  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Suspension comes to end

    Gifford's two-game suspension was lifted Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Gifford was forced to sit out two weeks for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, however, his official return appears to be on the horizon. The Nebraska product currently has a roster exemption, but it likely won't be long before he is cleared to return to team activities. He's appeared in six contests this season for the Cowboys, garnering just one defensive snap compared to 121 on special teams.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Suspended two games

    Gifford has been suspended for two games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing drugs, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Gifford will be eligible to return to the active roster on December 4 following the team's Week 13 matchup with the Ravens. The linebacker has only taken snaps in six games this season, with all his reps coming on special teams, so his absence won't have a major impact on Dallas' defense.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Inactive for season opener

    Gifford (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Rams.

    Gifford dealt with a hamstring injury earlier this week but was cleared on Friday's injury report, so his absence comes down to a coach's decision. As a depth linebacker, Gifford's lack of availability shouldn't have a noticeable impact on Dallas' defense.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Good to go

    Gifford (hamstring) has been cleared to play in Sunday's season opener against the Rams, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Gifford was limited at practice earlier in the week due to a hamstring issue but logged a full workload Friday with no setbacks. He is expected to provide depth at linebacker heading into the season.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Set for expanded role?

    Gifford (arm) is a candidate to see increased playing time during the 2020 season, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Gifford appeared in six contests as a rookie in 2019, during which he handled a role on special teams. Undergoing surgery to address a fractured left arm cut the Nebraska product's debut campaign short, but he's expected to make a full recovery this offseason. With Sean Lee's future in Dallas uncertain and Leighton Vander Esch recovering from neck surgery, Gifford could realistically carve out a rotational role on defense in 2020 if he's able to get back to full health and take a step forward in his development.
