No extensive damage found in MRIs of Cowboys' Ware, Barber
IRVING, Texas -- MRI tests on injured Dallas linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back Marion Barber revealed no significant damage a day after both were injured in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day win over Seattle.
An MRI exam on Ware's hyperextended left knee showed no ligament damage Friday. An MRI exam on Barber's right pinkie toe, which was dislocated, revealed no fracture.
Both players will receive treatment throughout the weekend. They will be evaluated daily next week.
Ware had three sacks, taking over the NFL lead with 15, before he sprained his left knee late in the third quarter Thursday.
Barber was hurt late in the first half, went to the locker room, came back after the break, but ran only one more time.
