Cowboys thin at inside linebacker

By Todd Archer

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Cowboys are dangerously thin at inside linebacker with Ernie Sims suffering from dizziness and Alex Albright spraining his right knee in the first half against New Orleans.

Sims suffered a concussion last week against Pittsburgh but was able to practice on Thursday and Friday. He was questionable for today’s game but started. He came out in the first quarter.

Sims’ replacement, Alex Albright, was hurt covering a kickoff with 5:35 left in the second quarter. He was replaced by Brady Poppinga, who signed with the Cowboys on Nov. 26.

Sims is questionable return. The team made the announcement that Albright "might" return.
