Breaking News — Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson arrested on aggravated assault with deadly weapon charge

FRISCO — Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson has been arrested on an aggravated assault with deadly weapon charge by the Frisco Police Department according to multiple reports.

Wilson, a third-year linebacker out of Minnesota, was pegged to be a contributor for the Cowboys as questions lingered around second-year linebacker Jaylon Smith’s ability to fully recover from a torn ACL in his final collegiate game that aborted his entire rookie year.

Now, questions linger as to Wilson’s availability for Dallas as the team charter arrives in Oxnard, California for training camp on July 22.

Wilson, 24, arrested on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge

Because Wilson has been arrested on a charge such as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, he is certainly going to come under the punitive purview of Commissioner Roger Goodell. A suspension could follow, giving the Cowboys two defensive players in the penalty box to start the 2017 season as defensive end David Irving is already shelved for four games due to a performance-enhancing violation.

Wilson started 2016 training camp on the non-football injury list as he was recovering from an eye injury sustained from playing paintball. Now, Wilson will start training camp again with another distraction.

For his career, the 24-year-old has made 49 tackles, including a half-sack.
