Mayowa (knee) is back at practice Thursday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Mayowa is practicing with the first team in drills, so it looks as if he's put the injury behind him entirely after being sidelined Wednesday. Mayowa is, however, expected to open up the regular season in a backup role on the defensive line.
It is unclear when Mayowa sustained an injury, but he started in the Cowboys most recent exhibition game. The 26-year-old has been dealing with knee stiffness during camp, so that could potentially be acting up again. The Cowboys are likely being cautious here, so look for Mayowa to still enter the season in a rotational role on the defensive line.
Mayowa (knee) started at defensive end for Saturday's preseason game against the Colts.
Mayowa played 13 defensive snaps and recorded two total tackles, including one tackle for a loss. The 26-year-old had been dealing with stiffness in his knee, but currently seems healthy and is expected to start the season as a backup defensive end.
Mayowa missed Monday's practice due to stiffness in his knee, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Mayowa's knee stiffness is the result of a long flight. Thus, the issue does not likely to be a problem going forward. Should he make the final roster, the 26-year-old projects to provide depth at defensive end this season.
The fact that Mayowa, who went down in Organized Team Activities with an unspecified knee injury, wasn't placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list suggests his current situation isn't too serious. It shouldn't be long until he's back to normal.
