NFL: James Washington to miss six to ten weeks with right foot injury

With issues already surrounding their receiving corps, the Dallas Cowboys will be without James Washington for six to 10 weeks with a broken right foot.
He is expected to have surgery Tuesday in Dallas.

Washington was injured Monday during the first practice session of training camp, on a deep ball during a seven-on-seven drill, when his foot got stuck under Trevon Diggs.

Michael Gallup is currently on the physically unable to perform list as he continues to recover from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He will certainly miss the start of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

CeeDee Lamb is expected to be Dak Prescott’s primary target, while Noah Brown is currently the team’s only other NFL-experienced receiver. The Cowboys selected Jalen Tolbert in the third round last draft from South Alabama and appreciate his potential.

In four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Washington caught 114 passes for 1,629 yards and 11 touchdowns.
