IRVING, Texas - Dallas Cowboys veteran safety Darren Woodson suffered a ruptured disc in his back while working out and is scheduled to undergo surgery.
 

Woodson, arguably one of the best at his position, will most likely miss all of training camp and possibly the beginning of the regular season. The former All-Pro is a vital cog in Dallas' secondary.

He is the team's all-time leading tackler with 1,251 career stops and the only member on the current roster to own three Cowboys' Super Bowl rings.

The 35-year-old Woodson posted 79 tackles and one interception in 16 games last season. Woodson, a 13-year pro out of Arizona State, has 23 interceptions and two touchdowns in his career.

Woodson was a second-round draft choice of the Cowboys in 1992.

Tony Dixon is expected to see more playing time if Woodson is unable to return.

thats about the last thing the boys need. the sooner he gets back the better- he is the biggest piece of the cowboys puzzle. hes not the most important but he causes more than anyone else out there.

Yeah, the Cowboys need him in the secondary. Between Woodson and Roy Williams, the Cowboys have two of the hardest hitting safeties in football and other team's receivers are aware of that. I hope it isn't too serious and the surgery goes well.
