IRVING, Texas – On Sunday, the Cowboys used their defense to find the end zone, not once but twice in a much-needed win over the Eagles.
But on Monday, they learned that another defensive starter is likely out for the season.
The Cowboys used a combination of both veteran
Before Sunday’s game with the Eagles, Coleman ranked 11th on the defense with 21 tackles and he was credited with one tackle on the stat sheet before his injury.
The injury also wipes out a reunion game for Coleman, who played two seasons with the Browns from 2009-10 when Rob Ryan was defensive coordinator in Cleveland. Coleman signed with the Cowboys for the second time before the 2011 season to reunite with Ryan.
Coleman played for the Cowboys from 2003-06, but was more of a role player, starting only five games in those four seasons when Bill Parcells was the head coach. He went to the Jets in 2007 and started 71 games in five seasons, along with five starts this season.
