Cowboys lose Felix Jones, Austin to injury

It was a tough day for the Cowboys. Though they had a nice comeback in order to squeak by the 49ers in overtime for their first win of the season, they took a few bumps along the way.

You already know that quarterback Tony Romo fractured his rib early in the game before returning to help Dallas to victory, but now, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that running back Felix Jones has a separated shoulder and receiver Miles Austin has a pulled hamstring.

The injuries, for the team, could be devastating. Without Jones, the team won’t have its No. 1 running back, and without Austin -- who could be out until Dallas’ bye week in October -- the team will miss a big-play receiver who caught three touchdowns Sunday.

So, it was nice for Dallas to get the win today, but the cost might make it harder for the Cowboys to pile up more victories in the immediate future.

You're right Jaws8181...could be a long few weeks for the Cowboys. My biggest question now though is what happened to all the Romo haters? The message boards were full of 'em last week. Not one of the punks has the balls to come on now and say anything.

I'll start by saying that I am a Philly fan, that being said this is horrible news for Cowboys fans. I'm sure I'll get blasted for saying so but Romo gained some respect from me. Is there a solid #2 at RB. I would rather see Murry get the bulk of the carries as I'm not a big fan of Choice. I'm sure they'll split time and find a way to make it work. Bryant better get healthy quick or its going to be a rough stretch for the Boy's. Sorry to hear the news Cowboy's fans!
