The star defender suffered the injury in practice on Wednesday, and will miss multiple weeks, according to sources.
FRISCO – The defensive end of the Dallas Cowboys, DeMarcus Lawrence, suffered a broken foot in practice Wednesday that will force him to miss multiple weeks of action, according to sources.
This is a serious blow against a defense that did not generate a sack in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that he might as well be without his second best quarterback hunter, Randy gregory, next Sunday in front of Los Angeles Chargers.
Lawrence He was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, but immediately underwent an MRI, revealing the fracture. Lawrence He did not practice for most of training camp for back surgery offseason, but he did record six tackles, two quarterback rushes and forced a forced fumble against the Buccaneers. He has 45.5 captures per life, and is a two-time chosen at Pro bowl.
As for Gregory, the head coach Mike mccarthy did not sound optimistic before practice that he would overcome COVID-19 protocols in time to confront the Chargers.
“If you look at history, it has been 10 days for practically all of us who have had to deal with the COVID protocol,” revealed the coach. “We’ll see how it goes.”
With Lawrence out and in case Gregory can’t play, then the Cowboys potentially resort to Dorance armstrong and Tarell basham as your headlines with Bradlee Anae and Chauncey golston as alternates. They have combined for 10 sacks in their careers, or just 3.5 more sacks than they recorded. Lawrence Last season. Basham he has 7.5 sacks in 59 games.
Golston, a third-round pick, missed all of training camp with a hamstring injury and was disabled for the start of the season.
Perhaps the start of training on Wednesday was a bad sign for the defensive line of the Cowboys. The defensive line assistant, Leon lett, was taken off the field in the cart after an apparent injury to his right knee that will require surgery.
Since the 31-29 loss to the Buccaneers, the Cowboys have lost four starters: wide receiver Michael Gallup was placed on injured reserve with a strained calf, right tackle La’el Collins was suspended five matches for violating the substance abuse policy of the NFL, Gregory was put on the COVID-19 list, and now Lawrence he’s out with a broken foot.
WFAA-TV was the first medium to report the fracture in the foot of Lawrence.
