Cowboys | Family loss for Morris Claiborne
Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is with family and friends in Shreveport, La., dealing with the death of his father, Robert Owens. Claiborne had been dealing with a hamstring injury but had to curtail some of his rehab work because of the family issue. “He’s very close with his family,” Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. “Very close in Louisiana and suddenly his father passed away at a relatively young age. He was not what I wold call an older man. Having said that, it tore his world up so he immediately left to be with his family. We knew he wasn’t going to play this week and that’s besides the point. He wanted to be with his family and we’re giving him all of the time that he needs there or wants.” KFFL sends its condolences.
