NFL Injuries Week 7: Injuries Still Hurting the Cowboys

Another week in the NFL is in the books and although there aren’t some major injuries to report there are some notables injuries that could effect the outcome of some key matchups in week seven.

The Dallas Cowboys are arguably one of the most talented teams in the NFL today. Tony Romo is one of the best quarterbacks in the league when he is on his game, the Dallas backfield has three running backs that could easily start for any other team and the Cowboys defense can really put the breaks on the high powered offense on any given Sunday.

So with the Cowboys being one of the top teams in the NFC they should be looking forward to a Super Bowl contending season right? Well, they thought they would be, but their plans have hit a bump in the road as they have struggled with injuries to some of the top offensive threats like wide receiver Roy Williams and running backs Marion Barber and Felix Jones.

Here are the notable NFL injuries for week seven:

New York Jets: Jerricho Cotchery

It looks like one of Mark Sanchez’s favorite wide receiver targets will sit out again when the New York Jets take on the Oakland Raiders in week seven. This could potentially be huge once again for a Jets opponent as it has been obvious that Sanchez has struggled without his prime time targets.

Buffalo Bills: Trent Edwards, Terrell Owens

Edwards suffered a concussion last week against the New York Jets and it seems it was bad enough to keep him out of this week’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Along with Edwards it seems that troubled wide receiver Terrell Owens might also sit out, but not due to an injury which makes me think that TO might finally be expressing his discontent with his role on the team.

Dallas Cowboys: Roy Williams, Felix Jones, Marion Barber

It is uncertain as of right now that any of these Cowboys will sit out there NFC battle with the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but if they do take the field all three of these guys will be banged up and not even close to 100%. Williams is probable with a rib injury, Barber is probable with a quad and thumb injury and Jones is questionable with a knee injury, but it seems as though he is closer to 100% than either Williams or Barber.

Minnesota Vikings: Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin

A lot of Vikings fans held their breath last week when they saw Adrian Peterson go down with an ankle injury, but were able to exhale when they saw him come back on the field during the end of the game. Peterson fully participated in practice on Friday and will be good to go against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Harvin on the other hand is questionable with his shoulder injury, but I think he will still play because he has that Brett Favre kind of toughness and won’t want to miss a big game like this in week seven.

San Francisco 49ers: Frank Gore

Frank Gore isn’t just a huge part of the Niners this season, he is the entire offense and will be key if San Francisco expects to win in week seven against the Houston Texans. Right now Gore is listed as probable, but I guarantee he will be on the field this weekend.

Washington Redskins: Clinton Portis, Albert Haynesworth

The Redskins are awful this season, but they will be God awful if they don’t have Portis in the offense and Haynesworth on the defensive side of the football. Both players did not practice on Friday and are questionable for Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Gonzalez, Bob Sanders

Gonzalez will be sitting out another week, but defensive beast Bob Sanders will finally get on the gridiron for the Colts this weekend when Indianapolis takes on the lowly St. Louis Rams this weekend.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Troy Polamalu

It hasn’t exactly been a great year for the defending champs so far, but they have been without safety and arguably their best defensive player in Polamalu. This week the Steelers should have Polamalu back for the big game against the Minnesota Vikings.
