Cowboys OLG Bill Nagy will miss the remainder of the season because of a broken ankle and RB Felix Jones could miss time, team owner Jerry Jones told reporters after Sunday's game.

Nagy, a rookie, missed time earlier in the season with a neck injury, but returned to start the past three games. He was injured in the fourth quarter of Dallas' loss to the Patriots in Week Six.

Felix Jones has a high ankle sprain, which he suffered in the first half of Sunday's loss. Jerry Jones said that his team's starting back will likely miss next week's game against the Rams.

The way we see it

Nagy was replaced by fellow rookie Kevin Kowalski, but it is difficult to imagine the Cowboys entering their Week Seven game being so thin up front. Expect the team to place Nagy on I.R. and sign a free-agent offensive lineman.

The Cowboys do have depth at running back, with Tashard Choice and rookie DeMarco Murray, who had 10 carries on Sunday.
