    Elam says Newman up to speed after their first practice together




    Abe Elam and Terence Newman practiced together for the first time Thursday.

    Elam, a veteran safety signed, signed with the Cowboys on Aug. 5 to help implement new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s scheme. But that was two days after Newman suffered a groin injury.

    Newman had been out since then until Thursday, when he got back on the field.

    “It was good getting him back out there, working on the communication, getting him used to some of the things,” Elam said. “He’s been doing a good job in the classroom, learning, discussing things and bringing some stuff to our attention, as well. So it’s good. It’s good to have Terence back.”

    Newman, a nine-year veteran, is coming off a season in which he made career highs in interceptions (five) and tackles (81)....

    When Newman is healthy he is a damn good corner and has been a solid player for us since we drafted him. Plus he is a top shelf person and a hard worker.

    Getting a healthy Newman back will really help this evolving D.

    Last year, Terence Newman set single season highs both in tackles and interceptions.

    It's crazy how people of the fan base always think the top players 2nd rate. Bottom line, we've been fustrated with Newman's injuries however he's been a very good player.

    TNew is better than most starting CBs in this league surely, and his return is a big bonus. With Scandrick possibly returning the following week, we should be back to 100% in the secondary following the bye. We'll need to be vs. the Pats...

    It's time to take care of that little red troll, Santana Moss.

    No mercy, TNEW.
