Friday Cowboys Links

The Cowboys are not interested in QB Mike Vick, who just began the final two months of his sentence in home confinement.

And ESPN's Chris Mortensen believes that is only because of the Cowboys' new-found commitment to chemistry and to protect Tony Romo.

The Cowboys are considering cutting or trading Greg Ellis.

Receiver Isaiah Stanback underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee Thursday for an injury he suffered in practice on Tuesday. There isn't a timetable for his return.

Tony Romo on T.O.: "That's not up to any of us players to decide," said Romo, who is distancing himself from Jones' decision to axe Owens. "That's why we're players. The organization and management decides those things. We're all at risk every offseason, depending upon everything. You always want to go out there and try to have all the guys you play with every year. That just doesn't happen. We have to go with the guys we have here now, go forward and keep improving."

Michael Irvin's "4th and Long" was #2 in its timeslot among Men aged 18-34.

DeMarcus Ware did not tweet he's close to an extension

Reports surfaced yesterday that DeMarcus Ware tweeted that he and the Dallas Cowboys were close to a deal.

Per Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, however, Ware says that he doesn't have a Twitter account. Therefore, he didn't tweet it.

"You don't want anyone on the Internet being an impostor of you," Ware said. "You don't know where it can lead with all that false information."

Ware, who led the NFL with 20 sacks last year, is in the final year of his contract. In his last 36 games, Ware has 39 1/2 sacks.

Joe DeCamillis has broken back after practice facility collapses

Mother Nature has cut the Dallas Cowboys' three-day rookie mini-camp short this weekend. A thunderstorm on Saturday afternoon collapsed the Dallas Cowboys practice facility.

None of the injuries (to the 12 injured) appear to be life-threatening according to Dr. Paul Pepe, chairman of the emergency department at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

None of the Cowboys' players suffered any serious injuries, but special teams coach
Joe DeCamillis, who is the son-in-law of Dan Reeves, suffered a broken vertebrae.
"It's just lucky and fortunate and a miracle really he's not paralyzed," Reeves told Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News.
DeCamillis will likely need back surgery.

Sunday's practice has been canceled.
