    Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne is in a familiar and frustrating place as the team opens its offseason conditioning program on Monday--sidelined as he recovers from an injury.

    Claiborne is still recovering from the most serious injury of his injury-hampered career, a torn left patellar tendon suffered last September in a victory over the Saints. He will miss the offseason program and the team’s mini-camps for the third time in four years, but hopes to return in time for training camp.

    "I can't wait," Claiborne said, per FOX Sports Southwest. "Like I said, it's one of those things. It's a day-by-day thing. I'm getting better each and every day; getting stronger each and every day. You know, that's all I can ask for at this moment."

    Claiborne is still a ways from being medically cleared, but he recently starting running again, a big stride on his road to recovery.

    "I was at a point where people thought I wasn't going to walk again," Claiborne said. "I'm in a better place now in my life and in coping with my injuries and coming back from them."
