Draft Scout *Demarcus Lawrence News
10/15/14 - DE DeMarcus Lawrence returned to practice Wednesday, and remains on reserve/injured, designated for return. The Cowboys have 21 days to decide whether to activate Lawrence and the earliest he is eligible to play is in two weeks.
10/13/14 - DE Demarcus Lawrence, who fractured a bone in his right foot during training camp and was placed on injured reserve/designated to return, can begin practicing this week. He could return to game action Nov. 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He was drafted in the second round of the 2014 draft to replace defensive end DeMarcus Ware as the team's primary pass rusher.
"He was certainly doing some good things before he got hurt," coach Jason Garrett said. "We're optimistic about his future and his ability to contribute this year. But his job is to get himself healthy, get himself going again, get his feet underneath him and try to improve as a football player."
09/04/14 - DE Demarcus Lawrence was placed on reserve/injured-designated for return by the Cowboys Wednesday (Sept. 3). Lawrence will be eligible to return to practice after Week 6 and can play after Week 8.
05/11/14 - The Cowboys paid "a little extra" to move up in the second round and take defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence in a trade with the Washington Redskins. But they believed he was a player they had to have even if it meant they didn't win on the trade chart. The Cowboys gave up the 47th and 78th overall picks to get the 34th pick from the Redskins to get the pass rusher from Boise State. "It's always painful to give up a pick. I mean, you don't like it. I don't like it," vice-president Stephen Jones said. "But you know, you also got to look at reality -- a little bit between not having a ton of cap space for free agency and then, you know, having a limited number of right ends. And, you know, we a little bit felt motivated to go get the guy we liked. "He fit right in. I mean, in terms of where we had him, he fits perfectly. But in terms of having to give up an extra pick, that part is a little tougher. But we felt like it was worth it. Especially a pass rusher."
The Cowboys began working on the trade Thursday night after the first round was complete. Coach Jason Garrett said the Cowboys believed the best pass rushers available were going to go quickly. Jones said it required giving up "a little more than the charts read out." "As we all know, that can happen sometimes when you want some guy, and we really wanted this guy," he said. Jones said the Cowboys and Redskins talked about the trade all day on Friday. "We have a good relationship with the Redskins," he said. "We worked through the day on some things, and it eventually got time to start, and we sweetened the pot a little bit and got the deal done." - The Sports Xchange
