Dallas Cowboys second-round defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will miss the next eight to 10 weeks with a broken right foot, according to ESPN Dallas.

He'll need surgery.

Lawrence got hurt Tuesday during practice in a pass-rushing drill.

Lawrence was carted off the field.

Lawrence was competing with Jeremy Mincey for a starting job.

The Cowboys had been banking on Lawrence helping their pass rush before the injury after an offseason where DeMarcus Ware signed with the Denver Broncos.
