Just minutes into the team’s first padded practice of the 2020 training camp, the Dallas Cowboys suffered a huge loss on the defensive side of the ball early Monday morning.
According to the Cowboys, Defensive Tackle Gerald McCoy ruptured his right quad while running a practice drill against Antwaun Woods.
Reporters at the scene said the six-time Pro Bowler was in obvious pain and had to be helped from the field.
After a medical evaluation, the Cowboys confirmed that McCoy was indeed done for the 2020 season; team CEO Stephen Jones broke the news to reporters early Monday afternoon.
Back in March, the team signed McCoy to a new 3-year contract worth over 18-million dollars.
