Cowboys linebacker hurt in paintball outing gone awry

Speaking of “never again”, that’s probably what second-year Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson is saying after he took a ball to the eye during a recent paintball expedition. The mishap has left Wilson sidelined him for the start of training camp.

“That’s real hard to grasp and figure those issues,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday, according to “I’m being trite when I say it because it’s a serious enough issue to keep him off the field for a couple of weeks.”

Poor Wilson started camp on the NFI list and the team hopes to get him back in about 10 days. Next time he should just come to the bar with me.

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Chargers first-round draft pick, defensive end Joey Bosa, will not report with his teammates Friday as he remains unsigned, according to a source close to Bosa.

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco confirmed that the main sticking point in stalled contract talks between the club and first-round pick, defensive end Joey Bosa, is how guaranteed bonuses are distributed.

A source close to Bosa said the No. 3 overall pick would like his bonuses all up front. The Chargers have offered to pay Bosa in two installments, with the heftier amount coming at the first payment.

One notable name missing from the Cowboys’ team charter to training camp in Southern California: linebacker Rolando McClain. It’s worth wondering if the suspended starter will join the team ever again.

Joe Flacco participated in his first full practice since tearing his ACL last season. He wasn’t thrilled with his accuracy, but just his presence on the field is great news for the Ravens.
