Of course the bad news of the day is the season-ending Achilles injury to Tyrone Crawford. A real shame, everybody was looking forward to his development and what he could bring to the defensive line rotation this year. Now the Cowboys have to fill that void internally, or make a move on the free agency market. Some defensive ends still available include:
Anthony Spencer missed the last hour of practice with a balky left knee. Spencer said he tweaked the same knee he hyperextended during offseason workouts. The linebacker said he rested as a precaution. Kyle Wilber replaced him with the first team.
And some good news on the injury front?
Guards N Livings, M Bernadeau & R Leary all expected to return to practice before end of the week. More to come at http://t.co/gDRcfZQXli— David Moore (@DavidMooreDMN) July 22, 2013
Our old friend Mike Fisher reports Jerry Jones and AT&T are nearing a deal for the naming rights to Cowboys Stadium.
The Dallas Cowboys are in the process of reaching a Cowboys Stadium naming rights deal with AT&T, sources tell 105.3 The Fan. The framework of the arrangement – discussed with the telecommunications giant since the $1.2 billion building opened four years ago – once centered on a $25 million-a-year fee. A source said a Farmers Insurance bid of $700 million for a proposed new stadium in LA and the San Francisco 49ers’ recent 20-year deal for $220 million "re-set’’ the framework for conversations, and that the naming rights will likely go into effect for the 2014 season.
