  • Cowboys' Johnathan Hankins: Designated to return from IR

    Hankins has been sidelined on injured reserve since sustaining a strained pectoral during the Week 14 win again Houston. While Dallas still has not designated him to return to practice, McCarthy said that he's "very optimistic" the 30-year-old defensive lineman, linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (neck) and center Tyler Biadasz (ankle) will all be able to suit up against the Buccaneers on Monday, Jan. 16.

  • Cowboys' Johnathan Hankins: Should be ready for playoffs

    Hankins (pectoral) is expected to return for the wild-card round of the playoffs, Jori Epstein of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Hankins' return from IR can come no sooner than the start of the playoffs, but he will be eligible to return to the 53-man roster for the Cowboys' first playoff game. The potential return of the veteran defensive tackle would certainly be good news for the team's depth across their defensive front. For now, Quinton Bohanna and Carlos Watkins will continue to handle additional snaps.
