Early in last week's win over the Texans, running back Christian McCaffrey suffered a hamstring injury that will cause him to miss this week's game in Dallas. Before the injury, the 25-year-old running back had amassed a team-high 364 all-purpose yards on 68 touches this season.
The Cowboys have rolled off back-to-back wins after falling to the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a last-second field goal in the season opener. Mike McCarthy's club narrowly got past the Chargers in Week 2, 20-17, before laying a beatdown on NFC East rival Philadelphia 41-21 on Monday Night Football last week.
Leading the way for the Cowboys is quarterback Dak Prescott, who has picked up where he left off last season when a severe ankle injury ended what had the potential to be an MVP-caliber season. Through three games this year, Prescott leads all qualifying quarterbacks with a 77.5 completion percentage.
He'll face his toughest test of the season in a Carolina defense that has allowed a league-low 191 yards per game. The Panthers are also second in scoring, with their 10 points per game second only to the also undefeated Denver Broncos.
