He was later seen wearing a knee brace on Friday and left practice Monday with an apparent leg problem.

26) If the season started today, the Cowboys’ top three wide receivers would likely be Cee Dee Lambrookie Jalen Tolbert Y noah brown. An unrecruited rookie named dennis houston has been getting some time with that!
28) As the Cardinals take the 2021 first-round pick Zaven Collins off the field in passing and speaking of their learning curve, they are creating a new “star” position by Isaiah Simmons.
