Rickie Fowler’s Tee Time

Rickie Fowler will tee off this weekend in The Northern Trust Open, which is the first of four FedEx Cup playoff tournaments. The famous former Cowboy will be paired with former No. 1-ranked golfer in the world Dustin Johnson and likely Rookie-of-the-Year winner Jon Rahm. The group is set to tee off on Thursday at 1:06 PM EST from the first tee. Friday, the same group will tee off hole No. 10 at 8:26 EST. Let's hope Rickie can get the win this weekend.

Michael Hunter Injured

Just as we posted yesterday that Michael Hunter is impressing with the New York Giants this preseason, he went down with a concussion last night in the game against the Browns. With the injury to Eli Apple, Hunter was working his way to a starting role. Hopefully the concussion is not serious and he can get back on the field as soon as possible. Get well soon, Michael!

Brad Lundblade in the Tulsa World

Mark Cooper wrote a fantastic article on senior center Brad Lundblade. He has been a mainstay on an offensive line that has lots of turnover around him. He's started 26 consecutive games and will hopefully stay healthy this season. He has definitely been an unsung hero for the Cowboys, and with his experience he will be a continued force on the offensive line.

Offensive line coach Josh Henson, who is the third coach to work with Lundblade, said the center from Argyle, Texas, has improved since the spring in his technique, hands and footwork.

As the “quarterback of the offensive line,” a player with Lundblade’s experience is tremendous, Henson said. Though the coach is happy with backups Johnny Wilson and Ry Schneider, Lundblade’s experience allows him to see things others can’t.

The Solar Eclipse

As you all probably know, the first solar eclipse in 38 years swept across the nation Monday. People stopped what they were doing to view the phenomenon, put on their glasses, and looked up to see the moon moving across the path of the sun. Look at this great picture that was shared on Twitter. Especially the details on the bottom.

Have a good rest of your Tuesday Cowboy fans.
