  • Deante Burton: Restored to practice squad

    Burton (hamstring) was restored to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday.

    Burton began the season on the practice squad injured list with a hamstring injury, but he'll now be able to return to the field. The 27-year-old appeared in just seven games across his first two seasons in Dallas.

  • Deante Burton: Lands on practice squad IR

    Burton (hamstring) was placed on Dallas' practice squad injured list Monday.

    After failing to make the initial 53-man roster, Burton was signed to Dallas' practice squad. He has since picked up a hamstring issue and will be forced to miss some time. The severity of the injury is unknown, but it certainly impacts his chances of a promotion to the active roster anytime soon.

  • Deante Burton: Done in Dallas

    The Cowboys released Burton (shoulder) on Tuesday, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports.

    Burton appeared in seven games with the Cowboys over the last two seasons, so he could be a candidate to pop back up on the practice squad. In any case, the veteran cornerback isn't a candidate to show up on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.

  • Cowboys' Deante Burton: Hits injured reserve

    The Cowboys placed Burton (shoulder) on IR on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

  • Cowboys' Deante Burton: Out against San Francisco

    Burton (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Burton plays sparingly on defense, and his services would be designated for special teams in Week 15 because Anthony Brown, Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie are all healthy. He'll aim to return next week against the Eagles.

  • Cowboys' Deante Burton: Gets the call

    The Cowboys elevated Burton to the 53-man roster from the practice squad Sunday.

    Burton will take the place of Chidobe Awuzie, who was placed on IR on Saturday with a hamstring injury. Burton saw action in three games with the Cowboys in 2019, seeing just three defensive snaps, so he'll likely assume a similar role if he suits up in Week 3.

  • Cowboys' Deante Burton: From Colts to Cowboys

    Dallas signed Burton off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Burton will fill Anthony Brown's roster spot with the Cowboys. The 25-year-old cornerback has yet to play a down in 2019, so Burton need not be considered for a fantasy roster spot at this stage of his career.
