Jimmy Robinson Likes His Young Guys

Working at full capacity a little less than two weeks after he suffered a concussion in a sideline collision, Jimmy Robinson was glad he could make it to Thursday's preseason opener.

The Cowboys' new wide receivers coach got a pretty nice first outing from several of his young guys. Dwayne Harris had the biggest night of all, but there were also contributions by a couple other rookies, Raymond Radway and Tysson Poots.

"They got in there and they made some plays," Robinson said. "It's good for their confidence. I think they're confident guys anyway. But I think it's a great start for them. ... They got some opportunities and made some things happen."

Harris, a sixth-round pick from East Carolina, caught Robinson's eye in the spring.

"Dwayne is a guy that's kind of a work in progress," Robinson said. "But you can tell he's a ball player because it just seems like he knows how to play the game. He doesn't do everything perfectly, but he catches the ball, he makes the tough catch and he shows a little speed. He catches it and runs with it, and I think he's going to be a good addition for us."

As for the coach himself, Robinson said he came out of the game feeling fine after a headache in the first half, which he treated with an over-the-counter pain reliever.
