Cowboys WR James Washington will miss “at least” two months with a fractured foot, according to Clarence Hill Jr.
Washington will have surgery to address the issue.
The team’s depth at receiver will be tested early on, with WR Michael Gallup already declaring himself out for Week 1.
Washington, 25, was selected in the second round out of Oklahoma State in the 2018 NFL Draft. He played out the final year of his four-year, $4,501,346 rookie contract that included a $1,353,704 signing bonus and made a base salary of $1,093,820 for the 2021 season.
Washington was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career when he signed with the Cowboys.
In 2021, Washington appeared in 15 games for the Steelers and caught 24 passes for 285 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
