Aikman Cleared To Play


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman was cleared to play Wednesday after an MRI showed he suffered no damage from a blow to the head.

Cowboys officials said the results of Tuesday's precautionary MRI show Aikman did not have a concussion and that he will be able to play in Dallas' Monday night game at Minnesota.

Indianapolis cornerback Jeff Burris rammed his helmet into Aikman's on a sack early in the fourth quarter of the Colts' 32-24 victory on Sunday. Aikman sat out one series, sniffed some smelling salts, then returned.
