Claiborne's potential penalties for leaving Tuesday

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne will be punished by the team for missing Tuesday's walkthrough after learning he would no longer be a starter, but the team will not keep him out of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

"We'll keep how we're disciplining him in house and we'll move forward," coach Jason Garrett said. "It's behind us."

What kind of discipline is available?

If the Cowboys are not de-activating him for the game or suspending him for any amount of time, then the only other option is a fine.

Which type of fine the Cowboys determine to use would affect Claiborne's checkbook differently.

According to the collective bargaining agreement, the Cowboys can levy a $9,440 fine for missing the Tuesday walkthrough. If they deemed his absence came at the expense of other mandatory activities that day, like meetings, a work out or weigh in, then he can be fined a maximum of $29,770 for the multiple offenses.

If they fine him through conduct detrimental to the team, then he can lose one week's pay. Claiborne makes $109,917 per week as part of his $1.868 million base salary.

It's doubtful the Cowboys would take such a harsh stance on Claiborne for conduct detrimental to the team, but another episode could go down that path.
