Cowboys Injury Update: FB Tony Fiammetta Ruled Out Of Redskins Game

New, comments

Well, I guess we'll get the opportunity to see if DeMarco Murray is a one-man gang after all. The Cowboys dramatic improvement in the running game has occurred with the insertion of three key components that differed from the early season attack. Murray was forced into the lineup after the high-ankle sprain suffered by former lead runner Felix Jones. A season-ending injury to rookie left guard Bill Nagy brought the return of Montrae Holland. Maybe just as important was the insertion of free agent fullback Tony Fiammetta into the starting lineup. He has been a bulldozer of a lead blocker, paving the way for several of Murray's long gains. Now, according to the Star Telegram, Dallas will have to face the Redskins on Sunday without him due to an unknown illness. No other details were available, let us hope that this is just a temporary illness.
