Draft Scout Barry Church News
09/10/13 - S Barry Church had a spectacular return to the field after missing most of last season with a torn Achilles. Church had eight tackles, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble, returning it 27 yards for a touchdown, in the Cowboys' season-opening, 36-31 victory over the Giants. He was named the Cowboys player of the game and given a pair of boxing gloves, representing the team motto to "keep fighting."
"It felt great just to get back out there and produce the way I produced," Church said. "It felt great to be out there with my teammates and doing what we do best and creating turnovers. It felt great."
Church started for only the fifth time in his career. He won the strong safety job in camp last year and even had a fumble recovery against the Giants in the 2012 opener. But he tore his Achilles' tendon in Week 3 against Tampa Bay and went on injured reserve.
