Cowboys Defensive Tackle Will Return For Wild Card Game

He suffered a strained pec three weeks ago in a win over the Houston Texans.

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is expected to return for the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.

Hankins return can come no sooner than the start of the playoffs, but he will be eligible to be activated to the 53-man roster for the team's first playoff game.

The return of the thirty-year-old would certainly be good news to the Cowboys' defensive front, as he has been a solid depth piece for the Cowboys' defensive line this season, recording seven total tackles over five games since being claimed off waivers from the Las Vegas Raiders.
