    • They confirmed Dez has a high right ankle sprain. Will miss 4-6 weeks.

        • I just wanted to see him in one ******* pre-season game, was that too much to ask? **** this ****, just cut him now, he's truly useless to this team. *DMN blog comment tone*

          • For real. And now any small chance of Crayton departing is gone. Crayton's consistent sure, but come on...Hurd and Ogletree are right there. I wonder what we do at KR now. AOA probably wont be used there, seeing as how he's coming off of injury. If this lingers, it will really be interesting.

              "Interesting" isn't exactly the word I would use when talking about the possibility of a lingering injury for Dez. Some sort of expletive probably, but not 'interesting'.

                lol. We'd be fine without him, that's for sure. But i'd rather have him out there, obviously. If there is a position where we could lose a guy or two, and still be fine, that would be at WR. (well losing Austin, would hurt pretty bad right now. knock on wood) But anyway, keeping 6 WRs was looking like a given anyway, but now it is a certainty. They're all going to be active on game day too. Hurd and Ogletree are two very important players on the ST and they've been running with the first teams, as always. Hurd is essentially the ST captain and Ogletree is probably a gunner on the punt units thsi year. Not to mention, Ogletree has to become a favorite for KR duties for however long Dez is out.

                edit...never fear Paul...it's all about this right here.







                We'll be alright. :D

                • The Dez news sucks really bad. I really wanted to see him get some preseason snaps to get adjusted to the NFL. I guess it's good that the injury happened now instead of during the season, but it's still not good news to hear. Maybe Hurd and Ogletree use this as an opportunity to show that they can be trusted. At least there are vets at WR so that we know the whole passing game won't implode without Dez.

                  • Of course it wont implode...it's the exact same unit as last year. The Dez addition in itself was a luxury...a fantastic luxury to have, but this wouldnt even be a season killer if we lost him for the year. We have plenty of weapons. But Dezzy is just insane and adds that much more fire power...lets hope he heals up real quick, but we'd be fine regardless. He just puts us over the top.

                    It just sucks that he's going to miss damn near all of camp. His natural ability makes him a threat anyway, but we could expect to see some rust and indecision when he returns. And I really wanted to see him play in the preseason as well.

                    I hope this doesnt mean we baby Hurd and Ogletree in the preseason. I dont need to see Titus Ryan drop 8 passes a game with mass reps.

                      • Pre-season is real important for Dez, mostly to get that rust off. I hope he can pick things up from the sideline, but he doesn't strike as a guy who learns by watching. Definitely a bummer. I just want him to get that ankle taken care of, because we all know ankle sprains can linger for an entire season.

                        side-note: now our top 3 draft choices are on the sidelines. I hope we're not walking down the same path as last year with rookies going down.

                        • All of a sudden our week 4 bye seems kinda like a blessing, when originally I was pissed as **** about it. Which means if we give him limited snaps weeks 1-3, by week 5 he should be full blown ready to go.


                          I'm still not ready to doubt what he can do when he returns, hell Crabtree missed preseason, OTA's, mini camps, and alot of regular season games and still came in to learn the offense and was the #1 WR right off the bat. Dez is the same type of athlete and he actually came from a pro style system, we just need him to make some plays here and there for us.


                          I don't really get too giddy over a WR until his 2nd season, but something about watching and hearing about what he was doing had me really pumped to see what he was going to do in the pre-season.

                            Read it in the Friday ppr & have been in an irascible funk ever since. ****!!

                            Kudos to Mothman for those great shots from San Antonio camp. Wasnt < a yr. ago in this thread we were bemoaning Mike Williams & his many little nagging injuries, "That guy is just an eggshell!" Let's hope that reputation doesn't settle on Bryant. B/C he missed >80% of his last season in college he had a lot to prove this season at the next level, starts off with a major setback, high ankle sprain is more serious than a nagging little injury & has sunk many players for an entire yr.

                            Silver lining: maybe the Cowboys will use up all their bad luck in preseason & catch some lucky breaks later like all the starting front 5 OL staying healthy through January.

                            • John Phillips looks likes another steal for us...I honestly never would have guessed. Looks like we need to nab some more John Garrett guys. Ogletree and Phillips have worked out pretty damn well.

                              Phillips may not have Bennett's ability...but to this point, he seems more well rounded overall. We have a pretty good replacement, in house, if Bennett never gets it.

                                John Garrett put us onto Ogletree? That's pretty cool, I never knew that, I just know Jerry fell in love with him once we drafted him. I agree on John Phillips though, he's almost like Witten to be honest, and I heard a Mark Chumura comparison somewhere else also. I'm not gonna act like I paid much attention to him back in 98' but he was a very solid all around TE and I'd gladly take that.


                                I think were waiting on Bennett to shop him, but then again we do utilize all 3 guys pretty well. Phillips has just been getting so much better it's gonna be hard to not get him valuable reps. He's very well rounded, a hard worker, and a constant improver.
