Claiborne will sit the rest of Sunday's game with the Packers with a concussion, SportsDay Dallas reports.
Claiborne took a hard helmet-to-helmet hit from teammate Sean Lee in the first half of Sunday's game and remained on the ground for a fairly long time before leaving the field. Losing Claiborne would be a big blow for the Cowboys secondary, as he has been a strong point for them all year long. The Cowboys are on bye in Week 7, so Claiborne will look to return Week 8 against the Eagles. Look for Orlando Scandrick and Anthony Brown to see increased snaps in his absence.

Claiborne (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Packers, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports.
Claiborne practiced in full on Friday, so it is no surprise to see him active for Sunday's matchup against the Packers. He should assume his normal role as a starting cornerback for the Cowboys.

Claiborne (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
This was Claiborne's first full practice of the week, as he had been limited earlier in the week. The 26-year-old has started every game for the Cowboys this season, and appears to be trending toward another start in Sunday's matchup with the Packers.

Claiborne (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday.
Head coach Jason Garrett doesn't believe the injury is very serious, but his status for Sunday is still in question. Look for more updates to come as kickoff nears, with Antony Brown serving as the only healthy backup cornerback should Claiborne be ruled out.

Claiborne intercepted a pass and recorded seven tackles Sunday against the 49ers.
Claiborne, who been vastly improved as a cover corner in his fifth NFL season not only intercepted his first pass, but he also posted a season-high seven tackles. He's never had more than one pick in any of his first four seasons, but even when healthy, he was considered a liability in pass coverage. He's clearly turned things around, and he's also posted at least five tackles in each of his last five games. Should he continue his production, he's someone to keep on the watch list in IDP leagues.

Claiborne leads the NFL in completion percentage allowed among all cornerbacks who have been targeted 20 or more times this season, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "I just think his confidence is growing every day," Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said. "But he's practicing. He's on the field every day. We know he's got talent. That's never been the issue. But now he's out there every single day working. He's on top of the details, all those things. As a player, when you have talent like that, and when you put together kind of the grind and the work, the improvement starts showing."
Opposition QBs have thrown Claiborne's way 24 times through three games, but he's allowed just nine catches for 90 yards and no touchdowns. It's been quite a career resurgence so far in 2016 for the oft-injured corner, but if he can keep it up and stay healthy, he'll be headed for a big payday in the offseason as he's currently on just a one-year deal with Dallas.

Claiborne has been shifted over to the left cornerback slot during OTAs and has looked healthier than he has since his rookie season, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. "Just being able to go out and stay sticky on the receivers because I had time to actually work on it [is the biggest change]," Claiborne said Thursday. "I haven't had any nagging injury, and I actually had time to actually work at the line of scrimmage and work on getting stronger. And that helps a lot."
Putting him on the left side has allowed the Cowboys to move Brandon Carr back to the right, the role he filled during his days with the Chiefs, and if Claiborne holds up it would also allow Orlando Scandrick (knee) to stay in the slot once he's back on the field. Claiborne will need to prove he can stay on the field before everyone will really anticipate a rebound from him, but so far, so good.

Claiborne has re-signed with the Cowboys on a one-year, $3 million contract, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Claiborne rejoins the Cowboys after his first four years with the team certainly disappointed. The sixth overall pick in 2012, Claiborne has missed 24 games since entering the league, and has mostly struggled when healthy. That being said, Claiborne still boasts unique athleticism and helps provide depth from a more suitable reserve role within Dallas' secondary.

Claiborne finished the season with 37 tackles and seven passes defended in 11 games.
He has yet to play a full 16-game schedule in his career, and the former first round pick will head into free agency without much value on the open market. Given his draft pedigree, Claiborne could receive an offer based more of his potential upside than his previous production, but if he doesn't attract much interest, the Cowboys are thin at cornerback and could make an effort to bring him back.

Claiborne (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.
Claiborne was able to log limited practices each day this week, but couldn't quite record enough healthy reps to warrant an active status for Week 17. It will be the third straight game the 25-year-old defensive back has sat out.
