    The Dallas Cowboys are likely to play Ezekiel Elliott the rest of the way, which is actually bad news given by Jerry Jones. Zeke has been dealing with a knee injury for seemingly weeks, and rather than giving him time off, they’ve merely been making the ailment worse. To be clear, this isn’t Elliott’s fault. He’s been given direction from the Cowboys coaching and medical staff. Despite further comments on his ailing knee by Elliott after the Cowboys’ Thursday night win, Jerry Jones is convinced he won’t miss any time. What’s stopping Cowboys from sitting Ezekiel Elliott?“His trainers, the people that are the closest to his health, his medical situation, they think he’s really good to go,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “And, so, I don’t see after a 10-day rest here, you know, a lot of times, if you can get through games, if you can push on, then that’s better for you than sitting it out. You actually, if you have an issue, it improves if you’re able to get through and not injure it more. He certainly...
    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones provided some great news regarding three players on their defense. The Dallas Cowboys are currently on a two-game losing streak following the team’s 36-33 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The team looks to bring an end to that on Thursday night when they face a New Orleans Saints that is currently on a four-game skid. Ahead of the primetime game, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones provided some great updates on three of their defensive players during an appearance on 105.3 The FAN. Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will play against the Saints, while fellow defensive linemen Neville Gallimore and Randy Gregory could return next week for Dallas’ game against the Washington Football Team.

    After missing two games due to testing positive for COVID, Amari Cooper’s status for Thursday Night Football is completely up in the air.  While the Dallas Cowboys have welcomed back Amari Cooper from the COVID-19 list, that doesn’t mean that all is well for the star wide receiver. That’s because there’s a chance he might miss his third consecutive game. Per head coach Mike McCarthy, Cooper is still not back to 100 percent and he’s still feeling a little ill. Because of this, it’s not certain that he’ll be able to practice on Tuesday. On top of that, it’s unknown if he’ll be able to suit up on Thursday night against the Saints. Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but "still not feeling the best," coach Mike McCarthy said. Still has a cough. "To be determined" whether hell practice today.

    Getty Tyron Smith Dak Prescott will return to the Dallas Cowboys starting lineup sans his stalwart blindside blocker. Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith is likely to miss Sunday’s contest against the Denver Broncos as he deals with an ankle injury that is not considered overly severe, head coach Mike McCarthy affirmed. “Rest is part of it,” McCarthy said. “I think he’ll definitely be challenged this week but once we get past this, I’m not looking at this as a long-term injury at all.” McCarthy said Thursday that Smith would be “pressed to play” in Week 9. Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones previously revealed the 30-year-old is dealing with bone spurs in his ankle, which he initially injured amid the team’s October 17 victory at New England. “We’ll have to see how Tyron practices. They say it’s a spur. We should and will practice with alternatives to him being out there,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News.

    Getty DeMarcus Lawrence DeMarcus Lawrence received a six-to-eight-week prognosis upon breaking his foot last month, and the Dallas Cowboys veteran defensive end is expected to require every day of that recovery period — if not longer. Speaking Monday, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones affirmed Lawrence, who fractured his fifth metatarsal during a Sept. 15 practice, will “probably” miss another “month-plus.” Such is also the case for third-round rookie defensive tackle Neville Gallimore, who remains on injured reserve after dislocating his left elbow in August. “The fortunate thing is we’re going to get him back,” Jones said of Lawrence on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “It’s still a little early to start to pin down when it’s going to be, but it’s going to be several games past the bye before we’re going to get him back. But most people would agree he was probably our best defensive player before he got hurt, and it’s going to be great when we do get him back. We’re going to have to continue to weather the storm. We’re...
    The Dallas Cowboys got the opposite of the news they were hoping for on defensive end DeMarcus Cousins, who reportedly has a broken foot. When defensive end DeMarcus Cousins landed on the injury report on Wednesday, concern immediately spiked that he might have to miss extended time. It appears that concern was warranted. If reports are to be believed, the defensive star is going to miss Sunday’s game against the Chargers and more.DeMarcus Cousins injury update: Cowboys DE has broken foot“Source tells me DE Demarcus Lawrence has suffered a broken foot,” Joe Trahan of WFAA tweeted. Ian Rapoport confirmed the report of a broken foot while Lawrence himself tweeted about the injury. Will be Back & Ready for War. Believe it. ???????? — DeMarcus Lawrence (@TankLawrence) September 15, 2021 There’s no official timetable for a return, but an injury like that is likely to keep Lawrence out for a chunk of the season even if the Cowboys are lucky on a quick recovery.

    More On: dak prescott Cowboys know they made a costly Dak Prescott mistake Star QB ditching Adidas in massive endorsement deal Jerry Jones on Dak Prescott contract: I’ve ‘overpaid’ for special things Dak Prescott ‘insulted’ by charge surrounding Cowboys contract Any sort of injury news about Dak Prescott is guaranteed to send Cowboys nation into a panic. The team’s Twitter appeared to take that into consideration when they tried to dull the latest blow. After Prescott said he would undergo another MRI exam on the shoulder injury he suffered on July 28, the Cowboys’ Twitter editorialized the team’s press release by saying: “It’s not a setback. And it’s not a reason to worry. But QB Dak Prescott is planning on getting another MRI.” It’s hard to fault the Dallas fans for worrying. Prescott is coming off a season where he suffered a brutal compound fracture in his ankle, ending his season and requiring multiple surgeries in the offseason. He is fully recovered from that injury, but during a training camp practice on July 28 – shown in the...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list after passing his physical, the team announced Tuesday. Cooper, who underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery in January, has yet to participate in training camp nor run a “real route” since having the operation. He’s now eligible to practice ahead of Dallas’ second preseason game Friday against the Arizona Cardinals, though beat reporters consider the four-time Pro Bowler unlikely to see much action before next month’s regular-season opener. Cooper is the second Cowboys player to come off PUP in as many weeks, joining defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. Remaining on the injured list are kicker Greg Zuerlein (back), defensive tackle Trysten Hill (knee), and rookie defensive end Chauncey Golston (hamstring). “Cowboys WR Amari Cooper passed his physical and has been removed from PUP list, team announced. Move doesn’t mean Cooper will practice right away, although he could join team in its “mock games” (walkthroughs),” tweeted Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. Gehlken added: “Cowboys WR Amari Cooper and...
    Some rough news has come in for the Dallas Cowboys, as Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott took a step back with his shoulder injury and he’ll miss the first preseason game of the year.  Just when Dallas Cowboys fans thought they could be fired up about Dak Prescott’s return from his fractured ankle, the stud signal-caller is dealing with another injury. This time for Prescott, it’s his throwing shoulder that’s giving him issues. So much in fact, Prescott wasn’t able to throw at a recent practice and he won’t be doing so again on Tuesday. On top of that, head coach Mike McCarthy has said that Prescott won’t be playing in the Hall of Fame Game against the Steelers. Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has “taken a step back” in his return from shoulder strain, coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’re being more conservative with his timetable.” Prescott won’t throw today.

    The Dallas Cowboys may need to prepare for training camp without Amari Cooper. Even with the Dallas Cowboys playing in this year’s Hall of Fame Game, don’t expect wide receiver Amari Cooper to be ready in time for training camp. According to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, Cooper is dealing with a nagging ankle injury he suffered a few weeks ago. He has not run in two weeks and is not expected to run for an additional two or three. This means Cooper will not be ready to go once training camp starts. From @NFLTotalAccess: #Cowboys WR Amari Cooper may not be ready for training camp as he rests with hopes that an irritation in his ankle will calm down, while #Falcons WR Calvin Ridley underwent minor foot surgery. pic.twitter.com/NYEfRvAXHs — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 9, 2021 Dallas Cowboys fans may not like the latest injury news on WR Amari CooperWhile not having Cooper readily available once training camp starts stinks, it is not like Dallas is devoid of talent in the receiving corps.

    Getty Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith The arrival of Micah Parsons could spell the departure of Jaylon Smith. With the Dallas Cowboys‘ first-round rookie entrenched at middle linebacker and walk-year veteran Leighton Vander Esch likely penciled in at weakside linebacker, ESPN’s Todd Archer believes Smith will be moved to the strongside where his role would be significantly diminished under new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. “The SAM linebacker plays 20 snaps a game,” Archer noted Friday during an interview on 105.3 The Fan. “Paying $7 million to a guy for 20 snaps a game doesn’t seem to be the best financial use. But you start hearing Jerry [Jones] talk about the pressure that Jaylon can get, that Parsons can get, and the different things they can do. “One thing Jaylon Smith is not: he’s not an edge rusher. He’s a decent blitzer up the middle; he’s not an edge guy because he doesn’t have that bend that you want. Maybe Parsons is that guy. How they mix in these three guys is going to be a fascinating experiment going forward.”...
    Dallas Cowboys fans are going to love what Dak Prescott said on Tuesday afternoon. After missing most of last season with a broken ankle, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott gave an update on video about how his recovery is going. “I could go play in a game right now and in my head be very, very successful,” Prescott said. “There’s no doubt that when I need to be successful, when I need to do the things that it takes to be on the field, I’ll do exactly that and the timing will be right.” With a healthy Prescott, the Cowboys could win the NFC East. This is the most winnable division in football, as the Washington Football Team won it a year ago with a sub-.500 record of 7-9. Though the New York Giants played well down the stretch, we are not sure what to make of Daniel Jones under center. As for the Philadelphia Eagles, how about a game of rock, paper, scissors? If you are a Cowboys fan and are not fired up after what Prescott said Tuesday, I don’t know...
    Getty Jerry Jones Straight from the horse’s mouth comes the final word: Kyle Pitts isn’t destined for the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, holding his pre-NFL Draft press conference Tuesday, pointedly shut down speculation that he’s “infatuated” with the Florida tight end, defining the characterization — and the accompanying trade predictions — as “not legitimate.” “It’s a distortion for this draft and where we are there,” Jones said, via Pro Football Talk. “It implies something that’s just not the case.

    Stephen Jones, the executive vice president of the Dallas Cowboys, is hyping up the 2021 offensive line with key figures finally healthy. Things couldn’t have gone more wrong for the Dallas Cowboys‘ offensive line in 2020 as injuries devastated the unit. There’s good news going into 2021, though. Dallas expects to have three key players at full strength, including Tyron Smith, La’el Collins and Zack Martin after they missed 14, 16 and six games, respectively, in 2020. Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said on @1053thefan he believes LT Tyron Smith (neck), RT La’el Collins (hip) and RG Zack Martin (calf) will be “as good as we’ve seen them in a long time. They’re healthy.

    Getty Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy Move over, Adam Schefter. Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy played the role of NFL news-breaker amid Thursday’s press conference at The Star, announcing that unrestricted free-agent defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford is hanging up his cleats after eight seasons. “He’s going to retire,” McCarthy told reporters. The veteran’s body long “through the ringer,” as the Dallas Morning News put it, Crawford’s decision was expected following 2019 dual hip surgery which limited the 31-year-old to just three starts last season. Mike Fisher of CowboysSI.com first reported in January that Crawford was mulling retirement. “The Dallas Cowboys, in New York today hoping for a win and a chance to extend their way into the playoffs, hope this NFL Week 17 Sunday doesn’t mark their final game of the season. But if it does, it might mean the final game of stalwart defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford’s career,” Fisher wrote. “Crawford, 31, is considering retirement following the 2020 season, a possible closing of the book of a nine-year career that has seen him serve as a versatile...
    Getty Aldon Smith The second week of NFL free agency is upon us, and Aldon Smith remains without a 2021 home. The Dallas Cowboys previously insisted they would push to re-sign the star-crossed defensive end, who hoped to spin his successful comeback last season into multi-year contractual security. But c’est la vie. There is no current indication that an agreement is likely between Smith and the Cowboys, nor that a deal even is being discussed. That’s because the team seems to have adopted a contradictory stance on the mercurial edge demon. “Multiple sources” tell Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News that the Cowboys feel Smith “fits their defensive scheme but still trying to figure out if they want him to return.” It sounds bizarre, but the proof here is in the pudding. Appeasing new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, the Cowboys plucked several defenders off the open market in recent days, including outside linebacker Tarell Basham and weakside linebacker/safety Keanu Neal. The club also brought back DE Ron’Dell Carter to pair with the likes of DeMarcus Lawrence, Randy...

    Getty Kellen Moore As fate would have it, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current FOX commentator Troy Aikman was assigned to the team’s regular-season finale against the Giants. And during the broadcast, Aikman leaked a bit of unreported news on Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who rebuffed a head-coaching job with his alma mater, Boise State, and agreed to a multi-year contract extension on Saturday — after supposedly agreeing to coach BSU. This is how the exchange went between FOX play-by-play man Joe Buck and Adam Schefter Aikman: Buck: “Interesting story about [Moore] potentially going to Boise State, where he was so good; 50-3 as quarterback there. But that fell apart and he has since signed an extension to stay with the Dallas Cowboys. He’s been the offensive coordinator the last two years [under] two different coaches.” Aikman: “I’ve been hearing, Joe … I don’t know what exactly was reported.

Joe Judge’s New York Giants currently sit at the summit of their division at this stage of the season. Head coach Mike McCarthy is trying to make the best of this unfortunate mess he finds himself in, especially since the injury to quarterback Dak Prescott.

    Getty Dak Prescott Dak Prescott is doing better than anticipated in his recovery from a gruesome right ankle compound fracture and dislocation. Cowboys VP Stephen Jones revealed Monday that doctors consider the franchise quarterback “ahead of schedule” following season-ending surgery and believe Prescott will return closer to the four-month mark of his six-month rehab timeline. “This is a four-month injury and so far, if anything, everything we’re getting from (associate athletic trainer Britt Brown) and the doctors is that he’s ahead of schedule. He’s been able to avoid any setbacks and if anything, he’s ahead of schedule, which shouldn’t be a surprise,” Jones told reporters Monday, via ESPN. Injured in the team’s win over the Giants, Prescott underwent emergency surgery Oct. 12 and was discharged from the hospital the next day. One week later, the two-time Pro Bowl passer was deemed infection-free as medical staff reportedly “were closely monitoring the situation to guard against it.” Jones spouted positivity then, too, vowing Dallas “absolutely not” has given up on Prescott as its long-term signal-caller. “He’s our future,” Jones said...
    On Tuesday, Sporting News published a list of quarterbacks the Dallas Cowboys could potentially trade for in the aftermath of the injury Andy Dalton suffered during Sunday’s 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team. Among these signal-callers was veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Miami Dolphins, who was recently benched by his team in favor of rookie Tua Tagovailoa. In its entry for Fitzpatrick, the publication referred to the 37-year-old as an “interesting” upgrade over third-stringer Ben DiNucci, who was forced into action on Sunday after Dalton was taken out of the game with a concussion. With the Cowboys (2-5) scheduled to face the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles (2-4-1) in Week 8, Sporting News stressed that the organization should ideally attempt a trade for a “viable veteran replacement” for Dalton, who took over behind center after Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury in Week 5.   Patrick McDermott / Getty Images Talking about why Fitzpatrick could be a good acquisition for Dallas, the outlet pointed out that Fitzpatrick has enjoyed “short-term success” playing under a wide range of systems during his...
    The Cowboys’ struggles now include condiments. Dallas defensive coordinator Mike Nolan had to pause his Monday Zoom news conference with reporters because he said he had Tabasco sauce on his finger and rubbed it in his eye, causing it to burn. The incident occurred with Nolan answering a question about pass-rusher DeMarcus Lawrence. “He’s been active every week as far as, I think, disrupting the quarterback. He’s escaped several times to do that,” Nolan said. “Obviously, the frustration for him as well is — look, it’s when he misses them. Whoop, excuse me. I’ve got something in my eye. Just had some Tabasco on my finger, and it went in my eye. That wasn’t good. Ugh. Terrible, geez. I’m sorry.” The 61-year-old Nolan was away from the call for several minutes and let everyone know he was OK upon returning. “My eye feels a lot better,” Nolan said. “But it was burning.” Cowboys have been feeling some pain in the field as well. Jerry Jones’s team is 2-5 off a demoralizing 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team on...
    The Dolphins have named Tua Tagovailoa as their starting quarterback moving forward, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. The news is somewhat surprising considering that the Dolphins are just a game out of first place in the AFC East, and starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has played really well. Fitzpatrick has scored three touchdowns in three of his past four games, and has topped 300 passing yards three times this season. Fitzpatrick is 12th in total passing yards (1,535), fifth in completion percentage (70.1), 13th in touchdown passes (10) and seventh in ESPN’s QBR metric (79.6). In other words, he’s played above average and is a big reason why the Dolphins are off to a strong start in 2020.

Fourth-round rookie Tyler Biadasz will fill in. — NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) October 6, 2020 Joe Looney missing multiple weeks for the Cowboys is the last thing Dak Prescott needsUnfortunately for the Cowboys, Looney suffered a sprained MCL in the loss to the Browns and will now miss at least the next two games....
    NuNu is an American Paint horse that made headlines last week after being forced to gallop for more than seven miles on a paved highway in Chicago, despite not being outfitted with proper shoes for pavement. NuNu was running down the Dan Ryan Expressway on Monday, where witnesses claim they saw the rider kick and whip the horse to make it continue to run despite being injured and suffering from exhaustion. The horse finally collapsed to the ground. The horse's rider, 33-year-old activist Adam Hollingsworth known as the "Dread Head Cowboy" and "Census Cowboy," was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated animal cruelty, a class 4 felony. He was also charged with misdemeanors, including reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer, criminal trespass to state-supported property, obstruction of traffic, and operating a non-highway-vehicle on a highway. Hollingsworth said that he rode the horse as a way to bring awareness to the #KidsLivesMatter movement, self-described as an initiative "that aims to raise awareness and motivate residents to fill out the census to help communities...
    Getty Sean Lee This explains why the Dallas Cowboys poached a linebacker Tuesday. According to NFL Network’s Jane Slater, starting Cowboys LB Sean Lee underwent sports hernia surgery and expects to miss six weeks. Lee, already on injured reserve until at least Week 3, is now eyeing a mid-October return. Lee’s groin issue dates back to 2019; ESPN’s Todd Archer has termed it a “pelvis strain.” The 34-year-old signed a one-year contract this offseason to retain his job aside Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. The perpetually-plagued Lee, who has yet to practice in 2020, also suffered an undisclosed injury amid pre-training camp strength and conditioning workouts, head coach Mike McCarthy revealed last month. What could be dubbed a setback for Lee piles added strain on a Dallas defense that lost Vander Esch to a broken collarbone, the recovery period for which is 6-8 weeks. Reserve ‘backer Luke Gifford (ankle) also was inactive for the team’s season-opening loss to the Rams. Career backup Joe Thomas should start in LVE’s stead Sunday when the Cowboys make their 2020 home...
    Getty Xavier Woods There are a few question marks in the Dallas Cowboys‘ secondary heading into Sunday’s regular-season opener at Los Angeles. Safety Xavier Woods isn’t among them. Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones intimated Tuesday that he fully expects Woods, hampered by a groin injury, to play against the Rams. “Everything’s on go. It would really be a surprise if he didn’t get out there Sunday night. I think he got a good checkup yesterday and he should be moving around out there this week in a good way,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. Woods tweaked his groin during the team’s intrasquad scrimmage last month. He’s been unable to practice in full, though his Week 1 status was never in jeopardy. “Feel real good about him playing,” Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said Monday. Speaking before Wednesday’s practice, head coach Mike McCarthy said he anticipates Woods and cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (knee) participating after both players responded well to treatment and received encouraging updates from the training staff. Woods is locked in as a starter opposite Darian Thompson,...
    Getty Gerald McCoy with Bucs Gerald McCoy avoided a previously-reported torn ACL, but the result is the same: his season’s finished before it began. Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones announced Monday that McCoy suffered a ruptured right quadriceps tendon during the team’s first padded practice of training camp. The six-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman will undergo reparative surgery and miss the entire 2020 campaign. “It’s certainly disappointing,” Jones said, via USA Today. “We’re first and foremost disappointed about Gerald, but also it’s disappointing for us. He was one of our major acquisitions there in the offseason in free agency. “Unfortunately, that’s why you have to have a deep roster.” According to on-site media, McCoy went down during individual drills and “quickly clutched” his knee. He was “visibly frustrated” and unable to put weight on the leg while being helped off the field. A subsequent MRI confirmed the severity of the injury. McCoy represented the opening salvo as the Cowboys rebuilt their defensive line this offseason via free agency and the draft. The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers...
