The Cowboys will be without WR James Washington for 6-10 weeks because of a fractured right foot suffered Monday, according to multiple sources. He is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday in Dallas.
Immediate reports are ranging from a Jones fracture to a right turf toe. Regardless, if Washington is forced to miss time to begin the year, it will open the door for rookie Jalen Tolbert to operate as the WR3 behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, when the latter returns later this Fall.
The addition of Washington gives Dallas a wideout with more work on the field than incumbent Noah Brown and helps fill out their three-wide sets until Michael Gallup returns. Washington has late-round value so long as the Cowboys do not add a receiver earlier in the NFL Draft.
