Cowboys CB Newman has groin surgery

Dallas Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman underwent groin surgery on Friday and is expected to miss about a month, according to a Cowboys source.

The Cowboys initially sent the results of an MRI exam of Newman’s injury to Dr. William C. Meyers, chair of surgery at Drexel Univesity in Philadelphia. After Meyers studied the MRI exam, he requested a meeting with Newman. Once the two met in person, a determination was made for Newman to undergo surgery for a tear in his groin muscle.

As painful as it sounds, the surgery went better than doctors had hoped. Initially the feeling was that Newman could be sidelined six to eight weeks. But the feeling now is that Newman could be back within a month, which is good news for a Cowboys secondary that is unsure of the status of cornerback Adam Jones.

The league is now investigating the incident involving Jones and it is expected to complete its review next week. Now Dallas’ issues at cornerback are a bit more extensive than people thought.
