  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Questionable for Sunday

    Kearse (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Jori Epstein of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Kearse suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee during the season opener and has remained sidelined since. However, he's listed as questionable for the first time since the injury, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. Last year, he totaled 101 tackles and two interceptions, so his potential return would be a huge boost to Dallas' secondary.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Kearse (knee) was listed as a limited participant during Dallas' walkthrough practice Wednesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

    Kearse has been sidelined since suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee during Week 1, so his ability to participate in Wednesday's limited practice is an encouraging sign for his potential return in Week 4. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy did not give any definitive statement on the safety's game day availability, though he did say that the team would "give [Kearse] the full complement" during practice Thursday. Kearse recorded 101 tackles, 10 passes defended and two interceptions last season, and he should reprise this productive role when healthy.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Won't play Monday

    Kearse (knee) is listed as out for Week 3 at the Giants, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse sustained a sprained MCL in Week 1 versus Tampa Bay, and he'll now need to sit out a second consecutive week as he recovers. He'll probably need to practice in some capacity next week if there's to be any hope of him suiting up for Week 4 versus Washington, but in the meantime, Malik Hooker will continue to start alongside Donovan Wilson in Kearse's absence.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Sits out practice Thursday

    Kearse (knee) did not participate during the Cowboys' practice Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse is still working his way back from a sprained MCL in his left knee suffered in Week 1. The starting strong safety should have two more practices to fully suit up before Monday's game against the Giants, though it's likely he will continue to sit out given his initial 2-to-4-week recovery timetable. In his stead, free safety Malik Hooker played 100 percent of Dallas' defensive snaps alongside Donovan Wilson in Week 2, and the two will likely play similar roles once again in Week 3.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Out Week 2

    Kearse (knee) will be sidelined for the Cowboys' Week 2 matchup with the Bengals, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Kearse is still recovering from an MCL sprain in his left knee that occurred in the team's Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers. He was originally given a 2-to-4 week recovery timetable, so it's no surprise he has been ruled out this week. Israel Mukuamu is the prime candidate to replace him at strong safety.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Making strides at practice

    Kearse (knee) has shown positive signs early in the week, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, but the Cowboys "feel better" about his status as the week progresses. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that the safety has "made some strides", potentially meaning that he could be back sooner rather than later. Kearse is not going to be available for Week 2 versus the Bengals, though he could return on the closer end of his 2-to-4-week recovery timetable.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Has MCL sprain

    Kearse sprained his MCL in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

    A recovery timetable has yet to be established for Kearse, but Archer points out that MCL sprains generally take 2-4 weeks to recover from. Given that context and the fact Kearse was seen on crutches after the loss to Tampa Bay, he seems exceedingly unlikely to suit up in Week 2 against the Bengals.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Ruled out for Week 2

    Kearse (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Bengals, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    As expected, Kearse will be sidelined for at least one game after being diagnosed with an MCL sprain. In his absence, expect Israel Mukuamu or Malik Hooker to step into a starting role next to Donovan Wilson.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Seen on crutches after loss

    Kearse (knee) was seen on crutches following Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers and will undergo an MRI on Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse walked to the locker room under his own power after sustaining a knee injury in the third quarter Sunday, but he required crutches to exit the stadium. His MRI on Monday should help provide a better idea of his diagnosis, but Donovan Wilson will likely see increased playing time if Kearse is forced to miss additional time.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Questionable to return

    Kearse is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers due to a left knee injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse sustained a knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup and was able to walk to the locker room under his own power. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return down the stretch, but Donovan Wilson should see increased playing time in the Cowboys' secondary while Kearse is sidelined.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Active Sunday

    Kearse (neck) is active for Sunday's season opener against the Buccaneers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse didn't practice Friday due to a neck injury and was questionable heading into Sunday's matchup, but he'll be available against Tampa Bay. The 2016 seventh-rounder will take on a starting role for the season opener.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Doesn't practice Friday

    Kearse (neck) is questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Buccaneers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse didn't practice Friday due to a neck injury, putting his status for Sunday in question. The severity of the issue is unclear, but if he can't suit up, Israel Mukuamu, Donovan Wilson and Markquese Bell are candidates for increased roles next to Malik Hooker.
