Dallas rookie Josh Price-Brent suffers broken hand

Josh Price-Brent’s NFL career got off to a rough start.

Selected by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month in the supplemental draft, Price-Brent suffered an injury in the first training camp practice Sunday morning. Although coach Wade Phillips initially announced that Price-Brent suffered a broken finger, the Dallas Morning News’ Todd Archer revealed that it was actually a broken left hand.

The good news is no surgery will be required for the defensive tackle from Illinois. He’s not expected to miss a lot of practice time, but he’s working from behind as it is because he obviously was not present for any of the offseason program. We’ll see how soon he can get back on the field because learning in the classroom and learning on the field are two entirely different monsters. Price-Brent needs to have a strong training camp and preseason to ensure a job. Teams, though, are reluctant to cut players chosen in the supplemental draft but if he has an injury that would allow the team to move him to injured reserve, well, that’s something different.
