Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones might miss the rest of the season because of a neck injury.
Coach Wade Phillips said yesterday that Jones, who was injured early in the 20-13 loss at Pittsburgh, has a "herniated disk, maybe two" and will definitely miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
"Our people don't think it's career threatening or anything else that he would have to be operated on or anything like that," Phillips said. "But it is something that might put him out this year."
Jones was scheduled to be evaluated by another doctor today.
"The prognosis wasn't good for him playing this year, from our people," Phillips said. "They're going to see if maybe they can re-evaluate in a few weeks or they'll say you're not going to play this year. That's what we're looking at."
