The Dallas Cowboys will go into their Week 3 game with St. Louis keeping the injury talk to a minimum.
The Cowboys escaped their 17-16 loss with Kansas City without a serious injury and with all of its injured players from Week 2 coming out of the contest healthy.
The most serious new injury was to DeMarcus Ware, who had to come out of the game after suffering a minor shoulder injury when he sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith for a loss, only to have the play erased by a delay of game penalty. The Dallas Cowboys classified it as a “stinger” shortly after the game, and on Monday afternoon head coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys didn’t expect it to be a major issue.
Garrett told reporters that he felt that quarterback Tony Romo wasn’t hampered by the sore ribs he suffered in the season opener. Romo reportedly received a pain-killing injection before Sunday’s game to help him manage the residual pain of his sore ribs. He played the entire contest, throwing for 298 yards and a touchdown.
Romo told reporters after the game that he had no issues.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant’s back tightened up after Sunday’s game and he received treatment. But Garrett reported that Bryant had no setbacks from his injured ankle.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne did not have a setback from his shoulder injury, despite taking a serious hit in the second half.
