Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar to have MRI today


The Dallas Cowboys were able to come away from their traditional Thanksgiving Day match up with the win on Thursday afternoon, by taking down the Oakland Raiders thanks to a strong second-half performance.

Dallas was able to get a strong performance by running backs DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar, before Dunbar suffered a knee injury that will require an MRI today. According to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, the MRI will be conducted today, as the team waits to find out the full extent of the injury.

“It’s feeling better right now,” Dunbar told reporters after the game. “We’ll see tomorrow. They think I hyper-extended it but we’re going to look at it tomorrow and see.

“I’m pretty tough. I’ll fight through it.”

Dunbar finished the game with 82 yards on 12 carries, while DeMarco Murray had 17 carries for 63 yards and three touchdowns.

Hopefully Dunbar will not miss much time. As far as the team’s owner Jerry Jones is concerned, he won’t.

“It could be a week or so on that,” Jones said. “He’s in great spirits. Here’s Dr. Jones, but it’s probably just a little bone on bone bruise type thing.”
