DE DeMarcus Lawrence Taken Off PUP List, Can Return to Practice

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t had the best injury news throughout the first two weeks of camp, though none of their star player’s concerns are considered long-term. This is the case for DeMarcus Lawrence, who was activated from the PUP list today. Lawrence can begin practicing ahead of Thursday’s Hall of Fame game, though he likely won’t play in Canton.

Rob Phillips on Twitter: “DeMarcus Lawrence (back) has passed his physical and has been taken off the Active/PUP list, so he’s eligible to begin practicing. Not sure if he’ll get into any drills today, though. / Twitter”

DeMarcus Lawrence (back) has passed his physical and has been taken off the Active/PUP list, so he’s eligible to begin practicing. Not sure if he’ll get into any drills today, though.

The left defensive end position belongs to Lawrence as long as he’s healthy, with Randy Gregory becoming one of the stories of training camp at right end. Being able to work Lawrence and Gregory into practice drills together will help the entirety of the Cowboys defense when it comes time to prepare for gameday.

Lawrence is returning from offseason back surgery, his third procedure on his back over his career. Head Coach Mike McCarthy called this most recent surgery “more of a cleanup”, with the team taking the more cautious approach to his return as opposed to the eight-year veteran.

Lawrence has played in all 16 regular season games for the past four seasons, leading the team in sacks in all but one.

  1. Could somebody please explain to me how in the world DL is already hurt ? If I’m not mistaken he was hurt even before training camp opened up! If his back is that bad wouldn’t it be better for his future health to just retire? It just looks like to me that after being out of football for around six months he along with AC would be rested and ready for a long season! I like both of these guys but they are being paid very well to be ready to come to work when the season starts!! This kinda reminds me of the picture where Tony Romo is lying on the ground and a referee is standing over him saying…….get up Tony it’s just the coin toss!
