Covington spent 2018 with the Texans, recording 15 tackles (eight solo) and 3.5 sacks in just 12 games. The 25-year-old can play both interior and edge on the defensive line, and is in line to provide pass-rushing depth for the Cowboys in 2019.
Covington had four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Monday's 34-17 win over the Titans.
Covington had his best game of the season by far and constantly beat his man in one-on-one matchups. He'll get a lot of those matchups while offenses scheme to stop J.J. Watt or Jadeveon Clowney, so it's surprising to learn these were his first sacks of the season.
Covington (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Covington has been playing in a limited role through two games -- he missed Week 2 against the Titans due to a thigh injury -- and made two tackles. Expect Angelo Blackson to log a hefty workload in Covington's place.
Covington (thigh) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Covington was held of out Week 2's game against the Titans but appears fully recovered from his thigh injury. As long as Convington is able to continue practicing throughout the week, he stands to suit up and start against the Giants on Sunday.
Covington (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.
Covington was limited in practice throughout the week after injuring his thigh last week against New England. With Covington out, look for Angelo Blackson to draw the spot start against a Titans offensive line that is missing their top three tackles.
