Rolando McClain will not play

ST. LOUIS – The Dallas Cowboys will be without their leading tackler through two games in linebacker Rolando McClain because of a groin injury.

Rolando McClain: Playing Sunday is not my decision; ‘I’ll just do whatever they ask me to do’

IRVING — Rolando McClain didn’t have much to say while sitting at his locker on Friday. McClain hasn’t practiced this week because of a groin strain he suffered last Sunday in Tennessee. Although Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday …

Jerry Jones: McClain 'doubtful' for Rams

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Rolando McClain missed his third straight day of practice and owner and general manager Jerry Jones said McClain would be doubtful to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. "You’ll miss him," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "On the other hand, I think you could expect him probably not to play, but he won’t tell you that.

Rolando McClain's Injury: How Bad Does It Hurt?

No injury is a good thing in the NFL, but the timing can sometimes work out. That may have happened for the emerging star of the Dallas defense. It appears almost certain that the Dallas Cowboys will be without the services of Rolando McClain when they visit the St. Louis Rams this week. McClain is suffering from a pulled groin, as is fellow linebacker Justin Durant. (Which raises the question of what exactly the linebackers are up to with this rash of injuries to the last place most men want to be injured? But I digress.) This leaves the Cowboys having to try their third linebacker...

Jerry Jones: Doubtful that Rolando McClain plays Sunday in St. Louis

IRVING – Rolando McClain hasn’t practiced this week and it seems unlikely he will play Sunday in St. Louis. The Dallas Cowboys’ leading tackler suffered a groin injury in the second half of last Sunday’s 26-10 victory in Tennessee. McClain …

IRVING — Tony Romo was not the only significant player to miss practice Wednesday. Receiver Dez Bryant and linebacker Rolando McClain were sidelined, too. Bryant is still feeling the effects of the right shoulder injury he suffered Sunday in the …

Rolando McClain availability in question

IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo isn't the only offensive starter expected back to practice on Thursday, but the news on Rolando McClain, the Dallas Cowboys best defender for two games, is somewhat concerning. Coach Jason Garrett said he anticipates wide receiver Dez Bryant will be able to work after he was limited on Wednesday because of a shoulder injury suffered in last week's win against the Tennessee Titans. McClain, however, could need more rest because of a groin injury suffered in the Titans' win.

Jason Garrett: Rolando McClain is a very smart player, and his demeanor is contagious

IRVING — When Rolando McClain is flying around, making plays like he did Sunday, it benefits the Dallas Cowboys even more than you might think. Sure, McClain made a physical impact in Tennessee with his team-high seven tackles, quarterback sack …

Beat Writers Report: Defense shines

The Dallas Cowboys moved to 1-1 with a commanding 26-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon. After every game we review it in our Beat Writers Report. 1. After training camp there were plenty of concerns about the defense from its pass rush to secondary play. Losing Sean Lee at middle linebacker was also a major blow to a defense that ranked last in 2013. Two weeks into the season, the defense is doing just fine. In the victory over the Titans, safety Barry Church had a pick, linebacker Rolando McClain also had one, Morris Claiborne almost picked one off and corners,...
