Claiborne Makes Preseason Cameo for the Cowboys

Shreveport native and LSU alum see's first game-action since being drafted in the first round by the Dallas Cowboys
(San Diego, CA) The Cowboys mustered only three points in their preseason opener against Oakland, but despite the poor offensive showing, the attention was on the defensive side of the ball in game two against the Chargers. That's because the Cowboys first round draft pick Morris Claiborne saw his first game action since being drafted sixth overall in 2012's NFL draft.

The former Fair Park High standout from Shreveport, LA, hurt his knee the previous week and was forced to sit out Dallas' first preseason game.

Claiborne played the entire first half.

He made little impact in the box score, but San Diego quarterback Phillip Rivers rarely threw Claiborne's way.

Instead, Rivers threw Brandon Carr's way, and Carr made him pay with two interceptions.

The Chargers rallied to beat the Cowboys 28-20, sending Dallas to 0-2 in the preseason.
