The Cowboys already have a ton of question marks at defensive end. DeMarcus Lawrence was the only surefire thing and now, thanks to COVID-19, that may no longer be the case.
While indications are that Lawrence will play this season, there’s no certainty for how long. His wife is due in October and he’s already made his concerns regarding the virus well-known. Should the risk of infection outweigh the reward of playing, there’s a very good chance the Cowboys could lose him for at a few games, if not the entire season. That would obviously be a huge blow for the defense but I don’t think anyone would fault him for opting-out due to safety.
