--The Cowboys worked out four players Monday but did not sign them to contracts. The players were linebacker Marquis Smith (Carolina), linebacker Al Troy, defensive back Andrew Davison (Jets) and defensive end Ryan Wingrove (Jets).
--Defensive tackle Willie Blade, who has been sidelined
the past three weeks with a sprained left knee, will attempt to practice
--RB Troy Hambrick tallied 53 yards on 14 carries in
his first game in place of the departed Emmitt Smith. While Bill Parcells said
Hambrick had an adequate performance, he said the running game is not yet a
dependable force that the team can use to grind out drives on offense. And
that's his ultimate goal.
--QB Quincy Carter passed for a
career-high 268 yards but was otherwise mistake prone. He was intercepted once
and lost a fumble after committing no turnovers in the final three preseason
games. Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said Atlanta did a good job preparing for his
third-year quarterback. "They've had a chance to take a look at him and take
away some of the things that he does," Parcells said.
--CB Derek Ross is expected to miss at least one more game with a sprained knee.
