Alarm bells went off at the Dallas Cowboys’ summer training camp after wide receiver James Washington suffered a bad fall and was stretchered off the field.
The Cowboys are hoping for the best regarding the status of veteran wide receiver James Washington. The former second-round pick was taken out of practice on Monday, the first team practice of training camp, after suffering an apparent injury in 7-on-7 drills.
He is currently being evaluated by the Cowboys’ training staff, and it is unknown at this time if he will miss time in the future.
Washington, 26, was signed this offseason as potential help following the trade of four-time Pro Bowl receiver Amari Cooper and the loss of Cedrick Wilson in free agency, but Washington has had ups and downs throughout his career and in his short time with the Cowboys.
He hurt his shoulder on day 1 after diving for a deep pass from quarterback Dak Prescott and, less than a week later, now faces a potentially more worrisome injury.
As Adam Schefter reported Dallas’ trainers and doctors fear Washington has suffered a fractured sole of his foot.
The wide receiver will undergo tests and if the first diagnosis is confirmed his recovery time will be between six and eight weeks.
