Rookie Danny Coale will require surgery for fractured foot

Rookie receiver Danny Coale will need surgery after fracturing his left foot on the first day of organized team activities at Valley Ranch, a source said. The Cowboys hope he can return for the start of training camp in late July. Rookies and select veterans are scheduled to practice a few days before the team arrives in Oxnard, Calif., on July 28.

Coale, a fifth-round pick from Virginia Tech, was a candidate for the No. 3 receiver, along with Kevin Ogletree, Andre Holmes, Raymond Radway and Dwayne Harris. But the injury will give the others a chance to climb ahead in the position battle.

He is the third draft pick out with an injury, and defensive end Tyrone Crawford, a third-round pick, was diagnosed with a heart murmur at the combine, though he will not miss any practice time. Cornerback Morris Claiborne, a first-round pick, is rehabbing from left wrist surgery performed before the draft. Linebacker Kyle Wilber, a fourth-round pick, fractured his right index finger in the rookie minicamp and will not return until training camp.

He'll be fine and Danny will be back before we know it. Danny to push Ogletree??? Are you kidding me? When completley healthy Coale and Radway are far better than Ogletree. Sure Ogletree has said the "right things" but go and prove it..good idea is by knowing the playbook after how many years???

Just wish Dany would wear #87 instead of the tainted #81.

I was really looking forward to see what Coale could do and at a minimum was hoping that he would push Ogletree more.... I hope that he is able to come back sooner rather then later.
