprain and wasn’t even cleared to run until Monday. The team’s decision to keep Martin Rucker as a fourth tight end on the 53-man roster was a strong sign that Bennett wouldn’t be ready.

The Cowboys won’t rule Newman and Bennett out until later in the week. But it’s unlikely that either player will improve in the next few days to be cleared to see the field.
