Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne remains sore after spraining the AC joint in his shoulder earlier in camp, but he’s feeling better each day and says he’ll play in Thursday’s preseason finale if the coaching staff wants him to see some live snaps before the regular season opener.
Claiborne has missed all three of the Cowboys’ preseason games thus far, with the shoulder issue and, earlier, a case of tendinitis in his knee.
“It’s an AC sprain, so you know it’s going to be sore,” Claiborne said, per ESPN Dallas. “I don’t know if you ever had one before, but they get pretty sore. After a week or so, I don’t think it’ll be healed. It’s better, definitely better. I have more range of motion in it. I can reach up now. It’s getting better each and every day. It’s up to the coaches [at] game time.”
If Claiborne does play Thursday, it’ll mark just the third preseason contest he’s participated in over his career.
“I don’t know how many snaps they want me to play,” Claiborne said, “but whatever they want me to do, I’m up to do it.”
