It’s a good thing Dallas pulled off a terrific comeback victory Sunday, because the news after the game wasn’t so good.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that running back Felix Jones has a separated shoulder. Wide receiver Miles Austin also pulled his hamstring again and the team fears he will be out through the team’s Week Five bye.

If Austin is out, the team needs Dez Bryant to get healthy fast. They also need DeMarco Murray and Tashard Choice to step up at running back.

After two road games to start the year, the Cowboys host the Redskins and Lions the next two weeks.
