Sad News: Cowboys Star Sends Strong Message to Injured ‘Brother’ LVE….

We have seen this kind of Cowboys news before, with word out now that the team is losing Leighton Vander Esch to a neck injury for the season. In fact, the first major Cowboys news of the season was the loss of cornerback Trevon Diggs in the Week 2 win over the Jets.

Even as Dallas has gotten back on track with its performance against the Giants, a 49-17 domination in Week 10, the news that Vander Esch, who has not played since reinjuring his neck in Week 5 against the 49ers, will miss the whole year cast a pall on the team this week.

There were messages aplenty for LVE on Wednesday at the Cowboys practice facility. One player who will feel his loss on the field, and off, is star pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence.

“It’s hard to lose a brother like Leighton,” Lawrence told reporters after practice. “He’s somebody that we rely on each and every day, especially as a MIKE backer. Definitely gotta show our gratitude for him and what he did for us over the last years, man.

“But, you know, we still with him and he’s still with us in spirit. He’s still up here each and every day, working on his self and helping us and some of our young linebackers out. We definitely appreciate him and pray for him to continue to get better.”
