Dallas' rushing attack not as formidable

Ezekiel Elliott helped lead the 2016 Cowboys to a 4-1 start by averaging 109.2 YPG as a rookie. However, this season's 2-3 Cowboys haven't been nearly as effective on the ground.

Jerry: Zeke hasn't been treated in 'fair way'

Calling Thursday's ruling a "setback," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says his team and Ezekiel Elliott do not believe the suspended running back has been treated fairly throughout the process.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the team will continue to support Ezekiel Elliott. He said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas he does not believe Elliott was treated fairly by the league and called the court decision Thursday a "setback." On the field Jones said "we are ready if in fact Zeke can't play," with Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith.

Cowboys' biggest injury question for Week 6

Sean Lee has missed Dallas' past two games with a bad hamstring. The Cowboys are off this weekend and hope another week's rest will have Lee ready to play Oct. 22 at San Francisco.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

NFL says Ezekiel Elliott suspension is effective immediately, meaning he couldn't go to practice if the Cowboys had one tomorrow. He would be eligible to return to the team Nov. 24, the day after Dallas' game against the Chargers.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

My take on the pending Ezekiel Elliott suspension: it's still not official. His camp will appeal. There will be lawyers. But if it does happen soon and he's out for a while, everyone's simply guessing whether it's Darren McFadden or Alfred Morris replacing him. Or it's a combination of both. Nobody knows. The Cowboys don't know. Add each in fantasy but anyone definitively saying one over the other is guessing.

Garrett: Jones' talk with Cowboys out of 'love'

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says owner Jerry Jones helped provide context to his comments about standing for the national anthem during a meeting with players Wednesday.

The Cowboys were without their starting offensive tackles Tyron Smith (back) and La'el Collins (ankle) at their final practice of the bye week. Sean Lee is taking part in practice for the second day, and Jason Garrett said Lee's practice work Wednesday was productive.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys signed linebacker signed Justin March-Lillard Wednesday to take the roster spot created by the release of cornerback Nolan Carroll. March-Lillard was among Kansas City's final cuts but has spent time this season with Miami and Seattle.
