Cowboys week two rookie report: Tony Pollard nearly scores first career touchdown, Joe Jackson gets first tackle

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Your weekly recap of the rookies’ performances. Much like last week, it was a very quiet week for the Cowboys rookies. Second-round pick Trysten Hill remains a healthy scratch, while fellow rookies Donovan Wilson, Luke Gifford, and Brandon Knight have not suited up because of injury. That leaves Tony Pollard and Joe Jackson, who were the only two rookies to see playing time in week one. How did the two first-year players perform in the divisional win? Tony Pollard Pollard — and, well, Ezekiel Elliott — was contained by the Giants defense in week one,...

Report: Tony Pollard and Maliek Collins fined for their penalties against the New York Giants

Report: Tony Pollard and Maliek Collins fined for their penalties against the New York Giants

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Both Cowboys players will have to write a check. The Dallas Cowboys were victorious in their Week 1 game against the New York Giants, but that performance seems to have come at a price for two of their players... literally. NFL games generally have at the very least a couple of penalties throughout them and there were two for Cowboys players that the league looked at and felt further action was necessary. Both Tony Pollard and Maliek Collins have been fined by the NFL for their actions against the G-Men. Two Cowboys were fined for infractions against the...

Cowboys week one rookie report: Limited action for Tony Pollard, Joe Jackson vs. Giants

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via It wasn’t a very busy week for the rooks. There was no shortage of incredible play in week one for the Dallas Cowboys during the team’s 18-point victory over the New York Giants. Kellen Moore’s brilliant plan was on full display as Dak Prescott threw for over 400 yards and four touchdowns and the excitement is as high as it has been in a long time. As for the rookies, there were not a ton of snaps going around. Second-round pick Trysten Hill was a healthy scratch in the season opener and fellow rookies Donovan Wilson, Brandon Knight, Luke...

Cowboys roster move: Ezekiel Elliott added to 53-man roster, Alfred Morris released to make room

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports Fare thee well, Alfred. In the early days of training camp, Jerry Jones and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys were thrilled to be able to bring in then-free agent running back Alfred Morris. Of course, at the time Dallas was dealing with a holdout from Ezekiel Elliott (who has since signed a long-term contract extension) and needed a veteran presence to go with young running backs Tony Pollard, Mike Weber, and Jordan Chunn. Fast forward a month and a half and almost 24 hours away from the regular season beginning. With Elliott back in tow, the Cowboys had to...

The New York Giants are gearing up to play the Dallas Cowboys while the latter will almost certainly be without starting running back Ezekiel Elliott for the upcoming NFC East matchup.

The Cowboys are looking very good in preseason - so what might that mean?

Tony Pollard looks like just one steal from the draft. | Photo by Ronald Martinez/ The preseason games don’t count, but they should mean something. The Dallas Cowboys have gotten through the meat of the NFL preseason, with only the final game, where almost none of the regula- season starters will play, remaining. And the results have been about as good as we could hope. When the starters comprised most of the team on the field, both the offense and defense have been impressive. In the most recent game against the Houston Texans, the defense could be described as dominant, and the...

Cowboys notebook: Randall Cobb takes snaps at QB; team has confidence in Tony Pollard with Ezekiel Elliott's absence

Cowboys notebook: Randall Cobb takes snaps at QB; team has confidence in Tony Pollard with Ezekiel Elliott's absence

Wide receiver Randall Cobb was a quarterback in college before switching to wide receiver full-time in his sophomore season at Kentucky. In the NFL, he's attempted just two passes, the last time in 2017 when he completed a 10-yard pass for the Packers. But Cobb lined up as a quarterback in the shotgun during Tuesday's practice, only to handoff to running back Tony Pollard. Cobb also took some reps with the quarterbacks during individual drills to get warmed up.Seeing Cobb at quarterback is just another wrinkle to the Cowboys' offense under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore."It's been a...

This breakdown of Tony Pollard is an absolute must watch

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via The Tony Pollard hype is being experienced by many. There were a lot of good things that happened for the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, so many that a few slipped through in the midst of all the fun. This is a good problem to have. It’s true that there was plenty of praise to go around, and that wasn’t exactly the case during the team’s first two preseason games. After Dallas took on San Francisco and the Los Angeles Rams it was more difficult to find what plenty of people did well. The obvious star from those performances, especially the one...

WR Michael Gallup shares why Tony Pollard is an 'obvious' choice for Cowboy on offense with best camp performance

Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup joined the Ben and Skin show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLKD-FM} to discuss his offseason and the Cowboys offense. Here are some of the highlights: Do you think you've improved this offseason and in what ways?"I definitely feel [I've improved]. I think the biggest thing I've done this past year was get in my playbook and know where to line up, know where the quarterback's looking to go, just understanding the game a lot more. I think that's helping my overall game a lot this year."How have you and Dak Prescott been able to improve your connection?"When we came out...

Cowboys roster projection 2.0: Taco Charlton earns a spot on the 53, veteran RB gets cut and Dallas keeps 6 WRs

As the Cowboys head into the fourth preseason game, some hard decisions had to be made regarding our second 53-man roster projection. The defensive backs and defensive line are both deep units which is a testament to the coaching and scouting staffs. One thing that's certain, Tony Pollard will make the roster. Taco Charlton? Donovan Wilson? Xavier Su'a-Filo? Here. We. Go. Quarterback (2)Mike White performed much better in the third preseason game but it's probably too late. His struggles in training camp and the preseason were too much to overcome. Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush are the...

After Tony Pollard's strong performance in Saturday's preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams, there have been plenty of jokes (see Jerry Jones) and comments made about the rookie's potential as a threat to Ezekiel Elliott.And while Elliott continues his holdout, Pollard will surely get more opportunities, allowing his talent to shine even more.And if the potential does arrive, for some reason Elliott doesn't come back, Pollard feels ready to take over"100%, I believe in myself," Pollard said of Elliott potentially not returning.
