A Wednesday practice has knocked out a key Dallas defender.
Demarcus Lawrence suffered a broken foot during the session, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Lawrence is out indefinitely due to the injury.
Lawrence, 29, exited practice early, landing on the Cowboys’ practice report as a limited participant with a foot injury. Further examination revealed the extent of the injury that will keep him from participating in Dallas’ Week 2 game against the Chargers and beyond, as Lawrence broke the fifth-metatarsal in his foot and it will require surgery that, if all goes well, should allow him to return in November, Rapoport added.
The injury occurred on a routine pass rush, per NFL Network’s Jane Slater, who reported “nothing remarkable” happened when Lawrence was injured, according to a source.
