We all know injuries are a part of the sport, but 18 names on the injury report one week into camp? Why do you think we have so many injuries? This is not good.
Josh: It’s nothing new. Maybe the Cowboys are holding more players out of practice because they’re being overly precautious. If there were a game on Sunday, I get the idea a lot of these guys would play. But, Jason Garrett does like to strap on the pads as often as possible. Just keep knocking on wood, I guess.
Rowan: It’s not good, but I don’t think there’s necessarily a reason for it. The guys are in shape, or they wouldn’t have passed their conditioning tests. A lot of these players haven’t had football contact in months, so early in camp it’ll happen.
