Cowboys teammates, coaches have Ryan Switzer’s back after muffed punt

There is certainly an argument to be made that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver/punt return Ryan Switzer’s muffed punt in Week 4 changed the momentum of the game. But, his teammates don’t want to hear any of it and are completely supporting their teammate.

Switzer muffed the punt with the Cowboys up 17-6 near his own end zone, leading to the Los Angeles Rams recovering and scoring soon after to make it a four-point game. As Mike Fisher of CBS DFW reports, everyone from head coach Jason Garrett to running back Ezekiel Elliott and veteran tight end Jason Witten is publicly supporting their teammate.

“He’s just got to keep his confidence up,” said Jason Witten. “That’s a tough position to be in. It’s hard to play that spot.’’

“He’ll get back,’’ Witten said. “He’s a young player. He’ll bounce back.”

Added Ezekiel Elliott: “I told him don’t worry about it. We all got to do better. It wasn’t just his mistake that cost us the game.”

As for Garrett, he took a bit more stern of an approach, stating that “obviously that was a big play,” but as 105.3 The FAN quoted, Garrett said there’s plenty of confidence in Switzer still.
