  • Cowboys' Stephon Gilmore: Has shoulder surgery

    Gilmore (shoulder) had surgery after the Cowboys' season ended, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. The 12th-year veteran is set to become a free agent, and he will likely need 4-to-6 months to recover, per Archer. At the same time, Gilmore should be available for training camp.

  • Cowboys' Stephon Gilmore: Career-best tackle total in 2023

    Gilmore recorded a career-high 68 tackles (54 solo) while adding two interceptions on 13 passes defended plus a forced fumble over 17 regular-season games in 2023. The 33-year-old cornerback showed he still has plenty left in the tank while not missing a game for the first time since 2019. Gilmore is a free agent this offseason and isn't guaranteed to be back in Dallas, as the Cowboys have younger options in DaRon Bland and Trevon Diggs (knee) to handle the starting jobs on the outside, but the veteran's savvy and coverage skills should still give him plenty of suitors.

  • Cowboys' Stephon Gilmore: Still on track for Sunday

    Gilmore (shoulder) is unlikely to practice until Saturday, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, but he's still expected to play Sunday against the Packers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Gilmore avoided any significant damage to his shoulder when he suffered the injury Week 18 against the Commanders.

However, this is the first confirmation from McCarthy that will likely be the case, which is good news for the Cowboys' secondary.

  • Cowboys' Stephon Gilmore: Picks off another pass Monday

    Gilmore recorded three tackles (three solo) and one interception in the Cowboys' Week 6 win over the Chargers Monday night. Gilmore's late fourth-quarter interception essentially sealed the win for Dallas and was his second in six games to open the season.

  • Cowboys' Stephon Gilmore: Secures pick in Dallas debut

    Gilmore recorded four tackles and three passes defended, including an interception, in Sunday's 40-0 rout of the Giants. The Cowboys' defense dominated the game, and Gilmore made an impact in his debut for the club by plucking an errant Daniel Jones throw early in the second quarter. The veteran cornerback hasn't pulled down more than two INTs in a season since 2019, but with an aggressive, star-studded Dallas defense giving QBs little time and few opportunities to make optimal choices, Gilmore could see a lot more chances to create turnovers than he's been used to.

  • Colts' Stephon Gilmore: Sees full action Thursday

  • Colts' Stephon Gilmore: Gets two-year deal from Colts

    Gilmore is signing a two-year contract with the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal reportedly has a base value of $23 million, including $14 million guaranteed. Gilmore is 31 years old and missed 14 games over the past two seasons, but he's also just three years removed from a Defensive Player of the Year award (2019, with New England). The Patriots traded him to Carolina last fall while he was recovering from quad surgery, and he played eight games for the Panthers (three starts, two INTs) before missing the final two weeks with a groin injury and COVID-19. The Colts saw enough in the limited action to believe Gilmore can still be a high-quality starter, joining Kenny Moore to give the team a second playmaker at cornerback.
