More Rest For Spears, Newman And Costa

The Cowboys won't release an official injury report until Wednesday, as Monday's work is a Week 1 bonus in preparation for the New York Jets, but a handful of players weren't able to take advantage of the extra session.

Cornerback Terence Newman (groin), who has been out since the first week of training camp in San Antonio, did not suit out, but worked on resistence cords with team athletic trainers. Defensive lineman Marcus Spears (groin), who has been out since the second preseason game, did not dress for the workout either.

New starting center Phil Costa, who has a sprained knee, stayed in to receive treatment. He missed the last two weeks of the preseason, but the Cowboys are confident he will be ready to go on opening night.

Also working with trainers was linebacker Bradie James (foot), who came to practice dressed out but did not take part in position drills during the portion of the session open to the media. Miles Austin (hamstring), began the morning working on cords and was dressed out, but sat out position drills as well.

Cornerback Mike Jenkins and guard Kyle Kosier did practice with their respective position groups, however.
