Austin hurts hamstring again, Felix separates shoulder, Costa dings knee

The Cowboys are going to go into another week with injury questions.

Miles Austin aggravated a hamstring injury when he ran the ball on the failed third-down that forced the Cowboys to try a field goal to tie the game. He might miss next week’s game.

Running back Felix Jones suffered a separated shoulder early in the game and wore a harness the rest of the way.

Center Phil Costa suffered a knee injury and was replaced by rookie Kevin Kowalski. He missed time in the preseason with a knee injury.

“Just couldn’t run,” Austin said of the third-and-2 play, in which he lost two yards. “Went out there and kind of just slowed me down. Fumbled the ball, too. Shouldn’t have done that.”

Austin, who caught three touchdown passes, said he felt the hamstring been bothering him before that run.

“Hampered by it a little bit,” he said. “But that was the one where you kind of felt it the most.”

The Cowboys are hopeful cornerback Terence Newman will be ready to play next week’s Monday night game against the Washington Redskins.

merci pour l'information

I’ve recently started a blog, the information you provide on this site has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all of your time & work.

Jeanette, let's your boys enjoy next weeks game. We will worry and they'll be happy. How about you and I playing tackle in the back room while they watch the game so you'll be happy also?? Write back and let me know if you can be my tight end or wide receiver and I'll play QB and I'll go deep... Are you ready for some football...

For Years the NFL Dallas Cowboys have not been able to get 1 single solitary yard on 3rd and 1 or goal line to save their jobs for all of the 4 years Skip Peete has been in Dallas

Now you have the poor play by Felix and Choice

While you can't teach "Heart" or "Toughness" you also can't teach "Getting Results" or losing your job

This Team will go "NO-WHERE" in the Play Offs

That's Right "NO WHERE" if we can't run the ball

We need to Fire Skip Peete and bring in another Jimmy Robinson Type if Peet can't get this Rushing Game Sorted Out

Skip can save his Job by putting in one of the Rookies or getting a Veteran but status quo means fait accompli

Ticket Buying Fans all over the internet and social media are [ "ENRAGED" ] by the poor performances of Felix and Choice and Skip Peets inability to motivate or replace Felix and Choice

Make a Change or MOVE ON SKIP !!!!!


We need a healthy team, every NFL team is capable to win on any given Sunday. "How bout that Jesse Holly' gonna have to get use to that name........
