Today's headlines from US Sport:
- Victor Cruz will be out for the remainder of the NFL season after suffering a serious knee injury last night.
- The Dallas Cowboys jumped to a five and one record after a shock road win against Seattle.
- And Kevin Durant looks set to miss the first month of the NBA season after fracturing his foot.
We start off with Victor Cruz, who suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right knee as the Giants were crushed by the Eagles on Sunday night.
Cruz was carted off the field and was seen sobbing with his head in his hands as he knew he would miss the rest of this season and faces a long road back to full fitness.
On to the Dallas Cowboys who shocked everyone by beating the Super Bowl champs Seattle Seahawks 30-23 in the imposing CenturyLink Field.
DeMarco Murray continued his quest to break Eric Dickerson’s long-standing rushing record with 115 yards and 1 TD while Tony Romo carved the Legion of Boom open for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns through the air.
And Finally, reigning MVP Kevin Durant looks set to miss the first month of the NBA season at minimum after suffering a “Jones fracture” in his right foot. OKC general manager Sam Presti spoke about Durant and the potential for surgery.
"Yesterday after practice Kevin alerted our medical staff of feeling a little bit of an aching in his right foot upon that notification we commissioned the necessary images as we would in any event with any player and through the afternoon yesterday (Saturday, October 11th) and the information that was gathered it was the diagnosis from our group that he's suffering from a "Jones" fracture," Presti said yesterday.
"A "Jones" fracture is from what I've been told the most common surgical procedure performed on NBA players as of late, it has happened enough so that there is enough of a body of work to be able to look at an average recovery time that's about 6 to 8 weeks of return to play with that being said we're always really cautious in those cases because until you understand the individual case it's hard to put a time frame on it so it's not for us to try to predict nature or medicine but we do have a body of work from other injuries to draw from in this case."News Now - Sport News
