FRISCO – DeMarcus Lawrence is playing with an assortment of injuries right now, and football being football, an NFL injury report in advance of his Dallas Cowboys’ visit to the New York Jets on Sunday is due. “But,’ argues Tank, “Who cares? You care? Be honest. Do you really care? Nobody cares.”
The Cowboys’ vocal defensive leader is frustrated by the two straight losses to contenders that has dipped Dallas’ record down to 3-2. And yes, he’s probably a bit frustrated by the fact that he is being nagged by a shoulder issue, a heel issue and a knee injury.
“Who cares?” he responded to reporters asking about his physical condition. “You care? Be honest. Do you really care? Nobody cares.”Nobody cares about your feelings. Nobody cares if you’re hurt. Nobody cares if you’re broke, rich. Nobody cares. Who cares? Be you. Go to work. Peace.”
Sound advice, so here are CowboysSI.com we will indeed “go to work” .. by demonstrating that we care deeply about the Cowboys injuries. Oh, and we care deeply about the Jets’ injuries, too. To wit, the Cowboys-Jets Injury/Practice Report for Wednesday.
In Dallas, there is hope that starting O-linemen Tyron Smith and La’el Collins can be ready for this one.
And there is the belief that Leighton Vander Esch’s illness-related absence from the Wednesday workout is nothing too severe. Meanwhile, in New York, the 0-4 Jets are hoping the return to the field for another sick patient, QB Sam Darnold.
See? We care. And we go to work. Peace.
