Cowboys Injury Update: Sprained MCL Likely For Tyrone Crawford, Rolando McClain Injury 'Not Serious'

New, comments

Besides the loss on Sunday, the Cowboys face other issues.

Of course the big injury for Dallas is the one to Tony Romo and his transverse processes. We're not sure if he'll play next week, but the Cowboys are hopeful and he's definitely travelling to London with the team. After joking about bumping his wife to coach to give Romo one of the first class seats, Jerry Jones said they are taking him expecting him to play.

"The proof of the pudding is we certainly wouldn't put him on that plane and take him to London and fly over and fly back if we weren't planning on him playing,'' Jones said.

More immediate are the injuries that occurred on Sunday. Rolando McClain went out of the game late with a knee injury. Luckily, that one looks like it is minor.

McClain declined to comment leaving the locker room. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said X-rays came back negative. "It’s not showing anything structural at all, and he felt pretty good about it," Jones said. "I visited with him briefly back here a few minutes ago and he feels pretty good about it. Right now I’m not concerned about it."

Hopefully they still aren't concerned about it tomorrow. The bigger problem is defensive tackle Tyrone Crawfordhis knee injury may be a little more serious.

The Dallas Cowboys are more concerned with Crawford’s injury, owner Jerry Jones said, than linebacker Rolando McClain’s right knee injury that came earlier in the same defensive series. Jones said X-rays showed that [Crawford] has a strained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

"To what degree, it’s hard to tell," Jones added. "Probably Crawford has a little more to be concerned about. We’ll take a look at that as we go."

It would be a tough blow to lose Crawford. In one piece of good news, Ron Leary says he'll be back this week.

Leary warmed up before the game and said that sitting out Sunday was a "coaches’ and trainers’ decision." But Leary said he will practice Wednesday with the team in London and anticipates playing Sunday against Jacksonville.
