Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson has been cleared of all charges stemming from a July incident in Frisco, Texas (Twitter link via L.P. Phillips of CBS DFW). A grand jury returned two “no bills,” meaning that they have declined to indict him on a second-degree felony and a misdemeanor charge for disorderly conduct.
On July 4th, Wilson was arrested for two counts of aggravated assault with deadly weapon when he allegedly hit a woman with his truck while backing into a parking spot during an argument. The 24-year-old was facing potential jail time for what took place.
Naturally, Wilson could still face league discipline. In theory, a suspension could come down sometime this season now that the legal process on it has wrapped.
Wilson has started in two of the Cowboys’ five games thus far this year. He has just nine tackles in total and the metrics at Pro Football Focus haven’t been all that impressed with him thus far. The linebacker has a 44.3 overall score and is ranked as the No. 62 LB in the NFL out of 87 qualified players. Last year, he earned a decent 74.6 grade.
The 2-3 Cowboys are entering a bye week. They return to action on Oct. 22 to face the Niners in San Francisco.
