Dallas Cowboys fear Lance Dunbar has season-ending injury

Nov 28, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar (25) runs the ball in the third quarter against the Oakland Raiders during a NFL football game on Thanksgiving at AT

The Dallas Cowboys were able to bounce back with a strong second half performance against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday afternoon to come away with a big win on Thanksgiving. Dallas was led by a strong one-two punch in the running game with running backs DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar, but they lost one of the backs at the end of the game.

Dunbar went down with a knee injury after an awkward low hit in the backfield and he was set for an MRI on Friday.

After initially believing that Dunbar would miss limited time with a hyper extended knee, the team is now fearing a serious knee injury for Dunbar that could end his season.

From Ed Werder of ESPN:

Dallas can still hold out some hope, but it is not looking good.

Dunbar is a very talented back that eventually could push Murray for the starting spot, but for now it looks like he will land on the IR and the Cowboys successful one-two punch will have come to an abrupt end.

    Dunbar out for the season. Definitely Sux for him, Kid showed flashes yesterday. Time for Randle or Tanner to step up & give us some production behind Murray.
    Hope he comes back healthy & ready for 2014.
