Jones: Cowboys released Poe due to weight, play

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team released defensive tackle Dontari Poe because he was overweight and not performing on the field, declining to say whether Poe's kneeling during the national anthem influenced the decision.

Ezekiel Elliott isn't familiar with Ben DiNucci's work at James Madison, but he likes the rookie QB, who could make his first start Sunday. “Honestly I wouldn't even know where to find Ben DiNucci's college tape,” Elliott said. “I think just from being around him for the past 2-3 months, I can see his arm talent, see his ability to move around and make throws, but, yeah we're not going to go back and look at his college tape. We're just going to play our football and I think it'll be fine.”

It's official - the Cowboys are releasing defensive tackle Dontari Poe and cornerback Daryl Worley after they were unable to make a trade with other teams, according to a source. The moves come a day after the trade of defensive end Everson Griffen to Detroit.

Ezekiel Elliott never thought the Cowboys season would be like this. “I think it's just kind of 2020 summed up,” he said. “You can't really control up to this point. We have had a lot of injuries. We haven't played the best in some games. What we do know is that I think if we this week, are we first in the division? We're still right where we need to be. We're still at a place where we can make a run for the playoffs … We've got to figure out something fast. We've got to win this weekend.”

Defensive tackle Defensive tackle Dontari Poe and cornerback Daryl Worley were not at practice during the open portion to the media. Both players have been subject to trade rumors and face the possibility of being cut if they are not dealt.

Andy Dalton was in the team meeting Wednesday but will not practice as he continues in the concussion protocol. Rookie Ben DiNucci would start Sunday at Philadelphia if Dalton can't play. “Ben's been up here relentlessly here in the last 48 hours, so he's pouring everything that he personally can into this opportunity that may be in front of him,” Mike McCarthy said. “He'll get pretty much all the work this week because I don't see Andy coming back, at the end of the week at the earliest.”

Mike McCarthy praised Everson Griffen but said the trade to Detroit offers up chances for Randy Gregory, Bradlee Anae and Dorance Armstrong. “I don't really rely on actions or transactions to really send messages,” the coach said. “I've had the opportunity to talk to the football team every day. They know clearly how I feel as far as the process of where the team needs to get to and how we're going to do it. This business is about opportunity and making the best of your opportunity.”
