Newman out, Jenkins questionable for Sunday night

Chad Hall, Mike Jenkins AP

The Cowboys will definitely be short one starting cornerback when they take the field against the Jets on NBC Sunday night, but we’ll have to wait to find out if they will be without both starters.

Terrence Newman is listed as out on Friday’s injury report, which means that, as expected, his groin injury hasn’t healed enough for him to get on the field. The other starting Cowboys corner, Mike Jenkins, is listed as questionable after being limited in practice with the knee injury he suffered on Wednesday. He said he was “good to go” after a limited practice on Thursday so it seems likely the Cowboys will have one of their regular cornerbacks in the lineup.

Rookie tackle Tyron Smith, who hyperextended his knee at the same practice that saw Jenkins go down, is also listed as questionable. Per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Smith wasn’t cleared to do any stretching or contact work during Friday’s session which sounds like a bad omen for his chances of getting his NFL career underway on Sunday.

The Cowboys also ruled tight end Martellus Bennett out with an ankle injury. Center Phil Costa is listed as questionable with a knee injury and wide receiver Miles Austin sounds ready to play after being listed as probable thanks to a hamstring injury that’s bothered him throughout the preseason.

    Fortunately for the Boys, they’re facing Mark Sanchez.

    Scandrick got his payday, time to get out there and earn it! I hope he takes Newman’s spot I’m tired of him being hurt all the time and I think Jerry Jones is too because he said Newman “has to have things just right before he will play” which tells me that Newman won’t play hurt.

    Can you say ‘6 & 10 season’?

  6. randolph32 says: Sep 9, 2011 5:11 PM

    Who doesn’t love to see Jerry on the sidelines trying to make his face wrinkle up and look mad, forgetting that his 8 plastic surgeries don’t allow for any wiggle room….

    I played up to the semi-pro level and I know what injuries are like. I would never wish them on people, well, most people. Dallas and Green Bay are two teams that I would never feel sorry about an injury happening too. I’m sure the NFL and media cringe at the thought of a player on either Dallas or Green Bay getting injured since they are ALWAYS crowned the best team in the NFC no matter how poorly they do. These two teams can never do anything wrong so lets sit back and see how the NFL and media justify Charles Woodson’s punch yesterday and how these injuries were the result of somebody else cheating, because we all know, Dallas ONLY loses if the other team and/or refs cheat.

    I always found Jerry and Tony to be very attractive. Maybe Rex can get them set up to give me a foot massage after the game;)

    Be careful haters. They just might surprise you this year.

    Intresting…I could could probably think of at least a couple coaches since Lombardi that have actually won something.

    That is the lamest comment I have ever seen on the internet.

    It is utterly dumbfounding to me why Jerry Jones opted to keep Terrence Newman, and that is irrespective of his decision to not go after Nnamdi Asomugha. Newman is, and has always been, an average football player who is injury prone. corner. What do the Cowboys see in him???Unfathomable…

    “Be careful haters. They just might surprise you this year.”

    Every frigging year we hear this. Every frigging year it never happens. Forgive us if we’re actually surprised when it finally happens.

  19. trollaikman8 says: Sep 9, 2011 5:57 PM

    Newman making $8M a year is epic thievery.
    It’s bad when you’re even more fragile than Asante Samuel. At least he gambles and gets picks. Newman plays conservative AND gets burned AND gets hurt.

    so you’re saying that you think the Cowboys will make the playoffs? Sweet!

    Dude you are an idiot. Do you watch or listen to sports TV or Radio? The media has been dogging the cowboys for years. “can’t win a playoff game” , “team is too old” , “over rated” , ” filled with first round bust”, I don’t wish injurys on anyone but people like you, so put a blind fold on and run around the street. After that get me a glass of sone shut the hell up.

    Wait, what week of the season is this? This sounds more like a week 14 injury report. What’s with all the injuries before the season even starts?

    Some of it can probably be chalked up to reduced conditioning from the lack of an offseason program, but I’m wondering if we’re just starting down the slope of an overall decline in how long players last. There has to be some limit to what demands can be placed on the human body, but pro sports seem to keep demanding more, bigger, faster.

    It’s already tough to be a fan of running backs in today’s NFL – they seem to come and go so quickly. Imagine if that starts to happen with every position.

    Well you made it to All Pro in the DBag game. You could be the biggest loser to ever enter this site. What a clown you are.

    And Sanchez is awful, the Cowboy are lucky they’re facing one of the lower level QBs.

    At this time last year, the Cowboys were the consensus superbowl pick from the NFC. Who would have believed then that the Week 1 2011 starters could include Kevin Kowalksi, Bill Nagy, Jeremy Parnell on the O-line, and Orlando Scandrick, Alan Ball, and Bryan McCann as our starting and nickel corners? I have confidence in Scandrick as the nickel corner covering the slot, but the other two, ehh. There comes a time where every young NFL player gets his opportunity to excel, but I just wish that there weren’t this many guys getting an opportunity all at the same time.

    When I was in PopWarner I was injured. So I know what an injury is….

    Those Cowboys are everybodys favorite team and this is why year in and year out they`re picked to win the division or the confrence every year.The truth is that Cowboy fans and the media need to learn that popularity does not equal greatness……Even Sanchez can have a great time against this secondary!!!….You`re living in a dream world if you think this team is great….Its Not!!!!

    =========================

    Right. Greatness is not found in divisional championships, though the Cowboys have 21 of those. It’s not found in conference championships, though the Cowboys have 10 of those. It’s not found in playoff appearances, though the Cowboys have 30 in their 51 years of existence. Fact is the Cowboys are a good bet to win the division and conference because that’s just what they’ve historically done better than any other franchise, and in multiple decades.
    The only place you find true greatness is in winning Super Bowls though. No team is “great” if they don’t win the Super Bowl. Nobody remembers second place or third place or fourth or fifth or sixth place.

    Uhhhhh, Lombardi actually WON Super bowls, and obviously didn’t lose two consecutive AFC Championship games , so the “best coach since Lombardi” tag is moronic and inept.

    Belichick would be a more appropriate coach, and even Mike Sherman. How about you chill out on the best designation until Rex wins as many as Lombardi (which won’t happen, so sorry to burst your little girly bubble). Don’t be too pissed when Rex’s Brother’s Defense outplays the Jets, and the Cowboys win in your house. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    What? He played with busted ribs for over half the season last year, having to take injections before games. It’s a big reason why he was so terrible.

  33. stunzeed5 says: Sep 10, 2011 4:09 AM

    That sucks, we WANT Newman and Jenkins to play because they are terrible. Get well soon guys!
