The word is in on Terence Newman. The Pro-Bowl cornerback has strained his left groin and will be out for at least three weeks. That means Newman will not be on the field for the first two preseason games (August 9th at San Diego and August 16th at Denver).
Newman missed significant time last preseason as well, which caused him to miss the first two games of the regular season. He did not let injury stop him from making it to Hawaii last year, hopefully he can repeat.
Like I said before, Mike Jenkins is shouldering the brunt of the workload while Orlando Scandrick and Alan Ball try to make the 5th roster spot. Stay tuned these coming weeks to see who pulls away as the favorite. With ESPN naming the Cowboys secondary tops in the league, they’ll need young guys like this to hold the crown while Newman recoups.
