Injury report: Rossum's status uncertain


ARLINGTON, Texas -- Return man Allen Rossum pulled his right hamstring during his first kickoff return as a member of the Cowboys.

Rossum was signed last week to improve a weak return unit. But Rossum, in his first game since Sept. 27 when he played with San Francisco, fielded a kickoff and took a hard hit from Cory Wire. Rossum did not return, and his status is uncertain.

Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware reported no problems with the stress fracture in his left foot. Ware had two sacks.

"I think the trainers took care of me," Ware said. "God healed me."

Strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh wore soft padding over a hard cast to protect his right thumb, which was surgically repaired. Sensabaugh said he had some problems but as the game wore on he felt fine. Sensabaugh left the locker room wearing a black hand brace.

Tony Romo suffered a slightly strained neck after a scramble. It didn't seem to bother the Cowboys quarterback, who didn't miss any snaps.

"Well, anytime you have that, you've got to take a look, and he was slow coming off the field, but he went right back out there and played a really good game," Jerry Jones said. "And when you get that kind of play out of him and the supporting cast around him, the defense, you've got a chance to beat good teams."

Roy Williams, who has three bruised ribs, didn't start but had no real problems. The Cowboys opened the game with a two tight-end set, and Williams came in on the second offensive play.
