A person with knowledge of the decision says the Cowboys have placed the franchise tag on Lawrence, guaranteeing the Pro Bowl defensive end $17.5 million in 2018. The Cowboys had until Tuesday, March 6, 2018 to put the tag on Lawrence. The 25-year-old can still sign a long-term deal with the club that traded up him to get him early in the second round in 2014. Lawrence tied Jacksonville’s Calais Campbell for second in the NFL with 14 1/2 sacks last season. (AP Photo, file)


FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will miss significant time after breaking a foot in practice. The club’s best pass rusher is expected to miss 6-8 weeks. The injury to Lawrence comes with the Cowboys preparing to be without their other starting defensive end in Randy Gregory when they visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Gregory is on the COVID-19 reserve list. Tarell Basham and Dorance Armstrong are the likely starters without Lawrence and Gregory.
