Injuries a concern for Cowboys

The big injuries are piling up in the Big D.

Not only did quarterback Tony Romo fracture the pinkie on his throwing hand, sidelining him four to five weeks, but the Cowboys also incurred a number of other key injuries.

Wide receiver Sam Hurd suffered a high ankle sprain that will require surgery; no estimate on how long he will be out. Rookie running back Felix Jones will undergo an MRI on his strained hamstring. These are the most notable injuries, but there were others. Not a good Sunday in the desert for the Cowboys.

And now comes the most challenging part — trying to get by with Brad Johnson playing quarterback.

“We have complete confidence in him,” said Cowboys coach Wade Phillips. “Our team will rally around him. Everyone is going to do their job and do it the best they can. That’s what’s going to happen.”
