Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback has been dealing with injury problems lately and it hasn't gone so smoothly with the team's executive vice president, Stephen Jones.

As Jones says so, Claiborne needs to toughen it out and play through the pain.

“Mo Claiborne’s got to get out there,” Jones said, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “The times he’s been out there, it's been impressive. But he certainly can’€™t make the club in the tub, if you will. He’s got to get out there. It’s time. We got to start having a mentality that we’re going to play through things.

“You don’t ever see Jason Witten missing practice, and he’s going on 10 [seasons]. He just won’t miss. So, we got to have the young guys step up and play better."

I don't think this is very smart of Dallas doing this to their players. They already have done this with Dez Bryant and now it's Claiborne. Continually ripping on the young guys isn't going to help this team grow at all.
