Report: Cowboys DT Melton has leg injury


The Detroit Lions are likely to be without their top two defensive tackles when they meet the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday, but the Cowboys might be without one of their own interior defenders as well.

Defensive tackle Henry Melton suffered a leg injury Sunday in Dallas’ 44-17 win over the Washington Redskins, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Melton was to undergo an MRI on Monday.

Dallas signed Melton last offseason even though he was coming off a torn ACL, and the 28-year-old rewarded them with excellent interior rush and five sacks.
