Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne playing with bum shoulder, wounded pride after critical penalty

Morris Claiborne laughed when reminded of his Twitter rant a few hours after a pass interference penalty cost the Dallas Cowboys a final chance to come back against Kansas City.

The easy smile seemed to show he had moved on after feeling compelled to tell "the haters out there your opinion doesn't matter so keep it to yourself."

Moving on is what cornerbacks get paid to do. That includes those playing with a bum shoulder, wounded pride and the burden of being a No. 6 overall pick that the Cowboys moved up eight spots to get a year ago.

Claiborne says he "ain't thinking about" the penalty, and coach Jason Garrett isn't worried about him bouncing back Sunday at home against St. Louis.
