    Cowboys' Byron Jones: Likely headed to PUP list

    The Dallas Cowboys are likely to place Byron Jones (hip) on the Physically Unable to Perform list when training camp opens, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.Jones underwent offseason hip surgery in late March but was initially expected to be ready for training camp. The defensive back apparently hasn't progressed as well as the Cowboys had hoped, as he has yet to resume full running during his recent workouts. The 26-year-old is coming off a solid 2018 campaign, during which he racked up 67 tackles (56 solo) and 14 pass breakups in 16 games.

    Cowboys' Byron Jones: Progressing nicely

    Byron Jones has been progressing well from offseason hip surgery and is expected to be ready for training camp, Patrik Walker of 247Sports.com reports.Jones underwent surgery March 29, with reports at that time suggesting his availability for the start of camp could be in some peril. The 2015 first-round pick has quelled some of those concerns with the strides he's made in the first two months of his recovery, though he'll still have a few more hurdles to clear before camp begins later in the summer.

    Cowboys' Byron Jones: Gets surgery on hip

    Byron Jones had hip surgery Wednesday but still hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN.com's Todd Archer reports.Jones played through a hip injury late in the 2018 season and was hoping it would resolve itself with rest. He presumably won't be available for the Dallas Cowboys' offseason program, but the rehab process isn't expected to impact his Week 1 availability. The 26-year-old cornerback could receive an extension this offseason, as he's scheduled to play out 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. The Cowboys reportedly have talked with Jones' agent, but they're currently focused on working out deals for DE DeMarcus Lawrence, QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper.

    Cowboys' Byron Jones: Breakout in 2018

    Byron Jones finished the regular season with 67 tackles and a career-high 14 passes defended.Secondary coach Kris Richard has a track record of developing long, physical corners, and Jones became his latest success story after spending the first three seasons of his career bouncing between cornerback and safety. The 26-year-old graded out as one of the best CBs in the league according to Pro Football Focus, and he was the very definition of a shutdown corner by not allowing a single touchdown reception in coverage all year. While he doesn't put up great IDP numbers, Jones should combine with Chidobe Awuzie to give Dallas an impressive pair of athletic and impressive young secondary pieces heading into 2019.

    Cowboys' Byron Jones: Could shift back to corner in 2018

    Byron Jones, who has predominantly played safety the last two seasons, could be moved to cornerback in 2018, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.New secondary coach Kris Richard has a track record for preferring corners with size, and the six-foot, 205-pound Jones would seemingly fit the bill. Jones has also been inconsistent in his time at safety, and by the end of last season, he was splitting snaps with Kavon Frazier at the position. A shift back to cornerback -- the position Jones spent the most time at during his rookie campaign -- wouldn't do his IDP value any favors, but it could strengthen the Dallas Cowboys' overall team defense.
