The Cowboys didn't suffer many injuries during Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and a backup is making progress on his injury.

Running back Felix Jones was limited in the second half of Sunday's game due to a bruised thigh he suffered in the first half after being flipped when he was tackled after a run.

Miles Austin returned kicks in the second half and Head Coach Wade Phillips said Tashard Choice got more carries because of Jones' injury. Jones isn't expected to miss anytime.

Gerald Sensabaugh bruised his rib when he hit Bucs receiver Michael Clayton after catching a pass and didn't return to the game but X-rays were negative.

Sensabaugh was quoted on the Cowboys website saying, "I just had some sharp pain, Initially the breath was knocked out of me; I had some sharp pain in my back. I knew it wasn't that serious. That's why I tried to get up." 

Sensabaugh said that he wouldn't miss Sunday night's game against the Giants but Patrick Watkins, who replaced Sensabaugh, will take first team reps with the Cowboys if Sensabaugh misses any practice time.

Linebacker Jason Williams who missed Sunday's game with a sprained ankle had his walking boot taken off on Monday, however it's unknown if Williams will play on Sunday as he was originally expected to miss three to six weeks.

Linebacker DeMarcus Ware got his bell rung in the first quarter but only missed on defensive series and finished the game. He's expected to practice and play this week.
