    Catch the Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at 4:15pm est on FOX.

    IRVING, Texas – Three days before taking on the Vikings in what’s being billed as an elimination game, the Cowboys have injury issues with a couple of key contributors.

    Rookie receiver Dez Bryant and starting center Andre Gurode both missed practice Thursday with injuries.

    Bryant continues to be bothered by an ankle injury that originally started during training camp.

    “I am worried that he might not be able to play,” coach Wade Phillips said during his post-practice media session.

    Gurode’s knee flared up as he began practice Thursday. He was taken for an MRI.

    The injury apparently occurred in last Sunday’s loss to the Titans. Gurode was able to practice on it Wednesday but Phillips said the knee was too sore to practice on Thursday.

    If Gurode can’t play this Sunday, starting guard Kyle Kosier will move over and play center.

    I'm not sure I like moving Kozier to Center and putting Holland in there. We may need Holland in Davis's spot again. I know he's a rookie, but rookie centers often play...I really liked the kid from Maryland in the preseason. I think he's a solid center.

    Free, Kosier, Costa, Holland, Colombo

    Worth a try as Kosier hasn't practiced much at Center and I bet Costa has been doing Nothing else. Oh yeah and the BIG exclusion is just looking like something the coaches should experiment with seriously. Holland has been pretty consistent when given an opportunity.
