  • Jabril Cox: Unexpected cut

    Cox was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Cox was believed to be headed for a larger role in 2023 after DeMarvion Overshown suffered an ACL tear during a preseason game. Instead, the 2021 fourth-round selection will not make the team's final 53-man roster. Garafolo notes that the LSU product is a likely candidate for the practice squad, assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Cowboys' Jabril Cox: Headed for bigger role

    Cox is expected to see more defensive snaps this season with 2023 third-round pick DeMarvion Overshown (knee) now out for the season, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' website reports.

    Overshown suffered an ACL tear in Saturday's preseason game against the Seahawks, taking a big piece out of Dallas' linebacking corps. Leighton Vander Esch and Damone Clark are expected to be the Cowboys' primary starters in the middle of the defense, but Cox and Devin Harper will now pick up the slack from Overshown's loss. Cox, a fourth-round pick out of LSU in 2021, also suffered a torn ACL in his rookie season and saw only 35 defensive snaps last year; however, if he's fully recovered, his speed, athleticism and coverage skills could allow him to make an impact.

  • Cowboys' Jabril Cox: Fully healthy again

    Cox is fully recovered from the knee injury that sidelined him for most of his rookie season in 2021, Patrik Walker of the Cowboys' official site reports. "I'm feeling great," Cox said after practice Thursday. "I think I'm there [in top form]. Game reps will definitely help because there's no better way to get ready for a game than to play in a game -- getting in game shape will be one of the main things -- but right now I'm prepared for Week 1."

    A fourth-round pick out of LSU last year, Cox saw only nine defensive snaps over seven games before suffering a torn ACL, but he was a big contributor on special teams as a rookie. The offseason addition of Anthony Barr likely keeps Cox out of a starting spot to begin this season, but his speed and coverage ability could make him a part of the package on passing downs, and neither Barr nor Leighton Vander Esch are locks to stay healthy and in the lineup.

  • Cowboys' Jabril Cox: Sitting out practice

    Cox suffered a minor knee injury in practice early this week and remained on the sideline for sessions Wednesday and Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    The team hasn't offered any details on the injury, including whether it's to the same knee on which he underwent season-ending surgery last year, but Cox is expected to return to practice Saturday. The recent Anthony Barr signing all but ensures Cox will begin the campaign as a defensive reserve and special-teams player, but his coverage skills could still allow him to see action on key passing downs.

  • Cowboys' Jabril Cox: Avoids PUP list

    Cox (knee) was not placed on the PUP list to begin training camp, The Dallas Morning News reports.

    This is a great sign for the second-year linebacker, who played seven games last year before suffering a season-ending torn ACL. Cox spent most of his time in 2021 as part of the Cowboys' special teams units, but he flashed excellent pass coverage skills in college at LSU. The 24-year-old could earn significant snaps on defense this year, potentially even pushing Leighton Vander Esch into a rotational role, if Cox proves he's fully recovered in camp.
