ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys suffered a scare during their 36-31 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night when quarterback suffered a rib injury late in the first half. Romo left for one play but returned to start the second half and completed the game.
Cowboys' officials said Romo got the wind knocked out of him, but the quarterback said he'll get X-rays Monday.
- Wide receiver Dez Bryant hurt his left foot at the end of the fourth quarter and after being taken out, he returned for a two-point conversion pass. Bryant said he hopes to practice on Wednesday.
- Cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered a separated left shoulder while making a tackle in the fourth quarter. Claiborne did return after the shoulder was popped back into place and finished the game.
- There was some good news along the injury front. Defensive end Anthony Spencer, who underwent knee surgery July 25, said he ran sprints and pushed a tackling sled Saturday and expects to do the same thing on Monday. Spencer said there's a goal he could return to practice on Wednesday in a limited fashion. "It felt good pushing the sled," Spencer said.
- Backup running back Lance Dunbar, who missed the game with a sprained foot, ran sprints before the Giants game and is on target to return to practice this week and the same could be said of backup safety Danny McCray (groin). McCray said he expects to play in the Week 2 game against Kansas City next week.
