Cowboys' draft pick Wilber likely out until training camp because of broken finger

Outside linebacker Kyle Wilber is going to miss the three weeks of OTAs while he recovers from a broken finger and could be out until training camp starts in July. The Cowboys hope he can be available for some of the mandatory minicamp in June.

Wilber, the Cowboys' fourth-round draft pick, suffered the injury during the rookie minicamp last week at Valley Ranch. The fracture was repaired Tuesday.

“He’ll be able to be involved, but I wouldn’t plan on him being out there this coming week when we begin our OTAs,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday during the team's golf tournament at Cowboys Golf Club.

The first of three OTA sessions is begins May 22 and goes three days.

The next one is scheduled for May 29-31, with the third to follow June 4-7.

A three-day mandatory minicamp is scheduled for June 12-14.

Training camp is expected to begin around July 25.

What are you guys doing down there? Your forth round pick has a broken finger, your third roud pick has a heart murmur and your first rounder has wrist ligament problems. Who's doing your drafting...House?

Wilbur need to Cowboy up. Sean Lee was ballin with a broken/dislocated wrist.

I hear ya Glenn. Didn't take very long for the medical bug to surface.

Third round pick Crawford has a heart murmur and Wilber has a broken finger and he's out until training camp. Hope these guys are OK when the lights come on. Hate to say this, but this not looking good so far.
