Woods has been hindered by a hamstring injury throughout training camp. He is competing for a role providing depth at safety, so more practice reps will be advantageous for this chances.
Woods (hamstring) participated in Thursday's practice, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Woods was unable to play in the team's second preseason game against the Colts due to a hamstring injury, but it appears as though the ailment is minor with the defensive back returning to the field Thursday. After a impressive debut with the Cowboys, the sixth-round pick out of Louisana Tech is expected to be in good standing in regards to final roster cuts. Look for Woods to return to the field Saturday against the Raiders.
Woods (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Woods reportedly impressed during the team's first preseason contest but won't be available to follow his debut with a second performance. While the Cowboys' sixth-round pick will sit out, his early play likely places him on solid footing as far as a 53-man roster goes. Still, it would behoove him to retake the field at some point in the preseason to further establish himself with the squad.
Woods is as good of a value pick as any team could hope to find at this point in the draft, and his landing spot in Dallas is ideal. On tape, Woods showed an ability to play center field and track the ball, which helped him pick off five passes as a senior. However, he also showed willingness as a tackler when Louisiana Tech lined him up in the box. Considering Dallas' exodus of defensive backs this offseason, reloading through the draft was a priority. Woods is yet another defensive back that could find his way onto the field as a rookie despite his low draft slot.
