Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar was having a great day. Then, after going for 82 yards on 12 carries, he hyperextended his left knee. Dunbar said after the Thanksgiving Day victory that he’d have an MRI on Friday.
“It’s feeling better right now,” Dunbar said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We’ll see tomorrow. ... They think I hyper-extended it but we’re going to look at it tomorrow and see. ... I’m pretty tough. I’ll fight through it.”
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who took in Dunbar’s performance from his suite on Thursday, left AT&T Stadium optimistic about Dunbar’s status going forward.
“It could be a week or so on that,” Jones said. “He’s in great spirits. Here’s Dr. Jones, but it’s probably just a little bone on bone bruise type thing.”
