Well this is almost a disastrous start to training camp. We heard some news on Rolando McClain’s failed drug test, a couple of injuries, and a possible signing by the team.
News came out recently that Rolando McClain’s failed drug test was due to purple drank. Now if you do not know what this is, it is a combination of sprite, codeine, and cough syrup. This was and might still be a popular drink among rappers. Lil Wayne was famous for drinking this as well as Lil Jon in the mid to late 2000’s. I’m not sure if this is better news but it’s news.
Kellen Moore will be out a few months with an injury and the team is now stating that Nick Foles might be a good option. Kellen has a broken right fibula and could take 3-4 months to recover. Nick Foles was released by the Rams per his request, and could find a home on several teams looking for a backup. If he really wants a chance to play, Dallas might not be a bad landing spot due to Tony Romo’s injury history.
Ezekiel Elliott is going to miss some time after tweaking his hamstring. The good news is that it could be about a week but these types of injuries can linger at times. We will keep monitoring the situation ourselves.
