Not every development to emerge from the Cowboys’ resounding 27-13 victory over Houston was a good one for the Cowboys. Left guard Kyle Kosier, who many consider to be the leader of the unit, came away from the game with a sprained left knee which, according to Jan Hubbard of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, may keep him out for up to four weeks. According to Kosier himself, however, he won’t be forced to miss any time.
Kosier, unfortunately, wasn’t the only one. Tight end Jason Witten suffered a similar injury, though less severe, and could be in question for the team’s next game, and October 10 date with the Tennessee Titans. Witten suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday’s victory but did not leave the game.
Both players will have MRIs today, and may be helped by the timing of the Cowboys’ bye week. If Kosier is unable to play against Tennessee, he will be replaced by Montrae Holland, who replaced him at left guard in week one against Washington.
