Mike Jenkins Injury: Dallas Cowboys' Cornerback To Miss 3-4 Weeks, According To Report

The Dallas Cowboys will be without the services of former Pro-Bowl cornerback Mike Jenkins for 3-4 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.

First the Philadelphia Eagles embarrass the Dallas Cowboys in front of a national audience on Sunday Night Football, then injuries decide to decimate the depth chart of Cowboys' head coach Jason Garrett.

On Monday, a source indicated that former Pro Bowl cornerback Mike Jenkins will miss three to four weeks with a hamstring injury. After Sunday's game versus the Eagles, the cornerback told reporters that he thought he'd be able to play in this Sunday's contest versus Seattle. Jenkins originally suffered the hamstring injury in the fourth quarter, but re-entered the game in the fourth before ultimately getting pulled.

More news coming out of Dallas, as starting inside linebacker Sean Lee will attempt to play versus Seattle on Sunday after dislocating his wrist while attempting to tackle Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick in the first quarter. Lee is the Cowboys' leading tackler, and it remains to be seen if Bradie James and Keith Brooking can step in and perform to the high level that Lee had so far this season.
