Charlton (shoulder/ankle) hasn't practiced this week and won't be participating in OTAs, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports. Head coach Jason Garrett listed Charlton among a group of players who wouldn't be rushed back into action as they recover from various medical issues. Heading into his third NFL season, the 2017 first-round pick has only four sacks in 27 career games, and he's expected to fill a depth pass rush role behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn.
Charlton (shoulder) underwent an ankle scope and isn't expected to be ready for OTAs or minicamp, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports. Charlton also underwent shoulder surgery to repair his labrum in January, so it's been a busy offseason for the defensive end medically speaking. The ankle procedure isn't expected to impact the 24-year-old's status for training camp as the 2017 first-round pick enters a pivotal third year in Dallas.
Charlton had surgery on his shoulder Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Charlton's injury was related to his labrum and sidelined him for three games in November. His stats took a downturn the second half of the season, which could have been a result of playing through injury. The 2017 first-round pick isn't expected to miss much offseason work while he recovers.
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.
