Cowboys DE Robert Quinn broke his left hand Tuesday and will need surgery, according to multiple outlets. He's expected to return in time for the regular-season opener. We'll keep an eye on the situation.

The Bears on Tuesday agreed to a 5-year, $70 million deal with EDGE Robert Quinn, including $30 million guaranteed. Quinn rebounded to tie for 9th in the NFL with 11.5 sacks last season and tie for 16th with 22 QB hits. That followed just 24 total sacks over his previous 4 seasons, though, including 2015 and 2016 campaigns halved by injury. Quinn turns 30 in May and has proved a dynamic pass rusher when healthy. He and Khalil Mack have a chance to become the league's top pass-rushing duo over the next couple of years. His move to Chicago's 3-4 base, though, also should change Quinn's designation in most IDP leagues from DE to LB. That will hurt his fantasy value even if he continues to produce. The Bears also reportedly will release former 1st-round OLB Leonard Floyd -- who had been starting in Quinn's new spot. Dallas, meanwhile, must replace the guy who led last year's defense by 6.5 sacks.

Cowboys DE Robert Quinn suffered a rib injury at the end of the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Eagles and has been ruled out. Fortunately for him, Dallas gets a Week 8 bye. We'll see about the official diagnosis and return timeline here.

The Cowboys will miss DE Robert Quinn for the 1st 2 games because of a PED suspension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The news comes in the same week that Quinn broke his left hand, which will require surgery. On the plus side, the 2 games give him a little more time to recover from that. Assuming the suspension holds up, Quinn would return for an upside home matchup with the Dolphins in Week 3.

NFL Network reports that the Cowboys and Dolphins have worked out a trade for DE Robert Quinn. That should position Quinn as Dallas' starting right DE, opposite Demarcus Lawrence. Quinn led Miami with 6.5 sacks and 9 tackles for loss last season. Among Cowboys, only Lawrence beat either number. Settling at DE in Dallas' 4-3 front helps Quinn's IDP value and makes him a potential DL2. His arrival also helps a team D that has upgraded over the past couple of years.

Rams OLB Robert Quinn sat out team drills at minicamp this week with a cast on his right hand following minor surgery, according to multiple reports. HC Sean McVay said Quinn will be ready for training camp, and this injury could certainly prove to be no big deal. But he has lost time to knee, hip, back and shoulder injuries over the past 2 years. Quinn needs to get and stay healthy and then prove he remains 1 of the league's top pass rushers. If he does so this summer, he'll hold plenty of upside in sack-friendly IDP leagues -- despite a move from DE to OLB. If he doesn't, a potentially solid Rams D might suffer.
