The Cowboys’ Pacman Jones is still riding out his most recent suspension, but NFL Kommizzioner Roger Goodell could theoretically reinstate him this week.  But let’s be realistic: he won’t.  And Dallas coach Wade Phillips knows the score:

Phillips said that he doesn’t know anything about the possibility of Pacman’s indefinite suspension ending.  “I really don’t know,” Phillips said. “When he’s gone, he’s gone. We don’t really think about it. We’re preparing the guys that I have.”

Would Phillips want Pacman back if the commissioner clears him to play?  “Yeah,” he said. “Sure.”

There you go.  A ringing endorsement from the coach who’s trying to keep his team afloat in a crowded playoff picture. “Do you want your Pro Bowl-caliber cornerback to return?”  “Whatever, I guess.”
