Dallas’ DE Demarcus Lawrence Out With Broken Foot

The Dallas Cowboys got some bad news on Monday as they found out that their 34th overall pick in this years draft will likely be sidelined for the majority of training camp and the preseason as sources have confirmed that defensive end Demarcus Lawrence has a broken foot.  Lawrence suffered the injury in two-on-two pass rush drills at about the halfway point of practice. The rookie was working against Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith, who dumped him to the ground before he came up limping.  According to multiple reports late Tuesday night, the injury could force him out for the next eight to 12 weeks, which would keep him out of at least the first month of the regular season.

The news comes as an especially big blow to the Cowboys’ hopes of improving their pass rush.  Lawrence was drafted specifically to play the right end position in Rod Marinelli’s defensive scheme.  He was working as a second-teamer behind veteran Jeremy Mincey, but the Cowboys had high hopes Lawrence would make an immediate impact.  The pre-season opener is set for August 7th while the regular season begins on September 7th.  It is unlikely that Lawrence makes his debut until after the season opener against the San Fransisco 49ers.
