Signed away from the Raiders last offseason, Mayowa didn't show much early in the year, but emerged as a legitimate pass-rushing threat down the stretch. With Randy Gregory now suspended for the entire 2017 campaign, Dallas will be looking for Mayowa to take on a bigger role next year, and he could challenge the double-digit mark in sacks.
While Mayowa underwent an MRI on Monday, it remains unclear why he needed one. However, his utter absence from the injury report Thursday implies the testing found nothing of concern. Thus, Mayowa doesn't appear in any real danger of missing Monday's matchup with the Lions.
Mayowa (undisclosed) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Mayowa is one of three Dallas players to get an MRI on Monday. It's unclear what exactly Mayowa's injury is at this time but it isn't thought the be serious. If he does wind up missing any time look for Zach Moore to receive some extra snaps.
The Cowboys lured Mayowa away from the Raiders earlier this offseason, but he needed arthroscopic knee surgery in June and landed on the team's PUP list to begin training camp. Now nearing full strength, Mayowa will provide depth along Dallas' defensive line.
Mayowa underwent a knee scope in June with an original timetable for his recovery of six weeks, but he appears to be a bit behind that schedule now. Assuming he comes off the PUP list soon, though, he'll still have plenty of time to potentially win a starting job at DE to begin the season while the Cowboys are without the suspended DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory.
