Gundy Live: Lunt Should Be Back Late In The Week
Gundy told the hosts that he expects Lunt back making meaningful practice throws later in the week, which means by Thursday, since the Cowboys will again get the weekend off with another bye week on tap.
The highlights from the show:
“He’s doing better. He was out there last night without his knee brace… he had his brace on, but he didn’t have the one that reduces his mobility. He was out there and he was throwing the ball some.
“I think by the end of the week, he’ll be out there and throwing it in practice with us. That type of injury is all based on flexibility and the strength that he can get and how fast he can get it back.”
“At the latter part of the week last week, he didn’t have enough of it. We didn’t feel good. Because of the youth and his career, we want to make sure he’s full speed, feels comfortable – both physically and mentally – before we put him back out there. But we’re thinking he should be back out later in the week.”
On Joseph Randle’s performance againstTexas, prompted by host Eddie George’s ravings about the OSU tailback and his position coach, Jemal Singleton:
“Our running back coach Jemal Singleton is an Air Force graduate. He went to the Academy, he coached at the Academy. They’re old-school running back style. When we hired him, he’s been here now two years, a lot of people wondered why we hired a guy from the wishbone to be in a spread offense, but he’s very intelligent. And he understands toughness. That’s the way we wanted our running backs to compete. Even though we’re a spread team, we wanted them to run through people. We talk about always getting our foot stuck in the ground and getting going north and south.
“Joseph played with some fire and had that look in his eye. We actually had a conversation with him last night, that’s the way he has to play ever game. It’sTexasand it’s national TV and everybody’s watching you, but the good players, the one’s who really want to make a difference, they have to do it against every team we play each week. You’ve got to find a way to motivate yourself.
“I’m hoping that’s the future for Joseph. Being the coach and standing there watching him, I was impressed with him and his ability to run through people and keep his legs moving and take care of the football.”
On the strength of the Big 12:
