(NEW YORK) — In a game that will decide which team will take sole possession of first place in the NFC East, the Cowboys will be without a couple of their best playmakers.
On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys will likely be without linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back DeMarco Murray against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Ware suffered a pulled quadriceps during the team’s 31-16 win against the Washington Redskins. While he not been officially ruled out by the team, he’s not expected to play.
“It wouldn’t be 100 percent if I had to go out and play right now,” Ware said. “There wouldn’t be a point to this day. If I had to play, I wouldn’t. I couldn’t get off the ball.”
Since entering the NFL in 2005, Ware has not missed a single game.
Meanwhile, Murray isn’t expected to play either after also injuring himself on Sunday. Murray reportedly is dealing with a sprained MCL in his left knee.
Murray has 428 rushing yards with three touchdowns so far this season. He missed nine games the previous two seasons with various injuries.
