Cowart Pulls Hamstring

LB Sam Cowart was held out of the afternoon practice session due to a pulled right hamstring.

Cowart is coming off of an Achilles' tendon injury that forced him to miss most of last season. Both injuries are on the right leg. When asked of the injury, Cowart said, "It was just a tweak." James Darling practiced with the starting unit in Cowart's place. G Randy Thomas impinged his right shoulder on a collision with DT Larry Webster. He will be re-evaluated before monday's practice. OT Jumbo Elliot was also held out of the afternoon practice session, and Herm Edwards has said he will selectively choose to give veterans a day off…DT Giradie Mercer was also held out of practice…WR Santana Moss continued to impress in the afternoon session, catching several deep passes and showing off his speed…QB Vinny Testaverde looked very good in deep passing drills, but was picked off throwing an out route by a brilliant play from CB Aaron Beasley.
