On Tuesday, rookie receiver Danny Coale was back on the field for the first time since suffering a fractured left foot on the first day of organized team activities back in May, and though he admitted his route running wasn’t quite where it was prior to the injury, the fifth round pick out of Virginia Tech was happy to just be back with his teammates following a layoff of more than two months.
“It was awesome to be out here,” Coale said, per the Dallas Morning News.
Coale is one of a handful of receivers thought to be in the mix, so to speak, for the vacant Nos. 3 and 4 receiver roles. But after being sidelined for such a considerable amount of time, the rookie is just looking to play catch-up and adjust to the NFL game as quickly as possible.
“It’s just the mechanics of getting back into it,” he said. “There will be a learning curve here. But hopefully it won’t last too long and we can get things going.”
