EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman and tight end Martellus Bennett were listed as inactive, as expected, for the season opener against the New York Jets.

Newman injured his groin early in training camp, while Bennett will miss the game Sunday night with an ankle injury. Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins (knee) and rookie right tackle Tyron Smith (knee) are both active after being listed as questionable Friday.

Jets defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis, the team’s third-round draft pick, was among New York’s inactives. Former Cowboys safety Andrew Sendejo, recently claimed off waivers, was also inactive for the Jets.
