One of the few positives we can take from the Cowboys’ 17-16 loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday is that cornerback Morris Claiborne and defensive end Anthony Spencer emerged from the contest relatively healthy.
Claiborne suffered a separated shoulder in last week’s win over the Giants. Spencer didn’t play in the season opener after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Both were limited against the Chiefs.
“It wasn’t so much actual pain, just every time you hit it you got some pain here and there, but I was expecting that,” Claiborne said of Sunday, per the Dallas Morning News. “That was something in the first week some of the doctors told me that I was going to be going through.”
Claiborne didn’t record a tackle against Kansas City while playing mostly at the nickel spot. Spencer recorded a pair of tackles and had a hit on the Chiefs’ Alex Smith.
