Now Jones will be instrumental in Lewis’ next act: Rebuilding the team after losing its No. 2 and 3 wide receivers, offensive coordinator and Pro Bowl safety. There is change every offseason, but the Bengals are approaching the type of hurdle that can bring down even the best of infrastructures.
The Cowboys placed Rolando McClain and Randy Gregory on reserve/did not report, Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones told reporters. McClain has yet to report to camp after missing his flight this week and Gregory is in rehab.
The Cowboys also announced running back Lance Dunbar, defensive lineman Maliek Collins, defensive end Benson Mayowa and tight end James Hanna will be placed on the PUP list. In addition, the Cowboys placed running back Darren McFadden, linebacker Jaylon Smith and linebacker Damien Wilson on the non-football injury list.
Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan feels rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson’s pain.
McCloughan arrived at training camp sporting a hand wrap courtesy of the Achilles’ tendon soreness that kept Doctson out of organized team activities sessions in May.
Former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley unpacked McCloughan’s curious story on Washington’s WTEM-AM.
“I said, ‘What happened to your hand?'” Cooley recalled Friday, via the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “He said, ‘when I found out about Doctson’ — which they thought was going to be much worse, the Doctson injury, apparently it isn’t going to be as bad — ‘I punched the wall.'”
Doctson initially couldn’t believe the Redskins’ GM actually did that.
“I thought he was playing around, but he was being for real,” Doctson said. “You know, it’s just what they believe I can do. They trust me.”
The Redskins eschewed more dire team needs in the first round of the draft because they couldn’t resist Doctson’s talent as the best player available.
