by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Knight (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Knight underwent knee surgery Tuesday and will be required to miss at least three games due to his placement on IR. With Tyron Smith (neck) also on IR, the Cowboys activated Cameron Erving (knee) from IR to start at left tackle against a menacing Washington pass rush. Knight is eligible to return Week 11 against the Vikings.

Cowboys' Brandon Knight: Out after knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Washington after undergoing knee surgery Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The specifics of the injury/surgery remain unclear, but according to Jon Machota of The Athletic, the 23-year-old will be sidelined for at least a couple weeks. It's yet another blow for the Cowboys' offensive line, which is already without starters Tyron Smith (neck) and La'el Collins (hip). Zack Martin's status is also in doubt due to a concussion. Assuming he's activated off injured reserve this week, Cameron Erving (knee) likely will slot in at left tackle during Knight's absence.

Cowboys' Brandon Knight: Healthy scratch Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 12-10 loss to the Saints, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Knight spent much of training camp recovering from a torn plantar fascia, and he now appears healthy. With Connor Williams and Xavier Su'a-Filo healthy, Knight provides the Cowboys with little more than a reserve option at left guard.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight suffered a torn plantar fascia during Thursday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Knight was carted off the field during the practice session last week. For now, he remains without a timetable to return, but the injury does hinder Knight's chances of making the Cowboys' final roster.

Cowboys' Brandon Knight: Leaves practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight left Thursday's practice on a cart after suffering an apparent injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Knight removed his right shoe before being carted off the field, indicating that his issue could be related to his right leg or foot. In any case, the details and severity of his injury remain unknown at this time. When healthy, Knight projects to compete for a depth role along the Cowboys' offensive line.
