Robert Quinn, new defensive end of the NFL team Dallas Cowboys injured his hand badly during the Thursday morning practice.
Quinn will need a surgery for the injury but is most likely to be agile on September 8th the season opener game, said Stephen Jones; the executive Vice President of the team. Joins also said that Quinn will now leave the team in Oxnard California and will undergo his surgery in Dallas.
He suffered his injury during the one-on-one drill of lineman against Tyron Smith; the left tackle of the Pro Bowl.
Qin n was traded in by the Cowboys back in March after Randy Gregory got his 4th suspension due to violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Quinn is expected to start this season as the right end opposite to team’s DeMarcus Lawrence.
Dallas was happy with their trade option of Quinn especially after the eight practices but before he got his hand fractured. He actually exceeded their expectations.
With this, Quinn is going to be third DE of the Cowboys to miss the practice; earlier were Lawrence and Crawford. Lawrence is in rehab from his offseason shoulder injury while Crawford is recovering from his hip surgery. Still, all of them are expected to make it to the season opener.
