Cowboys expect Lawrence, a new father, to be back for the Saturday and Sunday rookie practices

Defensive end Demarcus Lawrence missed the first day of the rookie minicamp because he and his girlfriend had a baby on Thursday, coach Jason Garrett said.

Garrett said Lawrence made it to Valley Ranch for “a few hours,” but returned to Boise to be with his family. Garrett said the Cowboys expect Lawrence to come back for the Saturday and Sunday practices.

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said he can’t wait to get his hands on the rookie.

“I think he’s got a chance to be a real rusher,” he said. “Got exceptional quickness off the ball. Instantaneous movement to reactions. I really like that. Great motor. Just excited to get him here and get him going.”
