Back in action for OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-06-01

Farniok is participating in OTAs after recovering from a hamstring injury, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Farniok tore his hamstring during Week 7 last season and was placed on IR in late October. While the 2021 seventh-round pick was designated to return from IR in early January, he was never restored to the Cowboys' active roster before the end of the 2022 campaign. Farniok alternated first-team reps at left guard with veteran Chuma Edogo during last Friday's OTA session, as these two should compete for a starting role following the departure of guard Connor McGovern this offseason.

Designated to return from IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-04

Farniok (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

As expected, Farniok will make his return to practice this week after missing the last couple months while on IR with a hamstring issue. The team will now have a 21-day window to either activate the offensive lineman or leave him on IR for the remainder of the season. With Tyler Biadasz (ankle) unlikely to play in Week 18, it's possible that Farniok could take over at starting center for the Cowboys in their regular season finale Sunday versus the Commanders.

Set to return from IR in Week 18

Farniok (hamstring) will be designated to return from injured reserve Week 18 and is expected to begin practicing again Wednesday, Patrik Walker of the Cowboys' official site reports reports.

Farniok landed on IR after he sustained a hamstring injury Week 7 versus Detroit. Once he is officially designated to return, the second-year offensive lineman will have a 21-day window to practice before he has to be restored to the active roster. Otherwise, he'll revert back to IR for the remainder of the 2022 campaign. With starting center Tyler Biadasz dealing with a high-ankle injury sustained in Thursday's win against Tennessee, Farniok could stand to see immediate playing time as soon as Week 18.
