  • Cowboys' Sewo Olonilua: Moves to injured reserve

    Olonilua (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Olonilua was already ruled out for the preseason, and the shift to injured reserve will prevent him from taking the field in 2021, unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team. He appeared in two games for the Cowboys last season and exclusively played special teams.

  • Cowboys' Sewo Olonilua: Will miss preseason

    Olonilua (neck) is set to miss the preseason due to an injury sustained in the Hall of Fame Game against Pittsburgh, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Coach Mike McCarthy said he doesn't have an exact timetable for Olonilua's return, but that "it's going to be a while." The second-year pro was enjoying a strong training camp prior to suffering his current injury.

  • Cowboys' Sewo Olonilua: Sidelined indefinitely

    Olonilua sustained a neck injury during Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Steelers.

    The Cowboys haven't yet established a timetable for Olonilua's return, but the team expects him to miss considerable time. The second-year fullback had impressed early in camp and recorded a 17-yard reception prior to his injury Thursday.

  • Cowboys' Sewo Olonilua: Bumped up from practice squad

    The Cowboys signed Olonilua from their practice squad Saturday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    The TCU product was activated last week for a win over the 49ers as well, though he ultimately didn't see any offensive role. Olonilua is likely to fill a special-teams position Week 16 against the Eagles unless injuries above him on the running back depth chart call for an uptick in offensive involvement.

  • Sewo Olonilua: Goes back to practice squad

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

    The TCU product saw his only action on special teams, garnering 25 snaps during a 41-33 win over San Francisco. Olonilua has been uninvolved in the ground attack for Dallas after collecting 537 rushing yards and eight rushing scores for the Horned Frogs last year.

  • Sewo Olonilua: Dips back down to practice squad

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

    The 22-year-old was added to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Steelers, though he ultimately was made inactive for the contest. Olonilua remains without a regular-season appearance since initially joining the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in late April.

  • Cowboys' Sewo Olonilua: Rises to active roster

    The Cowboys elevated Olonilua to the active roster Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    The undrafted rookie out of TCU looks poised to make his NFL debut. Olonilua played fullback in college and is listed at 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, so he's expected to fill a similar role Sunday against the Steelers. Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is expected to sit out, too, so Olonilua could handle a couple of touches in short-yardage situations, while Tony Pollard handles a bulk of the backfield reps.

  • Sewo Olonilua: Gets practice squad spot

    The Cowboys signed Olonilua to the practice squad Sunday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Olonilua spent the offseason with Dallas after having gone undrafted in April. The rookie fullback out of TCU could be a candidate for activation if he can quickly impress on the practice squad, as the Cowboys don't currently have a fullback on the active roster.
