Report: Former 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is going to visit the Dallas Cowboys

Report: Former 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is going to visit the Dallas Cowboys

Want another linebacker in Dallas? NoVorro Bowman is making a visit. The Dallas Cowboys have had some issues with their linebacker corps this season. Anthony Hitchens was hurt (he’s back now), Jaylon Smith had to start and has been less than great, and then Sean Lee got hurt (he should be back soon). As a result, Cowboys fans everywhere raised their eyebrows when the San Francisco 49ers released NaVorro Bowman this past Friday. The “let’s sign (recently released big name)” argument normally is a bit of a hollow one, but this one certainly has some merit. If you’re interested in...

Cowboys News: Can healthy Sean Lee and Anthony Hitchens save Cowboys' season?

Cowboys News: Can healthy Sean Lee and Anthony Hitchens save Cowboys' season?

Are Lee and Hitchens getting healthy just in time to save the season in Dallas? Sturm's mailbag: Why I've never felt worse about Cowboys' LBs - Bob Sturm, SportsDayConsidered a potential strength of the team in the preseason, the linebackers have become the clear soft spot of the defense. Q: What do you think the LB reps are going to look like with Sean Lee, Jaylon Smith and Anthony Hitchens all healthy and playing? Sturm: I think if Lee and Hitchens are healthy, those are your linebackers. It isn't as if Hitchens is amazing, but it is important that he is good enough that teams don't...

Dak and Zeke Report: They weren’t the reason the Cowboys lost to the Packers

Dak and Zeke Report: They weren’t the reason the Cowboys lost to the Packers

Both Dak and Zeke fought valiantly. It was other parts of the team that ended up costing the Cowboys a win. This was another very disappointing loss by a Cowboys team that hasn’t found its groove yet, especially on defense. Like last game, Dallas jumped out to a big first half lead that should have been bigger. At 21-6, Green Bay had the ball, but after a sack, it was second and 17 when Anthony Hitchens grabbed a Green Bay facemask on a short completion and gave Aaron Rodgers a first down. Had the team gotten a stop on third and long there, Dallas would have been in position to add to...

WATCH: David Irving notches second sack in debut game

David Irving’s presence helps everyone! David Irving notched his second sack of the game! It didn’t help that Anthony Hitchens gave it right back with a facemask. However, for this Cowboys’ pass rush, it’s a well-received presence that makes offenses think twice! Those double and triple teams for DeMarcus Lawrence should be ending any moment now. If not David Irving might have 10 sacks by Halloween.— Jeff Sullivan (@SullyBaldHead) October 8, 2017 DLaw with pressure around the edge giving Rodgers nowhere to go to avoid David Irving’s 2nd sack of the day....

Anthony Hitchens is set to make his season debut on Sunday against the Packers

Anthony Hitchens is set to make his season debut on Sunday against the Packers

Welcome to the 2017 Dallas Cowboys season, Anthony Hitchens. It was just 40 days ago that Dallas Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered what looked like a season-ending injury. Thankfully, it was only a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee (some type of “only” there). This is a similar injury to the one Dez Bryant suffered in 2016. The original prognosis suggested that Hitchens would be out eight to 10 weeks, but he will make his return one day past seven. Cowboys LB Anthony Hitchens will make his return from a right knee injury Sunday against Green Bay. Cowboys DC Rod...

Cowboys vs. Packers injury report: Sean Lee doesn’t practice, but Anthony Hitchens does

Cowboys vs. Packers injury report: Sean Lee doesn’t practice, but Anthony Hitchens does

The first injury report of the week for the Cowboys and Packers game. The Dallas Cowboys would love to have Sean Lee back for the game against the Green Bay Packers. Whether that happens or not is still up in the air. After sitting out the Los Angeles Rams game, he was unable to practice on Wednesday heading into the Sunday game with the Packers. Joining him on the sidelines was Stephen Paea, but that’s been a weekly occurrence. The potentially positive news at linebacker is that Anthony Hitchens went through a full practice today. It’s not a sure thing he will play, but there is a...

Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith returns to the scene of the crime

Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith returns to the scene of the crime

University of Phoenix Stadium holds a bad memory for Jaylon Smith, but he’s not worried. Jaylon Smith’s comeback from injury for the Dallas Cowboys has been remarkable. There were times when many doubted he would play again, or even if he did, that he could be effective. Two games into the 2017 season, Smith has laid those worries to rest. Having to play many more snaps than anticipated after Anthony Hitchens was hurt, Smith has recorded 17 tackles in two games and has one forced fumble according to official NFL stats. All the while he’s played on roughly 77% of the Cowboys defensive...
