Cowboys overcome injuries to beat 49ers 24-17

The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears are sitting back to back at 29th and 30th, respectively.

Linebacker NaVorro Bowman will undergo season-ending surgery to fix his Achillles tendon, the team . Further tests Monday confirmed the diagnosis, putting him out for the entire 2016 season.

The 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, and will look to linebackers Michael Wilhoite, Gerald Hodges, Nick Bellore, and Shane Skov to fill the void. But the way I look at it is that we are working toward getting pretty sound at that position.

Weatherspoon, Atlanta's first-round draft pick in 2010, missed the 2014 season with a torn left Achilles tendon.

Remember Lawrence led the Cowboys past year with eight sacks, and they would love to have him on the field trying to affect the quarterback in the pocket.

After signing a four-year, $44 million extension with the team earlier in August, Bowman spoke about how his role on the team transcended his on-field performance.

Amazingly lost amid Prescott vs. Romo debate is fact that Ezekiel Elliott has been as advertised, on pace for league-high 1,600 rushing yards. Elliott added five more carries for 27 yards on that drive and capped it with a go-ahead 1-yard TD run that helped the Cowboys beat the Niners 24-17.

Mickey Spagnola: You want your starters out there, but again, the Cowboys had a starter sitting on the bench in Ron Leary, and he stepped in and didn't miss a beat, with the Cowboys rushing for almost 200 yards was evidence. "Things will be different defensively". "We don't even know who is saying it, you know, that's the insane part about it". Linebacker NaVorro Bowman was carted off the sidelines. "Bellore, Whilhoite, Hodge, and Skov".

The 49ers could be without another key defensive player as well. There was no immediate word about the extent of his injury. San Francisco then converted just one of its final seven third-down chances.

Lawrence returns this week after a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. "I'd like to be 4-0", he in his postgame press conference. "I think one of the things that we've seen with our team is that competition in camp and minicamps, I think you've seen the result pay off with the way we've played". I think we can have a very successful season with Tony Romo at quarterback. "So, he's got to catch back up to that". Actually before the season began it was "how long" can the Cowboys hold on without Romo, now it appears people believe Dallas does not need number 9.

Gabbert will get one more game, and maybe a week or two after that, but at some point this offense will be turned back over to Kaepernick for the first time since his national anthem protest made him a household name.
