Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden is working on learning the team's offense and getting better, and is not concerned with the situation surrounding QB Kyle Orton. "I'm going to go about my business the same way regardless. I haven't met Kyle, so I can't really speak on it, but whatever he decides to do it's kind of out of my control," Weeden said. "So what I'm worried about is, if I'm running with the twos out there, do my job to make the twos better. I want to make the team better any way I can, so it doesn't change my mindset or the way I feel about it."

Cowboys | Unsure on Kyle Orton

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 15:16:03 -0700

Updating a previous item, the Dallas Cowboys have been optimistic that QB Kyle Orton would show up for mandatory minicamp this week, but after he didn't show Monday, June 16, the team is unsure if he'll be around Tuesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Orton isn't a huge blow to the Cowboys if he doesn't wind up showing up this week, since they have Brandon Weeden as a capable backup. Orton, obviously, shouldn't be drafted.
