The Cowboys' wide receiver depth is one of the team's biggest questions heading into the 2018 season. That depth appears to have already taken a major hit.

Cedrick Wilson, a rookie wide receiver out of Boise State, suffered a shoulder injury at practice earlier this week. The injury is now believed to be serious.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that the injury to Wilson is believed to be a torn labrum.

"Cowboys rookie WR Cedrick Wilson is believed to have torn the labrum in his shoulder in practice, sources say. The sixth rounder is undergoing more tests to determine the next course of action. Would be a blow to depth," he reports.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett had said earlier in the week that they did not expect to have Wilson back for several days. However, if the injury is indeed a torn labrum, he'll surely be out longer than that.

Wilson, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver, was taken in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Cowboys. He was an All-Mountain West player at Boise State in 2017.

The Cowboys open the preseason on Aug. 9. They're set to take on the 49ers at 10 p.m. E.T.
