Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Could start in Year 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern (pectoral) will compete with Connor Williams (knee) for the starting left guard job in training camp, Brian Martin of Inside the Star reports.

A pectoral injury sustained during training camp last year relegated McGovern to injured reserve for his entire rookie campaign, but he'll be ready to go for Week 1. His biggest obstacle to overcome while battling for the No. 1 left guard gig will be an offseason with shortened in-person activities. On the other hand, Williams is recovering from a torn ACL suffered late November, which could open up a window for McGovern to usurp him with an impressive training camp.

Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Remaining on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern (pectoral) is not yet ready to resume practicing and may not be activated to the 53-man roster this season, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

McGovern is working to recover from a torn pectoral suffered in training camp. It's looking increasingly likely that the rookie third-round pick will ultimately chalk up his 2019 season as a redshirt year.

Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Working back to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern (pectoral) is progressing in his recovery from a torn pectoral and is almost back to full strength, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

McGovern was the Cowboys' third-round pick this offseason but landed on IR after tearing his pectoral in training camp. The interior offensive lineman could be activated after Week 8 if he's healthy and the team determines they could use another backup at the position.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Could miss 2019 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern (pectoral) suffered a setback and may not be able to play this season, Todd Archer of reports.

McGovern has been out since suffering a pectoral strain in June and now his season is in jeopardy after the setback. The 21-year-old is likely to be placed on injured reserve, but the Cowboys could wait until after roster cutdowns Saturday to give the rookie third-round pick a chance of returning later in the season.

Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Still dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern (pectoral) is still recovering from the pectoral injury he sustained in the offseason, but he won't be placed on the PUP list, reports.

Head coach Jason Garrett said Friday the rookie will "ease back into" practice during training camp. McGovern is expected to provide some interior depth for Dallas this season, but if Connor Williams continues to struggle at left guard, a starting opportunity could open up later in the season for the 2019 third-round pick.

Cowboys' Connor McGovern: Sidelined for minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGovern will not participate in minicamp this week due to a pectoral strain, Todd Archer of reports.

The Cowboys don't appear to be too concerned with the rookie's injury, as it will not require surgery. McGovern will have a little over a month off before the Cowboys return to the practice field for training camp, so look for the team to provide an update on his status then.
