Cole Beasley leads in receiving, loses lunch
However, after making a second-half catch, Beasley, well, got sick.
"I was tired," he said. "But the reason I came off was because I landed on the ball and the ball knocked the wind out of me and made me have to throw up a little bit. Being tired had a little bit to do wit hit, but it was more the ball knocking the air out of me. You'll probably see me throw up a lot more than just then. I throw up a lot before the games, too. I'm not ashamed of it at all. I just happened to land on the ball and it made some stuff come out of me."
Sickness aside, Beasley moved up the charts in the No. 3 receiver battle.
Kevin Ogletree also had a strong performance with four catches for 60 yards, and Dwayne Harris caught a touchdown pass among his four receptions.
"Yes, one day at a time is my approach," Ogletree said. "Just getting better every chance I get, never looking down or behind me or ahead of me or at the numbers, just growing every day as a player and as a person, and that's really helping me."
As of now, Beasley is getting first-team snaps as the slot receiver. Coach Jason Garrett noted the rookie is quarterback-friendly and does a good job of finding open spots in zone coverage.
"Yeah, I got to catch the ball and run with it a little bit," Beasley said. "So I think it was a good performance."
