Cowboys rookie Lawrence sidelined with broken foot

Oxnard, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Dallas Cowboys rookie defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-3 months because of a broken foot.

Lawrence was hurt during practice on Tuesday and coach Jason Garrett said surgery is forthcoming at a media briefing on Wednesday.

"He'll have to go back to Dallas and have surgery on it," said Garrett. "He was off to a good start in camp. There's still a lot of football left in the season after 8-to-12 weeks."

The Cowboys selected Lawrence with the 34th overall pick of the draft. He posted 20 sacks in two seasons at Boise State.
