Cowboys roster moves could signal Elliott’s missing game against Packers – RJ Ochoa, Blogging the Boys

The Dallas Cowboys called running back Qadree Ollison from the practice squad on Saturday. That could mean Ezekiel Elliott won’t play in this week’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Dallas comes out of its bye week but the previous game didn’t feature Elliott, which is a rare occurrence for Zeke in his career. Dallas has been extremely conservative with the use of Zeke this year and factors the season’s marathon into its decision-making.

If you like to read tea leaves, you may have begun to believe that Elliott won’t play Green Bay on Saturday afternoon. Why is this exactly? The Cowboys raised running back Qadree Ollison, giving them fourth on the roster. They also raised guard Dakoda Shepley.

Obviously anything is possible, but it doesn’t look like the Cowboys would elevate Ollison just to have a fourth running back available to them. The most likely situation here seems to be that the team wants to have a third one available because they plan (speaking what’s likely here, without stating any type of fact) to keep Zeke out again. When you take into account that ESPN’s Ed Werder specifically said it would be a conservative move, it all makes even more sense.

With a win on Sunday, the Cowboys can put their boogeyman to bed – Christian Cline, Inside the Star

The Green Bay Packers are in shock and enter their Week 10 game with the Cowboys in a downturn. If the Cowboys manage to win at Lambeau Field, it could be the final blow for a Packers team on the ropes.

The Packers are self-destructing, you might think. They’ve lost five straight and Aaron Rodgers hasn’t looked like the back-to-back NFL MVP he’s been for the past two seasons. Aaron Rodgers is going to come into this game trying to save the Packers and Cowboys season can not let that happen.

We already know this will be a homecoming for Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, and I have no doubt he’ll have this team ready to play. But the Cowboys are going to have to dig deep and play some of their best football if they hope to kill off Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Some people might consider this game a trap game, where everyone expects the Cowboys to win, and they lose one way or another – which is what the Cowboys usually do in most fans’ recent memory.

The Cowboys have the opportunity to go to Lambeau Field this Sunday and put the nail in the coffin of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ season.

A Cowboys win would show not just the NFC, but the entire NFL that this Cowboys team is legit and different from teams of the past. The Cowboys have too big a roster to fall for this Packers team. Knocking the Packers down to 3-7 and handing them their sixth straight loss would deserve celebration for Cowboys Nation and further bolster expectations that the Cowboys are dominant this year.

Packers send 2 promisingn/a corner of the year at injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game — Evan “Tex” Western, Acme Packing Co.

When it comes to team health, the Cowboys and Packers are two teams going in opposite directions. After a series of injuries, the Green Bay Packers are scrambling to find suitable bodies for Sunday’s game.

In unsurprising news, the Packers placed cornerback Eric Stokes on the disabled list on Saturday. Stokes’ season is likely over after suffering major knee and ankle injuries last week in Detroit and this move virtually assures that will be the case. Interestingly, he is the only player to travel to RI on Saturday as the team opted to keep Roméo Doubs on the 53-man roster despite spraining his ankle.

Taking Stokes’ place on the 53 is fellow cornerback Corey Ballantine, who was promoted from the practice squad. Look for Ballantine to assist on special teams and as an emergency depth option at the corner with Stokes and Shemar Jean-Charles both unavailable.

The Packers also used their two available practice squad lifts for Sunday’s game, with one coming as a surprise and the other relatively predictable. With Rashan Gary now on injured reserve, the Packers need depth on the edge and have brought up Ladarius Hamilton to help in that area.

While that move was more predictable, kicker Ramiz Ahmed’s elevation is less so. Ahmed is expected to handle kickoffs on Sunday, according to SI.com’s Bill Huber, and act as insurance in case veteran Mason Crosby gets into trouble.

Crosby was restricted to training throughout the week but did not end up with injury status on Friday’s injury report. Still, this move suggests the team doesn’t consider him ready to handle a full workload this weekend.

Jerry Jones compares Odell Beckham pursuit to Deion Sanders – Tim Daniels, Bleacher Report

The Dallas Cowboys and Odell Beckham seem like a perfect fit now. The wide receiver needs a team and the team needs a wide receiver. The team owner has raised the possibility of adding the veteran and the players have spoken enthusiastically about Beckham.

Several Dallas players have spoken of the potential to add Beckham, a three-time Pro Bowl selection nearing the end of his recovery from a torn ACL suffered in the February Super Bowl, for the final stretch of the regular season. .

QB Dak Prescott said: “Any time you get the chance to add a talent like that and you know Odell and you know his resume, it’s exciting. But also understand that it’s a business, and I’m sure there are 31 other teams that would like to add it as well.

RB Ezekiel Elliott said: “We want it. We want OBJ.

WR CeeDee Lamb said: “He’s my boy. I’m a fan of Odell. Why wouldn’t you want to add more firepower to the attack? »

LB Micah Parsons said: “S—t we can use him. I think he’s a great player. He’s going to expand that offense. He’s a guy you want on the team alongside all the other critical stuff that people make it up and make fun of him. He can add real value to the team and help us do what we want to do.

Jones added:

“Odell is someone we appreciate around the world for what he is as a competitor,” Jones said. “I know the Cowboys star on that helmet, when he puts it on, could look really good.”
