During his weekly radio appearance Tuesday morning, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones passed along the current status of several key contributors.
A 36-31 win over the New York Giants Sunday night included Tony Romo suffering bruised ribs, Dez Bryant spraining his left foot and Morris Claiborne needing his left shoulder to be popped back into place. But Jones says there's a good chance that all three will be on the field when the Cowboys play in Kansas City on Sunday.
On Romo: "He's sore," Jones told the New School show on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "He was at Valley Ranch yesterday. I personally had a visit with him yesterday, and we're all planning on him playing in the game."
On Bryant: "We've had it X-Rayed and we think that at least as of last night, we think that it will be something that we will watch this week, but he can play with this week."
On Claiborne: "That's the one we'll have to keep a real eye on. That's according to what degree it slipped out. They had to put it back in. We'll probably have to brace that up pretty good. There's a good chance that he'll go."
It's possible that defensive end Anthony Spencer and recently added veteran guard Brian Waters could also be on the field against the Chiefs. Spencer has been out since having arthroscopic left knee surgery on July 25. Waters signed with the Cowboys last week and is working into game shape after sitting out all of last season.
"I hope that both can take snaps this week and really have us thinking they can take snaps against Kansas City," Jones said. "That would be the best thing right now. We don't want to bring Spencer along any faster than we have to. But he sure had a good last two or three days before we stopped Sunday.
"The same thing with Waters. Waters was actually amazing that he was able to move and have some of the football things that you have to do, apart from just his endurance. I think there's a chance he could play some, too."

Dez Bryant showed signs of becoming a superstar in the second half of the 2012 season. And that's why he received the bulk of the Giants' attention during the Cowboys' 36-31 win Sunday.
Bryant only caught four passes for 22 yards, but his presence paved the way for big games from Jason Witten and Miles Austin. In fact, Witten became Romo's primary option in the red...
