Cowboys Keeping First Round Pick Morris Claiborne Out Until Training Camp

Dallas Cowboys first round draft pick Morris Claiborne will have to a wait a while longer before returning to action.

Well, the kid really wants to play; that much is obvious. Earlier this week, Dallas Cowboys first-round selection Morris "Pick Six" Claiborne announced that he was targeting the team's first mandatory mini-camp for his return to full action from ligament damage in his left wrist. The dates of June 12th - 14th were seared into every anxious Cowboys fans head as the timeframe when they would get their first reports of the secondary's newest toy; one of the key cogs in the transformation of a problem area into a unit of strength.

Apparently, team officials would like to be a bit more cautious with Claiborne and today announced that he would still be held out until training camp in July.

There doesn't seem to be any setback in the rehab, according to reports, just that Claiborne was a bit premature in announcing when he would return to action. That shouldn't be surprising considering he played the final five games of the collegiate season with the injury and didn't schedule surgery until NFL teams advised him to during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Broaddus also answered a question that's been floating around whenever it's mentioned that Claiborne hasn't been working out. The team hasn't started him running because the equipment being used to secure the ligaments could be jarred loose by the running motion.

So it appears we'll have to live a few more weeks getting to know the other rookies a little better instead of getting our first look at Claiborne in action. Cautious is probably the best approach in the long run, but boy can it be a little frustrating when you're waiting to unwrap a Christmas present.
