Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne returns to practice

When the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Detroit Lions back on October 27, they also lost starting cornerback Morris Claiborne to a hamstring injury. Claiborne has been out of action since as the team’s defense continues to get hit hard with injuries, but he was able to finally return to the practice field on Wednesday, which is great news for his availability on Sunday.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Claiborne was joined on the field by defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who didn’t participate in the team’s workout Monday after aggravating a strained right quadriceps against New Orleans on Nov. 10.

With Ware and Claiborne back, the only two defenders from the team’s battered defensive unit not participating in drills were linebackers Justin Durant and Sean Lee.

All of the offensive players were active in practice during the portion that was open to the media.

With the news earlier today that owner Jerry Jones is optimistic about the return of star linebacker Sean Lee, it appears that the Cowboys defense could be closing in on full strength which would be a huge boost as they make an effort to go on a late season run and take home the NFC East crown.
