The Falcons are giving Dwight Lowery the first crack at their free safety opening.
The ex-Jet and Jaguar is practicing with the first-team defense alongside SS William Moore. Lowery has a checkered injury history, but range to cover center field and plus ball skills. Signed to a one-year, $760,000 deal in April, Lowery could end up one of GM Thomas Dimitroff's shrewdest offseason moves. Jun 4 - 8:14 PM

Falcons signed FS Dwight Lowery.

Lowery, 28, started three games for the Jaguars last season before landing on I.R. with a concussion. He was then waived in November. Lowery has started 41 games the past six seasons but has missed 28 contests over the same span. The Falcons need a free safety after Thomas DeCoud's release, but we don't see Lowery being that guy. GM Thomas Dimitroff will likely draft a safety.

Jaguars waived FS Dwight Lowery (concussion) off injured reserve.

Players can be waived off IR when the team deems them healthy. Lowery will now pass through waivers and then be free to sign with any team. The six-year pro with 41 starts under his belt would be a nice depth add for needy contenders.

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery (IR, concussion) will be released once he's medically cleared.

Lowery has started 20 games over the past two seasons, including the first three of this year. But the Jags would rather just move on and roll with Josh Evans next to fellow rookie Johnathan Cyprien.

Jaguars placed FS Dwight Lowery on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Lowery went down in Week 3, and apparently wasn't close to gaining clearance. It's always troubling news when a concussion proves to be season-ending. In his sixth year out of San Jose State, Lowery was struggling before going down. Going on 28, Lowery is signed through 2015. Struggling rookie Josh Evans will hold his starting spot for the remainder of the season.

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Lowery's status is unclear for Sunday's game against the Colts. Lowery has struggled when in the lineup this season. Demetrius McCray will fill in if Lowery can't go for Week 4.

Jaguars placed FS Dwight Lowery (foot) on season-ending injured reserve.

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery (ankle) is active and starting for first time in six weeks.

Rashean Mathis (groin) is also active, though Aaron Ross draws the start at right cornerback. Jaguars inactives: RB Maurice Jones-Drew, FB Greg Jones, DL Jeris Pendleton, DT D'Anthony Smith, G/C Steve Vallos, S Chris Harris, and CB Will Middleton.
Sun, Nov 25, 2012 11:47:00 AM

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery (ankle) will return in Week 12 against the Titans.

Coach Mike Mularkey stated Friday that Lowery will "for sure" be active for the first time since Week 5. LCB Rashean Mathis (groin) is also due back. The Jaguars have a solid secondary, but their inability to generate pass rush makes the defensive backs more vulnerable than they should be. This is still an attractive Week 12 fantasy matchup for Jake Locker and Kenny Britt.

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Clearly dealing with a high ankle sprain, Lowery hasn't played since early October. Chris Prosinski started against the Packers and recorded four tackles.

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8.

Lowery has a multi-week ankle injury -- probably a high ankle sprain -- although the Jaguars haven't specified. Either way, Jacksonville will continue to be without its top coverage safety against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Mon, Oct 22, 2012 02:15:00 PM

Jaguars FS Dwight Lowery will be sidelined "several weeks" with an ankle injury.

It sounds like Lowery is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Lowery is in the midst of a quiet season, notching just 18 tackles and zero picks through five games. Second-year pro Chris Prosinski will start in his absence.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 01:41:00 PM

Jaguars signed FS Dwight Lowery to a four-year, $13.6 million contract.

Lowery reportedly talked to other teams Tuesday, but opted to re-sign with the club that acquired him from the Jets at final cuts last season. The former fourth-round pick appeared in 13 games in 2011, starting 11. He made 36 tackles and two picks, grading out above-average in coverage by Pro Football Focus. Lowery nets $4 million guaranteed in the deal.
