Awuzie wasn't seen practicing Wednesday due to a suspected hamstring injury, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. It appears Awuzie recently picked up the injury, but the severity of the hamstring issue isn't clear. Regardless, there's no reason for Dallas to be taking any chances with one its starting corners this early in the offseason. It's possible Awuzie could be back on the practice field within a few days.
Awuzie finished the regular season with 71 tackles, one interception on 11 passes defended, and one forced fumble in 15 games. He missed one contest with an ankle injury, but otherwise Awuzie took a huge step forward in his second NFL campaign. The 2017 second-round pick really came on in the second half as teams shied away from throwing at Byron Jones, giving the Cowboys two young starting cornerbacks that can make life difficult for opposition receivers with their length and physicality heading into 2019.
Awuzie (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Awuzie was limited in practice all throughout the week due to a lingering ankle injury but will nonetheless suit up against Washington on Sunday. Expect Awuzie to slot into his usual starting role in the Redskins' secondary.
Awuzie (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Awuzie was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, so the 23-year-old seems truly questionable for Week 7. Expect Awuzie to retake his usual starting role if healthy, and Jourdan Lewis would see an increased workload if Awuzie were to miss any time.
Awuzie (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports. Awuzie was limited in practice throughout the entire week due to an ankle issue, bringing his status for Sunday's tilt into question. The 2017 second-rounder played a season-low 36 defensive snaps Week 5 against the Texans, when the ankle issue may have played a part in the Cowboys' coaching staff electing to bench Awuzie for the second half. If he's ultimately sidelined Sunday, Jourdan Lewis, Anthony Brown and C.J. Goodwin would be in line for expanded roles at cornerback across from starter Byron Jones.
