Claiborne (knee) will not practice Tuesday and will also miss the Cowboys' preseason opener Thursday, the team's official website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Claiborne is dealing with knee tendinitis, which kept him out of action last week as well. Further, for a player that underwent offseason shoulder and finger surgeries to go with lingering hamstring issues, another injury setback is hardly encouraging for Claiborne, who also lost his starting position to Orlando Scandrick last season. Still, the 2012 No. 6 overall pick in only entering his third NFL season, so returning healthy would be the first step in possibly resurrecting his future prospects.
Claiborne (knee) is expected to return to practice on Saturday, Rowan Kavner of DallasCowboys.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Claiborne says the issue is just lingering tendinitis he's been dealing with since his rookie season, and not a new injury. While that's certainly better news than an ACL tear, the fact that the oft-injured corner has a chronic, if manageable, knee problem makes it tough to project him for a full 16 games.
Claiborne injured his knee late in Wednesday's practice and was sent for X-rays, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Claiborne had an up-and-down rookie season, recording 55 tackles and one interception, but the sixth overall pick in 2012 showed plenty of potential and looks poised to take a big step forward. He may not put up IDP-worthy numbers, but he'll be a key part of the Cowboys' team defense.

2012

The Cowboys traded up in the first round to nab Claiborne, the player they thought was the one difference-maker available at cornerback in this year's draft. He'll start opposite free agent Brandon Carr in Dallas' revamped secondary and has both the ball-hawking skills and willingness to get physical that make him a potential IDP star if he adapts to the NFL quickly.
