Switzer was slowed down by a hamstring injury throughout camp, but it appears he has recovered from the issue. The 2017 fourth-round draft pick will return punts and kicks for the Cowboys this season, as well as provide depth at wide receiver. Barring any setbacks, he is on track to play Sunday night.
Switzer dealt with a hamstring injury throughout much of training camp, but he was expected to return for the Cowboys' final preseason game until it was cancelled. He figures to get most of his playing time on special teams, considering he's merely listed as the backup to No. 3 receiver Cole Beasley on the offensive depth chart. Switzer might have a regular role in the slot if Beasley were to miss time with an injury.
Switzer (hamstring) is expected to play in Thursday's preseason game versus the Texans, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Switzer suffered a hamstring injury during the first week of training camp but seems to be closing in on his professional debut. Backing up the assessment, he took part in 11-on-11 drills near the end of Monday's practice, according to David Helman of the Cowboys' official site, which is generally an indication that a player is implementing an upcoming game plan. In the end, though, the Cowboys may exercise caution Thursday with the health of one of their likely regular-season returners in mind.
Switzer is unlikely to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Raiders due to a hamstring injury, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
While the rookie receiver was a limited participant in practice this week, the Cowboys are still going to hold off and letting him return to the field. It's likely just precautionary, as Switzer appears to have secured a spot on the team's final roster thanks in large part to his abilities as a return man.
Switzer (hamstring) was shown participating in agility drills Tuesday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Switzer is a serious contender for return duties in Dallas, and the video shows a few reasons why. This is set to keep Switzer on the Week 1 roster, and his preseason contributions in the last two games can only help his offensive snap counts this season.
