Hanna caught his only target for a 28-yard touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first catch of the season, after Hanna failed to even receive a target in the first three games. He's a stout blocker, but his role as a receiver will remain very limited behind Jason Witten.

Hanna (groin) returned to practice Monday, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna returned to practice Monday following a groin injury that had been bothering him for a few days. Hanna remains stuck behind teammate Jason Witten on the team's depth chart but could find himself enjoying a bigger role this season if he stays healthy.

Hanna (groin) did not practice Thursday, The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna sat out of the Hall of Fame game with a knee injury, and now he's day-to-day with a new groin injury. He's currently behind Jason Witten in the depth chart, and getting on the field for Saturday's preseason game would help him solidify that position.

Hanna (knee) isn't expected to play much Thursday, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' team website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna hasn't played a snap since the 2015 season due to two knee surgeries in that span. However, there shouldn't be much reason to worry since Dallas is resting a lot of its starters for the first preseason game. Don't expect the 28-year-old tight end to take over Jason Witten's spot, but he will be a solid No. 2 for the time being -- not enough for true fantasy relevance, though.

Hanna (knee) is limited at the opening of training camp, Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna is looking to bounce back from a pair of 2016 knee surgeries and could be a regular on the injury report the rest of the summer. Fortunately, there doesn't seem to be any concern over his availability for the start of the regular season.

Hanna (knee) is not expected to return to team activities until training camp, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna underwent a second surgery in November to repair a knee injury he sustained last summer. The team does not anticipate him participating in any organized team activities until training camp commences. Barring any setbacks, he appears to be on track to be healthy prior to the 2017 season kicking off.

Hanna's (knee) timeline for return is unclear, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna ended the 2016 season on injured reserve after requiring a second surgery in November to repair a knee injury he sustained last summer. He still has roughly two months until offseason workouts begin, but there is no indication he'll be ready to take the field by then. When healthy, Hanna could be in line to compete with Geoff Swaim for the No. 2 tight end role in 2017 with Gavin Escober set to hit free agency.

Hanna (knee) is set to undergo a second knee surgery Tuesday, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna opened training camp on the PUP list after needing knee surgery in August and will now require his second procedure in less than three months. He will miss the remainder of the season, leaving only Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar as healthy options on the Cowboys' roster.

Hanna (knee) was placed on the Cowboys' reserve/PUP list on Tuesday, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna underwent knee surgery in mid-August, but the injury he'd suffered is reportedly minor in nature when compared to other more prevalent knee injuries. He'll be restrained to the sidelines until Week 7, but has a legitimate chance at regaining the Cowboys' No. 2 tight end job before year's end.

Hanna (knee) has decided to have knee surgery and may not be ready for the start of the regular season, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hanna was expected to be the unquestioned No. 2 tight end for the Cowboys, behind Jason Witten, but now that he's facing the very real possibility of remaining on the PUP list at the start of the season, therefore missing at least six games, Gavin Escobar and Geoff Swaim could make the team to start the year. The positive for Hanna is that his knee injury is relatively minor, as far as knee injuries can go, and it still remains unlikely that he'll miss a majority of the season.
