The Dallas Cowboys’ wounded secondary will be without cornerback Morris Claiborne once again in the preseason when they face off against the Baltimore Raves in Week 2 this weekend.
Claiborne, who is firmly in the starting lineup thanks to a four-game suspension handed down to Orlando Scandrick for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, was injured during Wednesday’s practice session when he fell onto his shoulder.
The former first-round pick does not seem to be seriously injured, so he should be considered day-to-day.
While the injury does not appear to be serious, Claiborne did suffer a shoulder injury last season so the team needs to hope that this does not turn out to be a regular issue like Miles Austin and his hamstrings.
If Claiborne can remain healthy, he will be a huge part of the Cowboys’ secondary in the first quarter of the season when they take on the San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints to open the season with Scandrick on the sidelines.
Morris Claiborne won’t practice Thursday after hurting right shoulder Wednesday, and isn’t expected to play Saturday vs. Baltimore Ravens.
