Same injury Emmitt had and Emmitt was back a week after his surgery on it. But it might be tougher for TO since he has to catch the ball and not just take handoffs for 90% of his touches.
Dallas looked good, hate that the Foreskins got a TD on a KR, the defense looked like I expected it to look last week. DC Mike Zimmer finally dipped into his blitz packages instead of just using basic ones like last week and you saw the result. Greg Ellis finally looked comfortable out there at LB, Hatcher (3rd rd pick) really caught my eye, Ware/Roy Williams/Newman all looked like their all world selves, and both of our RBs looked to be in top form.
If/when Bledsoe gets comfortable with TO and Anthony Fasano...watch out for this offense.
Also, one big negative, it looks like the Cowboys drafted a definite BUST in the 1st round with Bobby Carpenter. He has to be the slowest LB I have ever seen. Id rather have kept Scott Shanle over this guy, he is slow and is always taking the wrong angles. For a guy that had a NFL dad and went to Ohio State, he isnt very smart out there.
Just kinda sucks watching Manny Lawson get 2 sacks and Bobby Carpenter costing us a TD on special teams. Atleast we could have drafted a young offensive lineman or Chad Jackson or something, Carpenter appears to be a lock for ending up a bust in this league. He is just flat out slow.
TO's injury couldnt have come in a better time..unless it never came. Its gonna take 2-4 weeks as it looks. Boys' have a bye next week then fave the dismal titans. after that, its the big game in philly..and you know, and i know it, and everyone knows it that TO will make sure hes ready for that game.
dallas looked good last nite...even with TO getting 3 rec 19 yds but his presence also affect the game. but he offense was clicking and like miles said, if bledsoe gets a little thing goin with TO...
heres my prediction for that division:
1. Dallas Cowboys
2. Philadelphia Eagles
3. New York Giants
4. Washington Redskins
**I may be a little biased since my favorite two teams in the nfl are dallas and philly..but this is not a stretch by any means.

damnit...didnt know philly lost kearse for the yr. he had something like 2 and hald sacks yesterday. big loss. hopefully, they dont get infested with injuries like last yr. damn. oh and that rookie trent cole is gonna be a beast (even though he gave NY 15 yds on a penalty for kicking that set up the tieing FG)..had 3 sacks yesterday and is lookin good. maybe he'll step up and fill in for kearse.
