Soreness in knee still affecting Morris Claiborne


Last week, Dallas Cowboys corner back Morris Claiborne suffered a knee injury, and is still experiencing issues. He is dealing with soreness in his knee, and was forced to miss yet another day of practice because of it. It is unclear if he will be ready for Dallas’ next preseason game at Arizona on Saturday.

In an interview with ESPN, Claiborne is obviously upset that this injury has been lasting this long.

I believe anything is a setback. This is a big setback. It might not be to somebody else, but it is to me. I have big goals for myself.

 

At this point, I’m just following directions, just going through the treatments. I thought I would be ready the next day and obviously I wasn’t.

It’s hard because the Cowboys could obviously use Claiborne in the backfield. After all, the Cowboys made a big move in the 2012 draft to grab the corner back from LSU with the sixth overall pick, so it’s apparent thatthey want him back as soon as possible.

There has been no need for a X-Ray or any type of MRI, primarily because the pain is only from knee soreness, there is no tear or strain associated with the injury.
