DT Brent Urban, CB Maurice Canady Placed on Injured Reserve

The Dallas Cowboys started their week of practice off the bye with good news on QB , WR , and CB , but now have two players heading to injured reserve. Defensive Brent Urban has been placed on IR with a triceps while cornerback Maurice Canady is dealing with a concussion.

  1. Really starting to get irritated by the type of articles being written, they all circle around one or two items and lots of memes, or regurgitated opinions out there being circulated as facts. I’d really like to find out how the guys on IR are doing with their rehabs.
