Cowboys vs. Saints: Morris Claiborne expects to play Sunday

Tom Pennington

Dallas Cowboys' cornerback Morris Claborne expects to play Sunday after missing last week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a concussion.

Dallas Cowboys' cornerback Morris Claiborne expects to play this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints according to a report from Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News.

Claiborne suffered a concussion in the Cowboys' game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 9 after he collided with teammate Danny McCray. In addition to the concussion, Claiborne needed stitches to repair a cut on his lip. Claiborne was still experiencing concussion-like symptoms during practice last Thursday and was held out of last Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers as a precaution. Claiborne did tell Machota that he has not experienced any symptoms since last Thursday.

With the high-powered Saints offense coming to Cowboys Stadium this week, Claiborne will be a welcome addition to the Cowboys secondary.

The rookie from LSU started all 13 games for the Cowboys this year before sitting out last week. Claiborne has recorded 40 tackles for the Cowboys this year along with one interception.
