    "Terence Newman has not missed a regular-season game in his four-year career. He is not sure he will be able to extend his consecutive games played streak to 65 when the Cowboys open the season on Sept. 9 against the New York Giants.
    Newman has a small tear of his right plantar fascia, a band of tissue that starts at your heel and runs along the bottom of your foot. The injury will keep him out of Thursday's preseason finale at Minnesota, and the Cowboys aren't sure when their top cornerback will return to practice.
    "I am going to try to be ready for the opener," Newman said. "That is the target date. I don't think I am going to miss the opener. If I am ready, I am playing. If I'm not ready, I am playing. I am going to do all I can to be ready."
    I dunno, did Mario actually have a tear of the PF ? I think I'm gaining even more appreciation of the difficulty that Mario went thru last season.

    There has been some talk of him resting during the week, getting a shot or two on the weekend, and playing on Sunday. Sound familiar?
