Cowboys | Glover OK with New Role, Wants to Play at Key Times

Tom Orsborn, of the Express-News, reports Dallas Cowboys DT La'Roi Glover realizes his playing time is going to slip some this season. Early in his career he observed how veteran players reacted to reduced playing time. He found that some shrugged it off, acted professionally and benefited from the rest. Others "took it to heart" and went into "the tank." Glover is determined to make the best of his situation in Dallas, although he still expects to be on the field at key moments. "It will help to get a rest, a blow," Glover said. "But when the first-team defense goes on the field after the kickoff, I want to be part of that unit. And in the fourth quarter, when the game is on the line, I want to be on the field then as well." "I think (Glover) fits in fine," said Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells. "I think he'll be fine. I want to play him 60-65 percent of the time. He's certainly going to (play on obvious passing downs). That's half the plays right there."
