Owens misses Cowboys' practice on Sunday

SAN ANTONIO -- Terrell Owens wasn't on the field when the Dallas Cowboys practiced Sunday.

There was no immediate word from the team about why Owens missed the workout.

Owens had taken part in four straight workouts, including two Saturday, since being given time off by coach Wade Phillips so the receiver could rest his sore legs and hamstrings. Owens went through drills full speed without any apparent problems during workouts Thursday through Saturday.

Phillips had said there could more rest for the 33-year-old Owens, but had given no previous indication that he would be off Sunday.

Phillips was scheduled to conduct his daily briefing with reporters after practice.

Owens' coach-ordered hiatus included sitting out both workouts Wednesday. That was a day after he came on the field in uniform, minus shoulder pads or a helmet, after being told by Phillips to take it easy.
