Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Strong outing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence recorded seven tackles (four solo) including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Washington.

It was Lawrence's best IDP showing of 2020, as he picked up his second sack of the year along with a season high in tackles. With Randy Gregory now reinstated, the Cowboys have plenty of talent off the edge with Lawrence, Gregory, Everson Griffen and Aldon Smith all potential pass-rush threats, which could allow D-Law to avoid the consistent double teams he's had to deal with the last few seasons.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Finally gets first sack of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Giants.

He made his first sack of the season count, as Lawrence jarred the ball loose from Daniel Jones in the second quarter and celebrated as Anthony Brown scooped up the fumble and returned it 29 yards for a touchdown. The Cowboys' defense could use more consistent pressure from Lawrence, especially with the offense potentially headed for a downturn following the loss of Dak Prescott (ankle), but the whole Dallas pass rush will face a tough task in Week 6 against the Cardinals trying to bring down Kyler Murray.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Avoids injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Coach Mike McCarthy said earlier in the day that the team expected Lawrence to play Week 4, and the absence of an injury designation confirms that expectation. Lawrence is without a sack through three games but has eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Lawrence (knee) "has done everything" Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Browns, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 28-year-old sat out the first two practices of the week, but there never appeared to be much doubt about his availability for Week 4. The release of the injury report later in the day will indicate whether Lawrence is fully cleared for Sunday or if he's still officially questionable.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Sits out Thursday, but will play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee) did not participate during Thursday's practice session, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lawrence missed practice Wednesday and Thursday of last week as well before logging a limited session Friday and garnering 41 percent of the defensive snaps against the Seahawks. Coach Mike McCarthy indicated that in spite of Lawrence's lack of practice participation to this point in the week, he is expected to make his 52nd consecutive regular-season appearance Sunday against the Browns, per Michael Gehlken of Dallas Morning News. The coaching staff is seemingly trying to keep Lawrence as healthy as possible for game time after he played through the issue against Seattle.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lawrence played through his knee injury last week against Seattle, so it's not surprising that he's getting a day off to start the week. If Lawrence hasn't suffered a setback, he should ramp up his practice participation as the week progresses ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against Seattle, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

It was reported earlier that Lawrence was expected to suit up in the contest after practicing on a limited basis, and this news confirmed that notion. Now officially in for Sunday's game, he's been seen his snap count managed through the first few weeks of the season, and it's likely the team will operate under that same notion.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Likely to suit up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/personal), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lawrence only practiced once this week -- on a limited basis -- while missing time due to the birth of his child and a lingering right knee injury. The Cowboys are apparently optimistic the knee issue won't prevented Lawrence from suiting up, but his status won't be firmly established until the team releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Lawrence was limited to playing 37 percent of the Cowboys' defensive snaps in the team's Week 2 win over the Falcons, so his workload could be managed carefully again Week 3. That said, Lawrence's ability to suit up in any capacity would be a boon for the Cowboys' pass rush, which will look to slow down red-hot quarterback Russell Wilson.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Status in question for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/personal) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Seattle, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence had quite the week, dealing with a knee injury while also welcoming the birth of his child. He missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but a limited session Friday leaves his status up in the air entering the weekend. If he suits up, it'll be interesting to see whether Lawrence bounces back from playing just 37 percent of the defensive snaps this past Sunday against the Falcons.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Personal absence Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/personal) is not practicing Wednesday for family reasons, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lawrence was also limited during the second half of Sunday's win over the Falcons due to a knee injury, so it'll be worth monitoring his activity when he returns to the team. With Everson Griffen on deck, the Cowboys have a more than competent option available in the event that Lawrence is forced to miss any time.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (knee/personal) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence's knee injury limited his snaps during the second half of Sunday's win over the Falcons, and it looks as though he may currently be trending in the wrong direction for Week 3. The starting defensive end still has two more chances to increase his practice activity before a decision is made about his status, but Everson Griffen would be in line for increased work if Lawrence ends up forced to miss time.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Hampered by knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Lawrence is dealing with a knee injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence was hampered by this injury during this past Sunday's win over the Falcons, spending an unordinary amount of time on the sidelines and finishing with just 37 percent of defensive snaps. He'll be monitored closely during the upcoming practice week, and McCarthy relayed that he'll know more following Wednesday's practice. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game versus Seattle, Everson Griffen is next in line to start at defensive end.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Plays limited snaps in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence saw limited action in the second half of Sunday's wild comeback win over the Falcons due to a knee injury, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Fifth-round pick Bradlee Anae took most of the snaps in his place. Lawrence was having an active day before getting hurt, recording five tackles, but he's still looking for his first sack of 2020. Expect his status to become clearer once the Cowboys begin preparations for their Week 3 tilt in Seattle.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Inks voidable extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys signed Lawrence to a one-year voidable extension Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The Cowboys converted $15 million of Lawrence's base salary for 2020 into a signing bonus, freeing up $12 million in cap space this year. The move could signal that the Cowboys are exploring the free agent market, or possibly that contract talks with Dak Prescott have progressed. Lawrence and Dallas had agreed to terms on a five-year, $105 million deal this offseason.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Receives help up front
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The offseason additions of Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe figure to make things a bit easier for Lawrence (back) in 2020, David Helman and Jonny Auping of the Cowboys' official site report.

Lawrence played in all 16 games for the third consecutive season in 2019, but his sack total (five) was cut in half from the previous year as he played through shoulder issues before a back injury felled him in the last game. The 28-year-old should be healthy entering 2020, with the signings of McCoy and Poe set to provide a significant interior presence , which could help Lawrence reach double-digit sacks once again.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Struggles through rough season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (back) wrapped up the 2019 campaign with 45 tackles (30 solo) including five sacks, two passes defended, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

After signing a long-term contract extension last April, Lawrence immediately underwent shoulder surgery that required a lengthy recovery period, and he never seemed to get fully healthy after missing most of training camp and the preseason. Although he played in all 16 games in 2019, the 27-year-old recorded only half a sack over the season's second half as he was slowed by various bumps and bruises. His mere presence and reputation still commanded plenty of attention and allowed Robert Quinn to have a big year opposite him on the line (11.5 sacks), and Lawrence's 29 QB pressures wasn't far behind Quinn's 35 despite the disparity in their sack totals. With a full offseason to rest and recuperate, Lawrence should be able to return to the form that saw him pile up 25 sacks in 2017-18.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Out for remainder of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (back) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Redskins, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Lawrence left during the first half and won't be able to complete the crucial divisional clash. If the Cowboys miss the playoffs, his regular season will end with 45 tackles and five sacks, with him failing to hit double digits in the latter category for the first time in three seasons.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Dealing with new injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (ribs) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Washington, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

It's unclear how Lawrence picked up the injury and he left the game in the second quarter. He was also dealing with a shoulder injury heading into the game and it's unclear if both injuries are related. In any event, with the veteran sidelined, Dorance Armstrong stands to see a slight uptick in snaps.

Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: Good to go Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Redskins, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lawrence practiced as a limited participant Friday, but he apparently showed enough during the limited session to avoid the questionable tag. The 27-year-old should serve in his usual starting role at defensive end for Dallas.

December 25, 2019 05:04 PM
Cowboys' DeMarcus Lawrence: No-go in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lawrence (shoulder) is listed as a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence seems to have emerged from Sunday's loss to Philadelphia a bit dinged up. His practice participation over the rest of the week will be telling for his Week 17 availability.
