Cornerback Morris Claiborne, who has been sidelined for the past week with tendinitis in his right knee, will not play in the preseason opener against the Chargers.

Add in the other injuries — Sterling Moore (groin) and Dashaun Phillips (hamstring) — and the continued absence of starter Brandon Carr (death in the family) and the Cowboys are shorthanded at cornerback.

The team is actively looking to sign a player for depth purposes before the Chargers game on Thursday. They brought in free-agent cornerback Charles Sawyer on Monday, but didn’t sign him after he failed the physical.

Look for second-year player B.W. Webb, second-round pick Terrance Mitchell and undrafted rookie free agent Tyler Patmon to get plenty of work against the Chargers.

The only healthy veteran, Orlando Scandrick, will likely have a short night if he plays at all.
