This is unfortunate news for Quinn, who was looking to capitalize on a contract year with a new team. The Cowboys remain optimistic that he will be set to return for week one of the regular season, but we won't have a more concrete time table until after his surgery. Kerry Hyder has been working with the starters while Quinn is absent.
Quinn had been having a good camp and looked to comprise one of the better pass-rush tandems in the league playing opposite Demarcus Lawrence. Bitten by the injury bug in 2015, Robert has struggled to regain the dominant numbers he posted during his rookie contract. Currently DLF's DL50, 29 years old, and injured, Robert Quinn is a boom-bust pick best suited for big play formats.
