Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne believes he let his teammates down when he stormed out of Valley Ranch on Tuesday. For their part, Claiborne’s teammates have welcomed him back and are ready--like head coach Jason Garrett--to put the incident behind them.
“We are like a family,” said Orlando Scandrick, the man who leapfrogged Claiborne on the depth chart, per ESPN Dallas. “We all support him. We all went through tough times. I’m sitting here in front of this camera as someone who has been benched before after a game in my second year in the league. I know how that feels.”
First-year defensive captain Justin Durant added that he respects Claiborne for returning to the facility and apologizing to his teammates.
“I’m OK with just trying to move past it,” Durant said. “It’s a tough situation. At the same time, he’s a man. He handled it the way he did. He came back, he realized what was wrong and he apologized. So I’ve got to respect that.”
