Dallas’ Williams injures wrist, is day-to-day
Dallas receiver Roy Williams
missed the team’s second practice Sunday with a sprained left wrist sustained when he landed hard earlier in the day.
The Cowboys said X-rays were negative and that Williams, expected to be the team’s No. 1 receiver with Terrell Owens
gone, is day-to-day.
Williams arrived from winless Detroit in mid-October and received a $45 million, five-year contract extension.
Cornerback Mike Jenkins
returned to practice after missing a week with a sprained right ankle. Neither Jenkins nor Terence Newman
, among the team’s top three cornerbacks, played in the preseason opener Thursday night. Newman sustained a slight groin strain Aug. 8, the same day Jenkins was hurt.
Coach Wade Phillips
expects Newman to be back at practice today, when the Cowboys have only an afternoon workout. Phillips has said Newman and Jenkins could have played last week if it were the regular season.
Receiver Brandon Marshall
and free safety Brian Dawkins
returned to practice. Marshall had missed more than a week of workouts with a leg injury. Friday, an Atlanta jury found him not guilty of misdemeanor battery against his former girlfriend.
Dawkins had his right hand heavily wrapped and was wearing an orange protective jersey.
