Report: Cowboys DE Charles Tapper Suffers Concussion

It’s been a tumultuous few years for Cowboys defensive end Charles Tapper. The former fourth round pick of the Dallas Cowboys, Charles Tapper’s young career has been defined by injuries and missed time.

And, unfortunately for Tapper, it appears we must add another injury to the list. Reports out of Dallas Cowboys OTAs are stating that Tapper suffered a concussion in practice on the 29th, and is scheduled to miss practice on the 30th.

How Charles Tapper suffered a concussion in a non-contact practice is unknown, but you certainly have to feel for the guy.

Charles Tapper has the measurables and athleticism to be a top tier pass rusher in this league, but inconsistencies in his actual play and health have handcuffed him through the beginning of his career. While his Mockdraftable spider chart looks promising, we haven’t gotten many chances to watch those traits in action thus far.

Hopefully, for both Charles Tapper and the Dallas Cowboys, he can get right and stay healthy in 2018.
