Lance Lenoir makes an outstanding 50-yard touchdown catch
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lance Lenoir blows past cornerback Donovan Olumba for a 50-yard score in the corner of the end zone during practice.
Fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster, Lance Lenoir continues to impress during the preseason, especially when he catches a 50-yard bomb in the end zone in practice.
Last season, Lenoir failed to make the roster for the regular season. However, if Lenoir keeps on connecting with starting quarterback Dak Prescott like this, Lenoir could find himself battling for playing time rather than just a spot on the team.
Lenoir’s receiving has never been the problem. In three of his four years at Western Illinois, Lenoir racked up over 1,000 receiving yards. In total, he accumulated 3,796 career yards. And every year in college, Lenoir caught seven touchdowns each, totaling for 28 career scores.
Where Lenoir has struggled at the professional level is on special teams.
One of the main reasons Lenoir didn’t make the Cowboys’ roster last year was his muffed punts. Fast forward to this season and the same struggles are still there.
In a 27-3 loss against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night, Lenoir fumbled two punts, with one going for a score.
Although the Cowboys won’t likely use Lenoir for punt returns when the games actually count, he still needs to show what he’s capable of when given any opportunity to hit the field.
If Lenoir can push past his special team demons, the practice film shows just how lethal of a player he can become.
