The Dallas Cowboys had many key players suffer minor injuries during their Sunday Night Football match up against the New York Giants. From Tony Romo and his ribs to Dez Bryant and his foot, the team is hoping to be healthy for next weekend’s match up against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Unfortunately for the Cowboys, starting cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered one of the more severe injuries out of the group, but he will be able to take the field for the team’s Week 2 match up.

From Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Cornerback Morris Claiborne will wear a harness against the Chiefs to protect his dislocated shoulder.

The brace shouldn’t affect the way that Claiborne will compete, but it could make him hesitant to tackle. That’s good news for Dwayne Bowe, who could use his physicality to take advantage of the weakness Claiborne will be having in his arm.

It’s highly unlikely that Claiborne will be playing much press, so there will be openings in the passing game for Alex smith and company.
