  • According to Jones, LB Sean Lee is a long shot to return this week and DE Demarcus Lawrence (ribs) is a little beat up, but is fine. (Jori Epstein)
  • Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said RB Ezekiel Elliott is “banged up a little bit” but they’re optimistic he’ll be able to practice this week. (Jon Machota)

Giants WR Odell Beckham told reporters after Sunday’s game that it “shouldn’t be this hard” to get things going offensively.

“I’m doing everything I can,” Beckham said, via “I put my all into this. I have sacrificed everything, especially coming into this year. I have sacrificed and made personal changes, doing all I can to be the best teammate and bring everything that I can every Sunday. It’s disappointing when you have to leave like this. You work way too hard five or six days a week for 60 minutes of football. I hate to get out there and waste those 60 minutes.”
