Executive VP Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are "starting to feel pretty confident" that Claiborne (sports hernia) will return this season, DallasNews.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne hasn't played since Week 8 due to a sports hernia injury. While he was recently feared to be set to miss more time than initially thought, that narrative may not be entirely true. Nonetheless, Claiborne remains without a concrete timeline to return.

Claiborne (sports hernia) is far from a return and may miss more than the initially expected 4-6 weeks, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The specifics of Claiborne's injury weren't originally disclosed but he's since opened up about the injury. He tore some of the bone off his pelvis and the healing has been a slow process. He says the injury should heal on its own but the possibility of surgery still looms. He'll undergo a second MRI in 2-3 weeks and could decide on surgery at that point.

Claiborne (sports hernia) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

According to owner Jerry Jones, Claiborne (sports hernia) is expected to be out for four-to-six weeks.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne suffered the sports hernia in the closing minutes of regulation in Sunday's win over the Eagles. Safety Barry Church (forearm) was also injured during the game, so the Cowboys will be extra thin in the secondary for the next handful of weeks. Claiborne has been battered and bruised all season, dealing with ankle issues and a concussion a few weeks back. Orlando Scandrick seems to be the likely replacement for him, as he logged a season high 56 defensive snaps on Sunday. Look for more updates on the status of Claiborne's injury to come in the following weeks.

Claiborne faces a prolonged absence due to a sports hernia, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne suffered the injury in the final minute of regulation Sunday, when fellow defensive back Barry Church (arm) also went down. While it's yet to be determined whether Claiborne will undergo surgery, he faces an extended stint on the sidelines anyway. With him out, Orlando Scandrick is expected to fill Dallas' starting position opposite Brandon Carr, with Anthony Brown being the only other cornerback on the team's roster.

Claiborne is being evaluated for a possible sports hernia, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne was forced out during the fourth quarter of Sunday's overtime win over the Eagles with what was initially deemed a groin injury. After further examination, the cornerback could have sustained a sports hernia, which often requires surgery. Despite his struggles to start his career, Claiborne has played pretty well this season, so he and the Cowboys will hope for the best regarding his injury, but early indications appear more ominous.

Claiborne left Sunday's win over the Eagles with a groin injury in the fourth quarter and did not return, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The oft-injured cornerback is having a career season for the Cowboys, so losing him for any length of time would be a tough blow to the secondary. Rookie Anthony Brown would see most of the available snaps if Claiborne is sidelined next week.

Claiborne (concussion) will play Sunday against the Eagles, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne sustained a concussion two weeks ago, but was afforded the Cowboys' Week 7 bye in order to clear protocol. He wasn't limited in practice whatsoever this week, so he appears to have fully recovered.

Claiborne (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne is on pace to be ready for Sunday's game against the Eagles after spending his recent bye week recovering from a concussion. The Cowboys could be very thin at cornerback if Claiborne suffers any kind of setback, with Anthony Brown in line for additional reps in such a case.

Claiborne (concussion) returned to practice Monday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Claiborne suffered a concussion during Dallas' Week 6 win in Green Bay, but the team's subsequent bye week apparently allowed him to overcome that condition. In returning to practice Monday, Claiborne has seemingly cleared the league's concussion protocol, so he should be available as usual for Sunday night's matchup against the Eagles.
