    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – What a rollercoaster season it has been for Phil Costa[​IMG], who has now suffered another big setback.

    Costa has a severely sprained right ankle with a partial dislocation that occurred in the second quarter of the Cowboys’ 19-14 win over the Panthers. Costa had to be carted off the field, but X-rays were negative. He left the locker room in a walking boot and is expected to have more tests on Monday.

    The timetable on his injury is unknown but head coach Jason Garrett had some concern after the game.

    "It looked very severe to me from where I was sitting, and when they bring the cart out and they immobilize it all of those things," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He's a tough kid. When he came inside, it still looks like a pretty significant injury. We'll monitor it day-to-day, but it looked really severe when it first happened."
