There is no football game to be played this week for the Dallas Cowboys as they are on bye, but there are still roster decisions to be made. The rest of this season is one of data-gathering for America’s Team as, at 2-7, they are seemingly out of the playoff race despite the ineptitude that plagues the NFC East.
Whether the Cowboys are openly tanking is obviously a subject that we don’t need to debate, but we have seen them prioritizing snaps for younger players and that was something that worked out last week specifically with Neville Gallimore playing well.
Dallas has returned another defensive lineman that they previously had in the building. Hopefully you didn’t sell your Ron’Dell Carter stock.
The Cowboys have claimed Ron’Dell Carter from the Colts, they have also placed Tyrone Crawford on the Reserve/Covid-19 list
Some Cowboys fans were bummed to see the team not keep Ron’Dell Carter when they originally set the 53-man roster. He wound up with the Indianapolis Colts and our old friend Matt Eberflus, but ultimately that didn’t last and he was suddenly eligible to be had once again.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the Cowboys are bringing Carter back. What’s more is that they are placing veteran defensive end Tyrone Crawford on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
Crawford becomes the second Cowboys player to be placed on the list as the team put Andy Dalton there last week. Several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, were placed on the list by that organization this week, it is unknown whether there is any connection between the two but obviously Dallas hosted them just a few days ago.
As noted, the Cowboys are on bye this week so there is no game to play. They are scheduled to return next Sunday afternoon on the road against the Minnesota Vikings and then will have a very quick turnaround before they host Washington on Thanksgiving Day.
