IRVING, Texas -- At the beginning of the Cowboys’ season cornerback depth seemed to be one of the club’s biggest issues.
Mike Jenkins was coming back from a stinger. Terence Newman missed almost all of camp and the entire preseason with a groin injury. Orlando Scandrick suffered a high ankle sprain in the season opener at the New York Jets, which forced safety Barry Church to play some corner.
In Sunday’s 34-7 win against St. Louis the Cowboys used every cornerback on the roster with the starting defense at some point and not because of injury.
“We started off playing a lot of man and that kept everybody fresh,” Newman said. “I think it was a great thing. It’s good to be able to cheer on everybody you work with and practice with. It was fun to see everybody on offense get in. It was a perfect situation. I wish all the games would end like this but it won’t.”
