Cowboys news: Jerry Jones ‘admires’ a specific free agent receiver

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says free agent receiver is ‘a player I really admire’ – Ryan Morik, Fox News

With November 1 being the NFL’s trade deadline, many fans are wondering if the Cowboys will make a move, especially to the receiver. Jerry Jones may be leaving an Ariadne’s thread that is not a job.

Odell Beckham Jr. had one of the best catches of all time against the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 as a New York giant.

Almost eight years later, Jerry Jones appears to be considering bringing Beckham to Texas.

The Cowboys owner praised the free agent during a radio spot Friday.

“He did the best take I’ve seen, other than Dez’s. [Bryant] done for the touchdown against Green Bay,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “Bottom line, Odell is a player that I admire a lot.”

Beckham is still a free agent as he recovers from an ACL tear he suffered in 2022 superbowl. Prior to the injury, he grabbed the game’s first touchdown and was on course to have a memorable performance.

In eight regular-season games with LA, Beckham caught 27 passes — including five touchdowns — for 305 yards, but he added it in the playoffs.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott unlikely to play Bears before bye week – Todd Archer, ESPN

Starting running back Ezekiel Elliott suffered a PCL injury in 2021 that limited his effectiveness as a runner. The Cowboys tend not to make the same mistake twice this season.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is listed as a doubt for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears with a right knee hyperextension.

Elliott did not participate in Friday’s walkthrough after sitting out practice Wednesday and Thursday for resistance training and rehabilitation.

“The only chance he would have to play is if he continues down the right [path] that he’s really going,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “I mean he’s doing a lot better than expected. But if he trains tomorrow, he will have a chance to play.

Speaking to 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones appeared to indicate that Elliott would not play, but did not completely rule him out before the team went on leave next week.

“I’m not sure we would have done it this way if we hadn’t had the bye. It just gives too good an opportunity if we don’t use Zeke,” Jones said. “And we’ll see how he reacts as the week goes on, but if we don’t use him, it’s just too good to get him into top shape.”

Ezekiel Elliott questionable; Micah Parsons and Sam Williams questionable – Charean Williams, PFT

The Cowboys have other injuries to worry about.

Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons (shoulder) and defensive end Sam Williams (knee) are among the questionable players. Both were added to the training report on Thursday, and both were restricted in training on Friday.

Also questionable are receiver Noah Brown (foot), linebacker Devin Harper (Achilles), safety Malik Hooker (hamstring), tight end Dalton Schultz (knee) and right tackle Terence Steele (neck).

Brown and Hooker haven’t practiced all week.

Keys to Victory: Making Bears One-Dimensional – Bucky Brooks, Dallascowboys.com

Former NFL scout Bucky Brooks thinks if the Cowboys win on Sunday, we’ll come back to the Bears’ offense that will end up with a tied hand behind their back.

The Cowboys will win if…

The recipe is simple enough for the Cowboys with or without their franchise quarterback or one of their star running backs: run the ball and rely on defense to create scoring chances on big plays or turnovers. That’s how the Cowboys got to a 5-2 record and coaches shouldn’t deviate from a plan that works for this team. Against the Bears, the potential absence of Ezekiel Elliott will test the staff’s commitment to the current game with Tony Pollard expected to take on the workload. Although the fourth-year pro showed immense potential as a big game threat with the ball in his hands, he was never forced to handle a full RB1 workload as a lead runner. The Cowboys need to find a way to keep him fresh while looking at his ability to make passing contributions. Whether Pollard touches swings, screens and checks to complete his running workload, the ball needs to hit the hands of the No. 20 more than 20 times for the offense to work at an effective pace.

Defensively, the Cowboys will need to have a response to the Bears’ new and improved offense. The team switched to a college-style offense with Justin Fields billed as a dual-threat playmaker. Considering he’s run the ball at least 12 times in each of the last two games, the Cowboys will have to incapacitate the second-year pro and force him to throw to move the ball downfield. If the Cowboys contain the Bears’ No. 1-ranked running game while avoiding freebies, this game could turn into a one-sided affair.
