Plaxico Burress not concerned about corners
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- To Plaxico Burress it doesn’t matter if the Cowboys are using Orlando Scandrick or Alan Ball, Terence Newman or Mike Jenkins or Deion Sanders and Everson Walls as their cornerbacks in Sunday’s season opener.
Newman was all but ruled out by owner and general manager Jerry Jones on Wednesday with a groin injury and Jenkins left practice early Wednesday with a knee injury.
Burress, who will play in his first game in two years after being sent to prison, said he is not as familiar with Scandrick and Ball as he is Newman and Jenkins. He played against those two when he was with the New Giants in 2008.
“Our mindset hasn’t changed,” Burress said on a conference call. “Our mindset is to be effective, execute in the passing game and be where we’re supposed to be and make big plays. It really doesn’t matter who’s out there. Our mindset doesn’t change. We’re just going to try and be as flawless as we possibly can in the passing game.”
