Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: To IR with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowdle was placed on IR due to a hip injury Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Dowdle is set to spend the entire 2021 campaign on IR, unless he can reach an injury settlement with the Cowboys. After having played a regular role on special teams as a rookie in 2020, Dowdle will now set his sights toward making a full recovery for the 2022 season.

Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Dowdle (undisclosed) on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The timing of Dowdle's placement on IR rules him out for the entire 2021 season, barring an injury settlement. He was a consistent contributor on special teams across 15 appearances as a rookie, but Dowdle only handled seven carries in that span.

Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Barely sees field as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowdle gained 24 rushing yards on seven carries over 15 games in 2020.

The undrafted rookie out of South Carolina carved out a regular role on special teams as the season went on, amassing 152 yards on kickoff returns, but he saw snaps on offense in only four games and was used sparingly. With Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard both expected back in 2021, Dowdle should remain a depth option for Dallas if he retains his roster spot.

Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Limited action as No. 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowdle carried the ball four times for 11 yards and returned three kickoffs for 88 yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

With Ezekiel Elliott (calf) sidelined, Tony Pollard moved into the lead role in the backfield and erupted for 132 yards from scrimmage and two TDs, leaving Pollard's usual spot as the backup RB and kickoff returner in the hands of Dowdle. The undrafted rookie wasn't able to make much impact on offense, but he did impress as a return man. Even if Elliott returns to the lineup Week 16, Pollard's performance may earn him a bigger workload, potentially opening the door for Dowdle to become the Cowboys' primary kickoff returner to close out the year.

Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Elevates to top backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowdle is expected to serve as the Cowboys' top backup running back behind Tony Pollard with Ezekiel Elliott (calf) inactive for the contest, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

So long as the contest remains competitive, expect Pollard to see the overwhelming share of snaps and touches out of the backfield, as Dowdle -- an undrafted rookie out of South Carolina -- has yet to be entrusted with a meaningful role on offense. Since logging three carries on three snaps in garbage time Week 6 against Arizona, Dowdle's action has come exclusively on special teams over the subsequent seven games.

Cowboys' Rico Dowdle: Could be active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dowdle will likely be activated from the Cowboys' practice squad if Ezekiel Elliott is inactive as expected, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Dowdle saw a little bit of action in the Arizona Monday night debacle in Week 6, carrying the ball three times for 13 yards. In four years at South Carolina, he wasn't the full-time back, peaking at 764 rushing yards in his freshman year.
