Ex-Cowboys Star Ruled Out by Giants Ahead of Dallas-New York Opener

The Dallas Cowboys will not play against an old fan favorite as the New York Giants ruled him out for Week 1. 

Cole Beasley joined the Giants, got cut, and returned to the practice squad.

Beasley's undisclosed injury has placed him on the injured reserve, preventing him from being active as a practice squad member. 

The Giants announced the signing of WR Cam Sims from the Washington Commanders on their website.

Dallas has faced Beasley before, but this would be the first time he plays for a rival team in the same conference.

Dallas can relax now, while the Giants consider using Sims from the practice squad for an important game.

Beasley's career is a good example for NFL prospects without college hype. Beasley had impressive college seasons at SMU but was not drafted in the 2012 NFL draft.

Dallas signed Beasley as an undrafted free agent and he made the 53-man roster. As a rookie, he caught 15 passes for 128 receiving yards on offense.

Beasley's career success grew slowly but steadily. He improved his receiving yards each season from 2012 to 2016, reaching his best year with Dallas in 2016. 

He had two good years, but then he decided to join the Buffalo Bills. Beasley had his best three-year performance with 231 receptions, 2438 yards, and 11 touchdowns from 2019-2021.
