Amobi Okoye: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Okoye (illness) feels that he'll be ready to play when he's eligible to come off the non-football-injury list after Week 6, Rowan Kavner of DallasCowboys.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

He's currently doing conditioning work and getting back to his playing weight after surviving a serious and rare brain condition that required him to be placed in a medically-induced coma. It's been almost two years since Okoye played in a game, however, so don't expect him to make any kind of immediate impact once he gets into the lineup.
Okoye (illness) could begin practicing with the Cowboys as soon as Monday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Details are finally surfacing about Okoye's illness, an extremely rare and potentially fatal autoimmune disorder that causes brain inflammation, and given what Okoye's been through over the past 17 months, it's amazing that he's even close to a return to the field. The Cowboys will understandably be very cautious with Okoye, but it's beginning to look like he will have a role on their defensive line this season.
Okoye has been placed on the non-football injury list.

Okoye signed with the Cowboys on Friday, Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Okoye was just 19 years old when he was drafted in the first round with the Texans, and will go to Dallas, where he'll reunite with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli. The 26-year-old already has six NFL seasons under his belt, racking up 177 combined tackles and 16 sacks. He did sit out all of 2013 due to an undisclosed medical issue, however. Okoye's value as an IDP will be dependent on the role he's able to carve out in Dallas.
The Bears re-signed Okoye to a one-year contract, the team's official Twitter page reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2011

The Bears are suddenly very deep at the defensive tackle position, which allowed them to take a shot on the Texans' former bust. Though defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli may have something up his sleeve for the youngster.

2010

Okoye had a bounce back season after his disappointing sophomore campaign in 2008 and enters 2010 as a starter at defensive tackle.

2009

Okoye struggled with injuries in his second season and badly missed the marks set by his impressive rookie season. Okoye is shockingly just 22 years old heading into his third year and really should become more physically-imposing for each of the next couple years. Despite his high-ceiling and promising work so far, he shouldn't be a fantasy factor as an interior lineman.

2008

Okoye had an impressive rookie campaign by totaling 5.5 sacks. The emergence of Mario Williams last season made life easier on Okoye and that should continue to be the case. The Texans also brought in Roosevelt Colvin to bolster their linebacker unit. Okoye should improve in 2008.

2007

Okoye is expected to start at defensive tackle and brings a reputation as a pass rusher from the inside. He may have some IDP potential if DE Mario Williams plays up to his reputation.
