Mincey announced that he is retiring from football, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports. The 32-year-old racked up 216 combined tackles and 26 sacks across 96 career games.
Mincey underwent surgery on his right elbow this week, the Dallas Morning News reports. He has arthroscopic surgery on the same elbow last offseason, but it continues to bother him in 2015. Mincey failed to record a sack in 14 games last season, and may not draw much attention as a free agent as a result.
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, the Cowboys' official website reports. Mincey's return from a one-week absence should help a Dallas defense that struggled badly against the Falcons last week, but a Sunday night game at the Superdome may still prove rather difficult. With just 40 tackles and six sacks in 18 games since the beginning of last season, Mincey does not warrant IDP consideration.
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) is probable for the Week 4 clash in New Orleans. Mincey will seemingly miss just one game, and he figures to jump right back in as a starter. The Cowboys struggled in his absence last week, getting steamrolled by the Atlanta offense.
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, DallasCowboys.com reports. The beat-up Cowboys could use him back after their defense collapsed in the second half of last week's loss to the Falcons. Mincey should return to his starting right defensive end spot barring a setback, but he'll only hold the job for one more week, as Greg Hardy will be serving the final game of his suspension.
