Charlton finished the regular season with 27 tackles, including only one sack, in 11 games. While the second-year defensive end got a chance to start to begin the season, he quickly slipped into a rotational role, and Charlton's second half was sunk by a Week 9 shoulder injury that limited him to only four total snaps over the next six games. Heading into his third NFL campaign, the 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft has yet to establish himself, but improved health could allow him to make some kind of impact in the Cowboys' pass rush behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory.
Charlton (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Charlton missed three weeks before returning for Week 13 and played just four snaps. Now, he'll sit this one out, too.
Charlton (shoulder) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports. Charlton has missed three straight games due to a lingering shoulder issue and finally appears to be nearing a full recovery. The 2017 first-round pick's return would be a notable boost to Dallas' defensive front, especially with Maliek Collins (knee) nursing an injury. If he's able to suit up Week 13, Charlton will work to contain a formidable Saints offense during Thursday Night Football.
Charlton (shoulder) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Redskins, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Charlton was limited in practice throughout the week, and he was unable to get healthy enough to suit up Thanksgiving Day. The 2017 first-round pick will miss his third consecutive game, allowing Randy Gregory to slot into the starting lineup.
Charlton (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Charlton has yet to return to practice since suffering a shoulder injury during a Week 9 game against the Titans. As long as the 2017 first-round pick remains sidelined, Randy Gregory should benefit from an uptick in defensive snaps.
