* RB Julius Jones sat out the second half of the Eagles game because of an ankle injury. He said he could have gone back in but coach Bill Parcells held him out because the injury didn't look good. His status will be reevaluated when the Cowboys return to practice on Wednesday.
* WR Terry Glenn has 23 catches for 518 yards and three touchdowns through the first five games of the year. He is
on pace for the best season of his career and is having a rebirth of sorts
in his 10th year in the NFL. Long forgotten as an elite wideout because of injuries and
off-the-field woes, Glenn is getting that respect back that he is one
league's most dangerous wideouts and can't be single covered.
* QB Drew Bledsoe is currently leading the NFC in passer rating (third in
the NFL) with a mark of 102.0. He is also first in the NFC and second in the
NFL in yards per attempt (8.50). His 1,351 yards passing is third most in
the NFC, fourth in the NFL and his 10 touchdown passes are third best in the
NFC, fourth in the NFL. So much for the decision Buffalo made in getting rid
of Bledsoe for J.P. Losman, who has already been benched. Cowboys owner
Jerry Jones said Bledsoe is the difference in his team and the reason they
have a chance to be legitimate contenders for the first time since Troy
* RB Keylon Kincade has been signed to the practice squad. The Cowboys
released kicker Scott Suisham to make room for Kincade.
* K Jose Cortez has been on a short leash ever since the beginning of the
season. Signed as a training camp body, Cortez inherited the kicking job
when three-year incumbent Billy Cundiff was injured in the preseason. The
Cowboys brought in kickers on a weekly basis to try out against Cortez.
After a 4-for-4 performance against the Eagles, he can breathe a little
easier. "Cortez is doing a pretty good job," coach Bill Parcells said. "I am
pretty happy about it."
* LB Bradie James had a career-high nine tackles against the Eagles as he
continues to get more comfortable in the starting lineup. Against the
Eagles, he took over calling the defensive signals because Dat Nguyen was
out and had his best game. He also saved a touchdown with a pass deflection
in the end zone.
* LB Demarcus Ware is getting all the attention because he is a rookie
first-round pick who is leading the team in sacks with three. But the truth
remains the same. The team's best pass rusher remains defensive end Greg Ellis, who led the team in sacks the past four years. Ellis is a tick behind
Ware with 2.5 sacks. He has team high nine quarterback pressures. Ware is
next with three.
