Dallas Cowboys’ Morris Claiborne should play Sunday


Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered a dislocated shoulder in Sunday night’s win over the New York Giants. One of several injuries the Cowboys sustained during the game.

According to the Dallas Morning News: “Morris Claiborne … should play against Kansas City, a source said.”

There were reports earlier today that Claiborne would wear a harness against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday to protect his injured shoulder.

From Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Cornerback Morris Claiborne will wear a harness against the Chiefs to protect his dislocated shoulder.

Considering the amount of injuries sustained during the game to key personnel the Cowboys are coming through pretty unscathed. It was suspected that Tony Romo had broken ribs but his X-rays came back negative. Dez Bryant was diagnosed with a sprained foot after X-rays came back negative but he is still awaiting the results of an MRI.

The injury to Claiborne came in the third quarter of the game. He left the field for several plays and had his shoulder popped back into place by Dr. Dan Cooper. Afterwards he returned to and finished the game. Claiborne has been battling injuries and missed a lot of training camp with a knee injury, he’ll likely be limited in practice this week.
