Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett was placed on the non-football injury list prior to the first practice of training camp on Saturday.

Bennett injured his left ankle running routes last week at the team's Valley Ranch training facility. Cowboys officials said that the ankle has some swelling and Bennett was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

"He'll be back quick," owner/general manager Jerry Jones told ESPNDallas.com following Saturday's practice. "It's not serious."

Coach Wade Phillips said he was working out in the weight room as Bennett was injured on the practice field.

Rookie safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (shoulder) was also placed on the NFI list.

Lorenzo Washington, a defensive end, was placed on the physically unable to perform list with a hamstring injury. He joins Stephen Hodge (knee), who isn't expected to practice for a while.

The Cowboys also missed backup wide receiver Sam Hurd, who's wife had a baby Friday. Hurd is expected to arrive for Sunday's practices.
