Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Sits out entire postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne accrued 14 tackles (nine solo) across eight regular-season contests in 2019. He did not make an appearance across three postseason games.

Claiborne missed the first four contests of the season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist last July, and a shoulder injury sustained Week 13 later sidelined him for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. He practiced in full prior to the AFC Championship Game, however, an indication that he's managed to return to full health. During the eight games Claiborne did suit up, he was limited to a depth role in Kansas City's secondary. The 30-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) was a full participant at Friday's practice.

The 29-year-old hasn't seen game action since Week 13 due to the shoulder issue, but he appears on track to be available for the AFC Championship Game. Kendall Fuller should continue handling nickel duties while Claiborne serves as a depth cornerback.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Won't face Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Claiborne began this week not practicing for non-injury reasons, but he'll miss his fifth straight contest with the shoulder issue. Kendall Fuller should continue to handle duties at nickel cornerback while Rashad Fenton serves in a depth role.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) won't practice Wednesday due to non-injury reasons, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Claiborne missed the last four regular-season games due to a shoulder injury, but his absence from Wednesday's practice doesn't appear to be related. The Chiefs practice Thursday and Friday as well, so if he can return in some capacity, it'll be a good sign for his status for Sunday's divisional-round clash against the Texans.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Sitting out Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) won't suit up in Sunday's divisional matchup versus the Chargers.

This news isn't surprising considering Claiborne was downgraded to no practice for Friday's session and has missed the last three games while managing the injury. In his stead, Kendall Fuller has been filling in and is expected to continue to do so.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Claiborne has missed three games with the issue but is making progress. In the meantime, Kendall Fuller has been filling in.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Out for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) is listed as out for Sunday night's game against the Bears.

Claiborne has not practiced at all this week and accordingly will sit this one out. It will be his third straight absence.

December 13, 2019 06:40 PM
Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Declared out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) is ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Still unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Claiborne didn't practice at all last week and was ultimately inactive in this past Sunday's win over the Patriots. He'll need to return to the practice field by Friday to have a chance at suiting up Week 15 against the Broncos.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at New England, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Claiborne was unable to practice this week due to the shoulder issue and will be sidelined Week 14. Rashad Fenton (hamstring) is also out, leading the Chiefs to promote Alex Brown from the practice squad for cornerback depth.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Will watch practice from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) won't practice Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

This appears to be a new injury since Claiborne posted a season-high 40-percent snap share in Week 13's win over the Raiders. With Rashad Fenton (hamstring) also sitting out, the Chiefs only have three healthy cornerbacks for Wednesday's drills.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Returns to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne's roster exemption was lifted Thursday and the Chiefs added him to the 53-man squad.

The veteran cornerback has completed his four-game suspension, so the Chiefs released Jeff Allen to make room for Clairborne on the active roster. He'll play a rotational or depth role in Kansas City's secondary going forward.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Reinstated from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne has completed his four-game suspension and is eligible to return to action for the Chiefs in Week 5, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Claiborne is eligible to resume practicing with the Chiefs immediately due to his roster exemption, and the team will have until Oct. 7 to clear a spot on the roster and activate him. The veteran cornerback projects to play a rotational role in Kansas City's secondary.

Chiefs' Morris Claiborne: Joins Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (suspension) and the Chiefs agreed to terms on a contract Thursday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Claiborne projects to bolster Kansas City's secondary as a rotational player, but he will first need to conclude his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The veteran cornerback played nine games for the Jets last season, recording 57 tackles, 14 defended passes and two interceptions.

Morris Claiborne: Officially suspended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Claiborne's reported appeal of the suspension was to no avail. The veteran cornerback will likely find it difficult to catch on with a team until after his suspension has run its course.

Morris Claiborne: Facing suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport also reports that Claiborne will appeal the suspension. The 29-year-old visited the Giants in early April, but the looming possibility of a suspension could help explain why he has yet to find a team for 2019, even after notching 57 total tackles, 14 pass breakups, two interceptions and a touchdown over 15 games for the Jets last season.

Morris Claiborne: Visiting with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne recently met with the Giants, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

One of the top players left on the free-agent market, Claiborne totaled 100 tackles, 22 pass breakups and three interceptions with the Jets in 30 games over the past two seasons. His durability over that time might actually be the most impressive achievement, and the cornerback will likely point to that as a reason why he's now deserving of a long-term contract after missing 33 of his first 80 career games with the Cowboys. The 2012 first-round pick would be a nice fit alongside the Giants' current No. 1 corner, Janoris Jenkins.

Jets' Morris Claiborne: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

This is just a procedural move to create some roster space for the Jets, as Claiborne had already been ruled out for Sunday's season finale. The 28-year-old finishes the 2018 season with 57 tackles (44 solo), two interceptions and one defensive touchdown in 15 games.

Jets' Morris Claiborne: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne (shoulder) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Claiborne was added to the injury report Wednesday with the shoulder issue and did not practice this week. Buster Skrine is likely to step into the starting role at cornerback opposite Trumaine Johnson in the season finale.

Jets' Morris Claiborne: Nursing shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claiborne did not practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

Just exactly when Claiborne sustained the shoulder injury is not readily apparent. What is apparent, however, is that his availability for Sunday's game against New England appears to be in jeopardy. His progressions, or lack thereof, over the next few days should provide more clarity for his situation.
