CB Morris Claiborne Hoping to Return Before the Regular Season Ends

Injured corner back Morris Claiborne is getting healthier.

A familiar face rejoined the team on Thursday, although he didn't do much on the field. Morris Claiborne warmed up with his teammates at practice before doing drills on the side.

The cornerback is progressing from a late October groin injury.

At the time of the injury, surgery would have ended his season. So, he opted for rest and rehab, and that seems to be working.

"Right now, we're just giving it time to continue to heal. I haven't got a MRI, but just off my feeling, it has to be healing right because I'm able to move around and do certain things," said Claiborne.

The injury was so difficult to diagnose that Claiborne never had a time table to return. He might now, because he's confident that he'll be back.

"The plan is to be back for the regular season. We have to get to where we can practice first and then once we start practicing we can go from there. But like I said, it's a day-by-day thing. I can't tell you if it's the next week or the week after that," said Claiborne.
