  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Gets core-muscle surgery

    Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday that Gifford recently underwent core-muscle surgery, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Including the postseason, Gifford played in all but one of the Cowboys' 19 games in 2022, seeing most of his playing time on special teams. It's unclear to what extent the core-muscle injury may have affected his performance, but after getting surgery, Gifford will now aim to make a full recovery by the time Dallas' offseason program begins.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Added to injury report

    Gifford (hamstring) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Gifford was limited during Dallas' practice Sunday after participating in full throughout this week. The fourth-year linebacker tallied one tackle while playing exclusively on special teams (44 snaps) over the first two games this season. However, Gifford's potential absence would leave the Cowboys shorthanded behind starting weakside linebacker Anthony Barr.

  • Cowboys' Luke Gifford: Likely out for preseason opener

    Gifford (groin) is unlikely to participate in Thursday's joint practice or Saturday's preseason opener against Denver, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Gifford has been sidelined at practices recently due to a groin injury, and it appears like his absence will continue for at least a week, though the issue isn't expected to be severe. In his absence, rookie sixth-round pick Devin Harper should garner increased opportunities against the Broncos.

    The nature of Gifford's injury isn't clear at this point, and there's no concrete timetable for his recovery. As Dallas awaits the return of the 26-year-old special-teams contributor, his absence should create an increase in opportunities for 2022 sixth-rounder Devin Harper at linebacker.
