Bad newz for Greg:


Pain has Cowboys' Ellis worried about career

NFL.com wire reports



IRVING, Texas (Aug. 12, 2007) -- Cowboys linebacker Greg Ellis is no longer worried about losing his job to a rookie or about wanting a new contract. His new concern is whether he might be forced to retire because of an injury.

Ellis tore his left Achilles' tendon last November and went through an aggressive rehabilitation to trim a few months off the usual 12-month recovery so he could be back for the start of training camp. Thinking he was ready, he went out for the first workout, but lasted only a few minutes.

The pain forced him to stop. Nearly three weeks later, a spot above his heel and below the surgically repaired tear is still hurting him badly.

"It's a pain you can't deal with," he said. "It never goes away -- even when I wake up in the morning, walking around, the whole deal."

An MRI shows no problems, so the team's medical staff isn't too alarmed by this first setback in what had been a flawless recovery. They remain confident Ellis will return. Ellis wishes he could share their optimism.

"It's just frustrating," he said. "What the heck is going on? Why won't it go away? I just keep saying maybe there's something to the time period."

Ellis was hurt Nov. 12, meaning today was the nine-month mark. Waiting three more months would be nice, but the season starts in four weeks, at home against the New York Giants on Sunday, Sept. 9.

"I want to be ready for the Giants game," he said. "I want to be part of it."

No current player has been with the Cowboys longer than Ellis, who hopes to be heading into his 10th season. He has led the team in sacks six times and has been the captain of the defense the past two years.

He made headlines last season when coach Bill Parcells moved him from defensive end to outside linebacker so he would be a better fit in the team's 3-4 scheme. Ellis was so afraid of failing that he asked to be traded or released, or to have more security written into his contract. He wound up being tied for the lead in sacks when he was hurt.

In April, the Cowboys spent their top pick on Anthony Spencer, a college end being converted to outside linebacker. Seeing Dallas invest in his replacement, Ellis squawked again. He continued grumbling even after his training camp setback. His slow return has prompted accusations that he's faking it.

"This is not about me trying to get more money," he said. "This might be it for me. Hopefully it's not, but that's the reality of the situation."

The question might become how long Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Wade Phillips are willing to wait for him.

What if he needs that full year? That would mean Dallas going at least seven games with essentially a 52-man roster.

Ellis could go on injured reserve, but that would wipe out his entire season. He can't go on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list because he's already participated in a practice, even if it was only the initial few minutes of the very first one.

"That's what it always comes down to, the business side of it," Ellis said. "What are Jerry and Wade going to do? I don't know. They haven't talked to me about it."

Phillips sees no reason to have that chat.

"Our guys say he's day to day," the coach said. "I am going with that."

While the team has been steady with its prognosis, Ellis keeps picking up negative vibes elsewhere.

For instance, at the preseason opener Aug. 9, broadcaster Pat Summerall told him, "You know, Greg, a lot of guys don't make it back from this." Ellis also got a call last week from his wife, who was in North Carolina when longtime Panthers safety Mike Minter held a tearful news conference announcing his retirement.

"She was like, 'If this is it, I don't want you to be crying and stuff. I want you to be all right,' " Ellis said. "I told her, 'I'll be all right. I can't tell you I won't shed a tear or two.' "

Ellis admits the thought has entered his mind. With his 32nd birthday on Aug. 14 and only one good leg, he can't help but wonder if he has already played the last game of his career.

"They say some people don't make it back, some make it back and have no problems and some make it back and they're not quite the same guy," he said. "Which category am I going to fall in?"

Not yet. This team on paper has the best talent since those teams but they have to prove it this season. Those 90s Cowboys were so good even when they weren't on they would still kick the other teams a.ss. I will say this I am more excited with anticipation this season than any season I have had since the mid 90's.

If our offensive line steps up then I'll give Miami the win...if Trent Green gets enough time to throw, and combined with our defense we will win.

If our offensive line sucks as always, then our defense will keep the game close, but Cowboys will win.

I only speak the truth.

I'm j/k. After getting our @sses whooped by the Lions and barely sliding into the playoffs...I'll never count a game as a "W"

To be perfectly honest, I think our defense will be the face of the 'Boys this year. If they can maintain good coverage in the secondary, keep up the relentless Wade Phillips 3-4 attack and stay healthy, they'll be just fine. I have a feeling the D will bail the team out of some close calls if the offense stalls a bit. I saw the Vikings game and went to the Texans game and I wasn't impressed with the offense, at all!

"Fingers Crossed"
Cowboys Optimistic On Newman; Unsure About Ellis



IRVING, Texas - They enter the regular season with their veteran pass-rusher questionable for the game after missing all of the preseason.

They have another veteran cornerback who might not play because of an injury, but his chances of playing seem to be increasing.

Heading into Sunday's season opener, that team description could fit both the Cowboys and the Giants.

But while New York is still uncertain whether defensive end Michael Strahan or cornerback Sam Madison will play, there also aren't definitive answers in Dallas about the Cowboys' two defensive standouts.

Cornerback Terence Newman and linebacker Greg Ellis both missed practice again Wednesday, as did linebacker Kevin Burnett.

Newman, who missed the last three preseason games because of a partial tear in his plantar fascia, worked with a strength coach on a side field, alongside Ellis and Burnett. Veteran receiver Terry Glenn, who missed all of preseason following an Aug. 1 knee scope, had full participation in practice.

Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips did not go into detail Wednesday on Newman's chances of playing this week, but team owner Jerry Jones sounded rather confident.

"I really liked his response today," Jones said Wednesday of Newman. "We'll see how he feels in the morning. Those things are sore in the morning. I know he's going to do everything he can to play. We're hoping we can get him out in the actual team (practice on Thursday).

"He was pushing off and then would push off and then come back a little while later and push off again. He did some things today that when he pushed off a little yesterday were a little more sensitive yesterday than today. So it was an improvement from yesterday."

Jones also said he expected Burnett, who underwent surgery last week to remove bone chips from his ankle, to practice with the team on Thursday. But it's a different story for Ellis (sore heel), who hasn't practiced since July 25, the first day of training camp, still rehabbing from the Achilles injury he suffered last November.

Jones would only say Ellis is "working on it," in terms of trying to make a return.

At this point, the Cowboys have to doubt if Ellis can be ready to play against the Giants, despite Phillips saying he doesn't have a policy on players needing to practice to be able to play in games. However, that might apply more to Newman or Burnett than Ellis, considering he has practiced just once the entire off-season, including training camp, OTA practices and two mini-camps.

But if indeed the veteran pass-rusher doesn't play against the Giants, the Cowboys at least have a first-round draft pick to turn to. Anthony Spencer, the 26th overall pick from Purdue, started all four preseason games at outside linebacker.

Phillips has given Spencer plenty of praise during training camp and the preseason and has maintained the rookie would start if Ellis can't go, instead of using Bobby Carpenter, who got some work at outside linebacker in preseason.

Phillips said there's not much the defense can do to overcompensate for Spencer's inexperience.

"I don't know about giving him help - that's why you play with 11 (players)," Phillips said. "He's going to have some help. There's certain things that we can do, where maybe he doesn't have to cover in certain situations and utilize him rushing more. But he's still got to play the game at that position technique- and a.ssignment-wise the way we want it done. He's working at that. I think he'll be all right there. I think he'll be fine."

At least the Cowboys have a first-round pick to throw out there in case Ellis doesn't play. While the thought of using Carpenter on the outside is an idea, the Cowboys can't simply move him completely from inside linebacker, especially if Burnett is banged up, too.

Look for Carpenter to be a primary backup at both inside and outside positions, regardless of who plays Sunday night.

Burnett had been working as the inside linebacker on the dime defense alongside Roy Williams. If he doesn't play, Bradie James will take his spot.

Burnett, who has been injury-prone in his first two seasons, said this latest setback has been more frustrating, considering how well he had performed in the preseason.

"Any injury is tough because it kind of messes with your mind," said Burnett, who has now undergone five surgeries since joining the Cowboys in 2005. "How many more injuries can I withstand? It's kind of disheartening a little bit. But no injury is a good one, but if you're going to pick a surgery to have, it would be this one."

And Burnett can say that knowing he has a good chance to play this week, if not by the second game when the Cowboys travel to Miami. The second-year linebacker now has all of the staples removed from his ankle following his arthroscopic surgery.

While the Cowboys are used to playing without Ellis and can use other proven players if Burnett doesn't play, that's not the case with Newman, which is one reason why his injury seems to be the most concerning.

Newman has established himself as one of the team's defensive leaders, if not one of the NFL's best cornerbacks.

He's also been a staple of durability since arriving on the scene in 2003. Newman has not missed a game in four years, starting all 64 games in his career. The Cowboys are worried less about Newman's streak and probably more about his backup.

Fourth-year pro Jacques Reeves will start if Newman doesn't play and will have a big role in the dime package either way. In that defense, Reeves will likely stay at left cornerback, and either Newman or backup Nate Jones will play in the slot.

Jones, who like Reeves was a seventh-round pick in 2004, was considered a long shot to make this 53-man roster this year. He played sparingly in the last two preseason games, but his experience on defense, along with being one of the team's special teams players, certainly helped his cause.

"I'm just excited about the opportunity," Jones said. "Whatever happens, I'll be ready. If (Newman) can't go, then we've got step up. But it doesn't matter, really. In my position, you've got to get yourself ready for anything to happen."

The Cowboys are ready for all contingency plans. They just wouldn't mind if they go unused this week.
