Lance Dunbar gets thrown down
Dunbar was trying to bounce to the outside on a run until outside linebacker Kyle Wilber snatched him and threw him to the ground.
If anything, Wilber has shown he's quick off the ball and powerful. Now, it's against other rookies and second-year players, but still it's impressive to see.
As for Dunbar, he's hitting the holes pretty quickly and learning the NFL way of life.
Dunbar is one of several players with ties to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. There are two players from Dunbar's college, Royce Hill and Jamize Olawale, who are getting a tryout with the Cowboys.
Dunbar has to perform well on special teams if he's going to make the 53-man roster.
"I have to do extra stuff to make this team," Dunbar said. "I'm not going to back down from anything."
