The Cowboys might felt insulted by the way the Seahawks pushed them around in Sunday’s 27-7 loss and they definitely wound up injured as a result of the game.
Safety Gerald Sensabaugh said after the game that his calf “popped a little bit” on a Marshawn Lynch touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He had an MRI on Monday and Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports that team sources have told him that Sensabaugh may miss a couple of weeks as a result.
Sensabaugh’s parter Barry Church also left the game with an injury. He hurt his quadriceps early in the game, returned briefly and then sat out the rest of the proceedings. He said he feels he’ll be able to play against the Buccaneers. Sensabaugh said the same thing, though, and it doesn’t look like his self-diagnosis was on the spot.
If both players are out for the Tampa game, the Cowboys would have to turn to Danny McCray and Mana Silva at the position and only McCray and Silva since they have no other healthy safeties on the roster at present. Neither McCray nor Silva has ever started a game before which could leave safety, a trouble spot for the Cowboys in 2011, in shaky hands as the Cowboys play their first home game of the year.
