Week 7 Outlook
Former Cowboys' defensive tackle David Irving was signed to the Las Vegas Raiders' practice squad on Tuesday, per source.
Irving has a career total of 56 tackles, 12.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in the four seasons he spent in Dallas. Irving has not played since 2018 due to previous violation of the league's substance abuse program. The Raiders need help on their defense, which is allowing over 400 yards per game to opposing teams.
David Irving collected one solo tackle, one assisted tackle, one tackle for loss, and one sack in the Dallas Cowboys' Week 7 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Irving didn't light up the stat sheet, but he did pick up a sack. Irving was close to breaking out last season but was held back by injury. Pick him up now if he's available, as he could be a monster if he picks up where he left off last year.
David Irving practiced in full on Thursday. Irving was limited in practice Wednesday without an injury designation, as Cowboys coaches try to ease him back into action following his absence related to a child custody dispute.
Irving, who recorded seven sacks last season in only eight games played, could pick up where he left off last year and have a breakout season. If he's available in your league and you have room on your roster, pick him up.
Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving recorded two tackles (one for loss), and one QB hit in Sunday's dominant 40-7 win over the Jaguars.
It was Irving's first game action since Week 13 of 2017. He started strong with a hit on Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles on his first snap. It was obvious his presence made the Cowboys defensive front that much better. Irving will look to build on this performance when the Cowboys take on the Redskins in Week 7.
Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving says he expects to be on the field for 10-to-15 snaps when he makes his season debut against the Jaguars. "That's what they say now but if it's a close game, I know good and well [defensive coordinator Rod] Marinelli is going to be sending me out there & putting me through the ringer. I'm ready for it."
Irving missed most of the off season and was excused from training camp as he tended to matters outside of football. He also sat out the first four games due to suspension and was away from the team for several days last week while dealing with a custody battle.
