    Cowboys left out in '08 Hall of Fame

    Staff and Wire Reports

    The Cowboys are not expected to have a representative in the Class of 2008 after the Pro Football Hall of Fame seniors committee selected Chicago Cardinals running back Marshall Goldberg and Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Emmitt Thomas as seniors candidates.

    Ex-Cowboys Bob Hayes and Chuck Howley were among the 17 seniors finalists.

    Goldberg and Thomas will join 15 modern-era candidates on the ballot that selectors will vote on Feb. 2, the day before Super Bowl XLII. The Class of 2008 will have a minimum of four and a maximum of seven inductees, two seniors candidates and five modern-era candidates, which is one more than this year.

    Seniors candidates must be retired from the [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]NFL[/FONT][/FONT] for 25 years.

    The Cowboys have had three players inducted the past two years: Troy Aikman and Rayfield Wright, a seniors candidate, in the Class of 2006 and Michael Irvin in the Class of 2007.

    Redskins: Washington acquired veteran offensive lineman Pete Kendall from the [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Jets[/FONT][/FONT] in a trade, hoping he'll fill a hole at left guard. The [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Redskins[/FONT][/FONT] also did what New York wouldn't, give Kendall a raise of $1 million, boosting his salary this year to $2.7 million, as part of a new, two-year $5 million contract.

    Bears: The status of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris remains unclear. Harris has not played since a hamstring injury in December that required surgery.

    Colts: Receiver Marvin Harrison returned to practice after tending to personal matters.

    Eagles: One of coach Andy Reid's sons, awaiting sentencing in a road-rage case, was detained on suspicion of driving while impaired. Britt Reid, 22, failed a sobriety test in a store parking lot around 3:45 p.m. and was given a blood test.

    Falcons: Quarterback D.J. Shockley and receiver Jamin Elliott were placed on injured reserve. Shockley will have surgery next week after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a preseason game. Elliott is out for the season with a knee injury.

    Lions: Quarterback Jon Kitna's status for the third preseason game remained uncertain. Kitna left Tuesday's practice with back spasms and has not taken part in drills since.

    Ravens: Cornerback Samari Rolle and wide receiver Mark Clayton insist they'll be ready for Baltimore's regular-season opener at Cincinnati. Rolle and Clayton sprained their right ankles in a 13-12 loss to the [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]New [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]York[/FONT][FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif] Giants[/FONT][[/FONT] on Sunday and are expected to sit out the remainder of the preseason.

    If my name was "Britt" I'd have a lot of pent up rage, too.
