The Dallas Cowboys have outscored opponents by 60 points after two games and now play an Arizona Cardinals team that might finish with the worst record in the NFL. This one could get ugly so long as Dallas doesn't mess around and goes for the killshot early.
It's scary to think the Cowboys have been this dominant without safety Donovan Wilson and left guard Tyler Smith, who missed Weeks 1 and 2 with calf and hamstring injuries, respectively. This roster is stacked, but Wilson and Smith's importance goes without saying.
Wilson led the team in tackles last season, while Smith was rock-solid at left tackle filling in for the injured Tyron Smith. Both starters returned to practice on Wednesday, and were joined by wideout Brandin Cooks, who sat out Week 2 with a sprained MCL.
The Cowboys could exercise more caution with the trio against the inferior Cardinals, so it'll be interesting to see if they play Sunday.
In other injury news, Zack Martin sat out Wednesday after he rolled his ankle in Week 2 and Jayron Kearse missed out with an illness.
Cowboys News: Injury report, Tyreek Hill-Micah Parsons, Amari Cooper on Nick Chubb
We'll be monitoring the Cowboys' injury report over the next few days. It wouldn't be crazy to keep Wilson, Smith and Cooks out another week given the schedule gets more difficult beginning in Week 4. At this juncture, though, Dallas' medical staff and trainers have more than earned the benefit of the doubt.
In other Cowboys news, Tyreek Hill continued his (playful) Twitter beef with Micah Parsons, who took home Defensive Player of the Week honors for his efforts in Week 2.
Replying to a highlight from Week 2 that showed Hill sealing the edge on a big run from Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert, Hill made a promise to seal off the Cowboys superstar -- as well as Chiefs world-beater Chris Jones -- later this season.
Parsons is one of the few stars in the NFL players shouldn't trash-talk, but Hill is one of the few who can get away with it because he backs it up every Sunday. Parsons hasn't replied yet, but the All-Pro will for sure have Hill's tweet at the ready in the event he steamrolls the Dolphins WR on his way to sacking Tua Tagovailoa when Dallas and Miami meet later this season.
Finally, former Cowboys wideout Amari Cooper spoke on Nick Chubb's devastating (potentially career-ending) injury suffered on Monday night.
“Obviously, it's a huge loss," said a shaken Cooper. "Nick is the engine of the team, you know what I mean? The best player on the team. Just tragic. Very unfortunate. I'm very sad for Nick. Sad for this team, losing Nick. … This is a tragedy."
We send our best to Chubb and hope he can overcome this gruesome setback.
