Dallas Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley has been missing practices and will continue to stay sidelined at this time until his hamstring tendinitis goes away.¬†Beasley revealed he’s been dealing with this issue since Week 10 of last season, per Brandon George of Dallas SportsDay.

That’s a seven month problem that could be a big reason why the Cowboys drafted Ryan Switzer — a Beasley clone who’s drawing rave reviews — in the fourth round this year.

“(Doctors) say they’ve had guys with an injury like this before and it’s nagged them for a long time and it just went away,” said Beasley. “So it’s kind of like a waiting game. If it doesn’t go away, I can play through it.”

Beasley also said if there were a game today he could play in it. That said, this is a troubling development that we’ll be tracking in the months to come.

Last year, he became a main weapon for then rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. The two of them developed a nice rapport, which led to 75 receptions for 833 yards and five touchdowns.
