Woods recorded 72 tackles (48 solo) with one pass defended in 15 games during 2020. He missed a game late in the season with a rib injury, but otherwise Woods held down a starting spot in a terrible Dallas defense. The fourth-year safety topped 70 tackles for the second straight season, but he got exposed in coverage and failed to record an interception after grabbing at least one in each of his first three seasons. Woods now is headed into free agency, and new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn likely will be more interested in finding an upgrade than in bringing him back.
Woods (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. After being contained to limited participation during all three of the Cowboys' practice sessions this week, Woods has seemingly shown enough during pregame warmups to get the nod for his 15th appearance of the season. Having started all 14 times he's suited up so far, Woods enters the regular-season finale with 69 tackles. The 25-year-old has yet to collect his first interception of the year, after combining for five INTs between 2017 and 2019.
Woods (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. The 25-year-old was limited at practice this week with the rib injury, so he appears to have a solid chance of suiting up Sunday. Reggie Robinson is next in line to start at free safety if Woods is unavailable.
Woods (ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. Woods was sidelined in last week's game against the Eagles. His participation, albeit limited, at practice indicates he is trending in the right direction. However, Reggie Robinson would be in line to once again replace him at free safety should he end up having to sit out again.
Woods (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports. After overcoming a groin issue to avoid his first 2020 game absence in Week 15, Woods has sustained an injury of another variety as Dallas finds itself protecting a narrow second-half lead. The Louisiana Tech standout has started 43 games since the beginning of 2018, but now fourth-round rookie Reggie Robinson may be relied on to hold down the free safety spot.
