Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware suffered a quadriceps injury during Sunday night's victory.

Ware has played in 134 consecutive games, making 133 starts.

Running back DeMarco Murray will also likely be unable to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. He suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

Ware and Murray had MRIs on Monday.

PACKERS: Wide receiver Randall Cobb will miss 6 to 8 weeks with a fractured fibula.

Cobb, who leads the team with 29 receptions, sustained his injury when he was hit in the right leg by the helmet of Ravens safety Matt Elam in the second quarter Sunday.

CARDINALS: Defensive end Calais Campbell was back at the team’s practice facility Monday, less than 24 hours after he was carted off the field in San Francisco.

The 6-foot-8, 300-pounder hopes to be cleared to play for Arizona’s home against Seattle on Thursday night. Another test was scheduled for Monday.

Campbell underwent tests at Stanford University’ for possible neck and spine injuries, and all results were favorable.

EAGLES: Get ready for another week of Michael Vick or Nick Foles.

Given ample opportunity to squash a quarterback controversy Monday, Chip Kelly chose to be evasive about who will start next week.

“Until we know what the health is, I’m not saying what anybody or anybody is,” Kelly said. “All our decisions on who is going to play is based on health.”

PANTHERS: Coach Ron Rivera says the team will wait until later this week to decide whether to activate running back Jonathan Stewart to the 53-man roster.

Stewart is on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list with an ankle injury but is eligible to play this Sunday against the St. Louis Rams if activated to the roster.

BILLS: Matt Flynn is getting his latest chance at a fresh start, this time in Buffalo on a team that has spent the past week scrambling to shore up its injury-depleted quarterback position.

A week after being cut by Oakland, Flynn signed with the Bills on Monday after spending the morning working out for general manager Doug Whaley, coach Doug Marrone and his offensive staff.

RAIDERS: The worst game of Terrelle Pryor’s career won’t cost him his job as the starting quarterback – now or anytime soon.

One day after Pryor threw three interceptions, including two in the final 4½ minutes of a 24-7 loss to Kansas City, coach Dennis Allen said he remains committed to the young quarterback and has no plans to make a change.

REDSKINS: Linebacker Bryan Kehl tore the ACL in his left knee, and long snapper Nick Sundberg tore the meniscus in his right knee in Sunday’s loss at Dallas.
