Mo Claiborne Dealing with Shoulder Issues

Claiborne could miss the team's preseason matchup with the Ravens on Saturday



    It looks like Morris Claiborne, who was held out of the preseason opener a week ago, will be held out of the Cowboys’ second preseason game as well.

    The Cowboys will take on the Ravens at AT&T Stadium on Saturday night. On Thursday afternoon, at his final press conference in Oxnard before the team returns to Dallas, head coach Jason Garrett confirmed that Claiborne was dealing with a shoulder injury that had him day-to-day.

    “We’ll see--Mo probably won’t practice today, and I don’t know that he’ll be available for this game on Saturday,” Garrett said, per the team’s website. “We’ll see how he is day-to-day. He actually hurt his other shoulder the other day in practice.”

    All that said--and despite the fact that Claiborne has dealt with shoulder issues in the past, including just about all season last year--Garrett isn’t overly concerned about this particular injury.

    “I’m not sure how we’re describing it. It’s some kind of an AC joint separation, but we got good news about it yesterday, better than the initial reports thought it might be,” Garrett said. “We think it’s going to be more of a day-to-day, within-the-week type of thing.”
