    IRVING – First safety Barry Church went down. Then linebacker Sean Lee. On Sunday, defensive end Kenyon Coleman became the third defensive starter for the Cowboys to suffer a season-ending injury, tearing his left triceps muscle in the third quarter of Dallas’ 38-23 victory over Philadelphia.

    The Cowboys received the sobering news about Coleman’s status after he underwent an MRI. The 11th-year veteran will undergo surgery Tuesday and will be placed on the team’s injured reserve list, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    “That’s a loss for us because he’s been such a good player for us,” Jason Garrett said. “He is one of the leaders of the defensive line and certainly one of the leaders of our defense. He is a very, very good run defender and has shown that he can push the pocket and pressure the quarterback a little bit, too. He’ll be a loss for us, but like with the other guys that have gone out this year, the next man has to be up.”

    Garrett said the team will likely promote one of their two practice-squad defensive linemen, Robert Callaway and Ben Bass, to the active roster this week.

    “We anticipate making a move to add to the defensive line and those are the logical ones,” Garrett said.

    I don't think Coleman would have made it past this season, but I'm all for Crawford getting more snaps and seeing more lissemore when he gets back.

    Plus, we still have Marcus Spears and the draft in 2013.

    We can only hope. We need to find a way to stay healthy.

    They need to bring Bass up off the practice team.

    Hope we make a push for Richard Seymour to finish his career here. Might be a better option for 2 years because I don't see any potential JJ Watts in this draft
