The Cowboys first injury report for their game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is in. As expected, the Cowboys are without Zack Martin, David Irving and Geoff Swaim. Of the three, Martin has the only chance of going this week but the Cowboys are being cautious with their star left guard. He continues rehabbing his MCL knee injury in hopes of playing on Sunday. Irving and Swaim have a ways to go before they return.
Cowboys DL David Irving still can't run without limping so he's not close to returning to the field. Still slowed by high ankle sprain and off-the-field issues.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) December 19, 2018
Guard Xavier Su’a-Filo is recovering from his eye injury in the Colts game that caused him to miss a good portion of that contest. He can now open the damaged eye and see out of it, and he was able to participate in individual drills and was listed as limited.
Cowboys LG Xavier Su'a-Filo said he believes his left eye is going to be fine. He also believes he'll play Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. He's still wearing sunglasses for protection. By the way, those sunglasses he's kept on he borrowed from Tyron Smith at the game Sunday in Indianapolis— Brandon George (@DMN_George) December 19, 2018
Tavon Austin continues his march toward playing time, practicing again this week in hopes of playing against the Bucs on Sunday. He was limited, and Cole Beasley is also limited as he struggles with his foot injury. Sean Lee continues to be listed as limited but played int he Colts game without a setback.
C.J. Goodwin, a member of the Cowboys secondary who was brought in as a special teams guy, can start to practice again after spending time on IR. The Cowboys will have to make a decision on that.
With Cowboys beginning a 3-week practice window today for CB C.J. Goodwin to bring back from injured reserve, the seasons for C Travis Frederick, WR Terrance Williams and DL Datone Jones officially ended. Teams can bring back 2 players from IR. Dallas' 1st one was WR Noah Brown.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) December 19, 2018
