If Glenn is out any reasonable amount of time Patrick Crayton is going to steal his job and become a big fantasy surprise this year.

yeah anyone needing WR depth should grab crayton

Dallas Cowboys receiver Terry Glenn likely will miss the first two weeks of the season and possibly more, owner Jerry Jones said Thursday night.

Jones broke the news on the team's Web site one day after Glenn participated in his first practice since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Aug. 1.

Glenn, 33, completed the workout with no problems, but he was forced to miss Thursday's practice with what coach Wade Phillips described as swelling in the knee. After Glenn underwent an MRI, Jones said the Cowboys probably would be without their only true deep threat in Sunday's opener against the New York Giants.

Glenn's understudy is Patrick Crayton. If Crayton moves into the starting lineup, Brackenridge graduate Sam Hurd would become the No. 3 receiver.

“With the offense (coordinator) Jason (Garrett) has, it will give us the flexibility with the players we've got to help us overcome this,” Jones said.

Crayton is returning punts this weekend, too. If your league counts return yards, he could be a nice play as a #3.

WOW, that's an incredible pickup. In most of my leagues Crayton isn't there on the Waiver Wire.

Anyway, if Terry Glenn is out for any length of time it could really hurt the Cowboys. Not because of a lack of receiver talent. Crayton is a great possession receiver and Sam Hurd has had flashes of greatness and by week 8 or so our draft pick Isaiah Stanbach should be WR3 and he has great speed and could be an incredible deep threat. However, the greatest way the injury does hurt us is not having the WR to go out for the deep ball especially since TO will be doubled nearly all of the time.

Per Rotoworld:

ESPN's Matt Mosley reports that a member of the Cowboys organization told him that Glenn would miss the season.
An article reporting the same was posted on Dallas' team site Thursday, but pulled when owner Jerry Jones reportedly decided to hold off on making the announcement. Jones said in a revised story that Glenn would miss "at least two weeks." Glenn's agent says no decision has been made, but Glenn owners can drop him. Patrick Crayton needs to be owned in all leagues.

As for the punt returning thing...

Normally its Terrance Newman that returns punts. If he is active and they like the way he can cut on his foot then I would expect him to return. That doesn't look too likely though, so that would put Crayton at the top of the line to return. However, if Crayton is going to be the WR2, it wouldn't surprise me to see Sam Hurd, Isaiah Stanbach or a defensive player returning punts.

From DallasCowboys.com:
Even if cornerback Terence Newman ends up playing Sunday against the Giants, it's unlikely he will be able to handle the punt return duties, too.

Phillips said wide receiver Patrick Crayton then would be the team's top punt returner, but that could change with starter Terry Glenn likely out with a knee injury and Crayton probably taking his place at wide receiver.

So what began as contingency plans for the Cowboys in Thursday's practice probably will become a reality for Sunday night.

Looking for sure-handed players to catch the punts first rather than worrying about big returns, the Cowboys also worked running back Marion Barber, cornerback Anthony Henry and even Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams at punt returner on Thursday.

That's pretty big news, telling your users to drop a guy who caught 70 passes for 1,000 yards and six TDs last year.

They had better be sure about that. If they're wrong, and it bears noting that no reliable soure has yet said Glenn will miss the season, they're going to tick off a LOT of people.
