Cowboys safeties banged up during loss

October, 2, 2011
ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys had two injuries of note following the 34-30 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon at Cowboys Stadium.

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh suffered a concussion with 11:31 left in the third quarter. After making a tackle on Lions receiver Nate Burleson, Anthony Spencer came in to support and accidentally hit Sensabaugh, who did not return.

Sensabaugh said he was dizzy and didn't know much about the game after he left. The Cowboys were leading 27-3 when he left.

Safety Barry Church, who replaced Sensabaugh at safety, was also injured. He dislocated his right shoulder with 3:56 to play in the fourth quarter and returned for one play.

Church left Cowboys Stadium with ice on his shoulder.
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
