The Cowboys have another player go under the knife.
DeMarcus Lawrence had his shoulder surgery to repair his torn labrum on Wednesday. The hope is that he will be ready for action at some point in training camp, but most importantly before the first game of the 2019 season. He will be joined in the recovery room by teammate La’el Collins.
Collins let everyone know that he had surgery after the 2018 season for a torn rotator cuff. His rehab will take him into some point in the summer but he should be ready for training camp. He noted that the Cowboys will be very cautious with him in the OTAs and the mini-camp.
This is the last season of his current contract and it will be a pivotal year for him and his future in Dallas. His play at right tackle has been up and down but he’s generally been a serviceable anchor on the end of the line. Depending on his play in 2019, his price could either rise or dip as he heads into 2020 free agency.
As the Star-Telegram article reminds us, Collins will join other starters Lawrence and Byron Jones on the mend. Jones is recovering from hip surgery and like Lawrence is expected to start training camp on the PUP list.
