Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said “anything is possible” when asked about possibly making an in-season trade. However, Jones admitted that it’s unlikely they will do so.
“That’s certainly not the reason at all for making any contract really adjustments,” Jones said Friday in an interview with 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “It’s really bonusing up what is being paid on a paragraph 5 basis, which is the current year. It’s really bonusing it up and pushing it out a little bit, buying a little bit on the credit card. But we got all of that figured in and have had it figured in for years.”
Vikings Director of Sports Medicine and Head Athletic Trainer Eric Sugarman issued the following statement regarding QB Teddy Bridgewater and the recent knee surgery he underwent”
Teddy Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, TX. The knee dislocation resulted in Teddy needing a multi-ligament reconstruction. I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure. The repair was excellent and gives Teddy every reason to be very optimistic.
Teddy already began the rehab process yesterday, will return to Minnesota to continue on the road to recovery very soon and looks forward to getting back on the field.
