Second-year cornerback Morris Claiborne believes he’ll be back on the field soon after missing five of the last six games with a hamstring injury--which is good, seeing as how there are only two weeks left and the team is in serious danger of missing the playoffs for a fourth straight season.
“I’m confident, but you just have to take the right precautions with a hamstring injury,” Claiborne said, per the Dallas Morning News. “You never know how it’s going to turn out. It can feel great and you go out and play and then all of a sudden, make a wrong move and you’re going back over it again.”
Claiborne has dealt with a lot this month. He welcomed his daughter, Madison, into the world, and mourned the loss of his father, Robert Owens. Through the tumult of life, Claiborne has been focused on getting back on the football field.
“I’m coming along pretty good,” he said. “I had a good week last week and trying to build on that this week…I’m supposed to be doing some stuff today and we’ll just continue to build on it and see how it goes.”
