Dallas Cowboys logoRookie cornerback Morris Claiborne should be back in the starting lineup on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Claiborne missed last week’s game with a concussion. But after being medically cleared and practicing fully all week, head coach Jason Garrett says Claiborne should be ready.

“We responded well last week without him,” Garrett said. “Mo has had several good days of practice and we anticipate him playing. He’s been a big part of what we’ve done all year.”

Claiborne is listed as probable on the Cowboys’ injury report.

Also listed as probable on the injury report are wide receiver Dez Bryant (finger), running back Felix Jones (knee), running back DeMarco Murray (foot), safety Charlie Peprah (foot) and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (elbow).

Inside linebacker Ernie Sims, who missed most of last week’s game with a concussion, has worked his way back to questionable for the Saints game. He completed a full practice for the first time on Friday.

Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree did not practice on Friday for the third straight day due to an illness and is listed as questionable.

Nose tackle Jay Ratliff, who is coming off sports hernia surgery, has not practiced all week and is the only active played ruled out for the Saints.
