The Dallas Cowboys have been bitten by the injury bug in a big way during the first quarter of the 2017 NFL season.
Specifically, their secondary has been battling to stay healthy, and it’s shown at times. First, it was Orlando Scandrick who suffered a broken hand, but he’s since returned from the injury. Then both Nolan Carroll (concussion) and rookie Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) missed two games.
Fortunately, every name above is expected back soon, and possibly even this coming weekend. Specifically, though, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke about his rookies in the secondary and was confident that they’ll be ready to improve the situation.

Obviously, the Cowboys like what they’ve seen from Jourdan Lewis, and the No. 25 that Jones speaks about is rookie sixth-round draft pick Xavier Woods, who’s certainly been a pleasant surprise.
Regardless, having all of these young players is a great sign for both 2017 and the future, but now they just need to find a way to remain on the field and stay healthy.
