Cowboys | Leighton Vander Esch expected for workouts (Tue Jan 14, 09:28 PM) - Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) is expected to be ready for the offseason workouts even though he underwent neck surgery Thursday, Jan. 14, according to sources.

Our View: Vander Esch originally wanted to avoid surgery but the rest he was giving his neck injury wasn't doing the trick. He recently went under the knife and the team is hopeful Vander Esch will be ready at some time in the spring. However, even if he is ready for action we think the Cowboys will play it smart and ease him back into action. The more realistic full return date should be in training camp.

Cowboys | Surgery for Leighton Vander Esch (Tue Jan 14, 05:19 PM) - Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) underwent non-evasive surgery on his neck Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Our View: Vander Esch was an All-Pro selection as a rookie in 2018 but only appeared in nine games last season. He wanted to avoid surgery but rest wasn't getting the injury healed properly. This non-evasive surgery may not knock him out of action during offseason workouts later this spring. That being said, we're sure the Cowboys will be careful while bringing back their 2018 first-round pick.
