Roy late to practice; Newman doesn't practice

Receiver Roy Williams had a family emergency but made it for the team portion of practice. Coach Wade Phillips said Williams informed the team before practice that he would be late.

Starting cornerback Terence Newman missed practice with a rib muscle strain. Phillips said he expected Newman to play. Newman was injured on his interception return on the third play from scrimmage Monday night.

"All indications from him and from our staff is that he will play," Phillips said. "That's what we're looking at right now. It could change."

The Cowboys could make a roster move if Newman is unable to play. They have only three cornerbacks, though safety Alan Ball, a converted corner, has been working at corner some this week. Ball played some corner during Monday night's game.
