The MRIs on the Cowboys' pair of Pro Bowlers injured in yesterday's win over the Seahawks didn't reveal any surprises.
OLB DeMarcus Ware didn't sustain any structural damage to his left knee. He hyperextended the knee and suffered a bone bruise, but he expects to play a week from Sunday in Pittsburgh.
RB Marion Barber has a dislocated pinkie toe on his right foot. There is no fracture.
They're both considered day-to-day at this point, which means we'll have daily updates on whether they practice, how much they practice, etc. all next week. They'll spend a lot of their weekend at Valley Ranch getting treatment.
What a big relief. I don't fully trust initial team diagnoses or player self-diagnoses, but after the feeling in the pit of my stomach watching Ware go down yesterday, this is a big relief for both players, and we may have missed a couple bullets. Pray for quick healing and both of them back to lay a hurtin' on Pittsburg.
