RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Davis reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Davis played 16 snaps on special teams but didn't record any stats during Sunday's 22-20 loss to the Dolphins. The veteran running back has appeared in three games for Dallas this season, but he hasn't yet handled an offensive snap.

Elevated ahead of Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-23

The Cowboys elevated Davis to their active roster Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The second-year pro is now in line to appear in his third game of the season Sunday, most likely adding depth to Dallas' special teams unit. Over the course of Davis' two appearances this year, he's played a total of 31 snaps (all as a special-teamer).

Davis reverted to Dallas' practice squad Monday.

Davis has appeared in two games for the Cowboys this season but has played zero offensive snaps. He's seen 31 on special teams.

Elevated from practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-16

Davis was elevated from the practice squad by the Cowboys on Saturday, The Dallas Morning News reports.

The running back is listed as fourth on Dallas' depth chart behind Tony Pollard, Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn. Davis has played in one game this season but has yet to see an offensive snap.

Goes back to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-18

Davis reverted to Dallas' practice squad Tuesday.

In his 2023 debut, Davis recorded 14 snaps, all on special teams. As long as Tony Pollard, Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn remain healthy, Davis' path to carries is essentially nonexistent.

Elevated for Monday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-16

Davis has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Monday night's game against the Chargers, Nick Harris of the Cowboys' official site reports.

This marks Davis' first elevation of the season, with the running back in line to provide the team with another Week 6 depth behind top back Tony Pollard. During the 2022 season, Davis carried 38 times for 161 yards and a TD, while adding six catches on seven targets for 63 yards in 12 games with Dallas.

Back with Cowboys on practice squad

Dallas signed Davis to the practice squad Wednesday, Patrik Walker of the team's official site reports.

Davis couldn't make the Cowboys' initial 53-man roster, but the veteran will stick around as an emergency reserve option on the practice squad. At one point fantasy managers eyed Davis as the likeliest top backup to Tony Pollard, but Dallas instead seems set to roll out Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn as depth options, with Ronald Jones (suspension) out the first two games of the regular season.

Cut loose by Dallas

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-29

The Cowboys cut Davis on Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Davis appeared to be a favorite for the second-string job at one point earlier this offseason but instead tumbled down the depth chart throughout summer. The Cowboys have minimal experience behind Tony Pollard in the backfield, with their initial 53-man roster otherwise showing Deuce Vaughn and Rico Dowdle. Even if there's some rearranging before Week 1, all signs point to Pollard getting a lot of touches in a Sept. 10 season opener against the Giants.
