News came out today that the Dallas Cowboys 3rd round pick Robert Brewster will miss all of training camp and likely more. At this point the Cowboys are simply hoping that he’ll be able to play this year, though they are still evaluating whether he’ll be placed on Injured Reserve or the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list.
He suffered a tear to his pectoral muscle during post-minicamp workouts – he was lifting weights when it happened. Currently walking around with his arm in a sling, the news of his injury is troublesome for the Cowboys.
Many of you might think he’s only a rookie, and that he wouldn’t have contributed that much anyway, but you need to consider that he added valuable depth at right tackle behind Marc Colombo.
If he is placed on Injured reserve, he would be ineligible to play again until the 2010 season. If he should be placed on the PUP list instead, he would not count against the 53-man roster and would have about 10 weeks to try to recover before the Cowboys would have to either play him or place him on IR.
Here’s hoping from one fan to another that this isn’t the beginning of another very long and injury plagued season for the Cowboys.
