Cowboys Injury Update: Morris Claiborne has ruptured patellar tendon

It was initially reported that Dallas Cowboys defensive back Morris Claiborne had torn his ACL, but MRI results revealed on Monday showed the former first round pick suffered a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

It was a rough week for Claiborne who, according to SportsDayDFW, lost his starting job, stormed out of the teams practice facility, but later returned to apologize. The Cowboys used the number six overall pick in 2012 on Claiborne and he has yet to provide a return on investment.

The season ending injury means that Claiborne will miss 18 games over the last two seasons, hardly what the Cowboys envisioned when they used a top 10 pick on him.

Let's hope he can recover, mature and come back better then ever and live up to some of his first round hype.
