Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Woods (hamstring) is, "getting closer to playing," but his status for Sunday's game against the Giants is still in question, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
While Woods appears to be trending in the right direction in his recovery, there still seems to be very little clarity surrounding his health. Expect an official update on Woods to come when the Cowboys release their first injury report of the week.
Woods (hamstring) did not practice Friday and has been ruled out of Sunday's regular season opener against the Panthers, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Woods stated to the media earlier this week that his hamstring was feeling better, but evidently the injury has not healed enough for him to be deemed ready to play. Kavon Frazier (shoulder) is on track to suit up Sunday, and both he and Tyree Robinson figure to be the main beneficiaries of Woods sitting out.
Woods (hamstring) won't practice Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Woods has been nursing a strained hamstring for more three weeks and remains in danger of missing the season opener against Carolina on Sunday. The 23-year-old's availability could be a game-time decision if he is unable to fully return to practice this week.
Woods (hamstring) was diagnosed with a hamstring strain and will be out 2-4 weeks.
The severity of Woods' hamstring issue is now known, but the diagnosis does little to clear up the Cowboys potential dilemma at safety with the regular season set to begin in three weeks. The 23-year-old firmly retains the questionable tag but some additional clarity should come as the front end of the return timetable comes closer. Kavon Frazier and Marquestion Huff (groin) -- who is also currently sidelined -- are likely the next men up for Dallas.
Woods (hamstring) may not be ready for Week 1's game against the Panthers, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.
There's nothing official out on Woods yet, but the Cowboys are currently working to determine how severe his hamstring injury is. Expect an update on Woods' status to come at some point this week, but with just three weeks to go before the start of the season, it's possible Dallas could be without its starting free safety for an extended time.
