Cochart gaining comfort with Cowboys' offense, says he could contribute if needed against Giants

Dallas Cowboys' reserve tight end Colin Cochart, claimed on waivers Saturday from Cincinnati, spent time after today’s practice working on route-running with Jason Witten and brushing up on blocking schemes with tight ends coach John Garrett. Witten, the Cowboys’ starter, will have a CT scan of his lacerated spleen Tuesday to determine if he will play in Wednesday’s opener against the New York Giants.

Regardless of Witten’s availability, Cochart said he has grasped enough of the Dallas offense in his first 48 hours with the playbook to be useful in selected situations against the Giants.

“Sure,” Cochart said. “I think there’s definitely some run plays where I could contribute. I’m not used to the … route-running quite yet. But there’s definitely some goal-line stuff. If they needed me (there), I could contribute for sure.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett described Cochart as a smart player who has “picked things up pretty quickly” and could contribute, if needed, against the Giants.
