NGT: Cowboys CB Byron Jones Wonít Start

Saos1n : 9/8/2019 6:56 am
Recovering from offseason hip surgery. From Adam Shefter on Twitter

Not sure if heíll be an emergency replacement because it doesnít say he wonít play, only that he wonít start.
That is helpful

They probably rather he rest another week....but if things are going bad...he will see the field
My guess is they'll start Jourdan Lewis.

Good player. Gives up some size, though. Might not matter too much if their pass-rush is too tough for our O-Line to handle.
Brown, Awuzie and Lewis give them a pretty good trio.

Of course, any team will see a drop-off when their best corner doesnít play; but the Giants traded their #1 receiver and his replacement is suspended. None of the Giantsí receivers, Shepard included, poses a mismatch. One promising note: Awuzie has sub-par ball skills, and Latimer does pretty well on 50-50 balls. Maybe thereís potential for a big play or two there. Itís all moot if the offensive line struggles.
I didn't see that coming. While it's not something the Giants should

try to exploit, we should get some extra completions with one of the best corners in the league on the sideline.
I think the offensive line

Will do enough. Quinn and Gregory are out due to suspensions. Demarcus Lawrence has been out most of training camp due to rehab. Just give Eli some time to scan the field and create room for Barkley.
Byron Jones

Is legit, Iíll take it although the Cowboys lucked out facing us week one when our WRs cupboard is bare. He is another cowboy whoís contract expires at the end of the year, hope they canít afford him.

Brown will start and Lewis will be in the slot.
Jones might match up with engram when hes out wide

So could help there
Byron is healthy

Cowboys giving Byron Jones early notice that he isnt getting top of the market money.

Jerry Jones: "Your not even a starter Byron! Brown and Awuzie are ahead of you on the depth chart... now here, sign this below market deal, stay and benefit from the Cowboys brand!"
BS

I think he has been second-string on the depth chart behind Awuzie for a while, so I donít see much deception.
Jones is their starting right corner

He had hip surgery back in March, he came off a the pup list not long ago

Doesn't the league penalize teams for stuff like this? Obviously, if this stems from off season surgery, they can't claim that he just got hurt.
We got this road one as long as Eli doesn't

I don't think the league can do anything because he will be playing.

Why is this an issue? Heís coming back from surgery and they announced they are limiting his reps.
