Cowboys | Looking for Watkins to step up

Tue, 10 Oct 2006 07:03:49 -0700

Rob Phillips, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells emphasized that rookie S Pat Watkins needs to shake off the poor performance he had during Week 5 and learn from his mistakes. "He needs to get it going," Parcells said of Watkins. "He had a little a tendency to not see the ball in the air and jump the first receiver's move. That's really what happened (Sunday) night. You have to see the ball thrown before you break." Watkins struggled in pass coverage, allowing several big plays to the Philadelphia Eagles. If Watkins continues to struggle, safeties Keith Davis or Marcus Coleman, who will return from his suspension this week, could replace him.

Cowboys | Coleman eligible to return

Mon, 09 Oct 2006 06:57:01 -0700

Rob Phillips, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys S Marcus Coleman is eligible to return to the team this week after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The Cowboys can utilize a one-week roster exemption when Coleman is released from reserve/suspended. That would allow him to resume practicing with the team without counting against the Cowboys' 53-man roster. If the club decides to add Coleman to the active roster next week, they will have to release a player.

Cowboys | Coleman just wants on the field

Thu, 08 Jun 2006 15:30:07 -0700

Nick Eatman, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys DB Marcus Coleman said he is unknown if the team will play him at safety or cornerback. "I can play a little of both," said Coleman. "Wherever they need me. I'll be playing corner or safety or in the nickel. I'm kind of the utility guy. I have to learn a lot of things - a lot of positions. I guess that's why they brought me in here." Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells has said he plans to play Coleman at cornerback and hopefully use him as the nickel safety. Coleman could also be used on special teams. "That's what I hope he can do," said Parcells. "But I don't know he can do it yet. He's a little rusty right now and a little overweight. He needs to lose about 10 pounds."
