Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers sustained a hamstring injury during Thursday's preseason game against Tampa Bay, Lindsay Draper of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Showers deflected a pass during the first quarter that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown, but he went down with the hamstring injury in the third quarter and was subsequently ruled out. The 27-year-old faces long odds to crack the Cowboys' 53-man roster regardless of the injury.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Cleared for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers (knee) registered five tackles in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Showers was sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign after suffering a torn ACL, but he's since returned to health and played 42 snaps in Saturday's exhibition. He'll compete for a depth role in the Cowboys' secondary moving forward.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Back on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers (knee) participated in Dallas' June minicamp, Kristi Scales of the Dallas Cowboys Radio Network reports.

Showers missed all of 2018 after suffering a torn ACL in August. Even if the 26-year-old fully recovers in time for training camp -- which he is expected to -- he'll face stiff competition at the strong safety position from Jeff Heath, George Iloka and Kavon Frazier. Showers has yet to see the field during a regular-season game in his career.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Showers (knee) on injured reserve Monday.

This was the expected move as Showers is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, although the specifics of the injury remain unconfirmed. The Cowboys signed safety Dominick Sanders to bolster their depth at defensive back.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Likely headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers (knee) is likely to be placed on injured reserve, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic Dallas reports.

While no move has officially been made yet, it appears Showers' season could soon be over with an injured reserve stint looming in the near future. Reports from Sunday hinted that Showers probably tore his ACL, but the confirmation of such an injury has yet to be made public. With Showers unavailable moving forward, look for Kyle Queiro to move up the depth chart.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers suffered a knee injury that the Cowboys' believe to be a torn ACL, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Showers will have an MRI on Sunday to confirm the status of his knee. If it's as bad as expected, he'll be placed on IR and be out for the remainder of the year. Kyle Queiro will figure to take Showers' place on the depth chart.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Signs with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Monday.

Showers signed with Dallas' practice squad as a quarterback in early September but was then converted to safety. With a full offseason working in the secondary he may be able to secure a role as a depth safety and special teams player in 2017.

Jameill Showers: Converting to safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers is not joining the Cowboys' active roster, but he is converting from quarterback to safety, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

It was erroneously reported Showers will join the active roster, and while that part isn't actually true, it turns out he really is in the process of learning to play safety. With Dak Prescott thriving and Tony Romo (back) nearing a return, the Cowboys may envision Showers' long-term future being that of an emergency No. 3 quarterback and reserve safety, potentially with a role on special teams. The 2015 UDFA still faces a tough path before he can make any kind of NFL impact.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Getting promotion as safety/special teamer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers is getting a promotion from the Cowboys' practice squad to the active roster, but he'll be serving as a safety and special teamer, as opposed to a backup quarterback,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

If Showers is active for Sunday's game against Cincinnati, he'll likely just play special teams while serving as an emergency option at quarterback and safety. Mark Sanchez will still be the top backup to Dak Prescott.

Jameill Showers: Signed to Dallas practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers was signed to the Dallas practice squad on Monday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

Showers was released by the Cowboys on Saturday, after the team signed Mark Sanchez to open the season as Dak Prescott's backup. If Sanchez or Prescott were to suffer an injury before Tony Romo (back) returns, Showers might find his way back onto the Dallas roster. The 2015 UDFA spent the vast majority of last season on the practice squad.

Jameill Showers: Released by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers was waived by the Cowboys on Sunday, Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Showers spent the entire preseason with the Cowboys, finishing with totals of 318 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. However, the Cowboys opted to sign free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez on Saturday and elected not to put Tony Romo (back) on IR, so they no longer had room for Showers on the roster. It wouldn't be surprising if Showers ends up on a practice squad in the near future.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Poor showing in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers completed 10 of 25 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown while losing a fumble and throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans.

He played the entire game as Dak Prescott was held out in advance of his Week 1 start, but Showers did little to convince the Cowboys he can be an adequate backup for Prescott while Tony Romo (back) is on the shelf. Expect the front office to bring in a veteran quarterback to be the No. 2 before the regular season begins.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Could play entire preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys plan for Showers to play the entirety of Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans, reports.

With Tony Romo (back) facing an extended absence and Dak Prescott being rested for Week 1, the Cowboy are left with Showers, a 2015 UDFA, as the only available quarterback. Wideout Cole Beasley would then serve as the backup in case Showers were to suffer an injury, but the Cowboys will likely sign another quarterback before Thursday, as Beasley is actually an important part of the offense at his regular position. It's unclear if Showers or a late veteran addition will open the season as Prescott's top backup.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Impressing early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers outperformed fourth round pick Dak Prescott during Thursday's practice, The Dallas Morning News reports.

With Kellen Moore (ankle) out 3-4 months, the Cowboys are in the market for a new backup to Tony Romo. The team will likely bring in a more experienced QB at some point to fill that spot, but until they do the competition is between Prescott and second-year player Showers and, at least on Thursday, the latter has looked a lot better in the pocket, making quicker decisions and throwing more accurate passes. It's a long shot for Showers to have any fantasy value this season and even cracking the 53-man roster would be unexpected, but at least through the early days of camp he's taking advantage of his opportunities.

Cowboys' Jameill Showers: Added to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Showers was added to the 53-man roster Friday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Showers has served as the Cowboys' scout team quarterback for much of the season, but he'll join the active roster Sunday in the wake of Tony Romo (collarbone) being placed on season-ending IR. Showers began his collegiate career at Texas A&M before transferring to UTEP for his final two seasons of eligibility.
