Danny Coale hurts foot at OTAs
The Cowboys kicked off their voluntary OTAs at Valley Ranch on Tuesday with a near-full roster on the field before Coale was hurt. The extent of the injury is not known as of yet.
The only eligible players missing from the workout were linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who had personal business and will be in attendance Wednesday, and cornerback Mike Jenkins, who is skipping the OTAs and is looking for a trade, according to sources.
Coale is one of a handful of receivers the Cowboys are looking at to fill the vacant No. 3 spot behind Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. He finished his college career second in Virginia Tech history in receptions and yards.
A prolonged absence would hurt the fifth-round pick's chances of making a big contribution as a rookie.
He is the second draft pick to get hurt in the last month. Linebacker Kyle Wilber, a fourth-round pick, suffered a fractured right index finger in the rookie minicamp and is expected to be out until training camp. First-round pick Morris Claiborne is recovering from left wrist surgery performed before the draft.
