On Tuesday, it was reported that Claiborne "angrily" left practice when he was told he would not be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game.
Claiborne was the No. 6 pick for the Cowboys in the 2012 NFL Draft but has been criticized for his play in his two-plus seasons and has just three interceptions. One came Sunday, a game-clincher in a 34-31 victory over the Rams.
On Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on a radio show that Claiborne is not yet what the team had hoped for when he was selected by Dallas two years ago.
The Cowboys are 2-1 and will host the Saints on Sunday.
