Dallas’ wild, weird loss to the Jets looked even worse in the locker room after the game when injury news came out.
Starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick will miss 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury.
“We didn’t get a good enough shot on the X-ray,” owner Jerry Jones said via ESPNDallas.com. “It’s a high ankle. It’s a fracture. It’s something like that. Three or four weeks is what the doctors told me.”
The Cowboys were already thin at cornerback with Terence Newman hurt. Mike Jenkins was in and out of the lineup on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Dez Bryant was slowed in the second half because of a brusied quad suffered on a punt return. Jones wasn’t happy about how Bryant was hurt after the game.
“I’m just saying he’s getting hurt on returns,” Jones said. “He got knocked out last year and got limited in this game on a punt return.”
Bryant is clearly a sensational talent, but he still has to show he is durable. He said he enjoys being on returns.
“I love doing it,” said Bryant. “I just feel like things happen. I love it a lot. I feel like any moment, I can make a big splash on it. But, hey, it’s whatever Mr. Jones wants. If he don’t want me doing it, it’d be sad. I would love to continue doing it, but hey, he makes the calls.”
Most teams have a coach for that.
