Cowboys Safety injures knee in practice unlikely to play against Lions

This is not the news the Cowboys need this week when going in to face Megatron.

Rookie J.J. Wilcox suffered a knee injury in Thursday’s practice and will undergo an MRI later in the afternoon. The Cowboys are fearing a possible MCL sprain but at this point, before the test results, it doesn’t appear to be a season-ending injury. The injury occurred in the red-zone drills when he battled tight end Gavin Escobar for a ball in the end zone and came down awkwardly on his knee per Cowboys website.

A third-round pick from Georgia Southern, Wilcox has been improving each week, and made a key play in last week’s game against the Eagles when he deflected away what appeared to be a touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson.
