The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the San Francisco 49ers, 27-24, in overtime to move their record to 1-1 on the season going into next Monday's showdown against the Washington Redskins. However, they suffered some major injuries in the win. Tony Romo, Felix Jones and Miles Austin all suffered injuries during the game, and their status is uncertain for next Monday. Romo re-entered to lead the comeback, so we'll see about him.
The most serious of the injuries appears to be the one suffered by Jones. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Jones suffered a separated shoulder, which would certainly keep him out for some time. Austin, meanwhile, pulled his hamstring at the end of the game after scoring three touchdowns. Fellow wide receiver Dez Bryant didn't play on Sunday with a quad injury, so the Cowboys could be incredibly shorthanded.
Romo, meanwhile, suffered a rib injury and had to leave the game. Some reports indicated it was a broken rib, but it apparently wasn't enough to keep Romo sidelined in that game. Nevertheless, the Redskins will surely be catching a banged-up Cowboys team next Monday.
Vick was holding the ball to make a pass in the pocket when he was hit by a Falcons player. He fell hard into his offensive lineman and laid on the ground. As he staggered to get up, he spit out blood onto the ground.
Vick also pointed to the scoreboard when Falcons fans booed him, which proved to be a bad omen. At the time, the Eagles were leading, 31-21. But afterwards, Matt Ryan and the Falcons rallied, scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a run by Michael Turner. Mike Kafka replaced Vick and didn't look that bad, but his fourth-down pass inside of two minutes was dropped by Jeremy Maclin to end the game.
It remains unclear just how long Vick is sidelined, but no matter what happens, the Eagles will be weakened going forward.
