Darius Jackson: Resurfaces on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts signed Jackson to the practice squad Wednesday.

Jackson claims the spot on Indianapolis' practice squad, which opened up with Daurice Fountain being promoted to the 53-man roster. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2018, when he spent time with both the Packers and Cowboys.

Darius Jackson: Done in Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts released Jackson on Sunday.

Jackson spent time on the practice squads of Dallas, Tampa Bay and Indianapolis last season, but he didn't have any opportunities for on-field action. Since entering the league as a sixth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2016, Jackson has appeared in four career games between Dallas and Green Bay.

Colts' Darius Jackson: Remains with Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

Jackson spent time on the Cowboys', Colts' and Buccaneers' practice squads early in the season before rejoining the Colts' unit in mid-November. The 26-year-old has six carries for 16 yards in four appearances between Dallas and Green Bay since being a sixth-round pick in 2016.

Darius Jackson: Shuffles to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed with the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.

Jackson last played in Week 17 of the 2018 season for the Cowboys, and he rushed six times for 16 yards. Reserve running back Jordan Wilkins is battling an ankle injury, so Jackson will join the organization in case it's a long-term issue.

Darius Jackson: Let go by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was released off the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson signed with Tampa Bay's practice squad last week but will now be looking for a new team. The 25-year-old was a sixth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2016, and he's already spent time on the Cowboys, Colts and Buccaneers practice squads this season.

Darius Jackson: Hooks up with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was signed to the Buccaneers' practice squad Wednesday, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Jackson entered the league as a sixth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2016 and has gone on to play in four career games while also spending time on the Colts' practice squad. He'll serve as organizational depth for the time being and would presumably have a chance to jump to the active roster were injuries to strike Ronald Jones or Peyton Barber.

Darius Jackson: Cut from Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was cut from the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.

Jackson originally joined the practice squad Friday. The 25-year-old has seen a fall from grace since operating as the top running back for the Cowboys in training camp. Jackson has the ability to at least provide a team with depth at running back, but for now he'll have to find another opportunity elsewhere in the league.

Darius Jackson: Joins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed to the Colts' practice squad Friday.

Jackson was previously on the Cowboys' practice squad before getting let go. All in all he has suited up for four career NFL games, compiling 16 yards on six carries in the process. With four running backs on the Colts' depth chart, Jackson has the potential to be called up if one of them ultimately misses time due to injury.

Darius Jackson: Cut from Cowboys' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was released from Dallas' practice squad Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jackson originally signed to the practice squad Sep. 10. The 25-year-old served as the team's top back at the start of training camp while Ezekiel Elliott held out, but he ultimately didn't make the 53-man roster. He'll now have to find another opportunity elsewhere.

Darius Jackson: Lands on Dallas' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson was originally waived by the Cowboys on Aug. 30. The 25-year-old served as the top back for Dallas at the start of training camp with Ezekiel Elliott holding out, but he ultimately didn't make the 53-man roster. Jackson is now able to find a spot on the practice squad after Dallas called up linebacker Chris Covington to the active roster.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Waived by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys waived Jackson on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 2016 sixth-round pick has bounced between the Cowboys and other teams over the last few seasons, mostly spending time on the practice squad. Jackson briefly served as the first-team running back at the start of training camp, but he was surpassed by Tony Pollard and Alfred Morris during the preseason.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Co-leads team in carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson carried six times for 16 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys.

Jackson tied for the team lead in carries in the exhibition opener, although his mark of 2.7 yards per tote was nothing to write home about. He was also the team's third running back to enter the game, behind rookies Tony Pollard and Mike Weber. Factor in the eventual return of Ezekiel Elliot and Jackson is fighting an uphill battle to make the team this season.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Working with first team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was the primary first-team running back during Saturday's practice, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Jackson appears to be the preliminary leader for snaps among the Cowboys' running back room with Ezekiel Elliot (contract dispute) holding out. The 2016 sixth-round pick is competing with rookies Tony Pollard and Mike Weber for the No. 2 running back role in Dallas, though it's worth noting that the team would almost certainly rely on a committee approach if Elliott were to miss any time.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Facing competition from rookies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys drafted Tony Pollard (fourth round) and Mike Weber (seventh round) to compete with Jackson for depth roles in the backfield, Patrick Conn of WFAA ABC Dallas reports.

Weber was a between-the-tackles grinder at Ohio State, while Pollard mostly made his impact at Memphis on receptions and kick returns. Both players give Jackson viable competition for the No. 2 running back job vacated by Rod Smith, who remains unsigned as an unrestricted free agent. The winner of the battle will have some handcuff appeal for Ezekiel Elliott owners, though Dallas likely would turn to a committee if the superstar runner were to miss time. Jackson spent most of 2018 on the Dallas practice squad, playing two games for the Packers in September and two for the Cowboys in December. He's a workout warrior who only had one productive season at Eastern Michigan before coming off the board in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Silent in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson did not play a single snap during Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams. He finished up the regular season with six carries for 16 yards across two games with the Cowboys.

Jackson failed to bring in his lone target during the 2018 season. He spent the first four weeks with the Packers but did not log a single snap before being waived by the team. On Dec. 22, Jackson joined Dallas' active roster and played a depth role during the team's final two games of the regular season. The 25-year-old, who was originally drafted by the Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, likely will need to impress on special teams this offseason to earn a job in 2019.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Will get some run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson and Rod Smith are expected to split reps at running back Sunday against the Giants with Ezekiel Elliott slated to be rested for the contest, team sources tell Jane Slater of NFL Network.

After receiving a promotion from the practice squad Dec. 22, Jackson was limited to a special-teams role in his 2018 debut with Dallas in last week's win over the Buccaneers. With the Cowboys clinching the NFC East with the victory and now locked in as the conference's No. 4 seed in the playoffs regardless of how the games play out Sunday, there's little incentive for Dallas to expose Elliott to injury in a meaningless regular-season finale. That will open the door for Jackson to get a chance to showcase his skills, though his brief time on the active roster likely means that Smith, who has suited up in all 15 games as Elliott's top backup, will earn the larger share of the backfield touches.

Cowboys' Darius Jackson: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Jackson will provide depth to the Cowboys' backfield, although it seems unlikely he'll surpass Ezekiel Elliott or Rod Smith for carries unless something drastic occurs. Jackson's role could become more prominent in Week 17 if the Cowboys clinch a playoff spot Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Darius Jackson: Back with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson spent the preseason with the Cowboys before ultimately being released during final roster cut downs. The Packers scooped him up, and Jackson appeared in two games for Green Bay, though he failed to register an offensive statistic.

Darius Jackson: Cut by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was waived by the Packers on Saturday.

Jackson played two games for the Packers but did not record an offensive statistic. Tyler Lancaster will take Jackson's spot on Green Bay's 53-man roster.

Packers' Darius Jackson: Heads to Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers are signing Jackson, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson, who the Cowboys took 216th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, gives the Packers some needed backfield depth behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery, with Aaron Jones set to miss two games out of the gate as he serves a suspension.
