  • Cowboys' DeMarvion Overshown: Officially lands on IR

    The Cowboys placed Overshown (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Harris of the team's official site reports. The rookie third-round pick suffered a torn left ACL during a preseason game against the Seahawks, so his placement on season-ending IR comes as no surprise. His absence sets up Markquese Bell for an increased reserve role, though Dallas should be expected to make further additions to the linebacker corps.

  • Cowboys' DeMarvion Overshown: Out for season

    Overshown tore his ACL during Saturday's loss to the Seahawks, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Overshown was selected in the third round of the draft back in May and will now miss his rookie season. The 23-year-old was slated to have a significant role in the defense, but in his absence Jabril Cox and Devin Harper will take on bigger workloads. The Cowboys could also look outside the organization for additional depth at linebacker.

  • Cowboys' DeMarvion Overshown: Flashing in camp

    Overshown continues to make impact plays every day in practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. The 2023 third-round pick out of Texas could wind up seeing most of his action as a rookie on special teams if the linebackers ahead of him on the depth chart -- Leighton Vander Esch, Damone Clark and Jabril Cox -- stay healthy, but Overshown has caught the eye of head coach Mike McCarthy in camp. "He's had flash plays every day, whether it's on a punt cover [or something else]," McCarthy said Tuesday. "He's moving up the charts on special teams, which we're excited about. I know [defensive coordinator Dan] Quinn feels really good about him. I know [linebackers coach Scott] McCurley talks about his command for a young player. You talk about hit and run and shooting the gap, he pulls the trigger pretty naturally for a young guy. I've been impressed with him." Overshown may have to wait his turn to shine on defense, but Vander Esch's injury history in particular suggests the rookie will get his chance to make an IDP splash at some point during the regular season.

  • Cowboys' DeMarvion Overshown: Stays in Texas with Dallas

    The Cowboys selected Overshown in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 90th overall. Overshown (6-foot-3, 229 pounds) is a linebacker now but previously played safety at Texas until switching positions in 2020, giving him a potentially ideal mix of skills for a Dan Quinn defense. Overshown is more of a developmental project, but as he continues to bulk up, his standout athleticism could allow him to enjoy an accelerated learning curve.
