Ahmad Dixon leaves with concussion in preseason opener
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (8/8/14) Cowboys rookie defensive back Ahmad Dixon played with the first-team defense at times in his preseason debut Thursday against the Chargers, before leaving with a concussion.
Dixon saw the field with the first-team nickel defense and ended up leading the team with 11 tackles. He suffered a concussion while making one of his tackles according to ESPN.com, and will have to be cleared before he can return to action.
Dixon was a seventh-round pick out of Baylor this year, and could see plenty of playing time when the season starts, since the team has little depth in the defensive backfield.

The Cowboys DST is not a good Fantasy option heading into this season. They were bad in 2013 at No. 19 in Fantasy points, and losing DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher, who were their top two pass rushers, isn't going to help. On top of that, standout linebacker Sean Lee (ACL) is out for the season. There remains some talent on defense for the Cowboys with Brandon Carr and Barry Church, and hopefully rookie defensive end Demarcus Lawrence can help the pass rush, but a lot of work has to be done for Fantasy owners to consider using the Cowboys DST in any leagues this year. We would ignore the unit in all leagues on Draft Day. If they start off the season playing well, then you can add them off waivers as a bye-week replacement.
