Cowboys ready for real tuneup vs. Houston

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Texas Stadium is the place to be tonight if you're a fan of NFL teams in Texas.

The Dallas Cowboys will host the Houston Texans, who've won both of their pre-season games.

The 0-2 Cowboys will finally put their primary players on extended display.

Coach Wade Phillips plans to play his starters into the second half, maybe even the entire third quarter.

Phillips says the starters will include Adam "Pacman" Jones at left corner.

Jones missed the 2007 season while serving an NFL suspension and has yet to be reinstated for the regular season.

The Texans also plan to play their starters for three quarters, including QB Matt Schaub.
