Quarterback Sam Darnold got on the field shortly after signing his contract on Monday and his teammates marked the first-rounder’s long-awaited start to training camp with a slow clap.

Coach Todd Bowles said after practice was over that anyone who signs a big contract after missing part of camp is “going to catch ribbing from the team” and that he expects Darnold will handle it without any problem. The rookie has more pressing matters to worry about when it comes to on-field work.

Bowles said “it’ll take some time” for Darnold to get caught up to where the other players are at this point.

“First day of camp for him [url=]Kyle Fuller Jersey[/url] ,” Bowles said, via “It looked like the first day of camp. He’ll get some studying in and he’ll catch up. You understand the ramifications of missing three practices [url=]Ian Thomas Jersey[/url] , but he can catch up and he’s got time to catch up. But he’s got to put his head down, because everybody has a head start.”

Bowles said that he thinks Darnold will have enough practice time to prepare to play in the team’s preseason opener against the Falcons on August 10. If he does [url=]Vontae Davis Jersey[/url] , that should provide a good sense of how much catching up Darnold still has to do.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Marquez White has been indicted on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in what he described as a road-rage incident in suburban Dallas.

The 23-year-old White said in a statement to his hometown newspaper, the Dothan Eagle in Alabama [url=]Margus Hunt Jersey[/url] , that a motorist became angry with White as he drove home in October. White says he pulled a handgun when the motorist appeared to be reaching for his own. He says the other driver followed him home and yelled racial slurs at him.

White, who is black [url=]Dan Hampton Jersey[/url] , was indicted by a Collin County grand jury in early June and arrested June 15. He later posted bond and was released.

White played at Florida State before being drafted by the Cowboys. He spent his rookie season on the practice squad.
