David Irving Suffered A Concussion, Didn’t Practice

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys suffered a surprising injury on Thursday night.

The Cowboys got back to work today, following a few extra days off with the Thursday game last week.  It appears that the Cowboys suffered an injury that we didn’t hear much about during the game.

Cowboys suffer an injury that might be alarming moving forward!

David Irving suffered a concussion against the Redskins, and continues to go through the concussion protocol (via Todd Archer).

“Defensive end David Irving will not practice today because of a concussion suffered in the win against Washington.  He will work out off to the side as he gets through the protocol in hopes of playing Sunday against the New York Giants.”

This is news that nobody wants to hear.  Since his return from his four-game suspension to start the year, Dallas has had a dominate duo with Irving and DeMarcus Lawrence.  The pair of pass rushers have made each other better, as teams can’t concentrate on one or the other.

It’s only Wednesday, so there’s still some time to get cleared for Irving.  The practice date that is very important will be on Friday.  If Irving is unable to go by then, it might look more likely that he will be out on Sunday.  As it sits right now, let’s just think positive and expect Irving to be out there on Sunday, unless we are told otherwise.

Dallas did see their defensive leader back on the practice field.  Sean Lee was able to return to practice, following his three-game absence due to a hamstring injury.  He is said to be a go come Sunday at New York.

The latest news of the concussion should be a cause for alarm, but we shouldn’t panic over it!
