Reliable again in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-14

Hooker racked up 50 tackles (27 solo), three pass breakups, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 16 regular-season games with the Cowboys.

Hooker has stayed mostly healthy across three seasons with Dallas and in that span ingratiated himself as one of the key members of the team's three-man safety rotation, alongside Jayron Kearse and Donovan Wilson. He looks set for a similar role in the Cowboys' secondary for the 2024 campaign, after which the team will have a potential 'out' from the 27-year-old's contract.

Good to go Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Hooker (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Commanders.

Hooker was able to log a limited practice session Friday, and he will suit up for the Cowboys' regular-season finale. He's tallied 50 tackles (27 solo), three passes defended, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 15 games this season.

Questionable for Sunday

Hooker (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders.

The 27-year-old safety seems to be trending in the right direction to play Sunday, as he's gone from recording back-to-back DNPs to open the Cowboys' week of practice to a limited session Friday. If Hooker is unable to suit up in Week 18, Israel Mukuamu could see increased snaps as a rotational defensive back in Dallas' secondary.

Misses practice Wednesday

Hooker (ankle) did not participate at the Cowboys' practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Hooker has been dealing with an ankle injury for a few weeks, but he's played in the team's last two contests, making Wednesday's absence less concerning. The safety will look to practice in full capacity at one of the Cowboys' final two sessions of the week ahead of their regular season finale versus the Commanders on Sunday.

Logs full practice Wednesday

Hooker (ankle) practiced without restrictions Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

Hooker missed Week 15 due to an ankle injury, but he was able to return and log 73 percent of Dallas' defensive snaps Sunday in a loss to Miami. The safety was deemed a limited participant in Tuesday's practice walk-through; however, his ability to practice in full one day later suggests that he didn't suffer any setbacks versus the Dolphins. As such, Hooker should be able to take the field Saturday in a key clash against the Lions.

Limited at walk-through

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Hooker (ankle) was considered to be a limited participant at the Cowboys' walk-through Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Hooker was able to return from a one-game absence for Sunday's 22-20 loss to the Dolphins, recording four tackles (three solo) in the contest, so his status Tuesday isn't a major concern. He'll look to increase his workload at the team's final two sessions of the week prior to Saturday's matchup with the Lions.

Returns to action

Hooker (ankle) is active Sunday against the Dolphins, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Hooker was unable to play in the Cowboys' Week 15 loss to the Bills with the injury, but the veteran safety will return to play Week 16. His presence in the secondary should be a boost for Dallas against Miami's passing attack.

Could return versus Miami

Hooker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Bobby Belt of 105.3 The Fan Dallas reports.

Hooker missed the Cowboys' Week 15 loss to the Bills due to an ankle injury he sustained the week prior against the Eagles. He was able to finish off the week with back-to-back limited practice sessions to give himself a chance to play Sunday. Hooker has 46 tackles (24 solo), one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 13 games this season.

Back at practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-21

Hooker (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

The safety sat out of the Cowboys' Week 15 loss to the Bills with the injury. Juanyeh Thomas played 39 snaps in his absence and is in line to see an increased workload again if Hooker can't go this Sunday against the Dolphins.
