  • OXNARD, Calif. (AP)— Barry Church is finished with Jolly Ranchers. The candy-loving Dallas Cowboys safety missed a day of training camp because of a cherry-flavored one.

    Church chipped a tooth on a piece of the hard candy about a week before reporting to camp. He felt pain off and on, but says it was unbearable when he woke up Monday morning.

    The fourth-year pro missed a walkthrough and a full practice to get a root canal, but returned Tuesday.

    Church says he “caught a couple of zingers” from coaches and teammates and isn’t happy that he has to stay away from candy for a while.

    Once he can eat candy again, Church says he’ll “stick to the soft stuff.”

    Church missed the final 13 games last year with a torn Achilles’ tendon.
