Morris Claiborne starting camp with second team?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Orlando Scandrick figures to have a starting job at cornerback ahead of Morris Claiborne when the Cowboys open training camp this summer, ESPN believes. Claiborne was benched in favor of Scandrick last season, proving that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett isn't afraid to make a big roster decision. The Cowboys want Claiborne to prove his worth in camp this summer.

Cowboys need big improvement from Morris Claiborne
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys are counting on cornerback Morris Claiborne getting stronger and accelerating his development in his third season.

"We feel like he is a guy who is very talented and still needs to grow and develop," coach Jason Garrett told the Dallas Morning News. “He has certainly shown flashes of the player that we drafted with the sixth pick of the draft a couple of years ago. He has a very good feel for covering guys and just plays that position at a high level. We have a lot of confidence in Mo."

Claiborne has missed seven games due to injuries and lost his starting job to Orlando Scandrick last season. “He needs to get stronger as a player," Garrett told the paper. "He is working very hard to do that. It’s a hard position to transition into in the NFL.

"We have asked him to do a lot, coming in here on day one, being a starter for us. But as much as anything else, get healthy, get stronger and keep learning and grow as a player. We have a lot of confidence in him."

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”
