Cowboys hit hard by injuries in 49ers loss, view KaVontae Turpin high-ankle sprain as 'least of our worries

The Dallas Cowboys were completely destroyed by the rival San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, and they may be dealing with a rash of injuries that is even worse than the game's final score of 42-10.  

It was already reported on Monday morning that wide receiver/All-Pro return man KaVontae Turpin suffered a high-ankle sprain during the game.

Turpin could be placed on injured reserve as a result of this injury, which typically keeps players out for 4-6 weeks. 

According to the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys consider Turpin's injury to be "the least of our concerns." 

This is extremely concerning because the Cowboys lost three defensive starters to injuries in the second half.  

Most notably, during the fourth quarter, linebacker Leighton Vander Esch appeared to suffer a neck injury when he collided with Micah Parsons while 

chasing down a run play. Vander Esch, Dallas' most dependable linebacker, has missed significant time due to neck and back issues during his career.  

In addition to Vander Esch, safety Donovan Wilson had to be helped off the field due to a leg injury, and cornerbacks Jourdan Lewis  

and DaRon Bland suffered unspecified injuries in the second half. They were replaced in the lineup by Noah Igbinoghene and Juanyeh Thomas,
