Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Career-high four sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis wrapped up the 2019 season with 51 tackles (38 solo) including four sacks, two interceptions on six passes defended and a fumble return for a touchdown.

The third-year corner solidified his spot as the Cowboys' top slot option, recording career highs in sacks and INTs as well as his first visit to the end zone. His 73.8 QB rating allowed on 47 pass attempts in his direction wasn't bad either, and with Byron Jones headed to free agency in the offseason, Lewis could become a key figure in the Dallas secondary in 2020.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Two sacks versus Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis notched six tackles (four solo), two sacks and one defended pass during Thursday's 26-15 loss to the Bills.

Lewis now has three sacks on the season. The third-year pro has thrived in his role as a nickelback through 12 contests, but his IDP upside remains somewhat limited due to his standing behind Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie on the depth chart.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Caps win with first career TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis scooped up a Daniel Jones fumble and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown in Monday's win over the Giants.

The score was the first of Lewis' career, and he also added a season-high six tackles to his ledger for the night. The third-year player remains behind Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie on the depth chart, limiting his IDP upside, but Lewis is having a strong season as a slot corner/nickelback, recording 19 tackles with a sack and an INT through eight games while allowing a paltry 38.0 QB rating on eight attempts in his direction.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Records first INT of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis notched four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

The Cowboys' defensive back has just nine tackles on the season, and Lewis' interception Sunday was his first of the year. Until his production increases substantially, the 24-year-old cornerback should not be considered in IDP formats.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Reduced role in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis had 12 tackles (10 solo) and one interception in 15 games this season.

Lewis had a heavy workload during his rookie campaign in 2017, but he saw double-digit defensive snaps in only three games this season. The 23-year-old was entrenched as the Cowboys' No. 4 cornerback and worked mostly in dime packages. Lewis is likely to begin 2019 in a similar role with Chidobe Awuzie, Byron Jones and Anthony Brown all under contract next year.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Will work as No. 3 corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis will serve as the third cornerback with Anthony Brown (back) out of Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Todd Archer of reports.

Lewis had tons of responsibility in his rookie season but has dropped to a majority special-teams role with Chidobe Awuzie healthy in 2018. Lewis will have an opportunity to prove he belongs again versus a strong Bucs passing attack and a chance to clinch the playoffs with a win.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Finishes strong in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis collected 54 tackles and 10 passes defended, including an interception, in 15 games in 2017.

The third-round pick had worked his way into the starting lineup by the end of the season and made some big plays, although he also got burned a few times, something that isn't surprising for a first-year cornerback. Lewis figures to be a big part of a young and improving Cowboys secondary in 2018, although his IDP value likely will be limited.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Locked into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis is expected to retain a starting role at cornerback following the Cowboys' release of Nolan Carroll (concussion) on Wednesday, Conor Orr of NFL Network reports.

Carroll struggled in training camp and hadn't been performing well prior to sustaining a concussion in Week 2, with the head injury preventing him from taking the field ever since. Thus, it made sense for Dallas to cut ties with Carroll and the two years remaining on his contract, and Lewis' strong performance thus far only made that decision easier. The rookie out of Michigan has arguably been the Cowboys' best cornerback, averaging 5.5 tackles and 1.3 pass breakups per game, with his best performance coming against the Packers and two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers last Sunday. In the Cowboys' loss, Lewis recorded seven total tackles and defensed three passes. While he isn't quite on the IDP radar at this juncture, Lewis' stock is certainly on the rise, making him someone to keep an eye on for the future.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lewis went down with a hamstring injury in Monday's victory over the Cardinals, but his presence at practice two days later indicates the issue was never viewed as serious. Barring any setbacks, Lewis should assume a depth role in the secondary in Week 4 against the Rams.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's game against Arizona, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lewis still managed to record six tackles despite suffering the injury, but it's unclear if the hamstring issue will linger into Week 4 against the Rams.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Doesn't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) was inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jori Epstein of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Lewis has been out with the hamstring injury for majority of training camp, but he was questionable for Sunday after practicing in a limited fashion this past week. Lewis should be seen as day-to-day heading into Week 2.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Giants.

Lewis missed significant time throughout training camp with the hamstring injury and now his status for Week 1 is in doubt. The 22-year-old was limited in practice this week, and the Cowboys' recent acquisition of Bene Benwikere will help provide some depth in the secondary if Lewis is unable to play.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Remains day-to-day with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis said Wednesday that his ailing hamstring feels much better, but he remains day-to-day, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The former Michigan Wolverine has been sidelined since July 29. When healthy, the plan remains for him to compete for a supporting role in the Cowboys' secondary.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Unlikely to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) needs a few more days to recover and is not expected to play against the Rams on Saturday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The University of Michigan product already missed out on the Hall of Fame Game. Lewis wasn't expected to make a a serious case for a starting position in Dallas, but he was expected to battle for a backup job behind Anthony Brown (hamstring) and Orlando Scandrick.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Sidelined for HOF Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game, Jon Machota of the Dallas News reports.

Lewis exited Saturday's practice with a hamstring injury and hasn't participated since. It isn't clear how much longer he could be out. In his absence, Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Awuzie should be the first to see playing time behind starters Anthony Brown and Orlando Scandrick.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Sits out Sunday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) didn't practice Sunday, Todd Archer of reports.

Lewis tweaked his hamstring during Saturday's session and is being labeled as day-to-day. Given the nature of hamstring injuries, the Cowboys will play it safe and allow the rookie ample time to recover before throwing him back into the gauntlet that is training camp.

July 29, 2017 10:40 PM
Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Leaves practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis left Saturday's practice early with a hamstring injury, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Cowboys don't yet know the severity of Lewis' injury. This was Lewis' first practice with the team since he was found not guilty of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Returns to team Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was back at practice Thursday, the Cowboys' official site reports.

A not-guilty verdict Tuesday in his domestic-violence trial cleared the way for his return to the Cowboys, but the third-round pick is still a little behind the rest of his rookie DB cohorts in training camp. Lewis didn't take part in any team drills on defense but did see some work as a punt returner, although Ryan Switzer is expected to hold that role in the regular season. In any case, Lewis should begin team drills by Saturday.

Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Found not guilty in court Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was found not guilty of misdemeanor domestic violence Tuesday, The Dallas Morning News reports.

The trial followed an incident with Lewis' girlfriend from March 15. With a decision made on the matter, he'll now report to Cowboys training camp, which kicked off Saturday. After his selection in the third round of the 2017 draft, he'll be competing with Anthony Brown and fellow rookie Chidobe Awuzie, among others, for snaps at cornerback.

July 20, 2017 11:00 AM
Cowboys' Jourdan Lewis: Set for trial next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis will stand trial early next week for a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, Dan Murphy of reports.

Lewis' trial could be done as early as Tuesday, but that would still force the 2017 third-round pick to miss the first couple days of training camp. Upon his return, the rookie will be competing for playing time at cornerback behind Anthony Brown and Orlando Scandrick.
