After missing nearly three weeks with what was described as a “jammed” knee, the Dallas Cowboys got second-year cornerback Morris Claiborne back on Monday.
Claiborne himself has said that he expects to make some big strides in his sophomore season, after grading himself rather harshly for his rookie performance, and he put together a good camp when he was healthy. But even before suffering the knee injury, the LSU product had a bout of migraine headaches that kept him sidelined for close to a week.
Claiborne missed a total of two preseason games with the knee, and it seems kind of doubtful that he’ll play much if at all in the preseason finale against the Texans on Thursday.
Also returning on Monday were veteran linebacker Ernie Sims and second-year wide receiver Cole Beasley. Beasley suffered a foot injury in the August 9 exhibition loss, and Sims suffered a minor groin injury in practice a few days after that.
