Leonard, Phillips among injured players

Cincinnati Bengals running back Brian Leonard and Dallas Cowboys

tight end John Phillips were among several players injured Sunday

night in the Hall of Fame game.

Leonard suffered a sprain of his left foot late in the second

quarter on a reception and was helped from the field. He did not

return and will be further examined when the team returns to

training camp.

Phillips, who had four receptions for 60 yards, had his right

knee examined after leaving in the first half and did not get back

in the game. Afterward, he said he thought he tore something, but

the Cowboys said they would have no updates until Monday.

Also injured were Bengals veteran safety Chris Crocker (right

ankle) and rookie running back Cordera Eason (right foot); Cowboys

receiver-kick returner Titus Ryan (broken left thumb); Dallas

tackle Alex Barron (sprained right ankle); and Cowboys tight end

Kevin Brock (sprained left ankle).

Eason, an undrafted rookie out of Mississippi, returned for the

next series in the fourth quarter, then left for the locker room on

a golf cart.
