The Cowboys got some good news on Tuesday when owner Jerry Jones revealed that injured middle linebacker Rolando McClain has a chance of playing in Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
McClain re-aggravated a groin injury in the second half of Sunday’s 20-17 overtime victory against the Houston Texans.
But Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM that “there is a possibility” he could play against the Seahawks.
“Rolando looks good, according to our trainers [Monday],” Jones said. “He came in and they were pleasantly surprised. There is a possibility.”
Jones is not as optimistic about strong side linebacker Bruce Carter, who missed last Sunday’s game with a quad strain and is doubtful for the Seattle game.
“I feel better about McClain and less about Carter,” Jones said. “But these guys can surprise you. It’s not impossible to have both.”
The possibility of getting McClain back would be a huge for a Cowboys defense that struggles against the run with him out of the lineup. Stopping the run is paramount against the Seahawks, lead by bruising running back Marshawn Lynch.
