2. Rashaan Evans
In the wake of Leighton Vander Esch's neck injury -- which will keep him sidelined for roughly 4-6 weeks -- Dallas hosted several linebackers for a workout on Wednesday to help replace him.
The Cowboys settled on Rashaan Evans, signing him to the practice squad on Wednesday.
Evans, 27, was a first-round draft pick (22nd overall) by the Tennessee Titans in 2018. He spent the first four years of his career there before joining the Atlanta Falcons in 2022, where he played every game last season and appeared in 98% of the team's defensive snaps.
Evans spent some time on the Eagles' practice last month before joining Dallas. It's hard to envision him suiting up on Monday, however, given that he only has a few days to practice, learn the defense and get ready for the big game. He also hasn't played in an actual contest yet this season, so it would be hard to trust him in such a pivotal one.
He seems more like a depth piece for now, but that could easily change with the Cowboys' bye week coming up. If he plays well in practice and proves he's worthy of a roster spot, he could find himself on the 53-man roster when Dallas hosts the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
But until then, potentially rushing him into a game situation before he's ready wouldn't make much sense.
