Here are five things to know about the Dallas Cowboys.
Earl Wolff underwent what he described as “mini-microfracture” surgery to help repair damaged cartilage in his right knee.
The operation was performed by Dr. James Andrews. He will be on crutches for the next four weeks, he said, and the hope is that he is back to full-speed by the end of April or beginning of May. Read more »

Earl Wolff suddenly finds himself in a pretty precarious position.
There was some optimism surrounding the second-year safety heading into the season. Chip Kelly noted back in the spring how Wolff was back to “flying around” the field after being hobbled by a knee injury down the stretch of the 2013 campaign. “Right now we’re really excited about Earl,” he said.
The head coach’s tone was much different leading into the Texans game.
“Earl’s been okay. I think he needs to be a little bit more consistent from [a training] standpoint. But he’s okay,” said Kelly. Wolff started that week in place of the injured Nate Allen and was up and down. The next day the Eagles signed safety Chris Prosinski when DeMeco Ryans was placed on injured reserve. Seven days after being plucked off the street, Prosinski was active and Wolff was on the outside looking in.
While talking about Jordan Matthews at his postgame press conference Monday night, Mark Sanchez joked that he didn’t want too pump up the rookie too much because “he’ll get a big head and his hat won’t fit.”
There were no signs of an inflated ego as Matthews faced the large crowd of reporters surrounding his locker stall, though, and his green Eagles cap with the black brim seemed to fit just fine. He had just busted out on Monday Night Football, snaring seven balls for 138 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help his team improve to 7-2. How did it feel?
“I felt like I was Jeremy Maclin,” said Matthews, drawing a big smile out of No. 18 a couple stalls down. “At the same time, you have to put it behind you. Like I said, I have a bunch of great guys ahead of me who show me how to be a professional. If you take too much time looking at the stats and drinking the Kool-Aid, you lose your appetite. I just try to put it behind me and move forward.” Read more »
