Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: No injury designation for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (neck) will not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions.

After two limited practices earlier in the week, Lawrence was a full participant Friday. He has yet to miss a game this season.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Limited by neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence has a neck injury and was a limited practice participant Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lawrence played a typical 64 percent of defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Vikings but he apparently came away with the neck issue. The fact the 27-year-old still practiced to start the week is a good sign for his potential availability Sunday at Detroit.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Notches sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence recorded four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Monday night's win over the Giants.

Lawrence took down the quarterback for a second-straight game and now has 4.5 sacks on the year. With just 17 tackles on the season, he is well off of his 2018 pace, but perhaps this is a sign he is about to get rolling starting at home Week 10 against the Vikings.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Ferocious in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence collected four tackles, including a sack and a second tackle for a loss, in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

The Dallas pass rush brought Carson Wentz down three times in total in the game but was causing him trouble all night, with Lawrence leading the charge. Tank heads into the Cowboys' bye with a disappointing 3.5 sacks through the first seven games, but he'll have a chance to recharge before trying to hunt down the Giants' Daniel Jones in Week 9.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Will play against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's game versus the Packers, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Lawrence started off the season without a sack in his first two games, but he has notched one in each of the last two games. The 27-year-old will now look to get to Aaron Rodgers, who has been sacked just eight times this year despite taking an average 2.92 seconds to throw, the third-highest rate in the league according to Next Gen Stats.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Heel injury surfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/shoulder) will be limited in Thursday's practice due to a heel injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence appears to be managing multiple injuries, so it's encouraging that he isn't being held out of practice entirely. He was listed with shoulder and knee issues to begin the week. The extent of his participation Friday will be worth monitoring, but it currently looks as though Lawrence might be able to play through his injuries Sunday versus the Packers.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence is a newcomer to Wednesday's injury report with both knee and shoulder issues. It bodes well that he was able to practice in some capacity. Lawrence has notched a sack in each of the last two games, and he'll look to keep that streak alive against the Packers on Sunday assuming his injuries aren't too serious.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Helping Cowboys pass rush
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence picked up a pair of tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Lawrence's second full sack of the season came despite him playing only 55 percent of his team's defensive snaps Sunday, down from 71 percent in Week 3. He will certainly be hoping for a bigger role next week when the Cowboys host Aaron Rodgers and the pass-happy Packers.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Nabs first sack of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence recorded two tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

It was his first full sack of the season, although Lawrence did register a half-sack against the Giants in Week 1. With Robert Quinn now part of the mix on the opposite edge, Lawrence and the Cowboys' pass rush should begin to pick up some steam.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Jars ball loose in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence recorded two tackles (one solo), a half-sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Lawrence caught Eli Manning outside the pocket late in the second quarter, combining with Leighton Vander Esch to jar the ball loose and recover the fumble. The 27-year-old has racked up double-digit sack totals in each of the last two seasons, and he appears on track to repeat his efforts. Lawrence will get a solid matchup against the Redskins in Week 2, although they allowed just one sack Sunday to the Eagles.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Shoulder nearly 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence has full range of motion in his shoulder for the first time in two years, and the joint is almost back at full strength, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Considering he still made the Pro Bowl in those two years despite playing through the pain of a torn labrum, this is disconcerting news for the quarterbacks the Cowboys will face in 2019, starting with the Giants' Eli Manning on Sunday. Lawrence has averaged 59 tackles and 11 sacks in the three seasons during which he's played a full 16-game schedule, putting him firmly on the fantasy radar as an IDP asset already. However, with full use of both arms, the 27-year-old could be headed for a career year.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Regains his health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

In the wake of signing an extension with the Cowboys in early April, Lawrence underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum, spending the offseason and training camp in recovery mode. Since he was removed from the PUP list Aug. 20, he progressed to team drills within a week and put in a full showing in the first practice of Week 1. There may be some limitations on his snap count to kick off the campaign, but Lawrence remains a force as a pass rusher, boasting 25 sacks over the past two seasons.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Progresses to team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) fit in some team drills at Monday's practice, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lawrence delayed surgery to repair a torn labrum until his representatives attained a lucrative, long-term commitment from the Cowboys. Once he underwent the procedure in early April, he was given a 4-to-6-month recovery timetable, making him a candidate to sit out regular-season games if his rehab went long. Instead, he seems to be on schedule for Week 1 or shortly thereafter in the wake of his first 11-on-11 work of August. Once he's cleared for game action, Lawrence will serve as the team's primary pass-rush threat.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Optimistic for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence hasn't yet regained full strength in his surgically repaired shoulder, but he remains optimistic he'll be ready for Week 1, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Considering he's been playing through a torn labrum for the better part of two years, it does seem unlikely he'll be held back for the start of the regular season now that he's healthy. If Lawrence does suit up for Week 1, he'll be a very enticing IDP option -- he's sacked Eli Manning 3.5 times over his last three games against the Giants.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday and participated in individual drills at practice, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence started off training camp on the PUP list because he underwent surgery in April to address a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The 27-year-old may not see enough practice time to be cleared to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, but he'll have a couple weeks to get ready for the start of the regular season.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Unable to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Even though Lawrence is starting camp on the PUP, team officials said Tuesday that they were optimistic the defensive end will be ready for Week 1. The 27-year-old underwent surgery for a torn left labrum in early April, days after signing a five-year, $105 million deal that made him the highest-paid player in team history. Lawrence was given a four-to-six month timetable for return following surgery and appears on schedule in his recovery. Expect the team to keep updating Lawrence's status as the season draws closer.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Likely headed for PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) will likely open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Lawrence said in April that the shoulder surgery he underwent that month was said to have a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 months. The defensive end has also stated confidence in returning before Week 1, which would obviously require getting back by the earliest part of that timeline. However, it doesn't seem he'll be getting much practice during training camp regardless, though Lawrence could theoretically stay in shape since he's not dealing with a lower-body injury.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Facing timeline of 4-to-6 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence said his left shoulder surgery Wednesday comes with a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 months, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Lawrence expects to be ready for Week 1, though the timeline he provided Tuesday suggests it's far from a sure thing. He waited until April to have the procedure, essentially using his shoulder issues as leverage for a long-term deal to replace the franchise tag. Lawrence has been bothered by the shoulder on and off since 2016, but it didn't stop him from piling up 25 sacks while playing all 32 games the past two seasons. His five-year, $105 million contract includes $48 million fully guaranteed, placing him fourth in the NFL among non-quarterbacks, per overthecap.com. The 27-year-old defensive end will be placed on the PUP list to start training camp and isn't likely to play in any preseason games.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: May hit PUP list to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

In the wake of receiving the most guaranteed money for a non-quarterback in his new contract, Lawrence is slated for shoulder surgery Wednesday to correct issues that have plagued him multiple times in his five-year career. While the PUP list likely will be his home in late July and into August, the Cowboys believe he'll be ready for Week 1. Once he gets the all-clear, Lawrence will lead a pass rush that now includes offseason trade acquisition Robert Quinn.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Going under knife Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) will have surgery Wednesday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lawrence and the Cowboys reached an agreement on a five-year extension Friday, so both parties undoubtedly want the Boise State product at 100 percent heading into training camp. Lawrence held off on surgery at first, using it as a bargaining chip during negotiations leading up to the extension. The 27-year-old logged 64 total tackles (42 solo, 22 assisted) and 10.5 sacks over 16 games in 2018.
