    By RotoWire Staff

    Vander Esch (pelvis) played 11 snaps and recorded one tackle in Saturday's preseason opener against the 49ers.

  • Vander Esch (pelvis) participated in pre-practice team drills during Wednesday's OTA session, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Vander Esch didn't participate in the Cowboys' actual practice, but his level of involvement Wednesday is a great sign. While the extent of his injury still isn't fully clear, Vander Esch will have a few more opportunities to get some actual team reps in before training camp during Thursday's OTA finale and next week's mandatory minicamp.

  • Vander Esch won't participate in OTAs due to a pelvic injury, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Vander Esch is looking to build on a strong rookie campaign in which he recorded a team-leading 140 tackles and two interceptions en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. The start to his follow-up act will be delayed by the injury, but it's not believed to be a major setback. Vander Esch will enter the upcoming season as one of the most valuable fantasy options in leagues with IDPs.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Vander Esch (shin) isn't listed on the Tuesday injury report for Saturday's playoff game against the Seahawks. There was some chatter about Vander Esch suffering an injury during a meaningless Week 17 contest, but fortunately for coach Jason Garrett, the rookie linebacker will be fine for the playoffs. Vander Esch finished the regular season third in the NFL with 140 tackles, quickly establishing himself as one of the better linebackers in the league.
