Steelers signed WR Danny Coale to a reserve/future contract.

A 2012 fifth-round pick of the Cowboys, Coale's Big D career never got off the ground because of foot and ACL injuries. A well-built slot prospect at 6-foot-0, 201 pounds, Coale will have a shot at a roster spot if he's finally healthy.
Jan 28 - 4:25 PM

Free agent WR Danny Coale worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.

On their bye week, the Giants hosted a 20-man free-agent workout. Coale, RB Keiland Williams, and WR Preston Parker were the most notable names. QB B.J. Coleman was also in attendance, but he was likely there to make the throws. The Giants were just doing due diligence and updating the emergency list.

Cowboys released WR Danny Coale from the practice squad.

Coale's fall in Dallas is complete. It's unusual for a fifth-round skill player to be completely cut loose after only one season, but Coale has been unable to stay healthy. His next NFL catch will be his first.
Tue, Sep 17, 2013 03:02:00 PM

Cowboys waived or released WR Danny Coale, OT Edawn Coughman, OT Demetress Bell, DB Xavier Brewer, DE Jerome Long, DE Jabari Fletcher, LB Caleb McSurdy, LB Cameron Lawrence, G/T Ray Dominguez, DE Jason Vega, CB Micah Pellerin, LB Brandon Magee and C Kevin Kowalski.

It's the second straight year the 2012 fifth-rounder Coale couldn't survive final cuts. A practice squader last season, he tore his ACL in November. Bell made it a little more than a month in Big D. McSurdy missed all of 2012 with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Cowboys WR Danny Coale is already dealing with swelling in his surgically repaired knee.

Coale underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee on December 11. The Cowboys can't reasonably expect a contribution this season and may be forced to move on at final cuts.

Cowboys WR Danny Coale (ACL) is targeting training camp for a full return to practice.

Coale blew out his knee last November. During OTAs and minicamp, he mostly went through his rehab routine on the side. He needs to be on the field come August to earn a roster spot as insurance in the slot.

Cowboys WR Danny Coale (knee) is practicing at OTAs Tuesday.

Coale tore his ACL in November, and it's unlikely that he's going through practice full-speed. It's still good news for the 2012 fifth-round pick because just 11 days ago he had yet to be medically cleared. After spending last season on the practice squad, Coale faces an uphill battle for a roster spot.

Cowboys WR Danny Coale is still not medically cleared after tearing his left ACL on the team's practice squad last November.

Coale underwent surgery on December 11 and isn't a realistic candidate for a 2013 roster spot. Injury prone at Virginia Tech as well, Coale also broke his left foot at the Cowboys' first OTA as a rookie. A slot receiver prospect, Coale is targeting the first day of training camp for full medical clearance.

Cowboys practice squad WR Danny Coale suffered a torn left ACL in his knee on Thursday.

Coale was a fifth-round pick out of Virginia Tech in April and was among Dallas' final cuts. He has spent the entire season on the practice squad. The first-year wideout dealt with a stress fracture in his foot and a hamstring strain in training camp. Coale will hope to be back in time for the start of offseason workouts.

Cowboys signed WR Danny Coale to the practice squad.

The Cowboys are likely breathing a sigh of relief their fifth-round pick made it through waivers. Provided he stays healthy and makes up for his lost preseason development, Coale should be the first man up if Dallas decides it's seen enough of Kevin Ogletree, Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley or Andre Holmes.

Cowboys waived WR Danny Coale.

By the time the fifth-rounder overcame foot and quad injuries, he had fallen too far behind Kevin Ogletree, Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley and Andre Holmes. The undrafted Beasley has been a more promising slot prospect this summer. Coale hadn't shown much speed or quickness coming off injury, according to beat writer Todd Archer.
Thu, Aug 30, 2012 04:31:00 PM

ESPN Dallas expects fifth-round rookie Danny Coale to beat out Andre Holmes for the Cowboys' final receiver spot.

Injuries jeopardized Coale's roster spot after he appeared to be a lock in the spring, but he made his exhibition debut on Saturday against the Rams. Holmes, meanwhile, reportedly showed up to camp out of shape, and is now dealing with a back injury. Holmes' size (6-foot-5, 208 pounds) may be his only advantage over Coale's slot and special teams prowess.

The Cowboys' official website believes fifth-round WR Danny Coale's roster spot is "certainly not secure."

Coach Jason Garrett admitted as much last Thursday. Coale's slot prowess and the Cowboys' lack of a certified No. 3 receiver made him a popular sleeper pick following the draft, but it's hard to see Coale making an impact even if he does manage to nail down a roster spot. Coale needs to show something in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.
Mon, Aug 20, 2012 01:29:00 PM

Coach Jason Garrett acknowledged that fifth-round WR Danny Coale's (foot, quad) chances of making the roster are "certainly hampered" if he misses a second preseason game.

Garrett "feels good" about Coale, but concedes that the rookie is "way behind" at this point. With Andre Holmes, Cole Beasley, Tim Benford and Dwayne Harris all pushing Kevin Ogletree for the No. 3 receiver job, Coale's roster odds are becoming increasingly longer.
