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 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 signing 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 offers any contract.
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 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.
