NFL Injury Report: Cowboys dinged up in win

After an emotionally draining weekend, Sunday the Dallas Cowboys moved above .500 for the first time since Week 3 when they defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to improve to 2-1.

Dallas' win came with a bit of a cost, however, as the Cowboys were hit with a few more injuries during their come-from-behind win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.

Rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered a lacerated lip in the third quarter, on a play that could have been much worse than the final outcome. Claiborne's helmet popped off after suffering an inadvertent helmet-to-helmet hit with his own teammate. Luckily, Claiborne left the fielder under his own power, and only has a lacerated lip to show for the ugly hit.

Once again, linebacker DeMarcus Ware injured his arm during the game, but did return to action, missing only a few plays before returning.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant sprained his finger on Sunday, but remained in the game -- and eventually caught a critical touchdown pass from Tony Romo.
