JAN 4 ‘NO CLUB’ Cowboys “Lion-backer” Micah Parsons suffered a severe cut to his hand, as first reported by CowboysSI.som, the crack – along with what we know was some swelling caused by Let’s play off last week’s win against the Titans with such a big roll that we all took to labeling it a “club.”

Wednesday’s injury report is out now, and Micah isn’t on the … I don’t expect the injury to limit Sunday’s Week 18 Chiefs.

“We want to go full throttle,” Parsons said. “There is no club.”

JAN 4 WASHINGTON BENCH COMMANDER WENTZ One week after quarterback Carson Wentz replaced Taylor Heinicke as the team’s starter, Washington is said to be reversing course.

Although Heinicke is expected to be the starter, the same report says rookie Sam Howell will also get playing time, making his NFL debut in the final week of the regular season.

So far, the team has not yet confirmed. .. and alas, the report is not correct.

Carson Wentz gets benched (again)

UPDATE: Howell is now getting first-team reps at the Washington gym…

Howell will be the starter on Sunday.

The 7-8-1 Chiefs would probably be wise to start testing rookie Howell, as there is little else to finish here against 12-4 Dallas, which is tied for the game and still in contention. trying to win the NFC East.

JAN 3 NFL MOVE The on-field collapse of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin rocked the sports world Monday night, as the 24-year-old suffered a heart attack during the first quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paycor Stadium.

The Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles (home vs. Giants) and San Francisco 49ers (home vs. Cardinals) will all play their games at the same 3:25 slot … so neither team will benefit from knowledge of its matchup schedule. – the qualifiers.

Here’s a breakdown of the conditions in Dallas, along with the possibility of the Cowboys opening the playoffs against Tampa Bay.

Also, Sunday Night Football will be between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on NBC.

JAN 2 WELCOME! “It might be a little premature and it might be a little optimistic, but the Dallas Cowboys have an injury plan for the playoffs.

“We’re welcoming back three really good football players,” COO Stephen Jones said Monday on 105.3 Visiting Supporters, looking at the postseason. “Leighton Vander Esch, certainly (Johnathan) Hankins, and then if “Let’s get (Tyler) Biadasz back…that would be a big advantage for our team.”

Linebacker Vander Esch (neck/shoulder) will sit out this week in Washington. Veteran run-stopper Hankins has a pec injury. And starting center Biadasz has a high ankle sprain, with the Cowboys crossing their fingers as they shuffle the O-line another week.

Jones said of Biadasz: “I think after we get a full week and see how he responds to treatment … We’ll see what the week brings, but we definitely feel like it’s a possibility.” (the medical staff) can get him ready to play in the first round of the playoffs.”

DEC 28 ME TOO! Dez Bryant has moved on from football to become a family man and businessman, and has not played in the NFL since 2020.

But he sure has some fun with the idea of ​​a “retired” Dallas Cowboys great trying to make a comeback.

According to a CowboysSI.com scoop, Hall of Famer Terrell Owens, 49, called Jerry Jones’ office, asking for a tryout.

“If T.O comes back…sign me to a playoff team…seriously! LFG,” Bryant tweeted.

Bryant, 34, was a Pro Bowl force with 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys. Like Owens, he’s keeping himself in good shape, and … Well, those are fun ideas … but not Cowboys ideas, if you get what we mean.

DEC 26 WHITE Because we know you care…

We can report that this is the week you see a “new” look with the iconic Cowboys uniform, the white “Color Rush” based uniform.

This will all be on display this Week 17 matchup with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.

Salt is a secret. But the mask must pop!

DEC 24 XI AND PLAY This week, Cowboys leader Jayron Kearse has literally urged his dressing room to suit up and play.

Said Kearse ahead of the Eagles’ visit on Saturday: “We’ve talked a lot. At this point, we don’t need to talk anymore. It should be about business. We have to do something about it. The film should speak. I really don’t think there’s much talk that needs to be done other than getting the job done. “

So far, Kearse is living up to that, with two catches largely responsible for keeping Dallas in this game. His second…

It led to TD Michael Gallup, another guy who we play – or in this case, toes – speaks for him.

Dallas is tied at 27-all with the Eagles going into fourth place here at AT&T Stadium.

DEC 21 Cowboys and Eagles injury reports are on Wednesday. With Micah Parsons and Jalen getting hurt again with DNP highlights.

No matter who plays Saturday, the Cowboys vow to be ready.

“I think everybody in the locker room is looking forward to this rematch,” Dak Prescott said, adding, “Understanding that (the Eagles) are playing their tails off, having a hell of a season. …

“You just want to get another shot, make sure you put your best foot forward.”

DEC 21 MICAH OUT AGAIN Micah Parsons will appear on Wednesday’s practice/injury report as he did on Tuesday, with “Lions” listed as DNP (ill).

“Micah Parsons won’t be with us today… It’s ongoing,” coach Mike McCarthy said of the bug.

The Cowboys host the Eagles on Christmas Eve.

DEC 20 Malik Jefferson, waived from the Cowboys’ practice squad last week, has been re-signed to the practice squad, the team says.

Jefferson, a 26-year-old former Texas Longhorn, could provide depth in the lineup after the short-term injury to Leighton Vander Esch.

DEC 20 DALLAS IN DALLAS The Eagles announced Tuesday that Dallas Goedert has been placed on IR. It’s just time for him to face his hated namesake, the Dallas Cowboys.

Goedert has been out since Week 10 because of a shoulder injury, but he returned for the 13-1 Eagles with 544 yards and three touchdowns on 43 catches and a career-high nine games among receivers. AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Philly will likely be without QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for Saturday’s 10-4 loss to Dallas.

DEC 18 KELVIN BENCHED The Cowboys suddenly have defensive problems.

For one, they were pulling starting cornerback Kelvin Joseph after he gave up two consecutive touchdowns allowed. … then Nahshon Wright entered the game.

Meanwhile, safety Donovan Wilson is injured, as is Leighton Vander Esch.

Wrap it up? Dallas went up 27-10, but Trevor Lawrence, taking advantage of some of Dak Prescott’s sloppiness, threw three TD passes…

DEC 18 LVE HURT Cowboys tight end Leighton Vander Esch was escorted to the Jacksonville locker room and has now been ruled out for any chance of returning to the Jags game.

With speculation about a possible concussion, the Cowboys are calling it a neck injury.

Micah Parsons has a sack, Ezekiel Elliott has a TD after a touchdown, and the Cowboys go up 21-10 in the third with the win clinching a playoff spot.

DEC 18 Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees, 73, was ejected from the New Orleans field during pregame warmups today after a Saints player accidentally bumped into him.

The Falcons said Pees – who remained on the ground for some time after the collision – was “alert and responsive” as he was taken to a local hospital for a medical examination.

DEC 14 ‘STANDING’ Jerry Jones wants.

The Cowboys owner was asked by the DFW media Wednesday afternoon about the ideal timetable for signing Odell Beckham Jr.

“Soon,” he said.

“I don’t want to talk about that but stand up,” Jones said. But stand by it. Stand by each other.”

Jones, even as the Cowboys just signed another vet wideout T.Y. Hilton, was asked Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan if the fact OBJ can’t play today” (due to his alleged “time bomb” knee) rules out a deal.

“It’s not going to go very far if you add in the playoffs,” Jones said. “We wouldn’t be interested in Odell if he didn’t have the talent. I think it’s fair to say he’s a great receiver. . . . It’s just like you know, he’s not ready to play. He’s a receiver that I think will fit in at some point. Every. There will be interest in Odell.”

Also important (click above): The parties discussed contract parameters on Monday.

DEC 14 TWO KEY MOVES Cowboys placed Johnathan Hankins (pec strain) and Terence Steele (torn ACL and MCL) on injured reserve.

Steele is out while Hankins is optimistic about a chance to be activated during the playoffs.

DEC 14 Sick? Odell Beckham Jr. is a “free agent”… spring 2023.

The Dallas Cowboys are still considering signing OBJ now, hoping he can contribute in the NFL Playoffs — and perhaps with a contract that will secure his services for years to come as well, especially as a “time bomb” knee. went well.

Indeed, it appears that the Cowboys camp and Beckham spoke on Monday about the contract limits in Dallas. playing anywhere this season becomes less.

But ESPN has now reported that “several” NFL teams believe the 30-year-old receiver is now likely to wait until the offseason to make his deal.

“Folks whose teams have done Beckham’s homework expect him to wait because, as one put it, ‘he’s going to be the prize’ in the free agent receiver class,” ESPN wrote. “Beckham is not expected to be ready to play football until the playoffs. Joining a new team and offense in the playoffs comes with the risk of injury.”

The Cowboys know all this and have bolstered the receiving corps by signing veteran T.Y. Hilton.

Could there be a team award for throwing three-time Pro Bowler OBJ on the field in the playoffs? It may be that. But OBJ’s financial reward may only come when he proves his knee is healthy … making the “reward” next March.

DEC 13 BEAS TO BILLIONS Could the Buffalo Bills be in the process of making another receiver meeting? Several liked tweets that were reportedly spotted at the airport have fueled Internet rumors about former Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley returning to Orchard Park.

And now it’s on, NFL Network reporting that Beasley has signed with Buffalo.

WIVB-TV reported on Twitter Monday night that Beasley had returned to Buffalo, with their reporter citing a tweet Beasley liked, which claimed that Beasley had flown from Baltimore to Buffalo.

Beasley, 33, and son of Elm, entered the NFL at SMU with the Cowboys before moving on to Buffalo. He retired from the NFL after just two games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in early October.

In three seasons for the Bills (2019-21), often referred to as “Beas”, he recorded 2,348 yards and 11 touchdowns on 231 carries, becoming one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.

DEC 12 MONDAY HEALTH In addition to offensive tackle Terence Steele being out for the year with a groin injury, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is dealing with a tight end in Sunday’s win over the Texans that coach Mike McCarthy suggests. that it is “important”.

The Cowboys believe defensive end Dorance Armstrong, who wore a protective cleat after Sunday’s game, could play through a sore ankle this week at Jacksonville.

Steele’s loss is a big one, and with the Cowboys now planning to shuffle the O-line, perhaps the young duo of Josh Ball and the not-so-young Jason Peters will rotate in at right tackle.

McCarthy of Steele said: “Stone man.”

DEC 11 INJURY ISSUES The Dallas Cowboys posted a last-minute 27-23 win over the Texans on Sunday, but suffered some losses along the way.

Most troubling: starting right tackle Terence Steele left the game with a knee injury that the Cowboys said they were “very concerned about,” pending an MRI.

Also, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins suffered a shoulder injury and tight end Jake Ferguson suffered a head/neck injury.

Steele’s injury is the most troubling, with the Cowboys initially replacing rookie Josh Ball but then turning to vet Jason Peters at right tackle.

Next week in Jacksonville, Peters could be the right tackle with Tyron Smith returning to claim the left tackle job.

Also, Trevon Diggs was out briefly with a toe injury – and now says he’s playing through injuries to both toes. Dorance Armstrong is wearing a protective boot after spraining his ankle.

DEC 11 COWBOYS HOT OPEN The combination of the Texans’ bullying offensive line and Tony Pollard’s skills to match the Cowboys’ exciting playmaking style resulted in Dallas getting off to a fast start against the Texans.

Pollard scored from 11 yards out to cap a nine-play, 76-yard TD drive in Week 14 here at AT&T Stadium.

DEC 10 FINES Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott each fined $13,261 for TD celebration using Salvation Army Red Kettle against Colts.

Money well spent, Cowboys Nation will surely agree. Right. Zeke?

“It’s worth the awareness we bring to Army Safety,” he said.

DEC 9 WHAT IS PUNISHMENT? Sean McVay is a sharp man. But even the coach of the Los Angeles Rams could not fully understand what he would now oversee.

The coach seemed confused by the result, a 17-16 win over Las Vegas on Thursday night that featured all sorts, capped by Ram-for-a-day (or so) QB Baker Mayfield’s performance. length-of-the-field TD drive with 1:45 to play.

“The way we drew it,” McVay said, adding, “I’m still kind of like, ‘What the hell is going on?'”

“I don’t know if you can write anything better than that,” said Mayfield, who was waived by Carolina a few days ago and then inserted into the “Thursday Night” game (with Matthew Stafford injured) for just a few plays. that. “It’s a very bad and good story, I’ll be honest with you.”

Here’s what was going on… stay tuned!

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks – a trade target for the Cowboys before the end of the year – has a calf injury and is expected to miss his second straight game. … on a Sunday afternoon in Dallas.

And … it goes to forward Nico Collins who missed the game as well with a foot injury.

Houston is 1-10-1 and is already short-handed at 9-3 Dallas.

DEC 7 VON OUT FOR THE YEAR Buffalo Bills star tight end Von Miller, who had hoped to return to action in the coming weeks, instead underwent surgery for a torn ACL and is now out for the season.

It was announced Wednesday at team headquarters by head coach Sean McDermott.

Miller, a DFW native and Cowboys target in the offseason before signing with Buffalo, has a long-term contract with the Bills … and is sure to stay in the news for a while as he’s a key player. Buffalo’s recruiting of injured receivers. Odell Beckham Jr., along with the rival Dallas Cowboys.

DEC 5 TEXAS RIVALRY?! No, Week 14 is not pitting two of the “rivals” with the Houston Texans playing the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Cities “love to hate” each other. But the teams and their fans? Cowboys Nation doesn’t care much about the Texans … and neither do Texans fans now.

The Texans only lost to the Cleveland Browns, 27-14, and even the controversial Deshaun Watson return to Houston did not concern the audience.

The Texans have a 1-10-1 record.

The Cowboys – coming off a 54-19 win over Indy – play on Sunday Night Football looking to improve their record to 9-3 and keep pace with the Eagles. Dallas has won two straight and four of its last five, and some tipsters have the Cowboys as 17-point favorites in this one.

The Cowboys have now made a habit of scoring 30-plus points. The Texans haven’t topped 17 points in their last six games. So… place your bets!

DEC 4 JIMMY G CARTED OFF The 49ers said QB Jimmy Garoppolo is questionable to return to the Dolphins game due to injury. Brock Purdy is now at QB. And yes…

This is a power-balancing shift in the NFC … teams like the Seahawks in the West and teams like the Dallas Cowboys across the board.

UPDATE: After San Francisco’s 33-17 win, coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will need season-ending foot surgery.

DEC 4 SECOND NEW LOOK The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will unveil a new look on Sunday night for their iconic red, white and blue accented cleats as part of the team’s “Salute to Service” weekend … Read more here as Dallas is set to take on Indianapolis here at AT&T Stadium.

But besides that, Christmas is coming, and the Cowboys are scheduled to host the Eagles on Christmas Eve.​​​​

So the Cowboys Cheerleaders need to dress up, and dress up, as they show off their special holiday outfits.

DEC 3: DEION’S DECISION Deion Sanders has officially announced that he will be Colorado’s next head coach.

Sanders went 27-5 in three seasons at Jackson St. and has landed some of the nation’s top recruits.

The announcement came shortly after Sanders led Jackson State to its second straight SWAC championship.

Jackson State defeated South 43-24 in the title game, capping its first undefeated season.

“There were a number of high-profile candidates interested in becoming the next head football coach at Colorado, but none of them had the stature, knowledge, and ability to connect with student-athletes like Deion Sanders,” Director sports in Colorado. Rick George said in a statement. “Not only will Coach Prime energize our fans, we are confident he will restore our program to national prominence by leading a team of high caliber and high character.”

Sanders, 55, played 14 seasons in the NFL, five of them with the Cowboys. During his time in Dallas, he collected 159 tackles, 14 interceptions, and two touchdowns. Sanders was a member of the Cowboys’ 1995 championship team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX. He was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

He has already started recruiting staff and players for Colorado.

DEC 2 ANTONIO BROWN PROBLEM Antonio Brown occasionally brings up the idea of ​​returning to the NFL, sometimes suggesting the Dallas Cowboys as an employer.

That’s not happening. Instead, Brown has real life issues as he is once again facing legal action after a recent alleged domestic incident that resulted in an arrest warrant being issued for the former NFL tight end.

Brown, 34, is reportedly wanted by police on a battery charge stemming from an incident last week involving the mother of four of Brown’s six children at his south Tampa home.

Thursday night, NBC News reported that Tampa police were still trying to arrest Brown after multiple attempts outside his home. The department told NBC that Brown “did not speak to police officers.”

Tampa’s WFTS-TV reported that officers were at Brown’s home for more than an hour, and used a pay phone to call from his front door. A statement from Tampa police shows that Brown and a woman were involved in a verbal altercation earlier this week, with Brown allegedly saying “if she goes into the house, he’s going to shoot her in front of the police,” according to court documents.

DEC 1 BYE, OBJ It was already known that the Los Angeles Rams are not in the game when it comes to re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. But now there is physical evidence…

The Associated Press has revealed that the team’s former HQ box used, and stored, for free agent wide receivers… no longer exists.

“The post that has had Odell Beckham Jr.’s name on the Rams’ practice bench since last season is empty again,” Beacham said. “Now they are not saving the OBJ point.”

OBJ is, as of today, taking a tour with a Thursday visit with the Giants, a Friday visit with the Bills and a Monday visit with the Cowboys on tap.

NOV 29 Now, OBJ! Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan makes the team’s pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. an urgent matter.

“This year should be a big one,” Jones said. “We have six regular season games and the playoffs, so in my mind, we have almost the whole show ahead of us. We’ve got a situation where he can really contribute now.”

Now, let’s make sure we interpret this correctly: Part of what Jones seems to be saying is that Dallas “needs” a healthy OBJ.

But what if those questions are answered next Monday when Beckham is scheduled to visit The Star?

Jones also pointed out that OBJ’s plane crash had no effect on the team’s “coming full steam ahead” (in the words of coach Mike McCarthy) interest in the star receiver.

“Very true,” Jones said in describing his phone call with Beckham. “Very competitive. He feels confident. A good feeling about himself. We think he can fit in well with us.”

Jones also said of the airport incident, “His judgment, his behavior is not about him. It’s about a lot of people. It’s not about him.”

So … if he passes health and other obstacles (money, other contractors) are dealt with?

“We have to have it this year,” Jones said. “It’s very important. This year should be a big part of it.”

NOV 28 OBJ shortstop Odell Beckham Jr., earlier Sunday, tweeted about a noteworthy experience without saying specifically,

“Comedy hour,” he said about … something.

Maybe this rumor / VIDEO is what he’s talking about… Did the police remove OBJ from the plane?

Dallas Cowboys, one of the opinion of the free star, has repeatedly insisted that the reputation of the “diva” of OBJ is baseless.

We’ll see what the airport police say about that… which is…

So, the flight attendant thought he was sick because they couldn’t get him to fasten his seat belt. When asked, he refused to leave the plane. … until the police arrive

Oh, and by the way, no, according to the passenger in the video, this incident did not happen at DFW airport, as some people have speculated. The passengers were said to have been on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles.

NOV 25 OBJ BACK MEETING  The Dallas Cowboys worked their way into the headlines regarding the acquisition of free agent Odell Beckham Jr. through his planned visit to them. Oh, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that he had a “nice visit” with OBJ on the phone over Thanksgiving.

But there are still many teams on Beckham’s list and he is ready to start his visits as a free agent. … And yes, the Cowboys have company.

That’s the word from Josina Anderson of CBS Sports, who reported Friday that Beckham has stepped up plans to visit three suitors … and to do so …

It is our understanding that the visit to Dallas is scheduled for Monday, December 5. So the Giants and Bills sessions will figure to be right around the corner.

Anderson also said that Beckham, who is recovering from a knee injury, is also in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens. It is also believed that the San Francisco 49ers can compete for the services of the two-time All-Pro receiver, who is looking for a long-term “home” (and a contract), with speculation that he may be asked. $20 million APY.

The Bills’ recruitment of OBJ was opened by Von Miller, his Rams Super Bowl teammate, with Miller currently in the news dealing with a knee injury suffered in the Thanksgiving victory over Detroit.


Both the Cowboys and Giants are set to host a visit from Odell Beckham Jr., but we already knew that. Now comes the ballpark development: Beckham will visit with the Cowboys on Monday, December 5, according to Jay Glazer.

The Giants haven’t made a date yet, it seems, but they’re on Beckham’s wish list. The Bills, Niners and Chiefs might be here too … although those organizations weren’t as vocal about it as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his company were.

Beckham is believed to be healthy after recovering from a knee injury and is reportedly looking for a long-term deal around $20 million APY, all as part of his search for, as he put it, “a home.”

And DFW? The housing search continues on December 5.

NOV 23 TP WINS AWARD This is indisputable: Tony Pollard has become the most feared weapon in the Cowboys offense, and this week he was recognized. He was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his impressive performance in Dallas’ 40-3 victory over Minnesota.

TP numbers? He had a career-high 189 yards from scrimmage (109 receiving, 80 rushing) and two TDs on Sunday.

Our PFF colleague, Marcus Mosher, wrote: “Tony Pollard’s breakout season is upon us. That has suddenly turned Dallas into one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL, one that feeds off arguably the best player in the league.” now.”

In their last four games, the Cowboys have scored 141 points per game and averaged 412.8 yards of offense. That’s better than where they were a year ago when they were the NFL’s No. 1-final.

That has something to do with Dak Prescott’s return, of course. But as the Cowboys prepare to host the Giants on Thanksgiving in a battle of two 7-3 NFC East teams? Yes, it has a lot to say about Tony Pollard too.

NOV 22 Brady trouble for Texas? The Texas State Securities Commission has reportedly advanced its investigation into the cryptocurrency FTX’s operations and operations so far to include the activities of celebrities such as NFL’s Tom Brady and NBA’s Stephen Curry.

Bloomberg News first reported the latest investigation, which looks into possible breaches of securities laws.

“Anyone providing investment advice in Texas is generally required to be registered and generally must truthfully state all known facts,” said the Texas State Securities Commission via the Texas Tribune. “In Texas, there is no different system of justice or law for the elite.”

This coincides with the release of news of a class-action lawsuit filed that names Curry and Brady and other celebrities that they allege, among others, “coerced, promoted, aided and abetted.” , actively participated” in the alleged scheme where they “aggressively marketed” FTX — which the filing described as “truly a house of cards” and a “Ponzi scheme.”

NOV 21 RUSSELL WILSON ANOTHER HERSCHEL After all the dust has settled and after all the onion skins have been peeled off, the NFL world has reached a universal consensus: There will never be another trade like the Herschel Walker deal, which cleverly created the Cowboys that became the foundation of the three-time Super Bowl champ.

Has it “never” happened in Seattle?

The 1989 walk-on trade — considered the biggest heist in football history — netted the Cowboys the Vikings several high-profile picks for the star running back. Drafted players selected from Minnesota: Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Darren Woodson and Kevin Smith.

And now? The Denver Broncos, like those Vikings, thought they were “one star away.” The Seahawks had to, landing quarterback Russell Wilson for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and three veteran players.

How is that looking for the Broncos? Wilson, as our guy (and veteran Seahawks watcher) Corbin K. Smith writes, “is playing his worst football of his career in the Mile High City, as he completed less than 60 percent of his passes and threw seven touchdown passes. is 10 starts as Denver slumps to a disappointing 3-7 record and currently sits in last place in the AFC West.”

And how is Seattle doing in re-reading Geno Smith at QB? He is, Smith writes, “an MVP candidate on a 6-4, NFC West-leading team.”

And that’s not even counting all the men and all the options and … Well, watch Corbin take a deep look at how the “Herschel Heist” will never happen again … except maybe it just will. did.

NOV 20 TP NO. 1? Tony Pollard matters. Ezekiel Elliott matters. And as Dallas prepares for today’s Cowboys vs. Vikings showdown, there’s the as-always insistence that both running backs are important, never mind the idea of ​​”How Zeke’s going.” , so go Cowboys.”

But the NFL website is suggesting a new wrinkle for Week 11, the idea that Zeke — “light years ahead” of where he was after missing two games with a knee injury — will “ease back” into the lineup, with Pollard “To get more touches,” it seems, according to Elliott who took a knee.

Our flexible suggestion: The script, at least as far as any pre-game ideas, will be the determining factor of who does what.

NOV 18 INJURY ISSUES Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that DeMarcus Lawrence (foot, knee) will be limited at work today here at The Star.

But, he added, “I’m all about him playing” in Sunday’s game against the Vikings.

Lawrence, who has a history of playing through serious injuries, is certainly ready to do it again.

“The right knee is worse than the foot,” he said. “I’m dealing with a lot right now. Just try to focus on the task at hand.”

But… are you playing on Sunday?

Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Anthony Barr are also on track to return to action this weekend.

McCarthy on Zeke: “I think he’s going.”

McCarthy on Barr: “He’s desperate to play on Sunday.”

NOV 17 NEW MAN ON THE JOB The Cowboys added two “name” players via the practice squad, and on Thursday the new men – defensive end Takk McKinley and receiver Antonio Callaway – took the field here at The Star.

Callaway, the Browns’ former starter, is wearing No. 14.

Takk, the Falcons’ first-round pick, is No. 59.

NOV 16 Chicago Wants Taco The Chicago Bears signed Taco Charlton to the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints.

The former Cowboy, a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by Dallas, played two seasons before being cut. Charlton’s time with the Cowboys was disappointing, as he collected four sacks in 27 games.

His new deal with the Bears now reunites him with current coach Matt Eberflus, the former linebackers coach for the Cowboys when Charlton was drafted.

NOV 16 TAKK in the Dallas Cowboys made another move. The Cowboys signed defensive end Takk McKinley to the practice squad after hosting him during summer camp.

McKinley is a former first round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft taken by the Atlanta Falcons under then manager Dan Quinn. McKinley played four seasons in Atlanta before playing his last two with the Browns and Rams.

The move comes after Tuesday’s signing of another “name” player looking for a rebound as former Browns tight end Antonio Callaway joined the team via the practice squad.

NOV 15 CENTER TRYOUTS The Cowboys have moved UDFA center Alex Lindstrom (practice) to IR and now need help there, a source told CowboysSI.com, with three prospects currently receiving internal tryouts here. The Star.

Beau Benzschawel played for Wisconsin and went undrafted in 2019.

Brock Hoffman is a rookie UDFA from Virginia Tech.

Michal Menet was drafted by Arizona in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Penn State.

Dallas’ starting center remains Tyler Biadasz, and Lindstrom has been working as a backup.

NOV 15 ROCK-BOTTOM RAMS The Los Angeles Rams will be without their top weapon for at least four weeks after placing star wide receiver Cooper Kupp on injured reserve, Rams Sean McVay announced.

Kupp was injured during the Rams’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday with an ankle injury suffered late in the game.

Kupp will be out at least four weeks and will undergo major surgery to repair the injury. Recovery from band-aid surgery is typically five to six weeks, according to reports.

McVay didn’t rule out Kupp for the season.

Kupp is the Rams’ all-time leader in receiving stats, and currently sits second in the NFL in receptions (75), fifth in targets (98), fifth in yards (812) and fifth in touchdowns (6).

Read more about “The Lowdown” as they slip out of NFC contention that the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys are trying to maintain here.

NOV 13 Dallas TIED 7-ALL Cowboys at Packers was mostly about Dallas’ ability to get close to the goal line… but it was also about scoring once in the first quarter-and-a-half.

CeeDee Lamb caught a TD from QB Dak Prescott as the receiver was coming out of the backfield…but on a Dallas turnover to make it 14-0, Prescott threw it in the end zone.

With 4:54 left in the first half at Lambeau Field, Aaron Rodgers answered with a deep TD pass to rookie Christian Watson for a 7-all score.

NOV 12 COWBOYS AND TILLERS? The Los Angeles Chargers are giving up former first-round defensive tackle Jerry Tillery — and the Dallas Cowboys, who are always looking to shore up a good defense (despite run-stopping challenges as they prepare Sunday for Green Bay) would love a piece. of action.

But there is a problem – a problem with being too good.

The 6-6, 295-pound Tillery has been a disappointment to the Chargers coaching staff this year as he recorded just eight tackles before being waived on Friday. So the first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will get a fresh start somewhere…

But the way the waiver order works, the worst teams get the first claims. Dallas — with its 6-2 record — is heading toward the bottom of the league with a shot at him.

That process could begin at the beginning of next week, and teams like the one-win Texans seem like the most likely winners here.

Taken 28th overall in 2019, Tillery, 26, is in his fourth season with the Chargers after starting 29 of 54 games played, with 106 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

NOV 1 RIDLEY SUSPENDED The amazing story of Calvin Ridley keeps getting even more amazing.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, in desperate need of a difference-maker, were about a year ago to explore the idea of ​​a trade for the Atlanta Falcons who were unhappy with wide receiver Calvin Ridley.

But a few problems got in the way.

First, the talented receiver left Atlanta citing mental health reasons; he seemed to be thinking about retirement.

Then, the Falcons engineered a trade for him to the Eagles — but voluntarily opted out of the deal because the Falcons knew Ridley was about to receive a one-year suspension for betting on NFL games.

The Falcons did that out of goodwill. And now they do something else: They were traded to the long-interested Jags in what NFL Network described as a “complex deal” that could eventually produce Atlanta’s second and fifth round picks.

NOV 1 WR DEAL  File this in the “Do Something” category for moves that don’t make a lot of sense – or, at least, wouldn’t make sense in Dallas.

The Bears just traded a second-round pick for receiver Chase Claypool, who has mediocre production (including just one TD this year and zero catches on two targets for the Steelers last week) but who has been on the one on Dallas’ radar…

But no. Not a second round pick. Which may end up being more valuable for Dallas to consider in negotiations with Brandin Cooks, who is more likely than Claypool.

NOV 1 CHUBB TO MIAMI Bradley Chubb has been traded out of the AFC East as the Dolphins once again enter the arms race with the Buffalo Bills. Full story here.

NOV 1 TJ TO MINNY TJ Hockenson is about to see more of the Cowboys. His Lions just played in Dallas… and now, later this month, his Vikings – since the tight end was traded there – will see the Cowboys again. Full story here.

NOV 1 DE EXPENDITURE The Cowboys continue to be tied up in fast-paced trade rumors (see Bradley Chubb) … we don’t fully see the logic.

But if it happens, it is instructive to know the price.

We know because the Los Angeles Rams offer Panthers corner Brian Burns is, through. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, featuring two first-round picks.

It seems likely that the Panthers rejected the Rams’ offer in the first two rounds because they will come in 2024 and 2025; That’s all for the Rams.

But it can also show how much Carolina really doesn’t want to lose their magazine art.

And it might suggest how unlikely Dallas is going down this path.

NOV 1 JOKER Kareem Hunt just entered Cleveland’s 32-13 win over Cincinnati on “Monday Football” and it was Halloween. So it made perfect sense for him to celebrate in his own way.

“I mean, I’m down for everything, man,” Hunt said, per NFL.com. “I’m a football player and this is a business, so I’m ready to do whatever they decide for me.”

“That’s somewhere else or here, whatever that doesn’t matter. I love the game of football,” said Hunt, who also likes to be the “Joker” for Halloween, according to his interview after the game. A “Batman” related mask.

OCT 31 In the hunt for the NFC East? The Philadelphia Eagles, according to a number of rumors, are interested in Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt. It is suggested that the Browns will move the former NFL champion’s rushing and backup running back with a possible fourth-round pick, and that Hunt will serve as Philly’s backup to Miles Sanders.

NFL expert Jay Glazer noted that he could see the Eagles trade a running back, which adds credence — if not improbability — to the rumor. Presumably part of the reason Hunt is unhappy in Cleveland is that he is Nick Chubb’s starter

Say this about Philly, though: 7-0, the roster they built is the product of a lot of right moves.

OCT 31 ROQUAN LEAVES ROQUAN The Chicago Bears were handed an embarrassing 49-29 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

And now Smith is being traded to the Baltimore Ravens. …and in doing so jumps from 3-5 in the NFC to 5-3 in the AFC.

The Bears are reportedly getting a second-rounder and a fifth-rounder as the Ravens will work on a long-term extension of their young talent.

OCT 31 BRANDIN COOKS COMMUNICATION In two recent conversations with Texans sources, the organization continues to play down the idea of ​​trading receiver Brandin Cooks.

And there are legitimate reasons for him to move, such as 1) I believe Houston will ask for a second-round pick in exchange and 2) he has $18 million in value that is tied to 2023.

But will it help Dallas or another contender? Undoubtedly, the “top-off” vet wins in Houston (in seven months this year the 29-year-old has 32 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown) despite the shaky QB game.

He is a perennial 1,000-yarder, and his name has just appeared in two media outlets, Dallas and New York. Are the Cowboys really interested in paying what it takes here?

OCT 31 STEPHEN JONES OBJ? Despite the “itchiness” and “risk-taking” mentality of Jerry Jones, COO Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are “comfortable” when they’re out there.

But then Stephen added: “Then there are men who don’t belong to everyone out there.”

Stephen’s quote, and our list of “those”, is here.

OCT 31 LAST DANCE DEALS? The Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the NFL face Tuesday afternoon’s trade …

Writes Fish: “Jerry Jones has the ‘itch.’

“The 32 years that we’ve chronicled Jones’ tenure in Dallas come with no guarantees about what the Cowboys will do between now and Tuesday’s deadline. The “who”? The “what”? The wide open reception.” ?

“That game cannot be played alone; Jerry – and Stephen Jones and Will McClay, who are directly involved – need willing partners.

“But I can say this, after a few games, after several media meetings and then a celebratory elevator ride up to Jones’ AT&T Stadium suite:

“Jerry Jones wants there to be an opportunity for him to take advantage of his confidence and belief and passion and willingness to go out there and take that risk.”

OCT 31 NEW ENGLAND NAMES Amid reports that the Patriots have been calling up multiple players, names including right tackle Isaiah Wynn, running back Damien Harris and safety Jabril Peppers have been mentioned in the top rumors. the last around the Patriots. It was also reported that New England recently received inquiries about all of the Pats’ wide receivers, including Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.

OCT 31: 10 AM Sunday was a big day for rumors, with the Buffalo Bills very much in the news. The Buffalo News created a top 10 list, and here are our answers as they relate to the Bills and beyond…

1) Rams running back Cam Akers. Sources of L.A. told us that the two sides were “made up” with each other. The problem: Akers doesn’t seem to be running on “juice,” making him less of a threat than the top two backs on Buffalo’s roster.

2) Texans receiver Brandin Cooks. Cooks is an upside weapon, but the Texans, per source, will only listen if he is picked in the second round. That, and Cooks’ 2023 salary of $18 million makes this a non-starter.

3) Panthers guard Austin Corbett. He has a relationship with the Bills coaching staff and the Panthers are in fire sale mode. (Although they insist they are not.)

4) Panthers offensive lineman Cam Erving. Erving is a former Cowboy and is, respectfully, just a man.

5) Lions safety DeShon Elliott. Based on his time with the Lions – with a defense that seems to have given up 35 points at the drop of a hat – this is not attractive.

6) Chiefs running back Antonio Gibson. Washington’s front office is on record as refusing to deal Gibson. (We’d throw Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt in this category as well — a name to explore, at least.)

7) Falcons center Matt Hennessy. Deep for the bills? Sure. But keep in mind that entering Week 8, the Falcons – rather surprisingly – are in first place in the NFC South … meaning they have no reason to sell.

8) Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. A 2020 first-round pick, Jeudy would probably like to get out of Denver’s mess. The Broncos, however, would be wise to ask for an exorbitant trade price here.

There are rumors about the Cowboys here but we have more smoke than fire.

By the way, and this goes to Cooks and the Steelers’ Chase Claypool and maybe free agent Odell Beckham Jr., too: I wonder if the Bills’ front office is entertaining the idea of ​​adding Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis. as the public is?

9) Bears running back David Montgomery. He is in the final year of his rookie contract, so this will be a rental. Do bills need to include “power back”? If so, don’t they already have one in Zack Moss’s mothballs?

10) 49ers safety Tarvarius Moore. The 49ers see themselves as contenders, not “sellers” — as evidenced by their willingness to pay a price for Christian McCaffrey that the Bills won’t meet.

OCT 30 AIKMAN SEES NEED A member of the Dallas Cowboys “family” is trying to help with an opinion – and his name happens to be “Troy Aikman.”

“You better have an offense in today’s NFL if you want to win games,” Aikman told TMZ when asked if his former team should look to add a wide receiver. “As a criminal you have to have a weapon, and you have to have more than one or two.”

Michael Irvin’s contemporary Aikman has another idea, signing rehabbing free agent Odell Beckham Jr.?

That’s the man Irvin is referring to, it seems. Aikman doesn’t have a name; He only has educated opinions. Businesses, Aikman said, “will definitely help.”

Notable: Aikman made these comments about Dallas “needing some offense” before the Cowboys beat the Bears 49-29 to move to 6-2 bye.

OCT 26 EXCITING ONE? We should note that the Dallas deal for Johnathan Hankins actually preceded the Eagles trade for Robert Quinn. So no, Dallas didn’t answer the “arms race” there. But that doesn’t mean some aren’t calling for another answer, especially the rumor that Philly may be chasing Saints superstar running back Alvin Kamara.
