Cowboys Injury Update: Mike Jenkins Likely To Miss Time

New, comments

Not only did the Dallas Cowboys get humiliated by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, they also came out of the game with some key injuries. The defensive unit was the hardest hit by injury, with a couple of starters in serious danger of missing time.

ESPN Dallas reports that starting cornerback Mike Jenkins could miss up to a month with a hamstring injury. That's a familiar refrain this season - cornerbacks missing time due to injury. Jenkins provided a 3-4 week estimate on his own, which is usually a bad sign that it will come to fruition. The mothership has Jenkins initially saying 2-3 weeks, but whatever the estimate, it looks like Orlando Scandrick will be starting opposite Terence Newman for the next few games, with Alan Ball and Frank Walker likely to see a lot of playing time.

Chuck Norris Sean Lee will likely miss the Seattle game, at a minimum, with a dislocated wrist. Lee says he won't  have surgery but will try to play with a cast. This is very worrisome considering how the Eagles blistered the middle of the Cowboys defense with runs and pass patterns. Bruce Carter is an option to help out Bradie James and Keith Brooking, but he needs to get familiar with the defensive schemes.

Punter Mat McBriar is suffering with nerve damage in his non-kicking foot, and had to be pulled from the Eagles game. Chris Jones was signed to the practice squad and might be taking over the punting duties.
