According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne is practicing today after missing OTA’s and mimicamp while recovering from wrist surgery.

Claiborne was also seen returning punts during special teams drills.  This doesn’t mean he’ll be returning punts in the regular season, but I wouldn’t even think about it if I were the Cowboys.  Doesn’t make sense to put one of your most talented defensive players in a situation where he’s more prone to getting injured.
