Ware, Murray will both have MRIs


The Cowboys beat the Redskins 31-16 on Sunday night to move to 3-3 on the year, but they lost a couple of starters on the way to the winner’s circle.

Running back DeMarco Murray and defensive end DeMarcus Ware both left early with injuries, making it a bad night indeed for those whose names have “DeMarc” as the first six letters.

Murray has been diagnosed with a sprained left MCL and will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury. After the game, quarterback Tony Romo said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, “that’s going to be a tough loss” although there’s been nothing from the team about how long they expect Murray to be out. If Murray does miss a game or more, it will be the third time in three NFL seasons that he is forced out of the lineup by injury.

The Cowboys are calling Ware’s injury a strained right quad and he’ll also make a visit to the MRI machine on Monday. Ware, who has never missed a game, said after the game that he’s “good” but, again, the tests on Monday will give a clearer picture of his availability this week.

  1. Ware is banged up year in and year out, Wear and tear on his body is taking its toll, Time to draft his replacement!

  2. Demarcus Ware hasn’t missed a single game in his entire 134 game career and he’s only 31. Get a grip.

  3. Without Murray cowboys are done. They have to have the running game to help that passing offense!!! Hope it isn’t too bad and he isn’t out very long.

  4. Ware is just getting old. Sorry but it’s true. On the play he was injured, no one caused the injury as it happened during no contact. He was just running up the field.

    And Murray can’t get through a season to save him.

    Jerry hangs on to these types too long year after year. MOVE ON.

  5. hey “dallascowboysdishingthereal” what exactly should the Cowboys do with Murray? Should they just cut him? He is still young & very good when healthy! I am not sure how you feel the Cowboys should go about handling that? Cut him? Really? Ware has been banged up the last two years & with him getting older, it isn’t helping, but should they cut him too? A future HOF’er? Other than those two, who else are you refering to? You said Jerry hangs on to these types too long year after year, meaning these two guys are not the only players who Jerry has done this with!

  6. Murray when healthy is a big improvement to our offense. He IS the running game. You notice it falls off pretty far after him and forces Romo to throw 40+ times a game. I think everyone saw this injury coming…again. We need to find a compliment to him, just as good that can split carries, similar to how Houston uses Tate and Foster or Pierce and Rice in Baltimore. I guess we will find out what Randle is made of for the next few weeks.
