The Dallas Cowboys are preparing to board a plane to Oxnard, CA so that they can get the ship going in the right direction.
While things seemed relatively smooth heading into July, things have been shaken up a bit by contract situations that are not ideal for the players in question.
Also, the team has a small number of injury concerns that may or may not impact eligibility to be full participants once the on-field work begins.
Check below on the latest updates from ESPN’s Todd Archer on Zack Martin, Jourdan Lewis, Terence Steele and Tony Pollard.
Tony Pollard Pollard is the only player who needs updates on two fronts. NFL running backs are having a (relative) financial crisis and Pollard is smack in the middle of it.
Three of the league’s best runners (Pollard, Josh Jacobs and Saquon Barkley) were hit with franchise tags by their respective teams this spring.
RT Terence Steele More good injury news as it appears Steele will not be on PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, either.
The right tackle tore his ACL and missed the end of the season, but is apparently far enough along the club will not sideline him.
CB Jourdan Lewis The bit of bad news is that Lewis will start camp on the PUP list.
The veteran slot corner is really good and entering the final season of his three-year extension.
His absence (foot- Lisfranc injury) in the last half of 2022 opened the door for then-rookie DaRon Bland to excel, leading the club in interceptions with five.
