Witten also has sprained knee, undergoes MRI

It was not all good news for the Cowboys coming out of the 27-13 victory against the Texans on Sunday.

The Cowboys got the first win of the season. But they may have lost guard Kyle Kosier and tight end Jason Witten. Both suffered sprained knees against the Texans and underment magnetic resonance imaging exams on Monday.

The results of the tests have yet to be revealed.

Kosier's injury was known during the game as he was helped from the field and replaced by Montrae Holland.

However, Witten played the entire game after spraining his right knee in the first half. I ran into him as he limped around the corner going to get the MRI on Monday morning.

He didn't think or at least hoped it wasn't too serious and believed the bye week this Sunday came at a fortunate time. It will be two weeks before the Cowboys have to play another game.

Depending on the severity of the sprain, that might not be enough time. It could be either a 2-4 week recovery or 4-6 week. We will know soon enough.
