Jets CB Morris Claiborne exited Sunday's Week 10 game after aggravating his foot injury.

Claiborne got beaten badly by DeSean Jackson repeatedly in the first quarter, then took a seat after giving up a 22-yard catch. Claiborne has battled this foot injury for weeks. He was later seen on the sideline without his helmet.
Nov 12 - 1:46 PM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne is active for Week 10 against the Bucs.

He hasn't played since Week 8. Claiborne figures to shadow DeSean Jackson, although we believe it's a matchup Jackson can win. The rest of the Jets' Week 10 inactives are QB Christian Hackenberg, OL Brett Jones, DL Obum Gwacham, OL Jarvis Harrison, LB David Bass, RB Matt Forte, and CB Robert Nelson.
Nov 12 - 11:51 AM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne (foot) is questionable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Muhammad Wilkerson (foot, shoulder) also drew the questionable tag. Claiborne returned to a limited practice on Thursday and is on track to play Sunday at Tampa Bay after missing Week 9 with a foot injury. He's No. 19 in PFF's cornerback grades.
Nov 10 - 1:05 PM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne (foot) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

Nov 9 - 11:39 AM

Jets declared CB Morris Claiborne (foot) inactive for Week 9 against the Bills.

Claiborne, who has been having a nice season, didn't have enough time to get right on the short week. DE Muhammad Wilkerson is active. Also inactive for the Jets are QB Christian Hackenberg, S Terrence Brooks, CB Derrick Jones, DE Obum Gwacham, FB Lawrence Thomas and OL Brandon Shell.
Nov 2 - 6:50 PM

Morris Claiborne (foot) is questionable for Week 9 against the Bills.

Claiborne didn't practice at all this week, making him more doubtful for Thursday night. If he sits, it'll be an upgrade to Kelvin Benjamin in his Bills debut.
Nov 1 - 2:27 PM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne (foot) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice.

He went down with a foot injury in Sunday's loss to Atlanta and would seem to have little chance of suiting up Thursday night against Buffalo. Claiborne has had a good first year with the Jets, earning PFF's No. 20 grade out of 114 qualifiers at cornerback.
Oct 31 - 1:49 PM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne (foot) was listed as no practice on Monday.

Afterwards, coach Todd Bowles told the media Claiborne has a "possible" chance to play on Thursday night against the Bills, although it may come down to a game-day decision. Claiborne has been shadowing No. 1 receivers this year and got the best of Julio Jones on Sunday before leaving with foot soreness.
Oct 30 - 5:16 PM

Jets CB Morris Claiborne left Sunday's Week 8 game with a foot injury.

Gang Green is already missing slot CB Buster Skrine due to a concussion. Claiborne was shutting down Julio Jones before exiting Sunday's game. The moment he left, Matt Ryan found Julio for a 54-yard bomb in Darryl Roberts' coverage.
Oct 29 - 3:08 PM

Jets DC Kacy Rodgers said he thinks Morris Claiborne's best fit is as a press-man corner.

Rodgers thinks Claiborne was miscast as more of a zone corner with the Cowboys. "I remember when he came out in the [2012] draft and we saw him as a press-man corner, and we were really high on him," Rodgers said. "With more of a press scheme, we thought he'd fit well in our scheme with his press-man tools." Claiborne does have the skills to be a No. 1 corner, but his success will always hinge on health. Claiborne has played 47 games total through five seasons.

Jets signed CB Morris Claiborne, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year, $5 million contract.

Claiborne had been drawing interest from the Ravens, but the Jets swooped in after Baltimore opted for Claiborne's old teammate, Brandon Carr. The No. 6 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Claiborne had the looks of a massive bust, but seemed to be turning his career around last season before suffering a severe groin injury. Injuries have been a problem for the 27 year old. Claiborne will likely get the opportunity to start in New York, but he'll have to earn it. He's a body for a team that needs them.
Mar 16 - 4:03 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens have "legitimate" interest in CB Morris Claiborne.

Claiborne was solid when on the field in 2016, but he only played seven games before returning and then getting hurt in the Cowboys' playoff loss. He would be a solid flyer for a corner-needy team, but the Ravens cannot rely on him alone.
Mar 9 - 5:18 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said impending free agent CB Morris Claiborne has "a very bright future ahead of him."

"Every injury he's had has been legitimate," Garrett continued, suggesting there are no questions about Claiborne's desire to play football in Dallas. That said, he has only managed 47 games in five seasons, and a promising 2016 campaign was cut short by a groin injury. With seemingly the entire secondary headed to free agency, the Cowboys might be looking for a safer option.
Mar 1 - 6:12 PM

The Cowboys could move on from free agent CB Morris Claiborne.

Claiborne had a standout 2016 before sitting out the final nine games of the regular season. He returned for the Divisional Round, but was knocked out with another injury. Claiborne has never played a full season, missing 26 games the last three years. Still, Claiborne just turned 27, plays a premium position, and put standout play on 2016 tape. He should get paid well in free agency.
