    I heard he tore his ACL, can anyone confirm this? If so, he has had absolutely horrible luck with injuries this year.

    My understanding is that Coale was going in for an MRI on it yesterday or today, so the full extent of the problem may not be known yet.

    Do they even have to officially report injuries to guys who are not on the 53 man roster?

    Yeah, I remember a tweet from somebody that said he had to be helped off the field.

    I'm not sure but probably they don't have to report it since he is not on the report as of this morning. It's odd though that the only place I see this online is at the BTB site. I looked over the Cowboys site and didn't see a mention of it but I could have missed it.

    Just tweeted Bryan Broaddus and he said he has an "ACL problem" and that he would have surgery in a few weeks.

    So I am guessing he is done.

    Doesn't matter, he wouldn't have gotten a shot this year anyways.

    He's been done. So has Matt Johnson. Both are the most fragile pieces of glass ever. But I'm sure the inept front office will keep both around

    I'm very excited to see what both Coale and Johnson bring to training camp next year. Hopefully we'll get some definitive news on Coale soon.

    So what happens to practice squad players that get hurt? do they on on IR or are they released with some injury settlement? Just curious.

    Well it clearly costs so much to keep them around, I can see why you would want to get rid of them right away. :rolleyes:

    Can't possibly show any patience.

    Why the hate? The guys are hurt. Lee is hurt again, but you don't crap on him.

    I just don't understand why people here want to hate Cowboys players.

    After watching what Sean Lee and Bruce carter can bring to the game We the Fans should be willing to give benefit of doubt to the Front office and coaching staff. if Danny and Mats can be a decent players red shirting this year is well worth it.

    There are a ton of guys in this league that started just like both of them and went on to successful careers. But hey, be a premature evaluator.

    Fragile piece of glass, that just so happened to start four seasons at Virginia Tech in a run heavy offense without getting hurt? Pure luck right?

    The league scrap pile is littered with successful college players.

    I'm not writing him off, but it doesn't look good right now.

    I don't hate any players...I just think it's ridiculous at how fragile these supposed NFL players are. These two have injured themselves while nursing injuries...it's a joke to me.
