OXNARD, Calif. -- Dallas Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman
missed practice Monday afternoon because of a strained groin
sustained in the morning workout.
Coach Wade Phillips said Newman got tangled up with a receiver
during a play and twisted his leg awkwardly.
Phillips doesn't consider the injury serious.
Newman, who went to his first Pro Bowl last season, left the
field a few minutes before the morning practice ended. He watched
some of the afternoon practice but wasn't in uniform.
Also missing the afternoon practice were cornerback Quincy
Butler (strained hamstring) and linebacker Justin Rogers
