Attempting to win a crucial mid-season game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia is frightening enough without injuries; so when Andre Gurode, the three-time Pro Bowl center, went down in the first half, clutching an ankle and rocking back and forth in that all-too-familiar motion, it was a palpable scare for Cowboys fans.

Fortunately, a "scare" is all it was.

Three key Cowboys suffered minor nicks over the course of Sunday night's 20-16 victory but, according to ESPNDallas, none are considered serious.

Gurode suffered a sprained ankle, and was replaced by Cory Proctor, but returned after having his knee brace readjusted.

Felix Jones suffered a neck strain on a collision with the Eagles' Asante Samuel, on a play that resulted in injuries for both. Samuel also suffered a neck strain but returned after missing a few plays.

Mike Jenkins missed a few plays when he jammed a wrist.

For now, it appears that Dallas left the northeast unscathed, for all intents and purposes which, considering the physicality of this Eagles' team, is no small victory in itself.
