Top Will Grier News

  • Cowboys' Will Grier: Healthy scratch again

    Grier (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Bears, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Grier will be inactive for the second week in a row since starter Dak Prescott's return. With Cooper Rush backing up Prescott, the Cowboys will opt not to dress three quarterbacks.

  • Will Grier: Reverts to practice squad

    Grier reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Grier did not play during Sunday's win over Washington after being elevated from Dallas' practice squad for the third week in a row. The 2019 third-round pick has essentially served as the Cowboy's backup quarterback behind Cooper Rush while starter Dak Prescott (thumb) has been sidelined. However, Grier is no longer eligible for any further practice-squad promotions with Dallas and will need to secure a full-time roster spot in order to suit up for the team again this season.

  • Cowboys' Will Grier: Signs to active roster

    Dallas signed Grier to its 53-man roster Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The Cowboys had already used their allowed three standard practice squad elevations on him in Weeks 2, 3 and 4, so with Dak Prescott (thumb) likely sitting out another game this Sunday, they saw fit to sign Grier to the active roster. The 27-year-old signal caller did not play a snap in any of the three games for which he's been called up so far, and he's just an insurance policy in case Cooper Rush goes down.

  • Cowboys' Will Grier: Called up once more

    Grier was elevated to the active roster Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    This becomes Grier's final standard elevation before the Cowboys are forced to make a decision on his status with the 53-man roster. The third-string backup has yet to see action behind Cooper Rush through two weeks.

  • Will Grier: Back to practice squad

    Grier reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Grier was elevated to the active roster for the second week in a row to back up Cooper Rush. With Dak Prescott (thumb) expected to be out for Week 4 against the Commanders, Grier will likely be elevated once again.

  • Cowboys' Will Grier: Elevated for MNF

    Grier has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Giants.

    Grier will join Dallas' active roster for the second week in a row as the backup to Cooper Rush. Grier didn't see the field in Week 2 against the Bengals while Rush led Dallas to victory sans Dak Prescott (thumb).

  • Will Grier: Back on practice squad

    Grier reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Grier did not see the field this past Sunday after being promoted to Dallas' active roster ahead of the team's win over Cincinnati. The 2019 third-round pick served as the Cowboys' backup quarterback behind Cooper Rush, who went 19 of 31 for 235 yards and one touchdown in place of injured starter Dak Prescott (thumb). Grier will likely see two more such elevations from the team's practice squad with Prescott expected to sit out until at least Week 4 while recovering from thumb surgery.

  • Cowboys' Will Grier: Bumped up to active roster

    The Cowboys elevated Grier from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Cooper Rush is expected to draw the start in place of Dak Prescott (thumb), and Grier will operate as the primary backup. However, Grier may get a chance to showcase his abilities if Rush struggles early on. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier this week that Rush separated from Grier at the end of the preseason due to Grier's hamstring injury, but he would trust either one of them to lead Dallas on Sunday. "We'll be evaluating all options," Jones said. "Those guys know the offense well. They've had a lot of reps in it, and consequently give us our best shot."

  • Will Grier: Joins Dallas' practice squad

    Grier has signed with the Cowboys' practice squad, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Grier was competing with Cooper Rush for the opportunity to back up Dak Prescott under center. The team ultimately opted to cut both and sign them to its practice squad. One of the two will likely be called up to the roster come Week 1, as Prescott is currently the only quarterback on the roster.

  • Will Grier: Waived by Dallas

    The Cowboys waived Grier on Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Grier and Cooper Rush were competing for the top backup spot behind Dak Prescott during training camp, but neither backup will make the team's initial 53-man roster. The Cowboys are expected to bring back one of the two backups via a practice squad deal so he can operate as an emergency option on game days.
