The pads went on Monday in Oxnard, and there’s already been a toll on the Cowboys’ roster. We have the latest on the injury to wideout James Washington, including a prognosis for how much time he’ll miss and a list of possible replacement pass-catchers the team should be investigating.
In addition, Monday’s session brought out some good work from CeeDee Lamb, a slew of bad snaps, a bona fide kicking competition, and an absolute monster pancake from the team’s highly-touted first-round draft pick. One of the defensive leaders got a scare to start the week, but was able to return to practice, much to the relief of onlookers. All that, plus an update on Matt Waletzko’s shoulder, Emmitt Smith speaks out on the Cowboys’ current RB timeshare split, and the Jimmy Johnson-Jerry Jones feud gets nasty regarding the Ring of Honor. The Deshaun Watson suspension has a Cowboys connection that has many fans seeing red, and the team ownership sees green over the latest valuation numbers. That’s all ahead in News and Notes.
