It’s unclear how much rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne will play in the Cowboys’ preseason finale against Miami on Wednesday, if at all, but the sixth overall pick in last April’s draft is preparing as though he will see a decent sized workload against the ‘Phins.
Claiborne, who said this week that he is finally fully healthy following offseason wrist surgery and a sprained MCL suffered early on in camp, is open to getting in the reps in the final exhibition because he believes the experience will only make him better--and beyond that, he believes he is a different (read: better) player now than he was just a few weeks ago.
“I feel like I’m taking strides each and every day,” Claiborne said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I feel like I’m a totally different player from when I first started camp. That’s making progress and all I can do is go out each and every day working.”
