New York Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne is dealing with a wrist injury that he sustained during organized team activities, but he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.
Jets cornerback Morris Claiborne has dealt with plenty of injuries during his NFL career.
But he thinks the latest one — which the Jets are calling a bruised wrist — will not sideline him for any of training camp. Claiborne expects to be ready for the start of camp in late July.
He is currently wearing a soft cast/brace on his wrist, and is out for the remainder of spring practices. The Jets conclude minicamp Thursday. Claiborne got hurt midway through organized team activities. He said he participated in about five practices before getting hurt.

“I don’t remember exactly how I did it. I kind of like fell to the ground. I don’t know if I did it when I fell to the ground or going up for the ball. I don’t know, in the span of that play, how it happened.”
The Jets are incorporating new No. 1 cornerback Trumaine Johnson into their secondary. And safety Marcus Maye has been out all spring after undergoing ankle surgery.
