Barry Church misses practice for root canal

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Cary Williams must have nodded a knowing nod, even if he didn’t know why.

Cowboys safety Barry Church missed Monday’s walk-through, after having a root canal, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“I guess it’s been bothering him for a little bit,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s a tough individual, but I guess he had a little incident this morning, so hopefully we’ll get that cleaned up and he’ll be ready to roll.”

The Cowboys used rookie J.J. Wilcox in his place. There’s no word on whether Church needs to attend a dance recital at any point during camp.

    Somehow I think they wouldn’t have been nearly as forgiving if his name was Barry Root Canal and he skipped practice for church.

    Cowboys were very understanding. When Barry called in to say he couldn’t make it to practice, they said “No problem, enjoy your day off!”.

    Of course, one is a medical procedure and the other one is a man made fairytale.

    How does a guy who’s been in the league since 2010, got 4 million guaranteed last October not be able to afford a visit to a dentist and avoid a root canal all together the past 3 years.

    You don’t just stroll into and say hey I like a root canal.

    Maybe he did stroll in and say like Bill Murray in “little shop of horrors” “I want a long slow root canal”
