Cowboys DB Claiborne done for season
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys cornerback and former LSU Tiger Morris Claiborne will have season-ending surgery after tearing the patellar tendon in his left knee.
Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Claiborne will have surgery in the next couple of days and be put on injured reserve.
Claiborne got hurt in Sunday night's 38-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints, when he was down on the field at the end of a play with about 6 minutes left in the first quarter. The sixth overall pick from the 2012 draft had to be helped off the field with people on both sides of him.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones immediately after the game expressed concerns about the severity of the injury, and further tests Monday confirmed that.
