Cowboys | Whitley sidelined

Todd Archer, of the Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys rookie OL E.J. Whitley (knee) had surgery Tuesday, May 30, on a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He was injured during a rookie minicamp this month. "Jerry Jones told E.J. immediately after it happened that he thought it could be a positive, that he could use the off-season to learn and get acclimated and work in the weight room," Whitley's agent, Jeff Nalley, said. Whitley will miss the 2006 season. The rookies signed injury protection waivers before the minicamp, meaning the Cowboys would negotiate a contract in good faith regardless of the severity of an injury.
