Owens 'still iffy' for playoffs after skipping loss to Redskins
LANDOVER, Md. -- Terrell Owens might not be ready to go when
the Dallas Cowboys play their first playoff game.
"Terrell's still iffy," Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said after
Sunday's 27-6 loss to the Washington Redskins in the regular-season
Owens was hurt in last weekend's victory over the
"You're not as good offensively without T.O.," said
quarterback Tony Romo, who was 7-for-16 for 86 yards and an
interception in about 2 1/2 quarters of work against Washington.
Having secured home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs
a week ago, the Cowboys played without four starters: Owens
(sprained ankle), cornerback Terence Newman (knee), center
Andre Gurode (knee) and nose tackle Jay Ratliff (knee).
"I'm sure we'll have Newman and some of those guys" back in
the lineup when NFC East champion Dallas hosts its opening
postseason game in two weeks, Phillips said.
Receiver Terry Glenn, who has been sidelined with a right knee
injury, was active for the first time this season Sunday. He played
but did not catch a pass.
A couple of Cowboys suggested Glenn was the victim of a cheap
shot by a member of the Redskins.
"I think they were trying to hurt me," Glenn said.
