NFL Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Packers, & Patriots
- Todd Archer does not think the Cowboys will sign a free agent cornerback or pass rusher this season to help their pass defense.
- Archer believes it would take a “miracle” for second-round LB Jaylon Smith (knee) to play in the 2016 playoffs. Although there has been “some regeneration” in his knee’s nerve, it has not been a significant recovery.
- Jeff Howe reports that DT Alan Branch, who is appealing his four-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy, is travelling with the team and will be eligible to play.
- Howe also reports that DE Jabaal Sheard travelled with the team after being a healthy scratch last week due to performance reasons.
