Cowboys 2022 OTA News: Cowboys Already Getting Hit with The Injury Bug

On Wednesday (Day 2 of ), local media members got the opportunity to check out the in person for the first time this . While exciting notes were provided about how the team looked, fans freaked out when they learned about two key players absent during the team's practice because of

In a tweet by Dallas Cowboys reporter Michael Gehlken, Gehlken said All-Pro left experienced back tightness Wednesday morning, and out of precaution, the coaches decided to hold him out. Additionally, newly-signed WR was wearing a walking boot on his left, but the reason why was not found.

While it's not ideal to have two of your starters already hit with the bug so early in the offseason, HC calmed fans' nerves somewhat when he said Washington should be ready by mini-camp, and there was no long-term concern.

However, fans went back into panic mode when they heard no in-depth update provided on Smith since they have lived through Smith constantly being unavailable since 2015.

Other players that didn't practice on Wednesday included WR (who was rehabbing on the sideline, but no was found on what he was working through), WR (who's still recovering from his ACL injury), RB (hip), RB , LB (ACL recovery), LB , C , DT , and DT (quad contusion). 

Although we still sit two months away from and over 100 days till the season opener, it should be interesting to see how the Cowboys manage these injuries, but it's not time to push the panic button.

My only advice to fans is to pay close attention to the franchise in the coming weeks (to see if they get more active in to provide depth), but most importantly say your prayers and light your candles for no more injuries since they like to haunt the Cowboys every year.
