Cowboy’s Ware and Barber Day to Day

Dallas linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back Marion Barber were not at practice Monday.  Coach Wade cogirlsPhillips said both were “day to day.” Ware, the NFL sacks leader, has a hyper extended left knee and Barber has a dislocated right pinkie toe.

MRI tests Friday revealed no significant damage for Ware and Barber. Both were injured in the Cowboys’ 34-9 victory over the Seahawks on Thanksgiving.  Phillips expects Ware to practice this week, but was less certain about Barber.

Redskins Cut Shaun Alexander

The Washington Redskins have released running back Shaun Alexander after four games with the team.  The 31 year old former MVP had provided insurance while injuries prevented Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts from redskins_logo_smallplaying.

Portis and Betts continue to battle through injuries, but the Redskins apparently felt they needed Alexander’s roster spot to help with depth on the D-line after defensive end Andre Carter suffered a foot injury against the Seattle Seahawks this past week.  Portis carried the ball 29 times for 143 yards and looked to be fine during Sundays game.  But word out of Redskins camp is that Portis suffered a strained ribcage muscle on Sunday.

NFC East Round Up

With starting running back Brandon Jacobs out with a knee injury, the Giants took to the air to win their sixth in a row.  Manning threw for three touchdowns in his return to the scene of his Super Bowl MVP performance and the New York Giants beat Arizona 37-29 to snap the Cardinals’ seven-game home winning streak.

Manning completed 26 of 33 for 240 yards with no interceptions as the Giants moved to 10-1, tied for the best record in the NFL.

Terrell Owens broke out with seven catches for 213 yards and the Dallas defense played great when it had to, helping the Cowboys beat the San Francisco 49ers 35-22 Sunday.  Tony Romo was 23-of-39 for 341 yards and three touchdowns in his second game playing with a splint protecting a broken pinkie on his passing hand.

Dallas (7-4) has won consecutive games for the first time since starting 3-0. With Seattle coming to Texas Stadium on Thursday, the Cowboys could distance themselves even more from their recent 2-4 rut and could go steaming into December in prime position for a wild-card playoff berth.

Clinton Portis gained 143 yards on 29 carries, including key runs late that helped preserve the Redskins’ first victory in almost a month, 20-17 over the Seattle Seahawks.  It ended a two-game losing streak for Washington (7-4), which hosts the division-leading New York Giants (10-1) on Sunday.

Plaxico Suspended

NFC East foe Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Various media outlets have said it was due to the fact he did not show up for practice on Monday and would not return any phone calls from team officials.

General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin informed Burress of the suspension Wednesday morning before the team held a bye-week practice.

The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Burress will miss the Giants’ game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 5.

The Giants have a bye week, so Burress will lose two paychecks under the suspension. He will not be with the team during the bye week, and won’t be allowed to practice with the team next week.
