    Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence and CB Byron Jones to Start 2019 Camp on PUP

    The will be missing two of their defensive leaders when they open 2019 this Saturday. DeMarcus Lawrence and Byron Jones will both start camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List as they recover from surgeries.

    Lawrence, who got a new five-year contract in April, immediately underwent shoulder surgery once his deal was finalized. DeMarcus reportedly was waiting for contract negotiations to be completed before he had the procedure.

    Jones had hip surgery in late May. He is playing 2019 on the fifth-year option from his original contract, and is no doubt hoping for his own long-term extension sometime in the near future.

    Neither Lawrence or Jones, who are both coming of seasons in 2018, are expected to be absent once the regular season starts in September. But either participating in this year's training camp is doubtful, and even appearances are in question right now.

    With DeMarcus out at DE, newcomers like and will get plenty of chances to show their stuff.  It's also a nice opportunity for , assuming he's recovered from his own offseason surgery, to get some work against the first-team .

    No Byron at CB will give a nice opportunity to work with the starters as well. He was likely stuck at the 4th spot behind Jones, , and but should now get more time on the field and against the best competition.
