The next stop for Adrian Beltre: Cooperstown. The Rangers third baseman announced his retirement after 21 seasons and with 3,166 hits, 477 home runs, 1,707 RBIs and five Gold Gloves, he's an easy first-ballot Hall of Famer. Beltre was a true two-way force, one of the best defensive third basemen ever who finished in the top-10 of the MVP voting six times. He's in the argument as one of the top five third basemen of all time -- his 95.7 WAR trails only Mike Schmidt and Eddie Mathews and ranks ahead of Wade Boggs, George Brett and Chipper Jones -- and he'll be remembered for his joy for playing the game ... and not wanting anybody to touch his head.

The Cowboys are going through a "Thursday practice," at a "Friday tempo," to get ready for Washington on Thanksgiving but Zack Martin (knee) is not practicing and it looks like Tyron Smith (stinger) will be limited at best. After missing last week's game at Atlanta, defensive linemen Taco Charlton (shoulder), Antwaun Woods (concussion) and Daniel Ross (calf) are on the practice field. Michael Gallup remains with family as he deals with the passing of his brother.
