Dallas cornerback Kelvin Joseph has spent the offseason in a battle to earn playing time during the 2022 season. With Jourdan Lewis recovering from a hamstring injury, Joseph gained the opportunity for extra reps in practice on top of chances in preseason contests.
Joseph has had rookie cornerback DaRon Bland breathing down his neck all offseason with his success and clear confidence during the first two preseason games. Joseph started the final preseason game for Dallas and went straight to the medical tent after a collision on an incomplete pass. After a few minutes of medical attention, Joseph was escorted to the locker room.
Cowboys CB Kelvin Joseph briefly exited from medical tent while walking in straight line as though testing balance. After returning to tent for another two minutes of evaluation, he was escorted to locker room. His night could be done.

The Cowboys later announced that it’s a head injury for Joseph, whose return is uncertain.
This is another wrench in the gears for Joseph, who is trying to fend off the competition for the fourth-string cornerback spot and his status for the last game to prove it before the regular season is now in serious question.
