The Cowboys are pointing to mid-week to have rookie receiver Danny Coale practicing.
He passed his conditioning test Friday and is ready to be taken off the physically unable to perform list. He had been recovering from a broken foot he suffered in the rookie minicamp the week after the draft, when the Cowboys took him in the fifth round out of Virginia Tech.
“Danny did the test yesterday. He passed it with flying colors,” Garrett said. “Afterwards he ran some routes. It doesn’t seem like he has any issue physically. We want to make sure we have given that thing enough time, so over the course of the next three days, as he works his way back off of PUP, we feel that is adequate enough time. We will continue to evaluate it and put him in the practice tempo he is capable of handling each day.”
“His dad is a strength coach at the college level. He has grown up with the idea of work ethic, and you see that in everything he does,” Garrett said. “Disappointing for us and him that he got hurt early in the offseason program. He has handled the offseason well. ... His approach has been outstanding. He has stayed engaged with the installation. He will be behind once he gets back out there because everybody else has been practicing football. But we feel good about how quickly he can get himself up to speed and start playing.”
