    No Cowboys on IR Ready to Return After 3-Week Minimum

    The put several players on to start the season, hoping to take advantage of the new rules that allow for an unlimited number to be recalled to the active roster. But after serving the three-week minimum on IR, none of these players appear to returning for this week's game against the .

    To be eligible to return, a player had to be carried on the at final cuts and then placed on IR shortly after. The Cowboys most notably did this with CB Kelvin Joseph and DT Neville Gallimore, but the list included WR Malik Turner, TE Sean McKeon, OT Josh Ball, and LB .

    Some players like RB , FB , and CB Reggie Robinson were put on IR during the and thus aren't eligible to return in 2021. The two biggest names current on IR, WR and DE , didn't go on until Week 2 and are expected to miss more than just the required games.

    Dallas has managed to win its last two games even with so many missing players. But despite this recent success, getting Joseph and Gallimore back on would be wins as the Cowboys need to bolster the rotations and see what these young guys can contribute.

    Gallimore should be especially anxious to return as rookie is starting to make a case to remain with the first team. He's been Dallas' best DT so far this season and more impactful early than Neville was as a rookie in 2020.

    Joseph's situation is a bit better; none of , , or have done enough to keep the 2nd-rounder buried on the bench. Once he's healthy, Kelvin should get plenty of opportunities to show his stuff.

    As the season goes on the Cowboys will need all the help they get. With injuries prevalent throughout the league and COVID issues still a major concern, it's getting hard to predict who will be available from week to week.

    Hopefully all of these injured players are making good recoveries and will be able to contribute in the near future.

    This entire article is nothing more than a list. How about some type of information on their progress? What they are doing in rehab? Projected return date?

    It would be real nice too see Jabril Cox get a chance too show what he can do, if not for Philly tight ends getting open Dallas really locked Philly down. Diggs is the truth but Anthony Brown is not the answer and it shows when he is constantly chasing the other teams receivers. He needs help and it shows, why not bring him off the bench and make the other team find someone else too pick on. It’s almost as bad as McCarthy’s clock management.
