Highlights and more from Cowboys preseason battle vs. Raiders
Cowboys LB Hitchens to miss eight weeks with tibial plateau fracture
The Dallas Cowboys have to prepare for life without starting middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens. Fortunately for them,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey, it’ll be for eight weeks instead of the entire season.
An MRI on Sunday revealed that Hitchens sustained a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee during Saturday’s preseason game,Womens Senquez Golson Jersey, according to a source. That is an eight-week injury to overcome.
The Cowboys had feared that Hitchens tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which would have ended his season.
Even though the injury news Sunday is more positive than expected, the Cowboys still have to face the reality that one of their most reliable defensive players will miss an extended period of time.
Hitchens started every game last year and was credited with 104 tackles, 4 tackles for loss and 5 quarterback pressures. He has played in every game of his three-year career, 1.5 sacks, starting 36 of the 48.
The hope is that the linebacker corps is deep enough to absorb the blow.
“We have a great group and a deep room, if he has to miss some time,” linebacker Sean Lee said after the game. “I think we have guys who,Womens Artie Burns Jersey, we have guys who can step up.”
who signed days before training camp,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey,The Cowboys will most likely turn to veteran Justin Durant to fill the void. Durant,Womens Bud Dupree Jersey, hasn’t played in the preseason but has said he’s ready to go.
Jaylon Smith is another option,Authentic Senquez Golson Jersey, but the Cowboys aren’t going to change course in their plans to limit his workload early on. Smith and the Cowboys have been deliberate in their approach after he missed all of last season recovering from a severe knee injury.
“You don’t jeopardize a guy’s future over anything like that, Jaylon’s coming along, but as you know,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said. “The plan all along was for him to be ready to play [against] Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey,the Giants. Now are we going to throw him in there for 60-something plays? I don’t think so, but a lot of that is just going to depend on what he’s ready for. My guess is probably not.”
Smith played 12 snaps against the Indianapolis Colts last week, and 16 against the Raiders on Saturday.
He made three tackles, including one for loss.
Smith said he feels good but will remain loyal to the plan the Cowboys have laid out for him.
