Cowboys cornerback Mo Claiborne getting better, but will not play vs. Bengals

Cornerback Mo Claiborne has improved in his rehab from the knee injury that has sidelined him since he sprained it Aug. 6.

He has made progress, starting to run and doing some change of direction stuff Thursday before the team practiced at AT&T Stadium. Claiborne will not play against the Bengals, but the Cowboys are hopeful of getting him back on the practice field next week. 

"It’s been positive," Garrett said. "He ran again today and did some good work, some changing direction work. He’s making progress each and every day. It’s important that he does, that he keeps growing. We don’t anticipate him playing this weekend, but these next few days are really important for him to hopefully get back on the practice field at some point next week."

Claiborne said he was encouraged by Thursday's work.

"I got some good quality work in today," Claiborne said. "I did some running. I did some cutting and stuff on the cards. It felt pretty good.

"...Hopefully, I will [be back next week]. I’ve been feeling good with the running and with the cutting. I feel like we’ve made some big strides this week to get me back on the field."
