LB Chris Gocong appears to be lost for the season after injuring his right Achilles tendon. Head coach Pat Shurmer was pretty direct about it - "There's no point in trying to conceal anything. It's an Achilles," he said.
WR Miles Austin “tweaked” his hamstring. According to DallasCowboys.com, the team is not overly concerned despite the fact that Austin missed six games with a hamstring injury last season.
As per @ttwentyman, DE Cliff Avril reported to camp this morning, thus ending his holdout.
Rookie WR Greg Childs may be done for the season after suffering a gruesome leg injury during last night’s practice. Childs had to be carted off the field, and early indications are that he tore both patella tendons.
