Cowboys Place Rookie DE DeMarcus Lawrence On Short-Term IR, Re-Sign DE Jack Crawford

 

The Cowboys announced that they have placed rookie DE DeMarcus Lawrence on injured reserve with the designated to return Tuesday.

This means that Lawrence will miss first eight games of the 2014 season.

Lawrence unfortunately sustained a broken right foot while working against LT Tyron Smith a month ago. He is expected to miss 8-12 weeks, so this move makes a lot of sense for the Cowboys.

During his two years at Boise State, Lawrence recorded 120 tackles, 34 tackles for a loss, 20 sacks, seven forced fumbles, one interception and a fumble recovery.
