Not only has Claiborne been on the field, but he's been Dallas' best corner, improving from the confident play that he put on display in 2015.

    In another contract year, Claiborne's injury is tough, because the timetable for his return is unclear. Initially, the Cowboys feared that it was a sports hernia that Claiborne suffered in the fourth quarter.

    Garrett was also unsure if Claiborne will require surgery, but the team certainly does not anticipate him practicing this week, or playing in the coming weeks.

    Looking ahead to a Week 9 match up in Cleveland, the Cowboys certainly have enough depth in the secondary to still feel confident going against the win-less Browns. As expected, Garrett is counting on the guys that are already here to step up, even mentioning who Dallas went out and added to the practice squad last week.

    RJ I don’t see DMac not making this trip and Morris should be there too. Dunbar would be the odd man out and looking for another team if Jerry called and asked. He hasn’t shown anything special this season or enough for me to say keep him. I agree with Russ in I wonder what happened that the coaches fell out with Morris as we saw his playing time fall off in favor of Dunbar.
