Cowboys defensive back Morris Claiborne recently said that he hopes to be ready for a June 12 minicamp after recently having pins removed from his left wrist.

Claiborne’s hopes may not become reality.

Via, former Cowboys scout Bryan Broaddus, who now writes for the team’s official website, writes on Twitter that Claiborne still will need more time: “Talk of Mo Claiborne being ready to go in June. Not the case. Should be able to start running next week. Still looking at training camp.”

It’s unclear whether Broaddus is expressing an opinion of his own or passing along an official statement from the organization.

Either way, the talk of Claiborne being ready for the June minicamp comes in part from Claiborne. It’ll be interesting to see when/if he agrees that he won’t be ready for the June 12 camp.
