Usually when an injury is announced, it has something to do with one of the players on the team. That wasn’t the case at Cowboys practice on Wednesday.
According to multiple reports, Cowboys assistant defensive line coach Leon Lett was carted off the field during the session. He suffered an apparent right leg injury and required the use of crutches after sustaining the injury.
“Cowboys defensive line assistant coach Leon Lett exited today’s practice with an apparent right leg injury. He was evaluated on a cart, given crutches. Being evaluated further now,” Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News tweeted.
“Assistant defensive line coach Leon Lett left Wednesday’s practice with an apparent right leg injury that required crutches as he exited the field. No official word yet on how Lett got injured during the early portion,” wrote Jonny Auping of the Cowboys website.
The 52-year-old has worked as a Cowboys assistant since 2011. The former longtime defensive tackle won three Super Bowls and made two Pro Bowls across 10 seasons with the organization from 1991-2000.
