Injury report: John Phillips hurts ankle
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Tight end John Phillips was added to the injury report with an ankle injury that limited him in Thursday’s practice.
Fullback Lawrence Vickers was limited Thursday because of a knee injury that kept him out of Wednesday’s practice, but cornerback Mike Jenkins (back) and center Ryan Cook (knee) missed their second straight day of work.
If Cook cannot play Sunday vs. Cleveland, then Mackenzy Bernadeau would make his first career start at center. Jenkins has not practiced since Nov. 7.
Running back DeMarco Murray did not practice and went through his second day of on-field rehab work. Murray has missed the last four games with a sprained foot. He was joined by defensive end Sean Lissemore (ankle) for the first time on the field. Lissemore said he was feeling better but was not sure when he would return to practice.
Linebacker Dan Connor (neck) took part in his second straight full practice after missing the last two games. Nose tackle Jay Ratliff was also a full participant with an ankle injury. Safety Matt Johnson (hamstring) and center Phil Costa (ankle) did not practice.
Practice squad wide receiver Danny Coale suffered a possible torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during special teams drills Thursday. He was undergoing an MRI today. Coale’s rookie season started poorly when he suffered a stress fracture in his foot in May that kept him out through most of training camp. He also had a hamstring issue.
