Dallas Cowboys Injury Report: Five Players Don't Practice

Gerald Sensabaugh was walking around in a boot on Monday and Tuesday after spraining his right foot against the Redskins, and did not participate in practice on both days. And while Sensabaugh said he plans on playing against Miami, Jason Garrett was a little more circumspect in his prognosis, so safety Barry Church, who got the first team reps in both practices, might get his first NFL start on Thursday.

The other four players who missed both practice days are Miles Austin (hamstring), Tony Fiammetta (undetermined illness), Mike Jenkins (hamstring) and Jon Kitna (back). It looks likely that all four will miss Thursday's game.

Felix Jones (ankle) and Kyle Kosier were listed as 'limited in practice' but it appears both will play against the Dolphins.

Fiammetta's injury situation is more than a little troubling. The Cowboys are now even looking into Fiammetta's family history to try to figure out what is wrong with him. Fiammetta is unable to practice or lift weights due to dizziness and nausea and what have been described as 'concussion-like symptoms', yet the Cowboys cannot pinpoint any specific play in which Fiammetta might have suffered such a concussion.

Asked the origin of the illness, Garrett said the doctors and trainers were stumped. He said the team's entire medical staff as well as specialists have been consulted.

"We are just evaluating the origin of the illness - without getting into too many details about what the different possibilities," Garrett said. "We are just trying to look at it and see why he is feeling sick...just trying to get to the bottom of it."

Fact is, if the Cowboys cannot even diagnose his illness after a week, he's out against the Dolphins, and possibly much longer.
