Welcome to the NFL, rook. The Cowboys thought they were going to have a competition for the starting corner opposite Trevon Diggs. Even with Anthony Brown taking the lead thanks to being able to alternate sides as Diggs followed opposing teams’ No. 1 receivers, second-round pick Kelvin Joseph was supposed to see plenty of action early in the season. A groin injury in the final preseason game put a halt to all of that, but after six weeks on the shelf plus a bye week, Joseph is ready to make his professional debut.
His activation is one of a handful of moves the Cowboys (5-1) made in preparation for their Week 8 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings (3-3). They also welcomed back La’el Collins while moving two players to injured reserve while shuffling their practice squad a bit. Here’s a look at who is eligible to play on Sunday, who isn’t and who is on the way.
