  Cowboys | Dallas parts with Darius Jackson    Fri Aug 30, 02:46 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Darius X. Jackson was waived Friday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: Jackson has great measureables, but has bounced on and off of the Dallas and Cleveland rosters. Even with Ezekiel Elliott not reporting, the team couldn't find room for Jackson.

  Cowboys | Darius Jackson leads backfield    Sat Jul 27, 09:51 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Darius X. Jackson worked as the primary first-team running back during practice Saturday, July 27.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys have two rookies and Jackson behind Ezekiel Elliott, and Jackson has the most experience in the organization after the team drafted him in the sixth round in 2016, so this makes sense. He tested out very athletic even by NFL terms but hasn't been able to stick or get playing time in the NFL yet.

  Packers | Green Bay signs Darius Jackson    Mon Sep 3, 05:09 PM

Free-agent RB Darius X. Jackson (Cowboys) was signed by the Green Bay Packers off the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad Monday, Sept. 3. CB Herb Waters was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Jackson did have a spot on the Cowboys practice squad but the Packers wanted him on the 53-man roster. They need running back depth behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery...especially with Aaron Jones suspended the first two games of the regular season.

  Cowboys | Dallas puts eight on practice squad    Sun Sep 2, 05:14 PM

Free-agent WR Dres Anderson, T Jake Campos, RB Jordan Chunn, RB Darius X. Jackson, WR Lance Lenoir, Jr., CB Donovan Olumba, LB Kyle Queiro and DE Charles Tapper were signed to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad Sunday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Lenoir and Anderson are names to file away if only because the Cowboys don't have any entrenched starters on their subpar wide receiver depth chart.

  Cowboys | Three signed by Cowboys    Wed May 30, 10:39 AM

Free-agent RB Darius X. Jackson (Browns), WR Mekale McKay (Bears) and DT Antwaun Woods (Titans) were signed to undisclosed deals by the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, May 30. DT DeQuinton Osborne and OG Jay Robertson were released.

Footballguys view: Jackson was a sixth-round pick out of Eastern Michigan for the Cowboys back in 2016. He was with the Browns last year but finds himself back in Dallas vying for a spot on the depth chart. Measuring in at 6' 220 pounds, Jackson has elite athleticism and runs with build up power. He's not that instinctive as a runner and needs to stand out on special teams to make the roster.

  Browns | Two moves made by Browns    Thu Jun 1, 05:23 PM

Free-agent RB Terrence Magee (Seahawks) was signed by the Cleveland Browns Thursday, June 1. In a corresponding move, RB Darius Jackson (knee) was waived with an injury designation.

Footballguys view: There's not much behind starter Isaiah Crowell and backup/change-of-pace back Duke Johnson Jr. Magee is an instinctive runner but won't 'wow' you with his skill set.

  Cowboys | Darren McFadden activated from NFI list    Tue Dec 13, 04:43 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (elbow) was activated to the active roster from the Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Dec. 13. RB Darius Jackson was subsequently released.

Footballguys view: McFadden is back in action, but his role should be quite small. He's the change-of-pace back behind starter Ezekiel Elliott. If something were to happen to Elliott, the team would likely use a RBBC featuring Alfred Morris and McFadden.

Footballguys view: One-half of the Cowboys starting secondary is out, which should elevate Joe Flacco to streamer status this week.

The Dallas Cowboys have declared SS Barry Church, OT Chaz Green, RB Darius Jackson, LB Mark Nzeocha, CB Morris Claiborne, LB Ryan Davis, QB Tony Romo inactive for Week 9.

Footballguys view: With one-half of the Cowboys secondary out, the Browns passing has a reasonable chance of success with Corey Coleman back in the mix and Cody Kessler playing surprisingly well.

The Dallas Cowboys have declared OT Chaz Green, RB Darius Jackson, WR Dez Bryant, LB Kyle Wilber, RB Lance Dunbar, CB Orlando Scandrick, QB Tony Romo inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: It was thought that Bryant might return this week, but with the Cowboys' bye up next week, they are going to play it safe.

The Dallas Cowboys have declared OT Chaz Green, RB Darius Jackson, DL David Irving, WR Dez Bryant, RB Lance Dunbar, CB Orlando Scandrick, QB Tony Romo inactive for Week 5.

Footballguys view: Terrance Williams, Brice Butler, and Cole Beasley will share the wide receiver duties with Bryant out and Jason Witten could get an extra target or two. Bryant is probably going to sit in Week 6 with the Cowboys Week 7 bye up after that.

The Dallas Cowboys have declared RB Darius Jackson, WR Dez Bryant, OT La'el Collins, LB Mark Nzeocha, CB Orlando Scandrick, QB Tony Romo, OT Tyron Smith inactive for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Bryant made the trip but isn't healthy enough to play. Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams should get more targets today against a generous 49ers pass defense.
