Running back DeMarco Murray and defensive end DeMarcus Ware might miss Sunday’s NFC East showdown against Philadelphia and maybe more.

Both were injured in Sunday night’s 31-16 win over Washington at AT&T Stadium. Ware left the game with a right quadriceps injury. Murray has a sprained knee.

On Monday, coach Jason Garrett said the team will evaluate both players on a day-by-day basis.

Garrett denied a report that Ware is out for four or more weeks.

“We’re not living on that timetable,” Garrett said. “We’ll see how it goes.”

Ware agreed.

“I don’t think so. I just know that my body recovers really fast,” Ware said Monday. “I’m not going to be out that long.”

Ware has already missed game time with a stinger and a back injury.

“They (trainers) are saying doubtful this week,” Ware said. “I don’t know how long.

“It’s better today than it was. It’s progressing.”

The Cowboys all-time sack leader has not missed a game in his career. He has started 33 of 34 career regular-season games. The only game he did not start was at New Orleans on December 19, 2009 after returning from a neck sprain and playing mostly in passing situations.

“For me, missing a game, that’s not the problem. It’s going out there and being effective,” Ware said. “This injury put me out last game. I couldn’t go out there and do what I needed to do. I’ll come back healthy.”

Murray missed most of the game with a sprained medial collateral ligament, leaving rookie Joseph Randle to handle the running game duties in his first action of the season on offense.

Randle had played one game on special teams.

“He (Murray) came in today and said it felt better,” Garrett said.

Murray, who missed six games last year with a foot injury, had seven carries for 29 yards and a touchdown when he left the game.
