Cowboys second-year cornerback Morris Claiborne has been ruled out of the team’s Monday night match-up with the Bears in Oakland with a hamstring injury. It will mark the second straight game Claiborne has missed with the issue, and the fourth of the last five.
On the season, Claiborne has 24 tackles, six passes defensed and an interception. He also has a fumble recovery.
On the bright side of injury news, wide receiver and return man extraordinaire Dwayne Harris practiced over the weekend and could return against the Bears after missing the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Raiders with a hamstring issue of his own. He’ll likely be listed as questionable going into Monday.
Likely to return are middle linebackers Sean Lee and Justin Durant. Lee currently ranks second on the team in tackles with 93, and owns the team lead in interceptions with four.
