Danny Coale expects to be ready 'sooner than later'
|Cowboys WR Danny Coale discusses his foot injury, the timetable of his return, learning the offense as a rookie and more. |
Coale, who started running a couple of weeks ago, still doesn’t know exactly when he’ll be able to start competing for a role and roster spot in a crowded receivers corps.
“Sooner rather than later,” Coale said. “It’s really how it responds. We really don’t put a timetable on it. I’d like to say (near) the beginning of camp, the first couple of weeks into camp, we’ll be ready to roll. But it’s how it responds really. Everybody responds differently. We’ll just add more each day and see how it feels.”
Coale acknowledges that it’s been a frustrating couple of months. He’s done his best to study film and take mental reps, but he knows how important live reps are to a rookie learning an offense.
“My opportunity will come,” Coale said. “You’ve just got to stay mentally right and focused.”
