IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne stood at his locker after Wednesday's practice with his left arm still showing an imprint from the protective brace he has been wearing. Claiborne's left shoulder popped out of place while he was making a tackle during Sunday night's 36-31 win over the New York Giants. The sixth overall pick in the 2012 draft was limited during Wednesday's practice. Claiborne worked on ball drills but did not participate in the full contact portions. "When I first started off it was a little tight but once I got going and got it loosened up a little bit, it felt pretty good," Claiborne said. "I don't have full range of motion with the brace on, but it was good enough that I could still catch balls." Claiborne, who plans on making contact during practice at some point this week, is hopeful that he can play Sunday in Kansas City. And Claiborne says understands that Chiefs players will be testing his shoulder if he's on the field. "Something like that scares you when you just come back from it and it's easier for it to happen again," he said. "I just have to protect it the best way I can."
