Training camps kicked off recently, and camp injuries are already hurting teams. On Friday, Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback, Morris Claiborne, tweaked his knee in practice.
Claiborne reportedly left practice as a precautionary measure. The Cowboys claim an MRI on Claiborne's knee will also be a precautionary measure.
Cowboys owner and general manager, Jerry Jones, stated in regards to Claiborne's injury, "We are not concerned."
Jones' lack of concern over Claiborne's injury is stunning.
If the Cowboys want their first-round investment to start paying dividends in 2012, Claiborne is going to need to stay on the field.
The fledgling No. 6 overall pick sat out of organized team activities and rookie minicamps due to a wrist injury. Training camp is the first time the Cowboys took a look at their new toy, and Claiborne failed to impress his first week.
Scorched by rookies one-on-one, Claiborne appeared unable to cover anyone. Dez Bryant easily beat Claiborne several times.
