Moving to Washington

Armstrong is slated to sign with the Commanders on Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Armstrong will remain in the NFC East and continue playing under Dan Quinn, but he'll ultimately be changing addresses in 2024. The Kansas product has spent all six NFL seasons in Dallas and recorded a career-high 38 combined tackles last season while adding 7.5 sacks, which was second on the team to Micah Parsons in 2023.

Another productive campaign

Armstrong recorded 38 tackles (20 solo) including 7.5 sacks with a pass defended over 17 regular-season games in 2023.

The 26-year-old defensive end finished second on the Cowboys in sacks behind Micah Parsons' 14.0, taking full advantage of all the attention his All-Pro teammate received. Armstrong has emerged as a solid complementary piece in the Dallas pass rush, racking up 21.0 sacks over the last three campaigns and not missing a game over the last two, and he's set up for a big payday as a free agent this offseason.

PIcks up another sack

Armstrong recorded three tackles (two solo) and one sack in the Cowboys' Week 10 victory over the Giants.

Armstrong's sack brings his season total up to 4.5, and marks his third consecutive game leaving a dent in that category. The defensive end was on the field for 22 defensive snaps (39 percent), which is consistent with his workload from previous games. He will look to continue pressuring the quarterback in Week 11 when the Cowboys head to Carolina.

Two sacks in Week 1 win

Armstrong recorded three tackles including two sacks in Sunday's 40-0 rout of the Giants.

It was a huge night for the Dallas defense, and Armstrong tied Osa Odighizuwa for the team lead in sacks as the Cowboys' pass rush brought down Daniel Jones seven times in total. Armstrong piled up a career-high 8.5 sacks in 2022, and he could reach double digits this season as offenses scramble to try and find a way to slow down Micah Parsons, leaving plenty of holes for the Cowboys' other pass rushers.

Ready to go for Week 1

Armstrong (hamstring) did not appear on the Cowboys' injury report Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Armstrong has moved past the hamstring injury that limited him in August and appears ready to go for the season opener Sunday versus the Giants. The defensive lineman appeared in all 17 of the team's contests in 2022, recording 33 tackles, including a career-high 8.5 sacks.

Misses once again

Armstrong (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Armstrong missed time previously during camp due to a hamstring injury, although he did ultimately return to practice Monday. It's unclear if the team is choosing to limit him out of caution or if he aggravated the injury, and how much time extra time, if any, the 26-year-old may miss.

Active at practice

Armstrong (hamstring) was a full participant at Monday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Armstrong had consecutive pressures on Dak Prescott which led to incompletions. Thus, it appears he has moved past the hamstring injury that previously left him sidelined at practice. He is expected to provide depth at defensive end for the Cowboys this season.

Sits out practice

Armstrong is dealing with a hamstring injury, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Armstrong missed practice on Monday due to tightness in his hamstring, though the injury is not thought to be serious. The 2018 fourth-round pick is coming off a career year logging 33 tackles (17 solo) in 17 games while registering a new personal bests for sacks with 8.5. Once healthy, the 26-year-old will look to continue providing solid depth behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Micah Parsons during the 2023 campaign.

Emerges as pass-rush threat

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-31

Armstrong recorded 33 tackles (17 solo), including a career-high 8.5 sacks, through 17 regular-season games in 2022. He added a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

With offensive lines focusing a lot of energy on trying to slow down Micah Parsons, the Cowboys' other pass rushers found a lot of success winning 1-on-1 matchups. Armstrong was no exception, as the fifth-year defensive end came into the season with only 7.5 career sacks. He has one more year left on his current contract, and another strong campaign opposite Parsons could set Armstrong up for a big payday in 2024, assuming Dallas doesn't sign him to an extension before then.
