James Hanna: Retiring from football
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna was placed on the Cowboys' reserved/retired list Friday due to lingering knee injuries, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Hanna signed a three-year deal with the Cowboys back in 2016, and the tight end went on to miss all of that next season after undergoing knee surgery. The lingering problems from that injury are now cutting Hanna's career short. Hanna appeared in all 16 games for Dallas last season and started in eight, but he caught just four passes for 88 yards. Jason Witten will obviously continue to operate as the team's starting tight end, but there are now serious questions as to who will be backing him up.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Makes little impact in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna finished the regular season with four catches on nine targets for 88 yards and his first career NFL touchdown.

The fifth-year tight end's blocking skill and contributions on special teams have kept him in the No. 2 spot on the Cowboys depth chart, but it's a role that's offered little fantasy upside behind Jason Witten. With Witten set to return in 2018 and young TEs like Rico Gathers pushing for snaps, Hanna isn't likely to see his usage in the passing game increase next season.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Suiting up for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Hanna is listed as the Cowboys No. 2 tight end but has done hardly any damage in the passing game this year. He will help boost Dallas' run game against the Raiders.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Uncertain for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The backup tight end put forth only a pair of limited practices this week while battling the knee issue. If Hanna gains clearance to play in Week 15, he won't see much involvement in the passing game. He's caught just two passes through 13 contests this season.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Gets into end zone Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna caught his only target for a 28-yard touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

It was his first catch of the season, after Hanna failed to even receive a target in the first three games. He's a stout blocker, but his role as a receiver will remain very limited behind Jason Witten.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (groin) returned to practice Monday, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram reports.

Hanna returned to practice Monday following a groin injury that had been bothering him for a few days. Hanna remains stuck behind teammate Jason Witten on the team's depth chart but could find himself enjoying a bigger role this season if he stays healthy.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Not practicing due to groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (groin) did not practice Thursday, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Hanna sat out of the Hall of Fame Game with a knee injury, and now he's day-to-day with a new groin injury. He's currently behind Jason Witten in the depth chart, and getting on the field for Saturday's preseason game would help him solidify that position.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Will be limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) isn't expected to play much Thursday, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' team website reports.

Hanna hasn't played a snap since the 2015 season due to two knee surgeries in that span. However, there shouldn't be much reason to worry since Dallas is resting a lot of its starters for the first preseason game. Don't expect the 28-year-old tight end to take over Jason Witten's spot, but he will be a solid No. 2 for the time being -- not enough for true fantasy relevance, though.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Limited participant in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) is limited at the start of training camp, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Hanna is looking to bounce back from a pair of knee surgeries and could be a regular on the injury report the rest of the summer. Fortunately, there doesn't seem to be any concern over his availability for the start of the regular season.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Not expected to return until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) is not expected to return to team activities until training camp, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Hanna underwent a second surgery in November to repair a knee injury he sustained last summer. The team does not anticipate him participating in any organized team activities until training camp commences. Barring any setbacks, he appears to be on track to be healthy prior to the 2017 season kicking off.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Uncertain timetable for recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna's (knee) timeline for a return is unclear, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Hanna ended the 2016 season on injured reserve after requiring a second surgery in November to repair a knee injury he sustained last summer. He still has roughly two months until offseason workouts begin, but there is no indication he'll be ready to take the field by then. When healthy, Hanna could be in line to compete with Geoff Swaim (pectoral) for the No. 2 tight end role in 2017 with Gavin Escober set to hit free agency.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Scheduled for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) is set to undergo a second knee surgery Tuesday, ESPN reports.

Hanna opened training camp on the PUP list after needing knee surgery in August and will now require his second procedure in less than three months. He will miss the remainder of the season, leaving only Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar as healthy options on the Cowboys' roster.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Will begin season on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) was placed on the Cowboys' reserve/PUP list Tuesday, ESPN reports.

Hanna underwent knee surgery in mid-August, but the injury he suffered is reportedly minor in nature when compared to other more prevalent knee injuries. He'll be confined to the sidelines until Week 7, but he has a legitimate chance at regaining the Cowboys' No. 2 tight end job before year's end.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Opts for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) has decided to have knee surgery and may not be ready for the start of the regular season, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Hanna was expected to be the unquestioned No. 2 tight end for the Cowboys, behind Jason Witten, but now that he's facing the very real possibility of remaining on the PUP list at the start of the season, therefore missing at least six games, Gavin Escobar and Geoff Swaim could make the team to start the year. The positive for Hanna is that his knee injury is relatively minor, as far as knee injuries can go, and it still remains unlikely that he'll miss a majority of the season.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Seeking third opinion on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) will likely require a scope, although he intends to seek out a third opinion in Dallas before making a final decision, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Fellow tight end Geoff Swaim is likely in place for unexpected reps if Hanna is unable to return by Week 1. The blocking tight end first noticed an issue on July 29 and was placed on the Cowboys' PUP list that same day.

Cowboys' James Hanna: Lands on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna (knee) has been placed on the Cowboys' PUP list to begin training camp, ESPN reports.

Hanna is currently dealing with a knee injury, and although the ailment is not thought to be serious, he'll still be sidelined to start camp. Fresh off signing a new three-year deal in March, Hanna should once again prove depth and steady blocking in the Cowboys' tight end group.

James Hanna: Back with Cowboys on three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hanna signed a three-year, $8.25 million deal with the Cowboys on Friday, Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram reports.

Hanna has been a reliable blocking presence for Dallas over the last four years, but carries little to no fantasy value. The 26-year-old registered just nine catches for 79 yards last season.

Cowboys tight end James Hanna undergoes minor knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys tight end James Hanna had a scope performed on his knee Saturday, DallasCowboys.com reports. 

It was just a minor clean-up procedure and Hanna could return to practice by the end of the week, but it still seems unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 3's game against the Falcons. Geoff Swaim would once again by the Cowboys' third tight end Sunday if Hanna is eventually ruled out.

Cowboys TE James Hanna is ruled out for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys tight end James Hanna (left knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Hanna was listed as questionable heading into the Week 2 matchup, but didn't progress enough to the point where the Cowboys felt he would be able to suit up Sunday. With Hanna slated for an inactive designation, Geoff Swaim is expected to make his NFL debut as the Cowboys' third tight end behind Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar.

Cowboys TE James Hanna (knee) out for two weeks
by Elliot Smith | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end James Hanna suffered a sprained knee during the team's loss to the Chargers on Thursday and could wind up being sidelined for up to two weeks, per the Dallas Morning News

Hanna, who is the team's reserve tight end, may wind up missing the rest of training camp, which could give rookie Geoff Swaim the chance to make an impression on coaches. 

In three seasons with the Cowboys, Hanna has 22 catches for 207 yards.
