Lardarius Webb wasn’t the only cornerback to pick up an injury during Sunday’s Ravens-Cowboys game.

It looks like the Ravens corner is the only one who will miss any significant time, though. Cowboys cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Mike Jenkins both missed time during the 31-29 loss and went for MRIs to assess the amount of damage. The news was good for each player.

Claiborne hurt his knee on a play that ended with Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith celebrating a touchdown catch. The rookie, who sprained his MCL during training camp, stayed down for a long stretch before leaving the game, although he was able to return later. Jenkins hurt his shoulder, which was surgically repaired during the offseason, but was also able to get back into the game after a spell on the bench. The Cowboys said the MRIs on each player showed no structural damage in either case, which should mean they’re able to play the Panthers in Week Seven.

Whether or not running back DeMarco Murray is able to join them remains doubtful, although the news on his foot injury was not as bad as feared. So the Cowboys dodged serious injury, now they’ve just got to dodge the mistakes that sank their chances of winning in Baltimore.
