IRVING, Texas (AP) -Terrell Owens still wasn't able to practice Wednesday because of a high ankle sprain, continuing the drama of whether the Dallas Cowboys will have their newest All-Pro receiver for the playoff game Sunday against the New York Giants.
Coach Wade Phillips didn't even see Owens on Wednesday, but knew he was doing all he could to get healthy. And if T.O. says he's ready to go at game time, Phillips will let him play.
``The guy played pretty good in a Super Bowl game that they said he wasn't going to play in,'' Phillips said. ``So I'll be hopeful. But I really don't know.''
Phillips does know one thing: The rest of Owens' body will be in game shape.
``I don't think (stamina) would ever be an issue. He does sit-ups in his driveway,'' Phillips said, laughing.
``It's day to day,'' Phillips said, ``but we're going through a plan or process that's going to try and get him ready, and he's adhered to that. He works out at home, all the time, trying to get better. This is sometimes, a six- to eight-week injury, sometimes it's a four-week injury. So we're trying to get him back in three. That's where we are.''
The good news for the Cowboys was that Terry Glenn went through his most rigorous practice since coming back from two knee operations.
Glenn saw limited action in the season finale against Washington, but didn't catch a pass. On Wednesday, he went through an entire team workout for the first time since training camp.
``He wasn't starting and doing every play, but he did quite a few plays and ran quite a few routes,'' Phillips said. ``I'm somewhat encouraged there. ... Whatever you get from Terry is a bonus certainly. He's a very good player that's been hurt and has tried to come back and has made a valiant effort and I think he may be able to play.''
The rest of the injury news was good, too.
Center Andre Gurode went through the whole session, and Phillips called banged-up cornerbacks Terence Newman and Anthony Henry ``as healthy as they've been in a while.''
