Looks like T.O. is starting to get his usual summer vacation in, as today he didn’t take part in the Cowboys morning practice resting his sore hamstring. Owens got a break as well on Tuesday to rest, and per usual at camp, all eyes were on the flamboyant wide receiver. He wore shorts and spent part of practice working out with trainers. He spent the session doing leg kicks with large OL Flozell Adams, who is also trying to come back from knee surgery. T.O. did stand with his offensive teammates during team drills.
It appears that new coach Wade Phillips is taking a vastly different approach than that of former coach Bill Parcells, as on Tuesday, the coach told the WR to take it easy. It was about this time last season that the daily spectacle at camp was watching Owens work out on a bike. Parcells would only refer to him as “the player.” Now both Cowboys top receivers are not out on the field, as Terry Glenn was back in Dallas for arthroscopic surgery on his right knee that will keep him out for about two weeks.
