While they were able to defeat the Carolina Panthers
yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys lost a pair of starters, center Phil Costa and
linebacker Sean Lee, to injury, reports Brandon George of The Dallas Morning
News. Costa dislocated his right ankle and Lee sprained his right big toe.
Jerry Jones on Costa’s injury:
“He subluxed his ankle, which
kind of rolls it,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of Costa’s injury. “You think
of a subluxed shoulder, in and out [of the socket]. It could be something that
we look at hard, maybe a severe sprain. It’s not a high ankle sprain, so I’m
not ruling him out at all for anything and that’s about all I know about him.”
Costa was replaced by Ryan Cook yesterday, and his status
for next week’s game against the New York Giants is in doubt. He will undergo
an MRI today to determine the extent of the injury.
Lee will also undergo an examination on his right big toe,
but he told reporters following the game that he expects to be available
against the Giants.
