As members of the Dallas Cowboys reported Wednesday before training camp, head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that quarterback Dak Prescott should be “a full-fledged participant” at camp after the compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle he sustained last October.

Not all recognizable stars will be active immediately.

Per Todd Archer of ESPN, defensive side DeMarcus Lawrence and wide receiver Amari Cooper open the camp on the physically unable to perform list. Lawrence underwent offseason back surgery and did not participate in any offseason team activities or mandatory mini camp while Cooper is recovering from an offseason ankle surgery.

“It’s more of a cleanup so there’s not a big concern,” McCarthy said of Lawrence’s third surgery, adding “it’s probably more us than him” regarding the pass-rusher’s return.

As for Cooper, McCarthy noted that the recipient has a history of ankle problems that keep the club “smart” before allowing him to practice. According to Nick Shook of the NFL website, Cooper felt “irritation” in the ankle in late June, which prevented him from running and reaching an ideal level of fitness for the start of camp.
