Terrell Owens: Cowboys' wide receiver is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC playoff game with the New York Giants.

IRVING, Texas --- Terrell Owens warmed up for practice Friday, then went to see a trainer about his injured ankle.


Problem? Nope, quite the opposite.

Owens felt so good he wanted the protective tape he'd been wearing cut off. Then he ran to join his teammates who were lined up to stretch, slapping hands and practically doing a victory lap on his way to his spot, complete with waving his right index finger.

"I'm good," Owens said later, at his locker. "See you Sunday."

TEXANS : Kyle Shanahan was promoted to offensive coordinator, making him the youngest coach at that position in the NFL.

The 28-year-old son of Denver coach Mike Shanahan replaces Mike Sherman , who spent two seasons with the Texans before being named the head coach at Texas A&M in late November.

BROWNS: Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham , once considered a possible successor to coach Romeo Crennel , was fired after Cleveland finished the season with one of the league's worst defenses.

Grantham's dismissal was a surprise, coming just months after the fiery 41-year-old signed a two-year contract extension.

BRONCOS: Tight end Daniel Graham was arrested Friday on a charge of harassing his former girlfriend, who said the player hit a bedpost after an argument about the sale of their home.

Graham was arrested on suspicion of criminal mischief and harassment and released on a personal recognizance bond.

TAYLOR DEATH: Prosecutors began releasing evidence in the investigation into the slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, including signed statements by all four suspects waiving their rights to remain silent.
