 IRVING, Texas (AP) -Dallas receiver Terry Glenn will miss the Cowboys' opener Sunday against the New York Giants after injuring the knee that was operated on in the preseason.
The 33-year-old missed all four preseason games after arthroscopic surgery Aug. 1 to remove a cyst from the back of his right kneecap. The latest injury came in practice two days ago, coach Wade Phillips said Friday.
``Unfortunately, he had another injury that was not related to the original injury,'' Phillips said.
The team's Web site said Glenn could be out at least two games, but Phillips said his status beyond Sunday wasn't known. Glenn wasn't available for comment.
Glenn, entering his 12th season, caught 70 passes for 1,047 yards and six touchdowns last year and gave the Cowboys a deep threat that helped Terrell Owens lead the NFL with 13 touchdowns.
``It's a blow not to have him for this ball game, but there are no excuses,'' Phillips said. ``We're not crybabies. No crying in football.''
Patrick Crayton, who has 1,019 yards and seven touchdowns in three seasons, will move into Glenn's No. 2 role behind Owens. Sam Hurd will be the third receiver.
``Patrick Crayton is very dependable,'' Phillips said. ``He's a very heady player. He always finds a way to get open.''
Phillips said cornerback Terence Newman (foot) and backup linebacker Kevin Burnett (ankle) would be game-time decisions.
``I feel like I can go,'' Newman said. ``Every day it's getting better. I just don't know if it will be good enough.''
Jacques Reeves will start if Newman can't. Reeves has started one game in three seasons.
Outside linebacker Greg Ellis, who is trying to come back from a ruptured Achilles' heel, isn't expected to play against the Giants. If he doesn't, first-round pick Anthony Spencer will start in his place.
