Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne was forced to leave practice early on Wednesday after twisting his knee, but the team was unsure if the injury was serious enough to warrant an MRI, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said.
"[Head athletic trainer] Jim Maurer felt pretty good about it," Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. "Our head trainer looked at it. Certainly it was enough to get examined. He's been one of our highlights."
Indeed, Claiborne seems to have turned over a new leaf during the first week of camp. According to all accounts, Claiborne has been playing with a newfound sense of confidence and a massive chip on his shoulder. In fact, on the first day of fully padded practice, Claiborne got into a scrape with receiver Terrance Williams.
The team is hopeful that, armed with this new attitude, Claiborne will begin to live up to expectations--something that he’s failed to do since Dallas traded up to land him with the sixth overall pick back in 2012.
