The Dallas Cowboys already weren’t positive if defensive finish Randy Gregory would have the ability to play on this Sunday’s matchup on the Los Angeles Chargers after he reportedly examined optimistic for COVID-19.
Dallas received extra unhealthy information on Wednesday.
Based on Joe Trahan of WFAA-TV and ESPN’s Todd Archer, Cowboys defensive finish DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a damaged foot throughout Wednesday’s observe and is ready to be out for a number of weeks. Logic suggests Lawrence will quickly be positioned on injured reserve, which suggests he’ll miss no less than the subsequent three video games per NFL guidelines.
The Cowboys later confirmed Lawrence broke his foot.
It is unclear if Lawrence, a two-time Professional Bowler, will probably be dominated out for the rest of the marketing campaign. He tallied 5 complete tackles and one compelled fumble in final Thursday’s season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Earlier studies mentioned that Gregory is totally vaccinated in opposition to the coronavirus, which means he may very well be cleared to return to group actions at any level forward of the weekend so long as he’s asymptomatic and produces two unfavourable virus exams 24 hours aside.
“In case you have a look at the historical past, it has been 10 days just about all people we have handled within the COVID protocol,” Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy mentioned of Gregory. “We’ll simply see the way it goes.”
The Chargers defeated the Washington Soccer Group 20-16 in Week 1.
