PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles will be without defensive tackle Hollis Thomas 3-6 weeks because of a dislocated left elbow.
The 6-0, 306-pound eight-year veteran was injured in the second quarter of Sunday night's 17-14 win at Washington, and did not play in the second half. The former University of Illinois player suffered a season-ending biceps tear to the same elbow last season.
Team doctors confirmed the injury during an MRI Monday.
The NFC East champion Eagles (12-1), who host Dallas this Sunday, have three games left in the regular season and first-round bye in the playoffs.
Thomas is hopeful for a return for the divisional playoffs the weekend of Jan. 15-16.
Also among the team's walking wounded are defensive tackle Corey Simon (back), center Hank Fraley (ankle) and wide receiver Terrell Owens (back). All are listed as probable for the Cowboys.
