Injury report: Kenyon Coleman needs MRI
By Calvin Watkins
PHILADELPHIA -- There's good news and bad news coming from the Cowboys locker room Sunday night regarding the health of the team.
Starting defensive end Kenyon Coleman hurt his triceps in the third quarter of the 38-23 victory over the Eagles and didn't return. Coleman said he will undergo an MRI on Monday.
"I can lift my arm," Coleman said. "But I can't play football."
The good news is that starting running back DeMarco Murray, who has missed the last four games with a sprained foot, said he is hoping he can return for the Cleveland game next Sunday.
Murray thought he had a chance to play against the Eagles, but he still hasn't passed flexibility and strength tests to get cleared to play.
"It's a possibility," Murray said of playing against the Browns. "I'm hoping. We'll see. I need to pass these tests."
With Murray out Sunday, the Cowboys rushed for 101 yards, the third time they've surpasses 100 yards this season. Felix Jones carried 16 times for 71 yards to lead the rushing attack.
"I just want to play," Murray said, when asked about watching the last four games. "It's so hard (not playing). But when you win, it's easy. Now you got a break."
Cornerback Mike Jenkins, who missed practice the last two days with back spasms, tried to get warmed up before the game but couldn't show enough to play. Jenkins said an MRI didn't show any structural damage.
