    Kelvin Joseph’s Return from IR Imminent, Anthony Brown at Risk of Losing Starting Job?

    The lead the NFL in takeaways through three weeks, a remarkable stat considering how desperate their need for help in the was this . Not only did they wait until the 44th overall pick to add a raw but talented player in Kentucky's Kelvin Joseph, but Joseph has begun his Cowboys career on injured reserve dealing with a hamstring suffered in .

    Veteran Anthony Brown has started across from NFC Defensive Player of the Month Trevon Diggs. Diggs playing as a shutdown corner has forced teams to thrown at Brown, and with good results. According to Pro , Brown has given up 18 catches on 24 targets against the Bucs, Chargers, and Eagles.

    All three games have called for the Cowboys opponent to throw the ball – either in an effort to keep up with or catch the Cowboys and their own elite . The Cowboys draw Sam Darnold and the today, playing their first game without star RB . The Panthers will lean on DJ Moore and Terrace Marshall in the quick passing game against 's .

    With Joseph on IR, the Cowboys have a three week window to work the rookie back into practice and then promote him to the active roster. Playing in just 15 college games, Joseph needs live reps before he's truly ready to help the East leaders in meaningful games. While he may be a few weeks away from seeing gameday, adding him to the practice lineup soon would be a big step.

    Quinn's defense has shown early on that playing time is up for grabs with players shifting positions and the Cowboys lining up in multiple fronts. In what appears to be another down year for the rest of the division, Dallas can show how wide the gap is between them and the Eagles – who they defeated by 20 on  – against one of the league's remaining unbeaten teams today.

    They'll return to division play against the Giants the following week, and could be looking at adding Joseph to the lineup at the Patriots or Vikings in the weeks after. Brown shouldn't be the only player focused on earning continued playing time, as the Cowboys are hopeful they'll add and to the rotation in the following weeks as well.

    AB is our weak sister in the defensive backfield the INT that he got against the Eagles was because the ball was under thrown when he was beat on the play! But with that said I hope he can turn it around and have a pro bowl year!

    Kelvin Joseph is far and away the better talent (player). For a rookie 2nd so called flyer(project). He more than pushed for the starting role, he won it. I did deep study of the cb draft class. Surtain and Horn are pretty good and well deserving of their drafts positions. They were supposed to gett drafted better Joseph do to experience, yet the eye test said Kelvin was the fastest (40 time approved), had the best ball skills, best hips yet inexperience showed at times. The other two mentioned were groomed by form nfl star fathers. Great and it worked but Kelvin will shine with them and will definitely out pick(int) them. Maybe a better all around career. I mean, most analysis suggested he only dropped from the first round bc of his little rap hobby. Wow. Not bc he was considered raw. He completely locked down the Heisman Trophy Winner. Shadow King!
