The Dallas Cowboys got some good news on the injury front this week.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Cowboys' COO Stephen Jones said that veteran cornerback Morris Claiborne is on schedule with the rehabilitation from his groin injury and has suffered no setbacks.
"We're starting to feel pretty confident we may see [Morris Claiborne] again this season." said Jones.
The injury was particularly gruesome, as it was revealed Claiborne tore a portion of his bone off his pelvis when he was injured on Oct. 30 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He managed to avoid surgery, and the piece of bone is set to heal on it's own over time.
As per Mike Leslie of WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas, the Cowboys remain confident that Claiborne could make his return to the field prior to the end of the regular season.
This would be a huge boost to the Cowboys' secondary.
Prior to the injury, the sixth-year pro was enjoying one of the best seasons of his career and recorded 26 tackles and an interception in seven games. It's certainly a frustrating situation, Claiborne has battled injury his entire career to get to this point; even admitting at one point he considered retiring altogether from the NFL.
