"I have no idea, don't know," Bus Cook told ESPN Dallas on Saturday. "I don't know. We'll see."

Claiborne has yet to engage in contact or practice at full speed after undergoing wrist surgery following February's NFL Scouting Combine. The Cowboys are counting on the No. 6 overall pick to be a difference-maker on defense.
