Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Hooking up with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders and Heath agreed to terms of a contract Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Despite dealing with a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery in January, Heath totaled 63 tackles and seven pass breakups in 13 appearances last season. Throughout his seven-year career, he surpassed 60 tackles on four occasions, but he likely will have to compete with Erik Harris for a starting gig at strong safety in the Raiders' first campaign in Las Vegas.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath underwent surgery on his left shoulder Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Heath dealt with issues in both shoulders for most of the season, but he may be able to avoid a procedure on the right one. The 28-year-old is headed for free agency coming off an unimpressive 2019 campaign in which he had 63 tackles (41 solo) and zero interceptions or forced fumbles.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Unimpressive in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath finished the 2019 season with 63 tackles (41 solo) and seven passes defended in 13 games.

There has always been some question about whether the hard-hitting Heath is anything more than a glorified special-teams ace who is an awkward fit as a starting safety, and the 28-year-old gave doubters plenty of ammunition this year. While a shoulder injury limited him to a career low in games played and his lowest snap count (734) in three years, he also failed to record an interception for the first time since 2014 and allowed a rough 92.8 QB rating on the 39 pass attempts sent his way. An unrestricted free agent, Heath's tenure in Dallas could be over, although the team's likely cap crunch could invite a reunion at a discounted price.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Logs full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

There were whispers inside the Cowboys organization that Heath would require surgery to repair his shoulder injury, but that's no longer the case. The 28-year-old safety logged a full practice Thursday and all signs point to Heath taking the field for Sunday's matchup with the Rams.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: May require shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) may require surgery to repair his injured labrum, but he's still attempting to play and has participated in parts of practice this week, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath has been out for the Cowboys past two games, both of which were losses. Darian Thompson has filled in for Heath at safety, and he should continue to do so if the latter is eventually unable to go in Week 15. A better feel for Heath's availability will likely be available later this week.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Won't suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Bears, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

After not practicing all week, Heath will miss his second straight game as he tries shaking this lingering shoulder issue. Darian Thompson is expected to start at safety in Heath's place.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: No practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is a non-participant in Monday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath sat out Thanksgiving Day's loss to the Bills due to a lingering shoulder injury, and he hasn't yet resumed practicing in any capacity. It looks as though the 28-year-old is trending toward missing Thursday's tilt against the Bears, in which case Darian Thompson would likely draw another start at strong safety.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Won't face Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Bills, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

With Heath sidelined, expect Darian Thompson to take over as Dallas' starting strong safety Thanksgiving Day. The 28-year-old aggravated his lingering shoulder injury during Week 12's game against the Patriots.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Questionable against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Bills, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Heath shook off his shoulder injury ahead of this past Sunday's loss to the Patriots, but it looked like he aggravated the issue on multiple occasions during the contest. The 28-year-old safety was limited in practice all week. If Heath is ruled inactive before the 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff, Darian Thompson should handle the starting duties.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath missed Week 11's win over the Lions while nursing injuries in both shoulders, so Wednesday's unrestricted practice session is a notable step in the right direction. Barring any setbacks, it looks as though Heath is on track to draw his usual start against the Patriots on Sunday.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Officially out vs. Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

As expected, Heath will miss his first game since the 2017 season after being a limited participant in practice all week. In the veteran safety's stead, Darian Thompson is expected to take over at starting strong safety.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is not expected to play in Sunday's road test against the Lions, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

Heath was forced out of last Sunday night's game against the Vikings with the issue, and only logged limited practice time this week. As always, make sure to check when inactives come out an hour and a half before kickoff before making his absence official. In his stead, Darian Thompson is the likely replacement to draw the start at strong safety Sunday.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is questionable for Week 11.

Heath was forced out of Sunday's game against the Vikings but has logged limited practices all week. If he's ultimately unable to go, Darian Thompson would likely absorb most of that playing time.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulders) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Heath entered Sunday's game against the Vikings nursing shoulder and knee injuries, and it now appears he's dealing with injuries to both shoulders. However, the fact he's practicing to begin the week puts him on track to play Week 11.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Return questionable due to shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Minnesota, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Heath tried to play through the injury by logging a few special teams snaps after ceding his defensive role, but he's now left the game altogether, at least for the moment.

November 8, 2019 04:32 PM
Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder/knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's contest against the Vikings, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Heath logged two straight limited practices to begin the week, but he managed to participate without restrictions Friday. He'll draw his usual start at strong safety versus the Vikings on Sunday.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Heath was forced out of Monday's win over the Giants due to a laceration in his knee, the severity of which caused him to receive 12 stitches. The starting strong safety's limited session provides hope that he'll be able to retake the field without missing time, though he could need to upgrade to a full practice this week before being cleared to suit up versus Minnesota.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Receives stitches for knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath did not return to Monday's 37-18 win over the Giants due to a knee issue, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath suffered a knee laceration while making a tackle during the second half's opening kickoff, an injury for which he required 12 stitches. It remains to be seen whether the starting safety and special-teams captain will be forced to miss future game action. Count on Wednesday's first injury report of the week to shine some light on Heath's chances of suiting up Sunday versus Minnesota.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Leaves game with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath is questionable to return to Monday's contest against the Giants due to a leg injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath suffered the injury making a tackle on the opening kickoff of the second half. Before being forced out of Monday's bout, Heath recorded three tackles (one solo).

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Solid output Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath collected nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's blowout win over the Giants.

Heath was all over the field in the win, even making a tackle for loss and adding two defensed passes to add to his impressive stat line. He and Xavier Woods provide a solid duo at the safety position and will get a solid match up against the Redskins for Week 2.
