Ross will be placed on injured reserve Saturday and miss the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The defensive tackle suffered a hand injury in practice at the beginning of the week, but it's not clear when the shoulder injury occurred. Ross was headed for a rotational role in the Cowboys' front seven at best, but the move to IR does make it more likely impressive UDFA Daniel Wise will find a spot on the 53-man roster.
Ross suffered a hand injury during Monday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ross reportedly continued practicing in some capacity after suffering the hand injury, indicating that it may be minor. The rotational defensive tackle will have just under two weeks to recover before the regular-season opener.
Ross signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Ross played in 13 games with the Cowboys last season and had 14 tackles (six solo) and one sack. The 26-year-old was set to be an exclusive rights free agent and should enter the 2019 season as a depth option at defensive tackle.
Ross had 14 tackles (six solo), one sack and one forced fumble in 13 games this season.
Ross served as a rotational defensive tackle for the Cowboys this year after he was signed off the Chiefs practice squad in November 2017. The 24-year-old is set to become an exclusive-rights free agent, so he'll be back in Dallas in 2019 if the team tenders him an offer.
Ross (calf) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Redskins, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ross was able to practice in full Wednesday after being limited to start the week. With Maliek Collins (knee) listed as questionable for Thanksgiving Day and David Irving (ankle) ruled out, Ross could be in store for an uptick in snaps as part of the Cowboys' defensive-line rotation.
Ross (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ross did not practice at all this week, so his lack of availability is unsurprising. The depth defensive tackle will remain sidelined as he nurses a strained calf suffered during a Week 10 win over the Eagles. With Maliek Collins (knee) listed as questionable and Antwaun Woods (concussion) listed as doubtful, the Cowboys could have trouble providing depth at the left defensive tackle position during Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.
Ross (calf) is considered "day-to-day" due to a strained calf suffered during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Ross reportedly tweaked his calf before Sunday's win over the Eagles began, and he exited the divisional contest early. It's likely that the depth defensive tackle's Week 11 availability will be determined by the extent to which he is able to participate in practice. If Ross is unable to suit up, Antwaun Woods will serve as the only backup to starter Maliek Collins.
Ross exited Sunday's game early due to a calf strain, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ross has operated as a depth defensive tackle this season, totaling nine tackles on the season to date. He was seen with crutches on the sideline after his injury and could miss some time with the issue. He should be considered questionable for the time being for the Week 11 game against Atlanta.
