Once again, Adam "Pacman" Jones is back with the Dallas Cowboys.
Thought to be out for the season because of a neck injury, Jones returned to practice yesterday and is expected to play Saturday night against Baltimore, both at cornerback and returning kicks, after having missed only one game.
Coach Wade Phillips said the herniated disk discovered last week has healed, perhaps because he already had the problem and it was only aggravated by a hit he took two games ago in Pittsburgh. That was his first game back with the Cowboys after being suspended from six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
"He's got nine lives," Phillips said. "Maybe he's got 18."
Harrison, who apparently hurt his knee against Detroit on Sunday, "actually has a hamstring issue," coach Tony Dungy said.
In other team news, a spokesman revealed that owner Tom Benson, 81, had surgery to remove a cancerous mass on his left kidney on Dec. 10.
"It was a slobber moment," Walker said. "Yeah, say it, don't spray it.
Berger told Pittsburgh reporters he doesn't believe Walker.
"I had my mouth open and was about to say something when he spit right on me," Berger said. "It wasn't something that happens by accident when you're talking sometimes."
Under the plan, Dan Rooney and his son, team president Art II, will own 30 percent of the team, meeting a league requirement on the equity on controlling ownership.
