DeMarcus Lawrence is not at all fond of the suggestion that he experienced a “setback” in his recovery from offseason back surgery. But the Cowboys defensive end did far less at practice on Wednesday.
The Cowboys practice on Wednesday featured the offensive return of tackle Tyron Smith, the defensive return (to hopefully full-time status) of Orlando Scandrick and some cautious optimism regarding Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and Dan Bailey.
OK, time once again to review my pregame FishTips to see how they played out in Sunday’s visit by the Cowboys to the Bay Area:
Recapping the Fish Report from Friday morning’s Cowboys-related visit with “Shan & RJ’’ on 105.3 The Fan … with 10 FishTips
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant tells me he “feels good and positive’’ about the hairline fracture of his right tibia and is “doing all the right things to get back on the field.’’
According to multiple reports, Cowboys head coach told San Francisco media on a conference call that Dez Bryant has a slight hairline fracture in one of the bones in his knee.
Left guard starter La’el Collins — the prized youngster who was given Leary’s old job last year — left Sunday’s game with what apparently is a torn ligament in his toe/foot that could sideline him for eight weeks and require surgery.
An assortment of NFL players have expressed the hope that a prominent white professional athlete would join in the National-Anthem-tied cause for social change as it relates to police conflicts with African-Americans.
Leary has tried to keep the faith, and keep his mouth shut, since signing his free-agent tender of $2.553 million for one year last spring.
“We feel OK,” owner Jerry Jones said about Bryant, who did return from the early injury to catch a TD pass in the win that propels Dallas to 2-1. “Right now, we’re fine. We’ll give it another look-see with the MRI.”
An assortment of Machine-Gun Fish takes as you await the Sunday night Bears-at-Cowboys kickoff.
Nobody in radio gets big guests to say big things better than “Shan & RJ’’ on 105.3 The Fan, and it happened again this week when they asked iconic tough guy Mike Ditka for his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling civil-rights protests during the National Anthem.
