Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne believes he’ll be back after their bye week as he nurse a hamstring strain he suffered last week against the Lions. This means Claiborne should be back for their November 24th game against the Giants.
“I think the bye week is definitely going to be a big week for me in terms of getting back, as well,” Claiborne said via ESPNDallas.com. “If it was up to me, I would do everything I could to play this week, but I know that’s not happening. Probably not much of a chance next week, as well. Just continue to do the things I can do with rehab and hopefully I’ll feel better even sooner.”
The last thing the Cowboys need is to not have Claiborne in the lineup after getting torched last week.

The Dallas Cowboys listed DeMarcus Ware (thigh) as doubtful once again. This was expected to be an injury to last a few weeks but it is looking more long term. The team will also be without wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) and Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is out. Missing Mo Claiborne will hurt the team […]
Not long after the release of DT Jay Ratliff Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he wouldn’t comment because it was a “legal issue.” Now it appears that Jones green-lighted an article that shed some light on his comments.
“This absolutely should be a legal matter,” Jeff Sullivan of Dallas Cowboys Star Magazine writes in an article posted on the team’s official website...
Napoleon didn't know much about the NFL. But his view on mediocrity reads like a scouting report on the Dallas Cowboys.
"When small men attempt great enterprises, they always end by reducing themselves to the level of their mediocrity."
The NFL's great enterprise is the Super Bowl, though in Dallas a simple playoff win now qualifies. Much of the futility can be...
We've discovered a lot about Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant's passion to win this week.
But in case his actions on the field and sideline weren't convincing enough, Bryant speaks his mind in a short film by directed Davis Factor for Flaunt Magazine.

"I have a strong passion about the game," he says in the film. "That&...
The Cowboys got some good news on the injury front, for once. Safety Danny McCray returned to practice Friday.
McCray, who was sidelined with hip and toe injuries, was only a limited participant and is listed as questionable (50-50) for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
But if McCray, who also plays special teams, can contribute as a backup at free safety it will bolster the...
IRVING, Texas When the Cowboys scored 48 points in a loss to Denver, it supposedly woke up the offense.
Well, the offense has been in a slumber lately.
Two weeks ago, the Cowboys scored just 17 points at Philadelphia. They were also 5 of 16 on third down conversions.
Last Sunday at Detroit, the Cowboys gained just 268 yards and were just 3 of 13 on third downs.
With audio now available to back up Dez Bryant's claim that he was saying only positive things when he was seen shouting at Tony Romo in a sideline rant last weekend, the Dallas quarterback was ready to offer a passionate defense of his top receiver.
Romo took care of it without the arm-waving that landed the emotional Bryant in the headlines again.
"Does he need to sometimes...
Of course they did. Of course the Dallas Cowboys blew a pair of 10-point fourth-quarter leads in excruciating fashion at Detroit on Sunday, losing 31-30 to the Lions to fall back to .500, reaching midseason at 4-4.
Back to .500 is the Cowboys’ default setting. How can we even be surprised at this point? It’s just the natural order of things in Dallas. Seasons come and seasons...
Jay Ratliff continues to tell people that he plans to play this season, despite being released by Dallas for his inability to get healthy.

Former Cowboy Safety and three-time Superbowl Championsip winner Darren Woodson gave his take on this week’s outburst from Dez Bryant, calling the media “unfair”. He agrees with what Steeler's Safety Ryan Clark a lot of people are saying are saying about the negative slant that some media put on Dez for being emotional and passionate about the game. Woodson, like many...
Last week: 11 (-1)
You can call it a crushing loss for the Cowboys, but they did not deserve to win that game. They were outgained by 355 yards, only the 24th time that had happened to a team since 1989 and lost despite winning the turnover battle by 4, only the 20th time that had happened to a team since 1989. They won’t always be able to force turnovers and they have...

Obviously I know if you are a die hard Cowboys fan (if you're not, you're probably not reading this site) then that loss stings in a major way. There are so many things we could look at and point a finger to and have a legit reason for that line of thinking.
How can one guy get 329 yards? Why can't the offense get one first down to seal the game? Tyron why would...
Former Dallas Cowboys lineman Dave Widell once said, "Turnovers are like ex-wives. The more you have, the more they cost you." Texas Tech's minus-8 turnover margin is ranked No. 103 out of 123 FBS schools. If the Red Raiders want to make a push to win the Big 12 championship, they are going to have to reverse this trend, starting this week with Oklahoma State.
