With the Cowboys’ lack of established receivers, Cole Beasley, an undrafted rookie out of SMU battling for a spot on the depth chart, is trying to make the most of his opportunity and leaving it all on the field — literally.
Beasley had a breakout game Saturday night against the San Diego Chargers with seven catches for 104 yards. After being tackled in late in the fourth quarter, Beasley made his way to the sideline, but not before losing his lunch on the field.
By Saturday afternoon, the video had gone viral.
“I was tired, but the reason I came off was because I landed on the ball, and the ball knocked the wind out of me and made me have to throw up a little bit,” Beasley told The Dallas Morning News. “Tired had a little bit to do with it, but it was more the ball knocking the air out of me.”
But, should Beasley make the team, evidently we should expect this from him.
“You’ll probably see me throw up a lot more than just then,” Beasley said. “I throw up a lot before the games, too. I’m not ashamed of it at all.”
