    G Connor McGovern, S Jayron Kearse Also Injured in SNF Debacle

    's hand is getting all the attention today but QB1 wasn't the only starter knocked out of action last night. Connor McGovern and Safety Jayron Kearse both left the game and could miss more time as the to press on in this already difficult season.

    McGovern injured his ankle early in the game, leading to Matt Farniok being inserted. Reports have it as a high ankle sprain that could take him out for at least a few games, but it's an injury that has been known to cost players 4-6 weeks in the past.

    While Farniok was the next man up last night, Dallas could change plans once OT Jason Peters is ready to go. In the interest of fielding their best five linemen, the Cowboys could move Tyler Smith back to the LG position he was preparing to play all and start Peters at left .

    If the losses on weren't bad enough, Kearse's exit robs Dallas' of a leader and one of its best playmakers from last year. Jayron exited with a knee injury last night and the extent of the damage is not yet known.

    Donovan Wilson will be a full-time starter now along with . This should lead to more playing time for Israel Mukuamu or , both of whom were inactive for .

    While the ugly loss and the Prescott injury are the major storylines coming out of last night, losing McGovern and Kearse certainly doesn't help matters. The Cowboys are starting this season about as poorly as we could have imagined.

    Jerry Jones the hand specialist thinks he can say Prescott won’t miss this many games or that many games! This whole organization is a joke! League laughing stocks again! All because the two dumbbells running or ruining the franchise won’t accept their limitations. Hire a General Manager, and then both of them stay the hell out of the way! Go sir on your luxury boxes and eat nachos and drink beer or something. Leave football to those who know. Allow a new GM to hire a Head coach, and then allow that coach to assemble his own staff. Kellen Moore’s incompetence is killing this Offense. Mike McCarthy’s lack of awareness creates unnecessary chaos and confusion. The team would instantly improve if they both were FIRED TODAY!!!
