Cowboys' Leighton Vander Esch: Unlikely to practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vander Esch (groin) isn't expected to practice before Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The rookie first-round pick notched four tackles in his preseason debut against the 49ers, but he missed the next game with a groin injury. It's still bothering him, and it's unclear if he'll be able to play Sunday without any practice time first. The rest of the Cowboys linebacker corps is healthy, so fantasy owners should be curious to see how they incorporate Vander Esch into their defense if he can play.

Cowboys' Leighton Vander Esch: Expected to sit out preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vander Esch (groin) is not expected to take the field during Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Vander Esch suffered a groin strain during Wednesday's practice session, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the team will likely take the cautious route with its first-round pick. It's not expected to be serious, however, so there's a decent chance he will return to the gridiron in short order.

Cowboys' Leighton Vander Esch: Suffers groin strain Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vander Esch left practice early Thursday after suffering a groin strain during team drills, the Dallas Morning News reports. Owner Jerry Jones indicated afterward that "it didn't seem serious," also indicating that he was held out for precautionary reasons.

Fortunately, it appears Vander Esch has escaped serious damage and should be back in the fold in short order. The rookie first-round pick will likely be utilized in some capacity this fall, though he's worked mainly with the second-team defense at middle linebacker behind Jalen Smith during camp.
