Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, shared some wonderful news about three players in their defense.
After their overtime loss to 36-33 by the Las Vegas Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys is currently on a losing streak of two games. They will be facing the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night to end their four-game losing streak.
Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, gave some excellent updates about three of his defensive players on 105.3 The FAN ahead of the primetime match. Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is scheduled to play against the Saints. Randy Gregory and Neville Gallimore, fellow defensive linemen, could be back next week in Dallas for the game against the Washington Football Team.

Jerry Jones shares positive updates about DeMarcus Lawrence and Neville Gallimore.
Lawrence had not played in the season-opener against Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lawrence broke his foot and had to have surgery. He was then placed on the injured reserve. Lawrence, an edge rusher, returned to practice last week in preparation for the Thanksgiving game.
Gallimore has not yet played in the 2021 season. Gallimore was injured in a preseason match against the Arizona Cardinals. He was put on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. Gallimore has just started his 21-day practice.
After the team’s loss to the Denver Broncos (30-16), Gregory sustained a calf injury during practice. He was immediately placed on the IR. Gregory had a total of 10 combined tackles, 12 quarterback hits and five sacks in seven games. He was also responsible for two forced fumbles as well as one fumble recovery.
The Cowboys want to increase their lead over their NFC East counterparts and Lawrence’s return this Thursday, as well as Gallimore and Gregory next week, will certainly help them.
