OXNARD, Calif. —
In the meantime, first-round pick Travis Frederick is finally getting some work at guard after spending all the offseason workouts at center.
Garrett said outside help wasn’t coming immediately on the defensive line because the Cowboys have to wait to sign anyone so they can protect Crawford’s roster spot. But Dallas will explore the market at some point.
“We have a lot of young guys who we like, guys we want to see more of,” Garrett said. “This gives them a chance to show us what they can do.”
The Cowboys ended up with another hamstring injury Monday with tight end James Hanna, but Garrett said he expected the second-year player to be back soon.
“Hamstring injuries have been around for a long time,” Garrett said. “That’s probably the No. 1 injury that people have. There’s a lot of running that goes on in football and sometimes guys get jerked a certain way and they pull their hamstrings.”
