    IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys outside linebacker Ernie Sims missed practice on Wednesday with a groin injury. Sims had some conversations with coach Jason Garrett and the medical staff after practice about his health. Sims suffered a groin injury toward the end of training camp, but was able to recover in time to start the regular season. Defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and cornerback Morris Claiborne (shoulder) were limited participants in practice.

    I have pulled a groin and hammy when I played football and I honestly can tell you a groin hampers a football player more than a hammy. Majority of football moves are groin related just like basket ball.

    Thats the problem with groins. Ive pulled mine a couple times, and even after it feels ok, it might not be 100% and its easy to pull again.

    I think most muscles, especially hammies, you can feel when they are healthy. Its a lot harder to do that with a groin.

    It's interesting how different oft-injured players get treated by fans. Some of them escape the china-doll-cut-him labels where others don't. And it doesn't seem to be related to draft status (Austin) or contract size (Johnson). Maybe it's based on expectations? Because Sims (who I like just fine, just like most of our players), between his concussions and his soft-tissue issues, is in that same territory, isn't he?

    Long shot athlete. A underdog story. We are all well-wishers at heart, aren't we?

    Yeah, I'm all for that. But that same applies for Matt Johnson, to a degree, who'd been in the injury doghouse long before this year's camp. Austin, too, though with his big contract, I can understand people getting frustrated there.
    But Sims is a guy many were hoping would win the starting job, and he's just been unable to stay healthy enough to compete.

    That will likely open the door for DeVonte Holloman if Sims can't go

    Also a huge Sims fan. Hope he gets healthy and back on the field soon. I love the guy's intensity. He isn't the biggest linebacker but he is a fearless hitter. Better a groin than a concussion at least.

    Sims may be in a "injury prone" boat, but Matt Johnson is in the Titanic.
