Cowboys expect Terence Newman to play

Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman is listed as questionable after sitting out practice this week with a rib injury suffered Monday night against the Giants, which could be a significant problem on a Dallas roster that has just three cornerbacks.

But there’s good news coming out of Dallas, as Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that a team source says Newman is expected to play Sunday against the Jaguars.

Newman, who had to get a painkilling injection to finish the game against the Giants, told coach Wade Phillips on Friday that he’s feeling better.

Newman has started all six games for the Cowboys this season.
