Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is out this week and might miss the rest of the season after injuring his neck against Pittsburgh.
Coach Wade Phillips said Wednesday that Jones will miss Sunday’s game against the Giants with a herniated disc in his neck. Phillips said there might be damage to a second disc and that Jones could be sidelined for the season. He said team doctors don’t consider the injury career-threatening.
Jones was hurt when he fell on top of his muffed punt but still got caught in a scramble for the loose ball. After several players fell on him, Jones was pulled from the pile awkwardly by a Pittsburgh player.
