A Dallas Cowboys wide receiver suffered what appeared to be a leg injury during Monday's practice.
James Washington was running a go route vs. Cowboys defensive back Trevon Diggs. Washington and Diggs collided when making a play on the ball, and Washington landed awkwardly as a result.
"Cowboys WR James Washington is injured, not putting weight on right leg after play," said Michael Gehlken.
The new Cowboys wide receiver remained on the ground for a few seconds before attempting to get to his feet. He was unable to put much weight on his right leg and had to limp to the sideline. Washington was later carted to the locker room with the medical staff by his side.
"James Washington left practice on a cart after suffering apparent right leg/knee injury. He was running a go route and may have landed awkwardly. He’s getting looked at in the locker room by the medical staff," wrote Todd Archer.
James Washington is expected to play a significant role in the Cowboys passing attack this upcoming season. Let's hope this is nothing serious.
Washington spent the last four years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he caught 114 passes for 1,629 yards and 11 touchdowns. He projects as a backup to CeeDee Lamb this upcoming season.
