David Irving‘s extended absence is apparently over.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys defensive tackle is in the building and expected to practice today.

Irving hasn’t played this year, after a four-game suspension followed by a personal leave to handle an ongoing custody case.

If Irving is on the property and has his personal issues taken care of, he could provide an immediate boost for their defense.

He had 7.0 sacks last season, showing his ability to disrupt the pocket. But until he’s available and eligible on a consistent basis, it’s hard to know what to expect from him.

  1. wow!, miracles do happen, we’ll see how long this lasts before another “incident” takes place and he is absent again for another long stretch….just cut him now that way he can take all the time he needs to clean up all these issues.

  2. Getting suspended seems part of the cowboys culture. Why does it happen so often? Because the team continues to sign guys of questionable character, thus condoning that type of behavior.

  3. They really need to change the way they evaluate players, way too many of their draft picks get suspended.
    And you would think that not winning squat for 20 some years would get them to change.

  4. Not since Leon Lett have I seen such raw, natural talent in a Cowboys lineman. It’s unfortunate that, like Leon Lett, David Irving can’t stay out of trouble. From what I hear, he’s not a bad guy, he just makes a lot of “dumb” decisions and could really use a mentor. I like most people, made quite a few dumb decisions when I was his age but they weren’t reported in the press let alone spread all over the internet. I wish hem well, he could help make an already very good defensive line even better, maybe elite.

  5. I don’t see much changing with the Cowboys until the GM, Team Dr., Communications Director, and chief goofball are replaced.

    Great, he’ll get to participate in the Cowboys 5-11 2018 season too!
    I am sure you have had a lot of experience going through 5-11 seasons with the garbage Dolphins.

  7. shows the very state of the dysfunctional franchise, he’ll practice for an hour and dress and play on sunday. the most unlikable cowboy team ever

  8. This is scary. As a single father with primary custody of my son, I am concerned about how this was handled. It takes a lot and cost a lot for father’s to win custodianship of their child and to learn that their non-custodian parent can easily pick them up from school (kidnap) with no consequences really bothers me. I question the school and also the police department. Also to know that she can do that and also in the process of trying to regain custody is crazy. Dude must be stressed and trust me its going to bother his focus on the field because I know I wouldn’t focus if I know my ex did that and now trying to take away my custody I fought for so long and the relationship I’ve build while having my child is gonna be taken away or changed.
