Cowboys S Barry Church suffered an Achilles tendon injury and is expected to undergo surgery on Tuesday.

“It’s either torn or partially torn, one of the two. I’ll find out tomorrow,” Church said, per the Cowboys’ website. “There’s no way, probably (to return this season). I’ll be watching.”

The Cowboys were without Gerald Sensabaugh, who has a calf injury, and finished the game with Danny McCray and Mana Silva as the team’s safeties.

Church started all three games this season. He had three tackles on Sunday before suffering the injury and had 28 tackles in 13 games last season.
