Cowboys lose LB Justin Durant for 3-4 weeks


The Dallas Cowboys linebacking corp continues to get hit hard with injuries and at the wrong time. Just one day after the team learned that star linebacker Sean Lee was going to miss three to four weeks with a hamstring injury, owner Jerry Jones announced that they would be another man down for up to a month.

Linebacker Justin Durant, who was set to see more playing time with Lee on the sidelines, is also set to miss three to four weeks with a hamstring issue of his own.

From Cowboys reporter Nick Eatman:

With Lee and Durant now done for awhile, the Cowboys will watch Ernie Sims and Kyle Bosworth leap into the starting line up.

The Cowboys don’t have much breathing room in the NFC East, but their next two games against the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders could give them the buffer that they need.
