Jerry Optimistic About Dez, Claiborne

Dez Bryant and Morris Claiborne came away from the season opener nursing injuries



    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones believes there’s a good chance that Dez Bryant and Morris Claiborne, both of whom were injured on Sunday night, will play in Week 2 against the Chiefs.

    In an interview with The New School Show on 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, Jones seemed just a little more optimistic about Bryant, who suffered a mild foot sprain against the Giants, but he wouldn’t close the door on Claiborne returning for the Kansas City game, either.

    We’ve had it X-Rayed,” Jones said of Bryant’s foot, via the Dallas Morning News, “and we think that at least as of last night, we think that it will be something that we will watch this week, but he can play with this week.”

    Claiborne suffered a separated shoulder while making a tackle against the Giants, but returned after having it popped back in by team doctors.

    “That’s the one we’ll have to keep a real eye on,” Jones said of Claiborne. “That’s according to what degree it slipped out. They had to put it back in. We’ll probably have to brace that up pretty good. There’s a good chance that he’ll go.”
