Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode has sprained knee

The Dallas Cowboys added another player to their growing injury report when starting center Andre Gurode was diagnosed with a sprained right knee Monday.

Gurode, who underwent an MRI exam on Monday, should be able to play at Kansas City this Sunday. He suffered the injury in Sunday's loss at Denver.

In other injury news:

* Starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff (back) and starting outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (hip pointer) are nursing injuries, but should be OK.

* Coach Wade Phillips said running back Marion Barber only had one touch in the second half against the Broncos because his left quad had stiffened up. Phillips said he expects Barber to feel better this week.

* The status of backup running back Felix Jones (knee) remains uncertain. If he can't play Sunday vs. Kansas City, the Cowboys feel he will return after the bye week to play against Atlanta on Oct. 25.
