Morris Claiborne not ready to put on pads
Claiborne, a first-round cornerback who is recovering from a sprained MCL in his left knee, has participated in the walkthrough sessions the last couple of days. He is not ready to practice full speed yet, however.
“He's working his way back and he's feeling better,” said coach Jason Garrett, who has ruled Claiborne out of Monday night's preseason opener. “We'll anticipate him working back into it here in the next few days."
Claiborne spent much of Thursday afternoon’s practice working with director of rehabilitation Britt Brown on resistance cords, running, backpedaling, planting and cutting.
“I felt pretty good coming out of the breaks and stuff,” Claiborne said. “It’s better.”
