The Dallas Cowboys have a very delicate secondary that has blown games before. Injuries and just inconsistent play has hampered the Cowboys for almost a decade.
So, the news that rookie cornerback Mike Jenkins has injured his hamstring could become a serious problem for the Cowboys. Jenkins will get an MRI today, so there should be some indication if his injury is bad enough for him to miss this coming game against the Seattle Seahawks–a game for which the Cowboys have just three days to prepare.
Terence Newman did play, but he has a groin injury he’s fighting. Safety Ken Hamlin gave up several big plays against the 49ers, and although cornerback Anthony Henry did have an interception and a few decent redzone plays, he was inconsistent on the field.
Any injury to the secondary from here on out can result in serious problems for the Cowboys.
