From the DMN:

E.J. Whitley's season ended before it really began.

The offensive lineman out of Texas Tech, one of the Cowboys' two seventh-round picks, had surgery Tuesday on a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He was injured during a rookie minicamp this month.

I didn't think he was going to play this year anyway, but still a tough break for the kid. He had surgery and will start working towards next year.

From the same DMN article, we learn that both Drew Henson and CB Lenny Williams will return from NFLE and participate in the upcoming mini-camp. WR Tom Crowder will not participate, he's still recovering from his broken cheekbone suffered at the end of the NFLE season.
