Cornerback Morris Claiborne didn’t participate in team drills near the end of practice, as he tweaked a hamstring earlier in the day.

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said it was a precautionary move. This is not the time of year, after all, for players to try and play through minor injuries.

Marinelli did praise Claiborne’s offseason to date, and feels the former first-round pick is in line for a solid season in 2016. But this has to be considered a setback for the injury-prone Claiborne.

Claiborne, 26, has missed 24 of 64 games in his career because of injuries.
