Cornerback Morris Claiborne left in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game with a hamstring injury. Coach Jason Garrett said they "don't think it's a severe injury" and that Claiborne is day-to-day. Linebacker Rolando McClain is going through concussion protocol this week.
With Tony Romo shut down, the Cowboys have lost nine of their last 11 games. Matt Cassel is 1-5 in his place as a starter, and Garrett was asked if he will be the quarterback moving forward this season. "Matt Cassel will be our starting quarterback this week, yes," Garrett said.
