Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones underwent hip surgery on Wednesday, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer.

Jones, who has not missed a game in his four-year career, is hopeful to be ready for training camp.

Jones, 26, is headed into the final year of his rookie contract, with his fifth-year option set to pay him $6.26 million.

The 27th overall pick in 2015, Jones played primarily cornerback as a rookie before spending the next two years at safety.

Jones moved back to corner full time in 2018 and had a strong season, earning a Pro Bowl nod and second-team All-Pro designation.

Jones has played in all 64 games through four NFL seasons, starting each of the past 58 games (59 starts total) for the Cowboys while collecting two interceptions, 37 passes defensed and 284 tackles.
