First-round pick Morris Claiborne is both bored and frustrated. At the rookie minicamp, all he could do was watch. Now, all he can do is condition.
Claiborne had the pins out of his left wrist two weeks ago, and now he can run. So he is.
"Basically I’ve just been running, doing a lot of running," Claiborne said Wednesday. "Oh, yeah, it's boring and frustrating."
Claiborne recently tweeted a picture of his wrist. The LSU product had almost forgotten what it looked like after requiring surgery to repair ligaments he tore against Alabama in November. He played in the final five games with the injury before having surgery this off-season.
"I was so excited to see it," he said. "I was scared to put water on it, because I haven’t had water on it in so long. I must have washed it a thousand times already."
He will wear a soft cast for two more weeks before beginning rehab. He doesn't expect to be fully cleared until just before the start of training camp in late July.
