Jabril Cox Left Minnesota on Crutches, MRI on Monday

LB hobbled out of U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on crutches following Sunday night's electric win against the Vikings, according to Michael Gehlken.

The rookie was carted from the sideline to the locker room after suffering a right knee sprain during a Minnesota punt. He has an MRI scheduled for Monday in Dallas.

Cox has primarily been used as a piece for the -leading Cowboys, but has seen an increase in defensive snaps since the team's of former starter .

The fourth-round pick from LSU had fans excited to see more of him after a big hit on in week 5.

If Cox is out for an extended period of time, the Cowboys may not be in big trouble. They may be thin-stretched, however, as the linebacking unit will have one less man to substitute in, and Cox's promising rookie season may be upended for a couple weeks.
