Dallas Cowboys LB Likely to Return This Season

Although Leighton Vander Esch was inactive for Week 16, his injury is not expected to be season-ending. Thus, we should see him return to action before the year is over. 

With the Cowboys preparing for the playoffs, this is exactly the kind of news that they want to hear. After all, Vander Esch is a big part of their defense, so it is good that his injury does not appear to be a serious one. 

In 14 games this season, the one-time Pro Bowler has recorded 90 combined tackles to go along with 1.0 sacks.
