Dallas Cowboys rookie receiver L’Damian Washington injured his shoulder during Thursday’s practice.

The Cowboys fear Washington separated his AC joint, according to a source.

Washington wouldn’t say much about the injury when reached on his cellphone, revealing only that he was still waiting on MRI results. He is wearing a sling.

“It’s a tough one,” he said.

The injury could keep the undrafted free agent out of the rest of the team’s off-season program, with the goal of getting him fully healthy for training camp. The Missouri product was signed to compete with fifth-round draft pick Devin Street for a spot on the 53-player roster.

The Cowboys return four veteran receivers, with Miles Austin having been released.

It was a rough first week of organized team activities for the Cowboys as they lost linebacker Sean Lee to a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. The fifth-year veteran is expected to miss the season.
