And now for a tiny dose of good news out of Dallas.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that further testing on Anthony Hitchens revealed zero ligament damage to the linebacker's damaged knee, per a source informed of the injury.
That means no surgery for Hitchens, but the key Cowboys defender is still expected to be shelved for at least eight weeks, Rapoport was told.
Hitchens suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee during Saturday's preseason clash with the Oakland Raiders. His medical timeline makes the fourth-year defender a solid candidate for injured-reserve recall.
