Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told the Dallas Morning News that “wouldn’t anticipate” cornerback Morris Claiborne playing in their preseason finale on Thursday night.
Claiborne, who returned to practice this week, hasn’t played in the preseason after he jammed his left knee in a training camp practice. Claiborne only played in two preseason games last year during his rookie season.
Garrett said he doesn’t expect many starters playing against Houston. Undrafted free agent Alex Tanney is expected to get most of the work at quarterback for the Cowboys on Thursday.
Right now it’s all about making sure the Claiborne as well as the other starters are ready for their opener against the Giants.

Barring further setbacks, Ratliff will be eligible for week 7 @ Philly (Oct. 20th) Expect to see Nick Hayden to take over alongside Jason Hatcher at the DT position.

The Dallas Cowboys fought with OL Doug Free over a pay cut over the offseason, but they are happy they were able to work out a deal and not cut the veteran. In one of the more surprising moves of the preseason, Free moved from tackle to guard (a position he has never played at any level of football) and is doing so well that the team is considering keeping him there for good.
The Dallas Cowboys placed veteran DT Jay Ratliff on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday.
There was hope that Ratliff would be able to return from a hamstring injury in time for the team’s Week 1 match up against the Giants, but that unfortunately wasn’t the case.
