Cowboys DL David Irving on injury report with concussion


Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving did not practice on Wednesday.

Irving was listed on the injury report with a concussion, which he must have suffered during the Cowboys’ most recent victory against the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football.

The Cowboys will be on the road Sunday against the New York Giants, but that will be 10 days after Irving suffered his concussion. Maybe the extra three days will improve his chances at not missing any game action because of the injury.

Irving missed the first four games of the season due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy. However, since he’s been back he has been one of the best defensive players in the NFL. He has totaled 7 sacks in eight games.

The Cowboys cannot afford to lose another game this season if they want to stay in the NFC playoff picture. While the Giants have only won two games this season, it is still a road game against a division rival who will have some energy with the return of quarterback Eli Manning to the starting lineup.

There is a Christmas Eve matchup looming for the Cowboys against the Seattle Seahawks who hold one of the NFC wild-card spots. Also, that is the game in which running-back Ezekiel Elliott is eligible to return from suspension.
