Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne, the team’s first-round draft pick, said Thursday’s second day of practice “was a little easier” than his initial workout Wednesday. Coaches did not target Claiborne for as many plays during the team session and he said he is comfortable with the brace he is wearing on his left wrist.
“I’m having no problems with it, so far,” Claiborne said.
The LSU product said wearing the brace will not limit his physicality in dealing with receivers while adjusting to NFL rules that do not allow contact after five yards.
“I know you can’t touch them past five (yards), so I try to get my work done early in the down,” Claiborne said. “Get it in at five yards and have the route under control at that point.”
