Last week, the Dallas Cowboys called on Kevin Ogletree to step into the lineup to help replace Dez Bryant, who will miss the rest of the season with a fractured fibula. This week, Ogletree himself is questionable, with a foot injury suffered late in Sunday night’s loss to Philadelphia.
Ogletree could be seen at team headquarters at Valley Ranch on Monday wearing a protective walking boot, and was described by interim head coach Jason Garrett as being day to day, approaching Sunday afternoon’s match-up with the Washington Redskins.
“We are going to evaluate it day to day and see how it goes,” said Garrett, per the Dallas Morning News. “He got banged up pretty good. The initial reports were okay. We will see as the next couple of days unfold.”
Ogletree, who was the third leading receiver in Sunday’s loss with three catches for 34 yards--his only catches of the year thus far--told reporters Monday that he wouldn’t jump to any conclusions as to his status for Sunday.
“It's part of football,” Ogletree said.
