IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys center Andre Gurode and Eagles right guard Shawn Andrews sustained knee injuries in the Eagles' 10-6 victory Sunday, and both will have MRIs Monday.

It wasn't clear how or when Andrews hurt his right knee, but he hobbled to the locker room at the end of the first quarter and never returned. The team said he had a sprained MCL.

Gurode was hurt on a passing play in the third quarter. After trainers tended to him on the field and then on the sideline for several minutes, Gurode limped to the locker room for X-rays.

Cowboys defensive end Chris Canty also left with a left knee injury after a teammate rolled on his leg at end of a play in the third quarter. Canty said he would be fine, a message echoed by team officials.

Tight end Anthony Fasano sustained a mild concussion and cornerback Pat Watkins sprained his left ankle. Watkins will be re-evaluated Monday, but left the stadium using crutches with his foot in a protective boot.

A Cowboys medical source told ESPN that Dallas quarterback Tony Romo sustained a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, and it was heavily wrapped after the game. X-rays were negative and Romo, who didn't miss a play after getting hurt in the "middle of the game'', said he was OK.

Eagles tight end Matt Schobel sustained a concussion after taking a shot to the helmet while trying to make a catch on the game's opening series. He didn't return.

Schobel was hurt on a hit by Ken Hamlin. The Cowboys safety appeared to try to turn his shoulder when he jumped to hit Schobel, but their helmets made hard contact and both players went to the ground. After the players remained down momentarily, they walked off the field with help.

Hamlin returned to the game a couple of plays later, but Schobel went to the locker room.

Schobel, who played at nearby TCU, started in place of L.J. Smith, who was out with a knee injury.
