IRVING, Texas (Ticker) - The Dallas Cowboys knew they would have a shortage of receivers for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. They didn't realize that Terry Glenn would miss the rest of the season.
The Cowboys on Saturday placed Glenn on injured reserve with torn ligaments in his left foot and waived veteran defensive tackle Chad Eaton, who played in all six games this season and started one.
Glenn suffered what was diagnosed as a sprained foot in the first quarter of last Sunday's 41-20 loss at Green Bay. He was expected to miss two weeks, but further exams revealed torn ligaments.
Once referred to as "she" by Cowboys coach Bill Parcells for his propensity to miss games with nagging injuries while with New England, Glenn played in all 16 games last season for Parcells, catching 52 passes for 754 yards and five touchdowns. This season, he had 24 receptions for a team-high 400 yards in six games.
"Obviously, we're going to miss him (Glenn)," Dallas quarterback Vinny Testaverde said. "But at the same time we have to move on. That's how we operate here."
Unfortunately for the Cowboys, newly-acquired receiver Quincy Morgan is expected to miss Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. Morgan had four catches for 76 yards in his Dallas debut last week after being obtained from Cleveland for receiver Antonio Bryant.
