The Dallas Cowboys were surprisingly thin with NFL experience when they entered 2022 training camp. On Day 1 of practice without pads, free agent signing James Washington left for a while with an apparent shoulder injury that turned out to be nothing. There was a brief moment of breath holding on Friday when star receiver CeeDee Lamb missed team drills, that turned out to be a rest move, but the warning bells were rung.
On Monday, during the first padded practice, Dallas did indeed suffer a major injury their likely least-deep position, as Washington was carted off the field with a foot injury. It appears he has suffered a Jones fracture, an injury that will leave him on the shelf for two-to-three months.
