  • Cowboys' Mike Weber: Returns to practice

    A recent MRI revealed no ligament damage in Weber's knee and the running back returned to practice with full participation Wednesday and Thursday, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Weber was held out of the last couple days of rookie minicamp earlier this month with a knee injury that at one point was thought to potentially require surgery. The Ohio State product has since returned to both individual and team drills in the first leg of OTAs this week and appears ready to compete for the No. 2 running back job in Dallas. Weber, a seventh-round pick, will primary compete with fellow rookie and fourth-round pick Tony Pollard along with veteran Darius Jackson.

  • Cowboys' Travis Frederick: Taking part in individual drills

    Frederick (illness/shoulder) has been able to work through individual drills during this week's OTAs, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    After missing all of 2018 while battling Guillain-Barre syndrome and undergoing minor shoulder surgery this offseason, it was expected that Frederick would be held out of team drills and full practices until at least training camp. It's still an encouraging sign that he's able to handle individual drills already, however. The Cowboys' offensive line took a step backwards in effectiveness last year without its starting center, so if Frederick is able to return to anything close to his prior form, it will provide a boost for the entire offense.

  • Cowboys' Christian Covington: Out with calf injury

    Covington suffered a calf injury and won't participate in this week's OTAs as a result, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    The injury doesn't seem to be serious, but this early in the offseason program, Dallas is being cautious with any player less than 100 percent. Covington is expected to supply the Cowboys with depth off the edge in 2019 after collecting 7.5 sacks in four seasons for the Texans.

  • Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Sidelined for OTAs

    Austin (undisclosed) hasn't practiced this week and won't be participating in OTAs, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Head coach Jason Garrett listed Austin among a group of players who wouldn't be rushed back into action as they recover from various medical issues. The speedy wide receiver could still be recuperating from the groin issues that derailed his 2018 campaign, limiting him to eight catches in seven games, although Garrett didn't specify the nature of his injury. Austin could also face a challenge for his gadget player/return man role from fourth-round pick Tony Pollard, so he'll need to stay healthy once he's back on the field if he wants to stay in Dallas.

  • Cowboys' Antwaun Woods: Not practicing at OTAs

    Woods (shoulder) hasn't practiced this week and won't be participating in OTAs, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Head coach Jason Garrett listed Woods among a group of players who wouldn't be rushed back into action as they recover from various medical issues. The defensive tackle underwent shoulder surgery in January, and he's expected to fill a depth role on the Cowboys' defensive line in 2019 after playing 15 games last year, recording 34 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

  • Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Sitting out OTAs

    Charlton (shoulder/ankle) hasn't practiced this week and won't be participating in OTAs, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Head coach Jason Garrett listed Charlton among a group of players who wouldn't be rushed back into action as they recover from various medical issues. Heading into his third NFL season, the 2017 first-round pick has only four sacks in 27 career games, and he's expected to fill a depth pass rush role behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn.

  • Cowboys' Cameron Fleming: Not practicing Wednesday

    Fleming was unable to practice during OTAs on Wednesday due to a bruised shin, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

    It's unclear when Fleming picked up the injury, but it's apparently serious enough to keep him out of OTAs. The 26-year-old suited up in nine games for the Cowboys last season, starting just three games. With Fleming out, Connor Williams filled in as the first-team left tackle.

  • Cowboys' Allen Hurns: Taking part in OTAs

    Hurns (ankle) has been running routes and has been cleared to participate in individual drills during OTAs this week, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Hurns dislocated his left ankle during the Cowboys' playoff victory over the Seahawks in January and has steadily recovered since undergoing surgery. There seems to be a decent chance he'll be available in full capacity for training camp.

  • Cowboys' Leighton Vander Esch: Sitting out with pelvis issue

    Vander Esch won't participate in OTAs due to a pelvic injury, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Vander Esch is looking to build on a strong rookie campaign in which he recorded a team-leading 140 tackles and two interceptions en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. The start to his follow-up act will be delayed by the injury, but it's not believed to be a major setback. Vander Esch will enter the upcoming season as one of the most valuable fantasy options in leagues with IDPs.
