DeMarcus Lawrence's recovery on track

DeMarcus Lawrence is a month away from practicing and six weeks from being eligible to play in a game, but the Dallas Cowboys rookie defensive end received some good news on Monday.

Lawrence had his surgically-repaired right foot examined by doctors and was told "everything's on track with my recovery."

The Cowboys put Lawrence on injured reserve/designated to return on Sept. 2. He can return to practice on Oct. 13 and play Nov. 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He has yet to start running, but he is doing more work in the weight room and started some resistance training,

"We're waiting a little bit more for it to heal better for that," Lawrence said of running.

The time off will not only help Lawrence heal, but he sees a benefit to learning by watching as a rookie.

"It's hard because I want to be out there with the team, but other than that it's just a process," Lawrence said. "Go week by week just in the playbook and in the film room just trying to get my mindset right so when I do return everything is going to be what I expect it to be."

The Cowboys hope a fresh Lawrence can bring a jolt to a pass rush as other players start getting worn down by the grind of the season.

"That's the point," he said with a smile.
