  • Cowboys' Israel Mukuamu: Hamstring healed

    Mukuamu (hamstring) recorded two tackles (one solo) in Saturday's 28-23 exhibition loss to the Jaguars.

    Mukuamu had been sidelined earlier in camp due to a hamstring issue, but his participation in the Cowboys' preseason opener implies he has recovered. The strong safety saw 23 defensive snaps (28 percent) in the contest. He is attempting to secure a role backing up Jayron Kearse at strong safety this season.

  • Cowboys' Israel Mukuamu: Out indefinitely

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Thursday that Mukuamu (hamstring) is dealing with a multiple-week injury, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    The 2021 sixth-round pick's injury is worse than originally expected after he left Wednesday's practice as a precautionary measure with a sore hamstring. Last year, the South Carolina product appeared in 15 games and made three starts for Dallas, totaling 17 tackles and one pass breakup. Once Mukuamu is healthy, he will compete for the starting strong safety position with veterans Malik Hooker and Jayron Kearse.

  • Cowboys' Israel Mukuamu: Lining up as first-team safety

    Mukuamu was one of two starting safeties during team drills in Dallas' OTAs on June 9, Nick Eastman of the team's official site reports.

    Mukuamu ended the 2021 season on the Cowboys' injured reserve list with a hamstring injury. The 2021 sixth-round pick played four games during his rookie season, but he never recorded a statistic over 19 defensive and 58 special-teams snaps. While Mukuamu filled in with the starting defense during team drills, veterans Jayron Kearse and Malik Hooker eventually lined up as the first-team safeties during walkthrough sessions June 9.

  • Cowboys' Israel Mukuamu: Placed on injured reserve

    Mukuamu (hamstring) was placed on IR on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Mukuamu's move to IR will end the rookie's season unless the Cowboys make it to the Super Bowl and he's healthy enough to return. In a corresponding move, starting strong safety Jayron Kearse was returned to the 53-man roster from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
