Big Day At Valley Ranch

A lot happening with the Cowboys today.

Wide receiver Terrell Owens today said he re-aggravated his left hamstring injury when he returned to practice last week. It could mean Owens will miss his third straight preseason game. Dallas hosts San Francisco on Saturday. Owens first felt a twinge in his hamstring August 2nd. An MRI done three days later was clear. Owens says another MRI this week was also negative. When asked if he could play if this was the regular season,
Owens said, quote: "I doubt it, not the way I need to play."

Also today, Bill Parcells said backup QB Drew Henson won't be on the Cowboys roster this season. Henson was considered the quarterback of the future when he signed three years ago. Coach Bill Parcells today said he just didn't see enough. Parcells says Henson has -NOT- been waived. But the coach wouldn't elaborate when asked if the Cowboys were trying to trade the quarterback, who started only one game for Dallas. For now, rookie free agent Matt Baker is the number three quarterback -- behind Drew Bledsoe and Tony Romo.

Linebacker Scott Shanle was traded to New Orleans today for an undisclosed draft choice.

Several players were released today. They are 2004 3rd-round pick Stephen Peterman, former TJC standout corner Quincy Butler, tight end Erik Jensen and linebacker John Saldi.
