DENVER (AP) _ Dallas quarterback Troy Aikman sprained his left shoulder and left the game in the second quarter of the Cowboys' game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Aikman injured the shoulder during a 6-yard scramble with about nine minutes remaining before halftime. Aikman dived into a pile of Broncos and got up slowly. He was taken to the locker room for X-rays.

Aikman was 5-of-12 for 88 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game. He threw for 256 yards and two TDs and ran for two more scores last week in a 38-10 win over Arizona.
