Rico Dowdle (hip) placed on season-ending IR, per beat reporter

Dallas Cowboys RB Rico Dowdle (hip) suffered a hip injury that has placed him on Injured Reserve (IR), effectively ending his season, per beat reporter Michael Gehlken.

Fantasy Impact

Dowdle has shown flashes in the preseason and would've been the RB3 for the Cowboys behind Ezekiel Elliot and Tony Pollard. Instead, he will miss the season on IR with a hip injury, opening up more opportunities for undrafted rookies Brenden Knox and JaQuan Hardy to play against the Jaguars in Preseason Week 3 and compete for a final 53-man roster spot.
