Cowboys lose Brewster for the season

The Cowboys had no first-round or second-round picks in the 2009 draft.

And they now won’t have the benefit of one of their third-round selections.

According to Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, tackle Robert Brewster will miss the season with a torn pectoral muscle that he suffered during offseason workouts.

I can’t even tell you how disappointed he is,” agent Cliff
Brady told Archer.  “The only thing that might be OK about it is that O-linemen
generally don’t play a lot that first year anyway.  If he can be around
and learn, that may be helpful.  He may not miss too too much,
especially since he’ll be working out.  I’m trying to keep him positive,
‘Look, let’s just take this year to work on you and your body and learn
the system.  You can miss a lot or as little as possible depending on
how smart you are.’  He’s a smart kid.  He just wants to play so bad.”

Brewster is unsigned.  Pursuant to the standard letter of protection signed prior to participating in offseason workouts, Brewster likely will receive a deal commensurate with his slot in the draft.

The former Ball State lineman was the eleventh pick in round three, between 49ers running back Glen Coffee and Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy.

    That may be the wisest thing I’ve heard an agent say. Not exactly saying a lot, but still.

    Not ‘exactly’ correct.
    Dallas DID have a 2nd round selection, but, when Seattle traded up and grabbed Max Unger two spots ahead of them, they traded out of the 2nd round.
    Shame about the Brewster kid, but, in the long run it may be beneficial for him. He was reputed to be a tad ‘underdeveloped’ in the upper body and most likely would not have seen a lot of time on the field this season anyway. This way he goes PUP, then ti IR and has a year to observe, learn and the strength/conditioning coach, Joe Juraseck, has a year to build him up.

    If this was an Eagles injury thread, guaranteed there would be at least 5 gloating ignorant cowboys fanposts at this point.
    I’m happy, as it further weakens this year’s Cowboys draft, though it sucks for the poor guy to get hurt before he ever plays a snap.
