ARLINGTON, Texas -- DeMarcus Ware could miss a game for the first time in his eight-year career.

DeMarco Murray isn't saying.

The star pass rusher and starting running back for the Dallas Cowboys both were injured in Sunday's 31-16 win over Washington.

Ware went out in the first quarter with a strained right quadriceps muscle. Murray exited in the second quarter with an MCL sprain in his left knee.

Their health is likely to go a long way toward determining whether the Cowboys end a three-year playoff drought.

It won't help that the first game after the injuries is Sunday in Philadelphia. The Cowboys and Eagles are tied for the NFC East lead at 3-3.
