Stephen McGee has to play
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have lost another
quarterback Saturday night with Jon Kitna leaving with a hip injury
late in the first half against Arizona.
Kitna, the starter since Tony Romo broke his collarbone nine
games ago, had run 7 yards to the 2-yard line, then thrown a
fourth-down touchdown pass to Jason Witten just before he went to
the locker room for treatment.
The 38-year-old quarterback's game got off to a shaky start when
Arizona intercepted him twice in the first quarter and returned
both for touchdowns. He was sacked three times before he left the
Dallas has gone 4-4 with Kitna as starter. Stephen McGee, a
second-year pro from Texas A&M, has replaced Kitna and, in the
third quarter, has thrown his first NFL pass.
