Cowboys' Anthony Hitchens: Will not require knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hitchens (knee) will not need surgery after tests revealed he has no ligament damage, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While this is definitely good news, Hitchens will still be sidelined about eight weeks with the tibial plateau fracture he suffered last week, potentially keeping him out until the Cowboys return from their Week 6 bye. The fact that he won't need surgery leads us to the notion that his recovery process will be somewhat smooth, or at least smoother than it would be trying to rehab from surgery. With Hitchens still out for half the season, Dallas will likely lean on veteran Justin Durant and Notre Dame product Jaylon Smith during his absence.

Cowboys' Anthony Hitchens: Out eight weeks with knee fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hitchens (knee) has a tibial plateau fracture and will be out eight weeks, Todd Archer of reports.

There are two ways to look at this. Obviously, the loss is devastating for Hitchens who was expected to start at inside linebacker this season. However, the break is not a torn ACL which would have cost Hitchens the entire 2017 season. Hitchens can theoretically be back for Week 7 which seems like the target return date as of right now.

Cowboys' Anthony Hitchens: MRI coming Sunday, injury could be season-ending
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hitchens (knee) will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the seriousness of his injury, which could be season-ending, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This is potentially devastating news for Hitchens and the Cowboys. Not has he been the starting middle linebacker, but Hitchens has also been filling in for Sean Lee (hamstring) at weakside linebacker. If the injury does end up being season-ending, 2016 second-round pick Jaylon Smith (knee) will have to step up.

Cowboys' Anthony Hitchens: Injures knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hitchens (knee) went down during Saturday's game against Oakland, Todd Archer of reports.

The Cowboys are crossing their fingers that Hitchens is all right, or else their defensive problems will escalate. Hitchens was the starting middle linebacker, but he has also been filling in for Sean Lee (hamstring) at weakside linebacker. If this injury is serious, Dallas will need 2016 second-round pick Jaylon Smith (knee) to seriously step up.

Cowboys' Anthony Hitchens: Suffers blow to the nose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hitchens left practice due to a bloody nose after a blow to the face, but he was able to return, Todd Archer of reports.

Hitchens has been working with the starting defense as a middle linebacker and it would've been an unfortunate break for the defense if he had been forced to miss time. Fortunately, the injury isn't expected to linger or limit him any further.
