Before injuring his shoulder, Awuzie was able to haul in his first career interception Sunday. The rookie second-round pick has seen an increased role in the four previous games, making 16 tackles and breaking up six passes. Awuzie proved a lot down the final stretch, so he should be on fantasy radars once the 2018 season approaches.
Awuzie was able to practice in full ahead of Week 10's game against the Falcons, but he was still listed as inactive on game day. This could be because of the Cowboys' health at secondary combined with it being unnecessary to rush back a depth player in his first season. Therefore, Wednesday's full practice doesn't guarantee he'll be available for Sunday, but it does bode well for his chances.
Awuzie (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Awuzie will miss his third consecutive game, and with under 60 total defensive snaps this season, it's tough to tell what the rookie second-round pick can do. He was given a questionable designation Friday, which bodes well for his chances of playing in Week 11 against the Eagles.
It's Awuzie's first full practice in over a month, but he'll likely need to string together a couple practices before being declared fully clear of the injury. The 22-year-old is unlikely to play a major role in the Cowboy's defense right off the bat, given the extensive time the rookie has missed.
Awuzie (hamstring) is expected to practice this week with a possibility of playing Sunday against Atlanta, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Cowboys rookie has missed five of the last six games nursing the sore hamstring, but should he hold up well in practice this week, it appears he'll be in line to suit up. Whether he'll assume a bigger role when on the field remains to be seen, however.
