jrockster21 Posted May 18, 2005 Share Posted May 18, 2005 http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2063030 Dallas Cowboys: Linebacker Kevin Burnett, the club's second-round draft choice and the 42nd player selected overall last month, has undergone hip surgery. The former University of Tennessee standout will miss next week's minicamp sessions, but Cowboys officials expect him to be recovered in time for the start of training camp. Burnett tore the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee in 2002, but his injury history does not include any previous hip problems. He participated in all the on-field workouts at the team's first minicamp of the spring. With the Cowboys transitioning to a 3-4 front for this season, Burnett was expected to vie for considerable playing time, and to possibly challenge for the starting job at stongside linebacker. A two-year starter for the Volunteers, he finished his college career with 274 tackles and eight sacks. In an off-field matter, the Cowboys did not renew the contract of Bryan Broaddus, the club's assistant director of pro scouting. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
