So when is this guy supposed to practice? or his injury is alot worse than they are saying.
He ran for the first time in two weeks yesterday, and there's no doubt he'll play week 1. From my scorecenter update, to you.
I hear amputation is scheduled for tomorrow. No worries, though. They are planning to give him a bionic replacement.
Morris Claiborne makes progress with knee injury, says there’s no doubt he’ll play in the season opener
“I’ve been feeling good with the running and the cutting,” Claiborne said. “I feel like I’ve made some big strides this week to getting me back on the field.
“I know it’s a no-go for this week, but hopefully next weekend I’ll be back out here.”
Claiborne said he was looking forward to this week because he’s been having trouble getting the knee fully-healed.
“As I work out, it would flame up on me or something like that,” he said. “I really wanted to see what it was going to do this week and I tried to give it everything I got as far as cutting and planting, trying to come out and drive it. And everything went good.

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but worth it...
Not an ideal situation but we need him healthy for regular season.
This is either over the top coddling, or not a "thump on the knee".
I'd almost rather he get spot duty if he can't get time in before the opener.
The Giants have good WRs and he doesn't need to get his first taste of significant action against Cruz or Nicks. I'm actually pleased enough with the defense as a whole that I would have him get part time duty in the opener.
6th overall pick in last years draft. Get him out there.
Good to hear he is pushing it in recent days and the knee is responding good. As for him playing this Saturday I'm really not that concened I would rather wait and let him get to full strenght
Settle Down J.P.
That is what Lt. Dan got, now he has magic legs.
It's called tendonitis.
As gentle as our dear CB is it would be best to save him for the season opener.
I actually think Claiborne will have a big year for the Cowboys as he heads into his 2nd year.
I hope you are right. I worry about him more than I do the o-line if you can believe that. I actually believe Moore is a better fit in this defense than Claiborne because of his physicality. He'll never start over Claiborne, though, as long as both remain healthy.
I don't think Bubba approves.
Claiborne is missing key reps in this preseason that he really needs but more important, he needs to build up his strength and conditioning in his game...
I just don't see anything that Mo has done last year or this years TC to say he is going to have a big year. He has poor coverage skills and tackling skills. Just another really good college player that finds the NFL to big for them. Wish it wasn't this way but his portfolio of work in the NFL proves it beyond a doubt, if one is honest with themselves they can see it.
