Jason Garrett Addresses Preseason Moves For Running Back Minus Ezekiel Elliott

Jason Garrett Addresses Preseason Moves For Running Back Minus Ezekiel Elliott

Rams get Watkins from Bills: The Rams took a major step toward upgrading their receiver corps Friday, acquiring receiver Sammy Watkins in a trade that sent cornerback E.J. Gaines to the Buffalo Bills. But with starting left guard candidate Byron Bell getting flagged for his second holding penalty of the possession, the series stalled and the Cowboys had to settle for a 32-yard field goal from Dan Bailey.

The third Rams quarterback to play Saturday, Dan Orlovsky, was 1 of 2 for 3 yards.

"It was a pretty good year", McFadden said.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had maintained he hadn't seen anything to indicate Elliott was guilty of domestic violence and he didn't think his star back would be suspended. Fortunately, Kupp recovered the ball in the end zone and gave the Rams their first touchdown of the year.

The Cowboys open the season at home September 10 against the New York Giants in a nationally televised Sunday night game. I get to play in another game.

National Football League special counsel for conduct Todd Jones wrote in the letter to Elliott that advisers "were of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that (Elliott) engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016".

"I have reviewed everything, and there is absolutely nothing - not one thing - that had anything to do with domestic violence", Jones said during the team's training camp. Should that happen, this incident could be one that we're revisiting at some point.

"Obviously you lose a guy who's very talented, but we've got a lot of guys who can run the football and run it very successfully in this league", All-Pro right guard Zack Martin said.

He passed for 435 yards and three touchdowns in the final game of 2015 against the Redskins - his last before an injury kept him out for all of 2016.

Dallas quarterback Kellen Moore completed 8 of 17 passes for 69 yards, and Luke McCown was 6 of 13 for 31 yards. Rush also caught the eye of Garrett during the Hall of Fame Game last week, and his exceptional touch on the TD throw to Gathers was undeniably impressive.

BUTTERFINGERS: The Rams hung in despite alarming ball security. And then you just look to what's surrounding, the supporting cast around that running back position.

BIG HIT: Dallas rookie Taco Charlton got his first sack, downing Mannion in the first quarter.
