Dallas Cowboys starting cornerback Terence Newman and starting wide receiver Dez Bryant both missed practice again Thursday with injuries. Owner Jerry Jones said Newman has been officially ruled out of Sunday’s contest at San Francisco, but Bryant is expected to play.

Newman hasn’t practiced since Aug. 3 because a pulled groin muscle he suffered during training camp. According to the team he’s picked up his rehab work on the sidelines at practice, but he’s still not close enough to 100 percent healthy to play.

Team Owner Jerry Jones said it’s the team’s decision for Newman not to play against the 49ers, and not Newman’s choice. Jones also said he expects second-year wide receiver Dez Bryant to be on the field come Sunday.

Bryant’s been battling a thigh contusion he suffered during a 12-yard punt return in the first quarter of the Cowboys’ 27-24 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

Bryant made three receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Jets, but his pro career he’s dealt with numerous setbacks. During his rookie season, he suffered ankle, hamstring, rib and hip injuries before suffering a fractured right fibula last December that ended his first NFL season prematurely.
