Morris Claiborne injury: Dallas cornerback questionable to return to Cowboys-Giants game

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Cornerback Morris Claiborne is questionable to return to the Cowboys-Giants game following a left shoulder injury in the third quarter.

Dallas may be in trouble in the secondary after losing second-year cornerback Morris Claiborne in the the third quarter of Cowboys' game against the Giants on Sunday night. Claiborne lunged at the lower body of Giants' tight end Brandon Myers midway through the third quarter and seemed to injure his upper body on the tackle attempt. Claiborne was seen in obvious pain as he laid face-first on the turf of AT&T Stadium. NBC's Michelle Tafoya reports that the LSU alum injured his left shoulder on the play and that he is questionable to return.

The Cowboys' training staff assisted Claiborne off of the field during an injury timeout. Rookie cornerback B.W. Webb entered the game to replace Claiborne. Immediately following Claiborne's exit, Giants' quarterback Eli Manning led a quick touchdown drive to wide receiver Victor Cruz.

The Cowboys currently lead the Giants 30-17 early into the fourth quarter.
