The team was optimistic last week that Darnold would be able to play at Philadelphia and gave him first-team snaps last Wednesday and Thursday.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) walks off the field after throwing an interception caught by Green Bay Packers' Chandon Sullivan in the first half of an NFL football game in Arlington, Texas, Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019. Many analysts were talking about this team cruising through the NFC East.
When asked about Garrett being among the betting favorites to be fired during the season, Jones said "Don't bet any money on that happening, you'll lose it".
Despite losing two straight games and hearing increased grumbling from fans, the Dallas Cowboys are apparently not close to thinking about a head coaching change. We played two that have it together better.
Dallas also signed linebacker Jaylon Smith and offensive tackle La'el Collins to long-term extensions, while defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence was retained to the tune of a five-year deal worth $105 million. The second-year player is emerging as a significant threat. He left Sunday's game against the Eagles with a shoulder injury.
"Well, first of all, the narrative about his financial [future] as opposed to how he's playing is, frankly, laughable", Jones said. He was held without a TD pass in Week 4 and tossed three interceptions in Week 5 - both losses to elite opponents. Dallas has won the turnover battle just once, in the 35-17 win over the Giants in the opener when the Cowboys led 35-10 late in the third quarter.
