The Cowboys defense just keeps getting hit by the injury bug.
Starting safety Barry Church and cornerback Morris Claiborne didn’t make it to the end of the loss to the Lions on Sunday as each suffered a hamstring injury. Fortunately, neither player believes their injury to be anything very serious, and expect to play next week against the Vikings.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Church said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I just strained my right hammy a little bit. I should be right back next week.”
As for Claiborne, the second-year corner is no stranger to being dinged up. He dislocated his shoulder while making a tackle in the season opener against the Giants and has been wearing a large harness ever since.
“That’s life,” Claiborne said. “I don’t think [his hamstring is] as bad. I think it’s one of those precaution things not to hurt it any worse than what it was already hurting.”
