Injuries

Marvin Austin’s Cowboys career ends after one game

Marvin AustinAP
Things have gotten so ridiculous for the Cowboys defensive line this year that even the injury replacements need injury replacements now.

The Cowboys waived-injured Marvin Austin Tuesday because of a back injury that would have kept him out a few weeks, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com

Austin, a former second-round pick of the Giants, played one game for the Cowboys. He was inactive Sunday against the Vikings after he coudn’t finish last Friday’s practice, and had an MRI Monday.

That leaves a vacant roster spot they’ll probably have to use on another defensive tackle, since they have just three on the roster and two of them are hurt. Jason Hatcher is dealing with a stinger and Nick Hayden has a back issue.

Drake Nevis, the other one, is presently buying more insurance.

NFL AM says the Giants are a real threat, their schedule favors them to make a run. But we have history on our side, only one team ever started 2-6 and made the playoffs. It was the 1972 Bengals

HALTOM CITY — Lance Dunbar couldn’t even enjoy the best game of his fledgling career. The Cowboys running back spent the night on the couch in pain following a strong performance Thursday in Dallas’ 31-24 victory over Oakland on Thursday.

Then he learned Friday morning, following an MRI exam, that he wouldn’t be able to play the rest of the season because he’ll have to undergo surgery to repair damage in the posterolateral corner of his left knee. The injury, which occurred with less than six minutes left in regulation when Dunbar was tackled for a five-yard loss, initially wasn’t believed to be severe. The medical staff had originally diagnosed it as a hyperextension, according to the running back and owner Jerry Jones.

“It’s a tough pill to swallow right now,” Dunbar said. “I’m hurting right now. But eventually I’ll get over it.”

The Cowboys, meanwhile, will forge ahead with starter DeMarco Murray and reserve running backs Joseph Randle and Philip Tanner. As they dealt with the bad news, Dunbar sucked it up and showed up for an autograph session at Sam’s Furniture & Appliance in Haltom City — the town he and his family moved to in wake of Hurricane Katrina. Locals turned out to see the North Texas product who gained 82 yards on 12 carries against the Raiders, wowing the crowd with a 45-yard run in the third quarter that offered a glimpse of his natural talents.

“I’ve been knowing he can do it,” said his mother, Patricia Jones. “I told him to be patient and it will happen.”

It did. But then so did his latest setback. Dunbar, who missed three games earlier this season after suffering a sprained left foot and then a strained right hamstring, has struggled to stay on the field as he has pushed for playing time.

“He wasn’t healthy there for a stretch,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “But we came out of training camp thinking he could be a big part of what we were doing.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in particular, was intrigued by Dunbar’s quickness and agility. He envisioned him as a potential playmaker even though he has gained 317 yards from scrimmage since his career began. On Sunday, he showed why Jones had invested so much faith in him, rushing for 78 yards during the third quarter when the Cowboys wrested all of the momentum from the Raiders.

“That’s what I have been doing in practice,” the second-year veteran said. “The same thing I’ve been doing in practice I do in the game. Just the fact everybody else got to see on that level….”

Dunbar paused.

“I can’t do nothing about it,” he continued. “I can’t hold my head down.”

But it was easy to see Friday that Dunbar was disappointed after learning he won’t be able to author a 2013 encore following his breakout performance Thursday.
