Morris Claiborne injury: Cowboys CB suffers setback with hamstring against Giants

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

The Cowboys are missing a part of their secondary.

The Cowboys will need to test their cornerback depth moving forward after Morris Claiborne suffered a setback with his hamstring in the team's Week 12 game against the Giants. The injury was reported by FOX at the end of the fourth quarter, and he will not return to the game. Claiborne missed two games this season with the very same hamstring injury.

Dallas will now rely on veteran Orlando Scandrick across from Brandon Carr at cornerback. Claiborne has recorded just 23 tackles and one interception in eight games this season. He has only started five of those games. Scandrick has played mostly in the slot and has secured 39 tackles, a sack and two interceptions this season. He has been with the Cowboys for six seasons and has started 28 games during his career.

The Cowboys are currently in control of their matchup against the Giants with a 21-13 lead in the fourth quarter.
