Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne believes he’ll be just fine following a kind of scary injury in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens in Baltimore.
Claiborne returned to the game in the second half, so that the injury isn’t thought to be serious isn’t THAT surprising. But if you watched the game, you probably experienced the same “OH NO” moment that we did when the sixth overall pick in the 2012 Draft fell while trying to cover Torrey Smith, clutching at his knee and writhing on the ground.
Prior to returning in the fourth quarter, Claiborne had his knee wrapped, and he said the knee was “sore” following the 31-29 loss. Claiborne has already dealt with a minor knee injury in his short time with the Cowboys (a sprained MCL that cut his preseason short), but maintains that in this case, it isn’t as bad as it looked.
“I just twisted it up on the turf a little bit,” Claiborne said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’ll be alright.”
