Dallas Cowboys fifth-round pick Danny Coale said Wednesday afternoon he’s disappointed he’s missing organized team activities because of surgery to repair a broken little toe.
Coale, who is competing for one of the final wide receiver spots on the team, said his goal is to return for training camp that starts in late July.
“It’s not what I wanted to happen,” said Coale, who will wear a walking boot for a week to 10 days. “I see it as a minor setback.”
Coale is not the first person in his family to suffer a broken toe. His brother broke his toe twice in college playing lacrosse and Coale’s father did the same thing.
“I thought I was immune to it,” Coale said.
The rookie receiver suffered the injury at the end of a conditioning drill when he planted his foot.
