Cowboys player injured by weight bar
AUG 12, 2013 9:28p ET
Weems missed practice Sunday and Monday after dropping a 325-pound bench press bar on himself. Weems has been bothered by a thumb injury lately, which likely led to the accident.
"I'm sure it's pretty painful," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said in comments published by The Dallas Morning News. "We'll see how he is day-to-day."
Garrett was not sure if Weems had a spotter assisting him.
The 6-5, 308-pound Weems, a former standout at Oregon, is attempting to make the roster after being signed off the Broncos' practice squad last December. Weems is with his sixth team in two seasons.
