Claiborne Might Miss Steelers Game

Rookie corner Morris Claiborne is dealing with lingering concussion symptoms



    Rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne left last week’s win over the Bengals in Cincinnati very much banged-up. He had a facial laceration, which kept him on the sidelines for a few plays, and we learned later that he had a concussion. Now, it appears that he may miss the Steelers game with the concussion.

    It comes down to a concussion test, which Claiborne will have to pass in order to get on the field.

    “Hopefully, when I do that [last test], I’ll ace it,” Claiborne said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Right now, I’m feeling pretty good. Right now, it’s still a day-by-day process and see how I feel up until game time. Right now, I don’t know where it’s going to be.”

    It wasn’t a Cincinnati Bengal that caused Claiborne’s concussion. It was an unintentional collision with safety and fellow LSU alum Danny McCray. Claiborne said the only other concussion he’s suffered came from one of his LSU teammates last year.

    “I’m always getting hit by LSU safeties,” Claiborne said.
