o replace the injured Greg Olsen.The three-time Pro Bowl tight end injured his right foot in the first half of Carolina's 16-8 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and spent the second half looking on from the sideline on crutches with his foot in a boot. It's the same foot Olsen fractured in Week 2 last year. That injury kept him out of nine games and ended his streak of three straight 1 Womens Sean Lee Jersey ,000-yard seasons.Olsen was not available for comment after the game and coach Ron Rivera said he didn't know the extent of the injury.Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said the team should know more on Monday, but Olsen's teammates made it sound like the 33-year-old won't be returning anytime soon.Panthers center Ryan Kalil said Olsen was "pretty upset" after the game."I feel bad for him," Kalil said. "He works incredibly hard, he cares a vast amount. He does a nice job, and he was out doing his job for his team, and it breaks my heart for him. Hopefully he gets some good news."The Panthers will likely turn to rookie Ian Thomas as their starting tight end, although Cam Newton suggested the front office might need to make a roster move to add a tight end."You guys know how I feel about Greg, you can't ever replace him, his professionalism that he brings to the game, his overall outlook, his IQ, his understanding," Newton said.If history is any indication, running back Christian McCaffrey will see more balls thrown his way with Olsen out. McCaffrey was used as Newton's safety valve last season and finished with a franchise rookie record 80 receptions.The Panthers also lost right tackle Daryl Williams to a knee injury, although the severity is not known.Things we learned from Carolina's win over Dallas:KICKING TALK: Cowboys fans still angry about the team's decision to release Dan Bailey, the NFL's second-most accurate field goal kicker in history, will have more ammunition this week.Replacement Brett Maher missed his only field goal attempt from 47 yards wide to the right. It came late in the third period with Dallas trailing 10-0.Intermittent rain made for a sloppy field at Bank of America Stadium on a windy afternoon Womens Connor Williams Jersey , conditions Maher brushed off."I know what my job is," Maher said. "My role on this team is to go out there and when I get a chance, put points on the board. I didn't do that today."REPLACING GREGORY: Randy Gregory's return to football didn't last long.The Cowboys defensive end, who missed the 2017 season because of multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, left the game in the first half with a concussion. The league could reportedly rule on another possible substance-abuse related suspension as early as this week.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he had no comment on those reports.CHASING HIM DOWN: The fact that the Panthers sacked Dak Prescott six times bodes well for the Carolina defense, given he's an elusive quarterback."We know he's a scrambling quarterback and we know he likes to get out of the pocket," Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson said. "There were some times he got out and escaped but overall, the D-line did a phenomenal job keeping him in the pocket."Prescott finished 19 of 29 for 170 yards, but just a 8.9-yard average and two completions of more than 15 yards.McCAFFREY'S TOUCHES: Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in ideal world McCaffrey would touch the ball "25-30 times per game" this season. But the versatile second-year back only got his hands on the football 16 times for 95 yards on Sunday.McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 50 yards, with a long of 15, and caught six passes for 45 yards. Newton targeted him a total of nine times in the passing game.McCaffrey's first carry, from the Dallas 5 in the first quarter and with the game still scoreless, resulted in a fumble that was recovered by Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence."It can't happen, but it's football," McCaffrey said.FULLBACK WEAPON: The Panthers might have a new goal line weapon in fullback Alex Armah, who scored on a 1-yard plunge on his first NFL carry.Armah's number was called after C.J. Anderson's 9-yard run to within two feet of the goal line. The second-year pro out of Division II West Georgia said he wasn't surprised to get the carry in his 10th career game."I was just ready," said Armah Youth Byron Jones Jersey , who primarily played special teams a year ago. "I wasn't too nervous because we practice it during the week. We go over it, so I really just tried to get into the end zone."Once he did, Armah chose not to give the ball away despite Newton's pleading with him. He wanted to keep it to mark the milestone."I don't blame him," Rivera said.AP stringers Eli Pacheco and Justin Parker contributed to this report. Ezekiel Elliott took one giant leap that may have saved Dallas' season.But it was Elliott's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that helped the Cowboys finally hurdle the Super Bowl champs.The Cowboys showed a second-half spark 鈥?and cooled the hot seat for coach Jason Garrett a few degrees 鈥?in a 27-20 win over the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones burst into the locker room and channeled his inner Ric Flair with a "Wooo!" that perked up the winners. Jones hit the locker room like a politician stumping for votes, shaking hands with anyone within reach."Now that was a win, I'll tell you right now," he said to a small circle of Cowboys.The Cowboys are just 4-5 but the victory steadied a franchise that saw Garrett again under fire and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman call for major organizational changes for a franchise far removed from the Super Bowl heyday.Elliott and Dak Prescott quieted the doubters after a dazzling Sunday that put the champion Eagles' season on the rocks."You can imagine the way Jason Garrett, his resolve before the game," Jones said. "I asked him before the game, 'You feeling any pressure?' (Garrett replied) 'It just makes me want to go out and do more to turn this thing.'"Elliott made highlight reels and kept the Dallas' NFC East title hopes alive when he extended a play in the first half. The Cowboys tried a fake punt on fourth-and-2 from their 31 and Jeff Heath took a direct snap and ran three yards. A few plays later, Elliott hurdled Tre Sullivan on a 32-yard run to the Eagles 8. Michael Bennett sacked Prescott on third down and Brett Maher kicked a 31-yard field goal for a 6-0 lead.Was it Elliott's best bound over a defender?"I'll leave that up to you guys to decide," Elliott said.Jones was positive it was Elliott's finest."We've seen him make that move before," Jones said. "But I don't know when I've ever seen him totally clear it."While the Super Bowl champions are reeling, the Cowboys didn't exactly look a serious threat to the NFC East crown. Prescott had 270 yards passing, tossed for one touchdown and also ran for a score. Elliott also had a TD reception , against an Eagles secondary depleted by injury.The Cowboys will need a win at Atlanta (4-5) next week and then a win Nov. 22 against division-leading Washington to really establish themselves as a playoff contender. It's a leap of faith larger than anything attempted by Elliott that the Cowboys can wrest their way into the NFC playoff picture.But for a night, it was enough."We had no choice but to win http://www.thecowboysfootballauthentic.com/jeff-heath-jersey-authentic ," said Elliott, who cupped his hand to his ear as he walked off the field to boos.Garrett, who has yet to lead Dallas to even an NFC title game, knew the magnitude of the rivalry game."We were in a challenging situation," he said. "We had to come up here and win a football game."Both teams felt the pressure even before former President George W. Bush performed the coin toss . The Cowboys and Eagles got into a small pregame scuffle that ended on the sideline before players were ushered back into the tunnel.Dallas took a 10-3 lead into the half before Elliott and Prescott got rolling. Elliott ran in from the 1 to give Dallas a 27-20 lead after Prescott completed passes of 24 yards to Amari Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns on the drive.It was the kind of drive that might have impressed Aikman. Aikman, who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, said this week "there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization ."The Cowboys just shrugged it off as just another controversy that didn't concern them."We're Dallas Cowboys. You guys love to talk about us, you guys love to make stories," Elliott said. "We're used to ignoring all the extra stuff and focusing on us."Eagles fans were spotted transporting a Cowboys coffin into Lincoln Financial Field , perhaps as a symbol of some sort of burial of Dallas' season.Don't hold those last playoff rites for the Cowboys just yet."When you're feeling low and you see the Grim Reaper," Jones said, "and then you come in and have your team perform the way these guys did, I promise you, it is a special feeling." nflshopoutlet.com
