Sensabaugh Ok after Big Collision

Cowboys’ starting strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh says he is “ok” after suffering a rib injury on a hit he inflicted on Michael Clayton in the third quarter of today’s game. Sensabaugh immediately hit the ground after the hit, and it appeared that he may have significantly injured himself as he was noticeably in a lot of pain. However, X-rays in the locker room were negative, and it is being termed a rib bruise. The Cowboys’ new addition says that he should be ready to go against the Giants next Sunday, which is a big plus for the team.

Sensabaugh was undeniably leaps and bounds better in coverage than any other player the Cowboys have plugged in that position in years. He was all over the field coming up to support the run, as well as covering receivers man to man with great success. One thing that I noticed that I had yet to hear anywhere is that he looked incredibly fast out there, one play in particular Cadillac Williams was all but in the endzone when Sensabaugh came out of nowhere to run him down from behind saving a would be touchdown. Not only did he make a big difference on defense, he brought a spark to the special teams units by blocking a field goal in the first half that was probably just one block short of being returned for a touchdown, and eventually led to a Cowboys field goal.

Although he has only been in a Cowboys uniform in one regular season game, it can already be said that Sensabaugh makes this defensive secondary complete, and if unable to play his presence would be sorely missed. The fact that he says he will be on the field against the Giants is great news for Cowboys fans.
