Top Jayron Kearse News

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Officially active

    Kearse (knee) is active for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the 49ers.

    Kearse sprained his MCL during Dallas' wild-card win over Tampa Bay and was officially listed as questionable, but his status for Sunday was never really in doubt after he told reporters at the beginning of the week that he was going to play. He'll presumably operate in his usual role as the starting safety alongside Malik Hooker and will play a key role in attempting to slow down the 49ers' prolific offense.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Officially questionable

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Limited at Wednesday's walkthrough

    Kearse (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's walkthrough, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

    Kearse was diagnosed with an MCL sprain following Dallas' wild-card win over Tampa Bay on Monday Night. A similar issue caused him to miss three games during the regular season, but it appears the veteran safety isn't concerned about missing Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the 49ers. Kearse was limited during the Cowboy's walk-through practice to start prep, but he'll have two more chances to log a full session before the team needs to make a decision on his status.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Diagnosed with MCL sprain

    Kearse was diagnosed with an MCL sprain following Monday's wild-card win over Tampa Bay, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

    Kearse said after the win that he would be fine, but he suffered a similar injury in Week 1 and was sidelined for three games. However, the playoffs are in full swing now, so the veteran safety may be able to clear the issue faster than he did at the beginning of the season. Kearse's participation at practice this week should provide further clarity on his status for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the 49ers.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Injures knee Monday

    Kearse is questionable to return to Monday's wild-card game against the Buccaneers with a left knee injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kearse appeared to get his left leg rolled up on by Cowboys linebacker Anthony Barr as the two attempted to make a tackle late in the third quarter, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com. While the extent of this injury is unclear, the 28-year-old safety was not able to put weight on his injured knee while being assisted off the field, according to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News. In Kearse's absence, Israel Mukuamu has taken over at strong safety for for the time being.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Seven tackles in win

    Kearse registered seven tackles (five solo) in Thursday's 27-13 win over the Titans.

    Kearse was busy again Thursday night, as he recorded at least seven tackles for the third time in his last five games and sixth time overall on the season.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Takeaway magnet in Saturday's win

    Kearse recorded three tackles (two solo) and added an interception and a fumble recovery in Saturday's win over the Eagles.

    The Dallas defense generated four takeaways in total, and Kearse led the way with a pick on the first play of the second quarter and a recovery of a Gardner Minshew fumble late in the third, with both turnovers setting up Cowboys touchdowns. Kearse won't match the triple-digit tackles he piled up last season, but his 67 (and counting) in 2022 is the second-best total of his career, and the veteran safety remains a key part of an aggressive and opportunistic defense.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Looks poised to play Sunday

    Kearse, who appeared to suffer a left leg injury in pregame warmups, was announced as a starter in the Dallas secondary ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    After requiring assistance to the locker room less than an hour earlier, Kearse was back on the sideline ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff in full uniform and was seen walking under his own power. Per Todd Archer of ESPN.com, Kearse is okay and appears set to play Sunday, though Dallas will have Israel Mukuamu ready to go at safety if Kearse is unable to finish the contest.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Picks up apparent injury in warmups

    Kearse, who is active for Sunday's game against the Texans, suffered an apparent left leg injury in pregame warmups and required assistance from the training staff to get to the locker room, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Kearse had been on Dallas' Week 14 injury report due to a shoulder concern, but a lower-body issue looks to be the cause of his early exit during warmups. Dallas may not provide an update on Kearse's condition prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, so fantasy managers in IDP leagues looking to deploy the safety in lineups are likely best off going with another option. Israel Mukuamu is the most likely candidate to replace Kearse as a starter in the Dallas secondary.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Back on injury report

    Kearse (shoulder) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

  • Cowboys' Jayron Kearse: Seven stops Week 13

    Kearse recorded seven solo tackles and one pass defended in Sunday's 54-19 victory versus the Colts.

    Kearse played his typical share of the Cowboys' defensive snaps despite missing each practice during Week 13 prep with a shoulder injury. The 28-year-old also finished with the team's third-most tackles behind cornerback DaRon Bland (eight) and fellow safety Donovan Wilson (eight). Kearse came close to forcing his first fumble of the season by jarring the ball free from wideout Alec Pierce late in the fourth quarter, but this initial ruling of a fumble was overturned. Kearse has put up consistent stats when healthy, logging 54 tackles, two sacks and two passes defended over nine games, and he'll once again look to run roughshod over a dismal Texas offense Week 14.
