Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson recorded 10 tackles (six solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Browns.

He replaced Darian Thompson in the base defense midway through the game, and Wilson took full advantage of the opportunity, leading the Cowboys in tackles on the afternoon. The second-year safety may be on the verge of taking the starting assignment from Thompson on a more permanent basis, and given the state of the Dallas run defense, Wilson could find himself providing consistently solid IDP numbers.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (illness) was not listed on Monday's injury report, Bills Insider Chris Brown reports.

Wilson was not able to play in Sunday's loss to the Patriots due to illness, but it appears he has made a recovery. Monday's injury report was more of an estimation by the Cowboys, so keep an eye out for any updates with Thursday's game against the Bills looming.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Can't knock illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (illness) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Patriots, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Wilson didn't suit up in practice Thursday or Friday due to the ailment, and as evidenced by this news, couldn't knock the illness in time to play Sunday. Darian Thompson is expected to see some extra snaps providing depth in the secondary for Week 12 in Wilson's absence.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots due to an illness, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Wilson was a non-participant at Thursday's and Friday's practices and is looking like a true game-time decision come Sunday. Darian Thompson could see some extra snaps providing depth in the secondary if he is ultimately unable to give it a go.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Out again Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is a coach's decision inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Redskins.

Wilson missed Week 1 due to an ankle injury. He's recovered from his injury, but with the team fairly healthy he's being scratched as a depth player. When he is active he's likely to primarily serve as a special teams player and depth defender.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) will not play in Sunday's season opener against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Wilson was absent from practice throughout the week, which renders this decision relatively unsurprising. The rookie sixth-round pick impressed throughout the preseason and is expected to provide depth at strong safety this year.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Last week, Wilson told owner Jerry Jones he expected to practice ahead of Week 1's game versus the Giants, but that will have to wait until either Thursday or Friday. The rookie sixth-round pick had a successful preseason and received one of the highest grades of any rookie by Pro Football Focus, so he may be used immediately in dime packages and when Jeff Heath or Xavier Woods need a breather.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Expects to practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) told owner Jerry Jones he expects to be able to practice next week in advance of the regular-season opener against the Giants, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Wilson suffered the ankle injury during Thursday's preseason finale versus the Buccaneers, but he apparently received good news after undergoing X-rays. The rookie sixth-round pick is poised to work as a reserve safety for Dallas this season.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Goes down with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is questionable to return to Thursday's preseason game against Tampa Bay due to a left ankle injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Wilson was helped to the locker room for X-rays after suffering the injury. After the contest, Wilson stated that he simply rolled the ankle, and that "It's fine," per David Helman of the Cowboys' official site. The team will likely wait to see how he responds in the coming days before clearing him for action.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Opening eyes in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has received the highest grade of any rookie from Pro Football Focus through the first three weeks of the preseason, Joey Hayden of The Dallas Morning News reports.

That's not the highest grade of any first-year safety -- it's the highest grade of any rookie at any position. While the amount of playing time he's gotten while fighting for a roster spot, and the quality of the opposition he's faced, certainly factor into that ranking, Wilson's more than passed the eye test as well, snagging two interceptions. All signs point to the sixth-round pick opening the year on the 53-man roster, and if he continues to develop as rapidly as he's shown in camp, it may not be long before he's pushing Jeff Heath for a starting spot.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Works with first-team defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson saw action with the first-team defense during Tuesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jeff Heath is sidelined with a minor neck stinger, so the Cowboys decided to see what Wilson could do with the ones. A sixth-round pick this year out of Texas A&M, he's making a strong push for a roster spot, but his contributions would likely be limited to special teams and dime packages barring a more serious injury ahead of him on the depth chart at safety.

Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Onto Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys selected Wilson in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 213th overall.

Safety was a need for the Cowboys coming into the draft and Wilson helps address that. He's old for a rookie at 24, but the Texas A&M Aggie is experienced and had four forced fumbles and eight interceptions during an injury-filled college career.
