Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne has been placed on injured reserve since suffering a season-ending knee injury.
The Dallas Cowboys have enjoyed a fast start to their season as they hold a 3-1 record, but their season has not been without drama.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne continued to struggle when filling in for Orlando Scandrick as a starter. When he was benched, Claiborne stormed out of the team’s practices before returning.
The 2012 first-round pick’s season became even more rough as he sustained a season-ending torn patellar tendon, and the Cowboys have announced that they will place him on injured reserve.
Here is a tweet from NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport confirming the Cowboys’ decision on Claiborne.
