Morris Claiborne said he practiced this week with a more restrictive shoulder harness than the one he will wear in the game.
But he still is unsure how it will affect his play.
“I don’t know. We’ll see,” he said Friday, asked if the harness would hamper him more defending the pass or making a tackle. “I just can’t say. We’ll find out come Sunday.”
Claiborne is recovering from a separated left shoulder in last week’s game against the Giants. He said he wore the more restrictive harness when the team was not in pads and to keep from extending his arm too far too son.
“The one I have when I’m wearing pads feels better than the one I wear when we’re not in pads,” he said. “I feel like it’s way better than the one that I’m wearing during practice and everything.”
Can he throw his shoulder into a tackle?
“I guess so,” he said. “Got to find a way.”
