Cowboys starting right guard Kyle Kosier won't need surgery to repair a torn left MCL, just rest to repair the injury.

Kosier suffered the injury n the third quarter of the regular-season finale at the New York Giants. He said he knew the MCL was torn in the third quarter but tried to play through it.

Kosier said he's suffered a torn MCL before, in his right knee.

Cowboys medical officials are thinking starting cornerback Mike Jenkins will need surgery on his shoulder separated several times during the season. He re-injured the shoulder against the Giants.

Jenkins said he's hoping he doesn't need surgery.

He had problems with the shoulder all season, so much so that he had problems lifting his arm above his head. He grimaced while putting on a suit jacket after the Cowboys' loss to the Giants.
