NFL Injury Report: Cowboys' Ernie Sims concussed in win

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Ernie Sims suffered a concussion in Week 15.

The Dallas Cowboys bolstered their playoff chances with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15, but the win came with a price. Linebacker Ernie Sims was forced from the game with a concussion, and did not return to action on Sunday.

Sims suffered the concussion early in the first quarter, and was given concussion tests on the sidelines. Since Sims did in fact suffer a concussion, he'll be forced to pass the league's concussion tests before he's cleared to play again.

Morris Claiborne, who suffered a concussion in Week 14, did not play for the Cowboys. Claiborne, who was Dallas' first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, did not pass his concussion tests, and thus, was ineligible to play.

Dez Bryant did suit up for the Cowboys, and caught four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown -- despite playing with an injured finger. Though he was effective, Bryant did have two drops that likely would have been caught, had Bryant been fully healthy.
