Cowboys wide receiver James Washington suffered a Jones fracture in his foot during Monday’s training camp practice and he’s set to miss around 10 weeks as he recovers from surgery to repair the injury.

Losing Washington leaves the Cowboys short on experienced wideouts beyond CeeDee Lamb. Michael Gallup is not expected to be ready for the start of the regular season as he makes his way back from a torn ACL, which leaves third-round pick Jalen Tolbert, Noah Brown, T.J. Vasher, Simi Fehoko, and the recently signed KaVontae Turpin as the other current options at wideout.

That’s led many to suggest the Cowboys will be looking outside the organization for some help, but team owner Jerry Jones said otherwise on Tuesday.

“I’m plenty satisfied. There is no urgency looking for a veteran receiver,” Jones said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Should the younger wideouts fail to impress in the next few days, the Cowboys may have to revisit that stance.

  1. Cowboys fans better hide. With Jerry insisting on playing Elliott watch the run game get stuffed. Washington is out, Gallup won’t be ready and not even sure how effective he’ll be once he’s back. Then you have a rookie and people way down in the depth chart. The receiving game will suffer.
    The D was good based on takeaways and those don’t sustain. So, the D is likely to regress. Cowboys may miss playoffs (not that they do anything when they get there)

  2. Typical and usual narrow minded thinking by the GM on a run of 26 years and counting of mediocrity…

  3. Jerrah is right. Washington, a second round pick averaged 3 targets per game last year and caught half of those for less than 300 yards total. He struggles to separate from defenders.

  4. someone should ask jerry if his gm is on the hot seat for completely missing the way the offseason was going to develop in the wide receiver market….

    and if he’d give up a fifth (not johnny walker blue) to have good ole amari cooper back in the bunkhouse with the rest of his cowboys?

  5. Jerry ,what are you now 80-85?
    Time to step away and let the people you hired “DO THERE FRICKING JOB” without being “MICRO MANAGED”.

    IT’S time to turn the “reins” over and let Stephen control,
    who is doing alot of talking for the BOYS now days.
    You “Jerry” are just a back drop and a voice , A POWERFULL ONE “but still just a voice”.

    even your own daughter said “DAD THIS AIN’T THE GLORY HOLE DAYS ANY MORE”.
    time to step down and be like other owners and have a MAJOR VOICE in the NFL .for rules,and any other transactions.

    Time to step aside and see what your son can do.

  6. How bout them Cowboys!!! Gonna laugh and watch as the Giants, and Washington pass by ya.

  7. Beckham is recovering from a tear to an already repaired ACL that happened in the Super Bowl. I’m not sure Dallas needs a WR starting in week 14 instead of week 1.
