Last week at this time, Terrell Owens appeared to be gearing up for his first action this preseason when he returned to training camp after missing 13 consecutive practices.
And while Bill Parcells announced that he still wouldn't play Owens in Monday night's game against the Saints, the thought was Owens would be ready to go for Saturday's game against San Francisco.
Parcells said Wednesday that Owens would not be participating in the team's first practice at Valley Ranch since returning home from training camp and likely won't play Saturday either.
As it turns out, Owens' hamstring is acting up again.
In fact, he had another MRI done to see if there was more damage than originally thought.
"It was negative," he told reporters Wednesday. "A little fluid showing in there. It's frustrating. But at this point I have to be smart about it."
When asked if he felt like he could play in the Cowboys' third preseason game Saturday, Owens responded, "At this point, no. Not the way I feel now."
Owens also said that he has not felt any pressure to get back on the field from Bill Parcells or owner Jerry Jones.
"I've got to be patient," he said. "I've never felt like I was never pressured to get back on the field. For me, I'm just going to do what's best for me."
