Cowboys’ Jerry Jones is ‘pretty positive’ Cole Beasley will play vs. Rams
Jerry Jones’ Dallas Cowboys are in the middle of their preparation for a do-or-die matchup in the NFC Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams. Needless to say, the Cowboys need all hands on deck in order for them to have a bigger chance of upsetting the Rams on the road, though, wide receiver Cole Beasley is still a significant question mark for the upcoming contest.
Beasley reportedly did not practice on Tuesday, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic. That said, Jones, during a recent appearance on 105.3 The Fan, expressed his optimism for the chances of Beasley and Tavon Austin to be on the field this coming Saturday in Hollywood.
“I’m positive. Very positive about both,” he said. “That’s easy for me to say, but we’ll see. This is the equivalent of a Wednesday. Probably tentative today, but they’ll get some work in. Right now, I’m pretty positive about both those guys playing in the game.”
Beasley sustained an ankle injury in last week’s 24-22 home win over the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round. Beasley managed to play through that injury in the Seattle game and finished with 28 receiving yards on three catches and three targets. That he was able to take the field and show up even after injuring his ankle in the first quarter of that contest was a positive sign for the product of the SMU Mustangs program.
Cole Beasley finished the 2018 NFL regular season with 672 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 65 receptions.
Beasley is set to become a free agent at the end of this season.
