Dallas Likely Will Lose Morris Claiborne for the Season


Morris ClaiborneThe Dallas Cowboys are fresh from crushing the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football 38-17. However, as good as the Cowboys played, not everything was positive following the game.

The Cowboys fear that Morris Claiborne their talented cornerback tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the game.

Jerry Jones, the Cowboys team owner and its General Manager said he was worried the cornerback would be lost for the season.

Claiborne who was hurt during the first quarter of play will have an MRI on Monday to see if in fact the initial diagnosis of an ACL tear is confirmed. If it is then Claiborne’s season is finished.

Jones said that the MRI would give them a final diagnosis but as of now, it does not look too good. However, Jones added he hoped they would be surprised in the morning and find out it was not a tear.

The injury to Claiborne was a painful way to end a difficult and tumultuous week for the former No. 1 pick for Dallas and sixth overall in the draft of 2012.

He left the training facility of Dallas in a hast on Tuesday and skipped the teams walk through practice and meeting, when he was informed that he would be benched in favor of Orlando Scandrick.

Claiborne eventually returned and met with Jason Garrett the head coach later that same night and then gave an apology to all his teammates prior to meetings on Wednesday morning.

Bruce Carter one of the Cowboys starting outside linebackers will have an MRI as well on Monday to make a determination of how severe his right quadriceps strain is.

Carter was hurt while running after Khiry Robinson in the fourth quarter Sunday night.

Dallas hopes the injury Carter suffered will not cause the leading tackler on the team to miss a game.

Carter said it would depend upon how sore he was on Tuesday. He passed some tests on Sunday night as far as strength and hopes Monday the MRI will show not much of a strain.
