The Dallas Cowboys traded up in the 2012 NFL Draft to make former LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne the sixth-overall selection. Unfortunately for Claiborne and the Cowboys, he has been plagued by minor injuries this offseason and it has stopped him from participating in all of the workouts.
First it was a wrist injury that held Claiborne out and now a sore knee is limiting him during training camp.
Claiborne injured his knee on Wednesday and held out of Thursday’s practice. The knee was still aching on Friday so a MRI is coming on the sore knee, per ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones acknowledged the injury but did not appear too concerned.
“He had a little twinge there in his knee and our trainers thought it would be best to give him the afternoon off,” he said. “At this time we are not concerned.”
After the results of the MRI have been revealed, it looks like Jones was right not to worry. Claiborne should miss limited time.
