That’s the off shoot of the ruptured Achilles he suffered Sunday, ending his season.
Church, who made the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2010, finally earned a starting job in 2012 and was looking forward to proving that he belonged only to see his dream taken away three games into the season.
“It’s disappointing but I have to stay up beat and positive for the team,” Church said. “I will continue to do that.”
Church suffered a quad bruise last week against the Seattle on the same leg that the he ruptured the Achilles. He admits that weakness in the quad may have played a role in the injury.
“It was run play,” Church said. “I think it was a freak accident. I went to help on the run and soon as I planted it popped.”
