Key linemen go down in Cowboys-Eagles game

It’s early in Sunday night’s battle for NFC East supremacy, but we can guarantee the Eagles won’t win this one 44-6.

We can also guarantee there are a lot of nervous folks in both organizations after injuries to key offensive linemen during the first half.

Eagles starting left tackle Jason Peters went to the locker room to undergo x-rays on his ankle.  Peters was writhing on the ground after the injury.

The Cowboys also lost a Pro Bowl lineman — center Andre Gurode has left the game with an undisclosed injury.  As ESPN’s Chris Mortensen points out, Gurode is arguably the team’s best lineman and would be a major loss.  We’ll update his status later in the night.

The Cowboys are leading 7-3 in a game that has featured a lot of pressure on both quarterbacks.

UPDATE: Peters amazingly is back in the game.  Gurode is probable to return.  So, um, ignore the paragraphs above.  And discuss the game in the comments below.

    Don’t worry Dallas fans. I’m sure whoever is the backup to Gurode, will look like a pro bowler next week against my team. You have nothing to worry about short term.
