LANDOVER, Md. - Terrell Owens might not be ready to go when the Dallas Cowboys play their first playoff game.
“Terrell’s still iffy,” Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said after Sunday’s 27-6 loss to the Washington Redskins in the regular-season finale.
Owens was hurt in last weekend’s victory over the Carolina Panthers.
“You’re not as good offensively without T.O.,” said quarterback Tony Romo, who was 7-for-16 for 86 yards and an interception in about 2½ quarters of work against Washington.
Having secured home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs a week ago, the Cowboys played without four starters: Owens (sprained ankle), cornerback Terence Newman (knee), center Andre Gurode (knee) and nose tackle Jay Ratliff (knee).
“I’m sure we’ll have Newman and some of those guys” back in the lineup when NFC East champion Dallas hosts its opening postseason game in two weeks, Phillips said.
Receiver Terry Glenn, who has been sidelined with a right knee injury, was active for the first time this season Sunday. He played but did not catch a pass.
A couple of Cowboys suggested Glenn was the victim of a cheap shot by a member of the Redskins.
“I think they were trying to hurt me,” Glenn said.
