Coale, a fifth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, suffered the injury during the special teams’ portion of Thursday’s practice while covering a kickoff. He was not touched on the play and needed a cart to get him to the locker room.
He will undergo surgery in a few weeks and the normal recovery from a torn ACL is 6-9 months, which would allow Coale to possibly be back for the June mini-camp.
Coale’s rookie season started badly when he suffered a stress fracture in the first organized team activity that required surgery in the spring. He missed parts of training camp and also had a hamstring strain. He caught two passes for 21 yards in limited preseason work.
He was among the Cowboys final cuts and has spent the season on the practice squad.
Oh, for sure, all is baren desert at Valley Ranch...but if you are using a divining rod to determine whether there is riches of water there yet, get your stick calibrated. One just doesn't know at this point.
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
