Last night’s 20-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers was bittersweet for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys went into the game with numerous injuries already, including those to Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode, free safety Pat Watkins, and running back Tyson Thompson.
Additionally the team had Tony Romo, Chris Canty and Sal Fasano who were each recovering from injuries sustained in the loss against the Eagles the week prior.
In yesterday’s contest, All Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens suffered a high ankle sprain that could force him to miss considerable time. The recovery time for these types of injuries is usually 3-4 weeks which could put T.O. at risk for missing the first playoff game.
The team isn’t saying much right now, but they are clearly concerned and have Owens scheduled for an MRI later today. X-rays that were taken last night were negative which means that there is no breaks or fractures. Keep checking back as Lone Star Struck will monitor the situation closely and update his status as we receive more information.
On another note…
Roy Williams was informed that his next horse collar tackle WILL result in a multi-game suspension lasting 2-3 games or possibly longer. Unless Roy Williams is willing to change his tactics, relying on him as a key player may prove to be a bad decision by the organization. Some already feel that Williams may never be able to adapt and that he is already hurting the team with his numerous penalties.
