Cowboys claim CB Michael Coe

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas was hurting for some help in the secondary after Morris Claiborne suffered a facial injury against Cincinnati in Week 14, and added a vet from the Dolphins.

The Dallas Cowboys claimed veteran defensive back Michael Coe off waivers Tuesday from the Miami Dolphins, helping to provide some insurance in case defensive back Morris Claiborne isn't able to go against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reported the signing that should add some depth to the Dallas secondary. Coe may come to the Cowboys from Miami, but he began the season with their divisional rival New York Giants, playing seven games for Big Blue and recording all 13 tackles he's had in 2012. The Cowboys may need Coe to be a key contributor after Claiborne suffered facial lacerations due to a big hit against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.

Ironically, Coe may have had his best games of the season so far against Dallas. In Week 1, Coe put up five tackles (three solo) and a pass deflection in a 24-17 loss to the Cowboys. He then notched a tackle and recovered a fumble in the Giants' 29-24 Week 8 triumph over Dallas.
