ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Pittsburgh cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke left Sunday's game at Dallas after hurting his right shoulder on a special teams play.
Van Dyke didn't return after getting hurt on the Steelers' first punt less than 2 minutes into the game trying to tackle returner Dwayne Harris.
Dallas starting linebacker Ernie Sims sustained a concussion. The Cowboys said he took a blow to the head on another play in the first quarter, and said after halftime he wouldn't return.
After Harris got away from Van Dyke and was quickly tackled by another Pittsburgh player, Van Dyke remained sitting on the field. He walked off the field with two trainers.
The Steelers initially said Van Dyke was doubtful to return, but a few minutes later said he was out for the game.
Pittsburgh receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who played at nearby SMU, sustained a rib injury before halftime. He was on the sideline in the second half, but hadn't been back in the game.
There apparently is no offseason for Michal Kempny this year, especially after tearing his left hamstring this past season.
At the Caps MedStar IcePlex, Kempny was seen putting in work doing bleacher runs on Tuesday.
His hamstring looks great.
Thank goodness he is inside because the temperature outside has not been conducive to doing bleacher runs.
The Caps defenseman suffered a lower-body hamstring injury on March 20 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tearing the hamstring forced him to have surgery and miss the remainder of the season.
His absence was clearly missed for the Caps in their playoff matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. Before the injury, he scored six goals and recorded 19 assists in 71 games for the Capitals.
Now, just to see him return to the ice.

For the second time in his career, Trea Turner has hit for the cycle against the Rockies. This time, he did it in Nats Park.
Turner started his day in the first inning with a solo shot to left-center to open the scoring for the Nationals. A fortunate bounce yielded an infield single in the second inning, and he smashed a liner into the right-field corner in the fifth. A double for most players, Turner's trademark speed enabled him to stretch it into a triple.
With a comfortable 8-0 lead in the seventh, Turner sent a 98 mph fastball into the gap in right-center field, completing the cycle and capping off an incredible night for the Nats.
Turner is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season, and the 27th since 1908 to do it multiple times in his career.
