Injury updates: Melton, McClain, Claiborne

FRISCO, Texas -- Before the Dallas Cowboys' brass left for Miami, they updated the media on a few injured players. Team executive vice president Stephen Jones said defensive tackle Henry Melton (groin) will not play in the third preseason game on Saturday night against the Miami Dolphins. Jones said the goal is to get most, if not all of the injured players ready for the regular-season opener against the San Francisco 49ers. Middle linebacker Rolando McClain, who left Tuesday's practice with cramping and missed the next day with soreness, is expected to play against the Dolphins.

Amobi Okoye an inspiration to teammates

IRVING, Texas – Henry Melton was Amobi Okoye’s teammate for two years with the Chicago Bears. He thought they became good friends, so when Okoye stopped returning text messages last year, he was surprised. “Then someone ended up telling me and I was like, ‘What?’” Melton said. “And then soon after he was out and started texting me back, then started talking to see what was really going on and he said he was all right.

Melton (groin) needs preseason action

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Henry Melton will play at some point this preseason. The question is whether that happens this weekend in Miami or in the preseason finale against the Denver Broncos. The Cowboys believe Melton needs the work because he is coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for the final 13 games last season with the Chicago Bears. The Cowboys sat Melton for the preseason opener as a precaution, and a groin injury sidelined him for Saturday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Melton shows flashes; Garrett wants more

OXNARD, Calif. -- The Dallas Cowboys have seen glimpses of his talent during defensive tackle Henry Melton's first two full-contact practices, but he's far from Pro Bowl form. That's to be expected from a player coming off a torn ACL, which Melton suffered in September of last season with the Chicago Bears. But the coaches aren't making any excuses for Melton. In fact, head coach Jason Garrett made a point to publicly challenge Melton during Tuesday afternoon's press conference, noting that he'd been dominated by center Travis Frederick in a pass-rush drill Sunday.

Rookie Zach Martin impresses Melton

OXNARD, Calif. -- First-round pick Zack Martin had a welcome-to-the-NFL moment on the first full-speed practice rep of his NFL career. Defensive tackle Henry Melton exploded past the rookie right guard in the one-on-one pass-rush drill. In the blink of an eye, Melton got Martin to lean a little to his right, changed directions and ripped through with his hands to win the rep about as convincingly as possible. "I just had to let him know that I'm here and it's going to be a long training camp," Melton said.

Henry Melton And The Dallas Cowboys Are Betting The Farm This Year

Former Pro Bowl defensive tackle and DFW area native Henry Melton is attempting to return from a serious knee injury, and he knows that he is going to have to prove to the Cowboys and their fans that he still has what it takes to get the job done. Will he and the team hit the jackpot? When the Dallas Cowboys took the gamble to invest in Henry Melton during the off-season there was considerable risk involved. Sure there was a tremendous amount of potential that he could step right into the 3-tech role that was vacated by Jason Hatcher, but the Grapevine native and University of Texas (or...

Melton: 'I've got to prove I've still got it'

OXNARD, Calif. -- Of the 14 defensive lineman eligible to practice for the Dallas Cowboys, Henry Melton is the most accomplished. He has a Pro Bowl to his credit. He has 15.5 career sacks. He has started 32 games. He has played in two playoff games. But like most of the Cowboys' defensive linemen currently eligible to practice for the Cowboys, Melton comes with a question mark. He played in only three games last year because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
