IRVING, Texas -- You can forgive Keith Smith if he feels like he is on a never-ending roller coaster. For the fourth time this season the Dallas Cowboys called up Smith from the practice squad with injury concerns at the linebacker spot. This week Dekoda Watson has been ruled out because of a hamstring injury. Injuries to Rolando McClain, Justin Durant and Bruce Carter forced the Cowboys to call up Smith at other times. He has not spent more than two straight weeks on the active roster.
IRVING, Texas -- Was it just two years ago Robert Griffin III shredded the Dallas Cowboys in the Washington Redskins' 38-31 win on Thanksgiving? Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones wasn't quite sure himself when he talked about Griffin on NFL Network Wednesday morning. But let's take you back to Nov. 22, 2012, at AT&T Stadium.

Defensive tackle Josh Brent (groin), defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (knee), right tackle Doug Free (foot), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder) and linebacker Rolando McClain (knee) are listed as probable.
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of worries when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles offense. There is LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles running the ball. There are wide receivers Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews. There are tight ends Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and James Casey. Mark Sanchez has thrown for 300 yards in each of his three starts. But it’s more than just the personnel. It’s the tempo at which Philadelphia plays that worries the Cowboys most.
