Jason Garrett's parents are not back in their home in Monmouth Beach, N.J., yet, but the Cowboys coach said they are doing fine. Earlier this week, Jim, a former Cowboys scout, and Jane Garrett evacuated 10 miles inland as Sandy moved directly toward them.
"A ton of sand, I think they said 4-feet of sand on Ocean Avenue," Garrett said Wednesday morning. "They actually did OK, relatively speaking. Obviously, it's a real tragedy and so many different people are trying to dig out of their situations. So I'm quite sure the people up there are going to rally together. It seems like the leadership is great and they'll bounce back."
The Cowboys have four players from that area -- Miles Austin (Garfield, N.J.), Phil Costa (Moorestown, N.J.), Sean Lissemore (Dumont, N.J.) and Kevin Ogletree (Queens, N.Y.).
"It seems like everybody is doing OK," Garrett said of players' relatives on the East Coast.
