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.
