Catching Up With the Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday afternoon. Since then, it's been quite the eventful 48 hours for America's Team.

First, it was announced that Tony Romo broke his pinkie and will miss at least four weeks (maybe more), meaning the team is now in the 40-year old hands of back-up quarterback Brad Johnson. Then the news came out yesterday that rookie RB Felix Jones suffered a partially torn hamstring in Sunday's loss and will miss 2-4 weeks. And then today saw two stories break about the 'Boys.

First, the good news: NFL Network's Adam Schefter reported that Dallas traded for Lions' WR Roy Williams in exchange for “at least one first-round pick" (a receiving-corps of Terrell Owens, Williams and Patrick Crayton could be scary; too bad they don't have Romo for a month, huh?).

Now, the bad news (for Cowboys fans, and Pacman): the NFL has suspended Adam 'Pacman' Jones...again.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Jones will miss the next four games, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will determine the final length of the suspension after the Cowboys' game in Washington on Nov. 16.

Jones was involved in an alcohol-related scuffle on Oct. 7 with one of his bodyguards at a private party in Dallas.


Starting QB and second-string RB lost to injury; traded for another number-one WR; lost long-troubled starting CB to NFL suspension. Jeff Pearlman set to begin his sequel tomorrow.
