Dallas LT Adams lost for season, WR Crayton out a month

The Dallas Cowboys have lost left tackle Flozell Adams for the season because of torn knee ligaments. The offense earlier took a hit with news that receiver Patrick Crayton is out at least one month with an ankle injury -- but it's not broken. Coach Bill Parcells says he expects an updated diagnosis later today. Adams was hurt in the Cowboys' 16-13 overtime win Sunday over the New York Giants. Peerless Price is an easy replacement for Crayton as the third receiver, and it means swapping a current quarterback Drew Bledsoe favorite for one of his past favorites. Price also will be a candidate to replace Crayton on punt returns, too, as are Terence Newman and Marion Barber. Replacing Adams is more difficult. Torrin Tucker had been limited to special teams the first five games before taking over in the second half Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys learned that offensive lineman Kurt Vollers can't be re-signed because he received an injury settlement when released in training camp. Parcells also says he won't know until tomorrow whether running back Julius Jones will return to practice. Jones missed Sunday's game because of a high ankle sprain.
