Joey Bosa envisioned himself wearing a star on the side of helmet entering the 2016 draft. "I thought I was going to be a Cowboy for sure. I was pretty convinced. That's where i wanted to be originally. I thought it was a great fit for me." The Chargers ended up taking him with the third overall, one spot before the Cowboys selected Ezekiel Elliott.

Power Rankings: Cowboys remain at No. 13

The Cowboys have genuinely looked awful the past two weeks. A win over the Chargers on Thanksgiving could help right the ship, but another big loss could move them into trainwreck territory.

Sean Lee was the only player not on the field during the open portion of Tuesday's practice. Tyron Smith (groin) took the first-team snaps at left tackle, while linebacker Anthony Hitchens (groin) and safety Jeff Heath (concussion) took the first-team defensive snaps. The players are not in pads or shells for the practice with such a quick turnaround.

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sean Lee will not play Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers because of a hamstring strain. It will be Lee's fourth missed game of the season and he is iffy to play Nov, 30 against Washington.

Cowboys crumble in second half

The Cowboys fell to the Eagles 37-9 on Sunday after holding a 9-7 lead over Philadelphia at halftime. Dallas has lost only one other game by more than 20 points after leading at the intermission.

Kicker Dan Bailey is holding out hope he can return to game action Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers after missing four games with a groin injury. He started kicking again last week and went through a fairly involved pregame routine Sunday. If he doesn't return against the Chargers, he believes he will be ready Nov. 30 against Washington.

Grading the quarterback play for the Cowboys

Dak Prescott's play has leveled off the last two weeks after he played a key role in the Cowboys' 5-3 start, sometimes carrying the team more than should've been expected. But the question remains, can he succeed without Ezekiel Elliott?

Report: NFL nixes Jones' call for Goodell vote

The NFL's compensation committee has denied Jerry Jones' request that the league's owners be allowed a final vote of approval on commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Drew Bledsoe on Terry Glenn, who passed away Sunday night after a car accident: “He was one of those guys that just grew up in the worst possible environment and he told me at one point he had a hard time trusting people because everybody he ever trusted either betrayed him or died and so he kept to himself,” Bledsoe said. “But as he got older, he really started to open up. When I was with him there at the end of our careers in Dallas, he really started to allow himself to trust people and started to turn a corner and become a happy person. Then with his retirement he was making a big impact on the world. The last time I talked to him he just sounded like he was genuinely happy and in such a good place and really finally totally overcoming those demons from the way he grew up. He was living a long and fulfilled life and that makes it just such a horrible tragedy seeing what he overcame and then for his life to end too soon.”
