Looney announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.
Looney signed a deal with the Giants over the weekend, but he opted to retire after going through a couple days of practice. The 30-year-old appeared in 104 games (42 starts) over his nine-year career with the Cowboys, 49ers and Titans.
Looney agreed to sign with the Giants on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Looney will be reuniting with Jason Garrett, who was his head coach during the majority of his tenure with Dallas. It was reported that Looney was close to signing with the Giants last year before he ultimately decided to stay with the Cowboys. The 2012 fourth-round pick is likely to compete with Brett Heggie for the backup role behind Nick Gates.
The Cowboys activated Looney (knee) from injured reserve Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Looney returned to practice Wednesday and will return to action after spending the minimum three-game stint on IR. He should start at center Sunday against the Eagles, although it's still unsettled whether he'll immediately return to his starting role or if Tyler Biadasz will retain the gig for one more week.
Looney (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
The 30-year-old is returning to practice this week and could be activated for Sunday's game at Philadelphia since he's already spent the three-game minimum on injured reserve. However, Looney may need a bit more practice time before reaching game readiness, so a return in Week 9 seems like a safer bet.
The Cowboys placed Looney (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Looney was handed a 2-to-3 week recovery timeline following news that he suffered a sprained MCL in Week 4, and now he'll officially be shut down until Week 8. Expect Tyler Biadasz to start at center until Looney can return.
Looney suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's loss to the Browns and is expected to miss two to three weeks, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Looney will sit out Week 5 against the Giants but could realistically return Week 6 against the Cardinals if his rehab goes welll. For the time being, Tyler Biadasz is expected to start at center.
Looney (knee) isn't expected to face a long-term absence after suffering a right knee sprain Sunday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The 30-year-old could be sidelined for Week 5 due to the injury, but he may end up missing only the one contest. Rookie Tyler Biadasz lines up to start at center if/when Looney is ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Giants.
Looney will be re-evaluated Monday after suffering a sprained right knee during Sunday's loss to the Browns, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Monday's tests should reveal whether Looney will be forced to miss any time. Tyler Biadasz took over at center Sunday and would likely start against the Giants in Week 5 if Looney sits out.
Looney went to the locker room after suffering a right leg injury in Sunday's game against the Browns, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Although Looney walked off the field under his own power, the veteran went straight to the locker room. With Looney out, rookie Tyler Biadasz took over as the team's starting center.
Looney (ankle) returned to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Looney left the game in the first quarter, but now that he's back healthy, he'll return to his usual starting role as the team's center.
Looney (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
It's unclear how Looney suffered the injury but he was forced to leave the game late in the first quarter. With Looney sidelined, look for Tyler Biadasz to take over as the team's starting center.
Looney took all the first-team reps at center during Friday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
This isn't a big surprise, as Looney is the most experienced option the Cowboys have to replace Travis Frederick at center. Looney could face a challenge from a younger lineman such as Connor McGovern or Tyler Biadasz at some point, but the starting assignment for Week 1 is his to lose right now.
Looney agreed Wednesday with the Cowboys on a one-year contract, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Looney worked in a reserve role for all but one game in 2019, but he started a full 16-game slate at center in 2018 while Travis Frederick was sidelined. He's a dependable backup, but as long as Frederick is healthy, Looney will remain in a reserve role.
Looney (back) is active for Sunday night's game against the Eagles, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Looney has played just three snaps all season, and they all came in Week 1. He'll step in at center if Travis Frederick needs replacing.
Looney (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Looney was unable to practice this week but apparently still has a shot to suit up Sunday. If he's able to do so, the 29-year-old will return to a reserve role backing up Travis Frederick.
Looney will take over as the Cowboys' starting center while Travis Frederick (illness) is sidelined.
There's no timetable for Frederick's return as he deals with an auto-immune disorder, so Looney will likely have to shore up the middle of the offensive line for at least the first few games of the season. He's looked at least adequate in the role during the preseason, but with a rookie (Connor Williams) on one side of him and a potentially banged-up Zack Martin (knee) on the other, the Cowboys' interior line is looking a lot less stout than expected heading into Week 1's tilt against the Panthers.
Looney (wrist) has compiled a strong camp, the Cowboys' official site reports.
Looney is slated to serve as the top backup for the Cowboys on the interior and it sounds as though he would be ready to step in when necessary. He has apparently fully recovered from offseason wrist surgery and should be full-go for Week 1.
The Cowboys signed Looney (wrist) to a two-year contract Monday.
Looney served as a depth interior offensive lineman for the Cowboys last season and underwent wrist surgery in January. The 27-year-old could have a similar role for Dallas in 2018, but the departure of starting left guard Jonathan Cooper to the 49ers could result in some shuffling on the Cowboys' offensive line.
Looney underwent surgery on his fractured left wrist this offseason, Mickey Spagnola of the Cowboys' official site reports.
It isn't clear when Looney originally fractured his wrist. While he's expected to fully recover from the injury, it remains to be seen whether his rehabilitation will impact his ability to land a contract this offseason, as Looney will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.
Looney (toe) got reps at left guard during Wednesday's practice, Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website reports.
Looney, who was recently sidelined with a toe injury, has spent the majority of the preseason working as Travis Frederick's backup at center. However, he got some work at left guard Wednesday, so he may see more opportunities to provide depth on the line as the season gets underway.
