Lockdown. That’s the appropriate word to use when describing how Trevon Diggs is putting wide receivers in jail this season. His league-leading three interceptions and six passes defended garnered him NFC Defensive Player of the Month honors for September. Backup running back Tony Pollard didn’t run wild on the field at practice. Instead, he was absent, but luckily it was for personal reasons and not an injury.

Wide receiver Malik Turner can now prepare to return to the Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster from his ankle injury after his practice window was activated. Hall of Famer Calvin Johnson knows all the ins and outs when it comes to the wide receiver position, and when asked which young receiver could take over as the league’s best like he once did, CeeDee Lamb’s name was mentioned immediately. In addition to that loaded menu is the self-belief of Jayron Kearse, bold predictions for the Dallas Cowboys against the Carolina Panthers, DeMarcus Ware endorsing Micah Parsons, and more are at the forefront of news and notes.

The case can be made that Diggs is playing the cornerback position better than any human breathing oxygen right now. His three interceptions are tied for the NFL lead and his six passes defended are tops in that category.

Kearse was signed back in March to be a depth piece at safety and to provide special teams help. However, in a violent game like football, one’s number can be called at any time and when Donovan Wilson went down with a groin issue, Kearse saw his snaps increase and his play has been very solid. It’s not a surprise to him though as everything has been a part of a bigger plan.

With Keanu Neal likely out another week due to COVID protocols and Parsons getting another heavy load rushing off the edge, it would seem like more playing time for rookie linebacker Jabril Cox would be a no-brainer in Week 4 right? Not so fast. Rob Phillips and David Helman break down how the play of veterans Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, which has been solid, will probably prevent that for now. Also, they discuss how the Cowboys shouldn’t have trouble losing focus with a good Panthers team coming into town.
