Dallas Cowboys training camp practice number three updates: Gerald McCoy goes down with knee injury

Hoping all is well for Cowboys defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys Shane Roper-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys held their first padded practice of the season on Monday and it had a somber moment with reports of an apparent knee injury for defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

Due to the way that Covid-19 protocols are working this season no reporting from reporters on site is allowed until practice is over. We have collected the highlights of what seems to have been the day’s most important briefings.

Let’s begin.

Gerald McCoy was interacting with Antwaun Woods when it happened

Hoping for the best.

Sounds like it was just an accident during a drill. Youmans went on to say that there wasn’t even a lot of contact during the drill, just a freak incident.

Everson Griffen has arrived

In more hopeful news, the Cowboys officially have a new defensive lineman.

He is reportedly set to wear number 96, in case you missed it. Interestingly enough that was Jalen Jelks’ number and Jelks was released to make room for Griffen. Football can be a tough business.

Jaylon Smith and Anthony Brown looked good

This is definitely great to see. McCarthy hyped up Jaylon Smith during his Monday morning press conference so it appears as if that is happening on the regular.

Andy Dalton looks “really good”

Hey, it’s been a minute since we’ve talked about him.

Also nice to see that Zeke and Tony Pollard are looking fresh.

Dontari Poe is still working resistance chords

Taking it easy at this point is the best idea.

Shout out to DeMarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford, though.

CeeDee Lamb demonstrated “quickness”

You love to see it.

Long gains should do just fine.

Greg Zuerlein got some action

We mentioned Andy Dalton a little while ago, and now another new face has appeared. Greg Zuerlein, ladies and gentlemen!

100%. Is that good?
