Cowboys FS Xavier Woods will miss the next 4-6 weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain in Sunday's win over Washington, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Former Giant Darian Thompson looks like the next man up for that slot, which hasn't tended to deliver much IDP value in recent seasons.

Cowboys S Xavier Woods is active for tonight's game against the Saints. He missed Week 3 with an ankle sprain but practiced all this week, including full participation Saturday.

Cowboys starting FS Xavier Woods suffered a hamstring strain in Saturday's exhibition game against the Bengals and might miss the regular-season opener. According to The Athletic, Woods is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. Dallas' opener sits 3 weeks and 1 day from the date of his injury. The Cowboys have gone through camp extremely thin at safety, listing Woods and fellow starter Jeff Heath as each other's backups. Fortunately for them, the free-agent market still holds plenty of former starters at the position -- including George Iloka, whom Cincinnati released Sunday. ESPN's Todd Archer says the Cowboys are considering Iloka, among others. Dallas, of course, has also been linked to disgruntled Seahawks FS Earl Thomas all offseason. We'll see where this goes and when Woods makes it back to the field.
