CLEVELAND -- As we first warned you Friday afternoon, Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman will not play against the Browns today. Newman is still recovering from a groin injury that he suffered early in training camp, and I'm told he's still not able to accelerate. Owner Jerry Jones had already come out and said that cornerback Adam Jones would start in Newman's place.
For the Browns, it's no surprise that wide receiver and return man Josh Cribbs will sit out today's game with a high ankle sprain. Syndric Steptoe will take his place on kick and punt returns. The Browns are also without starting right guard Rex Hadnot and free safety Brodney Pool. They'll be replaced by Seth McKinney and Mike Adams.
