Dallas designated Lawrence (foot) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Although Lawrence has been officially cleared to practice, he won't be ready to play in Thursday's game against the Raiders. However, the Cowboys are hopeful that the star defensive end will be able to return to game action in the near future, perhaps as soon as the team's Week 13 game against the Saints on Dec. 2. Before breaking his foot and requiring surgery, Lawrence appeared in one game and recorded five tackles and a forced fumble.
Lawrence (foot) didn't practice Tuesday, though Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said the defensive end could soon be designated for return from injured reserve, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Since Lawrence has yet to resume practicing since undergoing surgery Sept. 16 to address a fractured foot, he's safe to rule out for the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Raiders. On a more positive note, McCarthy's comments suggested Lawrence might be ready to resume practicing at some point next week. Whenever Lawrence is designated for return from IR, the Cowboys will have 21 days to evaluate him for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that it will "probably be a couple weeks" before Lawrence (foot) is able to return, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. McCarthy added that Lawrence is at least "making progress." Since undergoing foot surgery after the Cowboys' season opener, Lawrence has missed seven straight games.
Lawrence (foot) won't play Sunday against the Falcons, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Lawrence has missed the last seven games after he underwent foot surgery, but he progressed to on-field rehab work last week. Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that the defensive end isn't expected to return to practice this week, and he'll be held out against Atlanta as a result.
The Cowboys placed Lawrence (foot) on injured reserve Thursday, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports. After Lawrence underwent surgery on a fractured fifth metatarsal in his foot Thursday, the Cowboys made the procedural move to free up a spot on the 53-man roster. The pass rusher is expected to be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks, meaning he likely won't be available until November, at the earliest. In Lawrence's place, Tarell Basham and Dorance Armstrong are the likely candidates to get run opposite Randy Gregory, who currently is on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
