Jerry Jones confirmed the Cowboys have added former quarterback Jon Kitna to their staff. The team, though, has not made any decisions about who will call plays or what titles Kitna and Kellen Moore will carry next season.

“We’re still in the throes of evaluation,” Jones said, via David Helman of the team website. “We’re in no hurry.”

Fantasy Impact:

With Kitna on board, the Cowboys likely won’t hire anyone else outside the organization, the story said. Garrett could return to being the play-caller. Jones said Garrett’s involvement in the offense “could be more or less.” Garrett called the plays in 2011 and 2012, his first two full seasons as head coach, before turning it over to Bill Callahan. Scott Linehan replaced Callahan as the play-caller in 2014, but the Cowboys fired Linehan as offensive coordinator last week, the story continued.

Cole Beasley: Honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to.

Fantasy Impact:

Beasley is about to become a free agent and based on this tweet it seems he may not be back with the Cowboys. Beasley went on to say he hasn't been a huge priority when it comes to catches. "Maybe that will change but I’m not sure. More balls come my way in 2 minute drill where nothing is planned," Beasley's tweet continued.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz should have no long term issues with his back

Carson Wentz and his doctors can’t “pinpoint exactly when” his back injury happened. The medical staff discovered the fracture after the Eagles’ loss to the Cowboys on Dec. 9.

The Eagles starting quarterback missed the final five games, including two in the postseason, though the Eagles kept him on the 53-player roster in hopes he would heal in time to return this season.

Rest and rehab will heal the fracture, without Wentz needing surgery.

Related players: Nick Foles

Fantasy Impact:

Wentz's long term status with the Eagles appears secure. The Birds are not expected to bring back Foles, who led the team to the Super Bowl last year and then an unlikely playoff berth with a late rally this season.

Cowboys playing to win next Sunday against the New York Giants?

Jerry Jones: “Absolutely. We’re all-out. We’ve got work to do. We’ve got some work to do out here, I think we’ll all agree. We don’t want to, if we can, go into the playoff with dangling participles — loose ends.”

Related players: Ezekiel Elliot, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper

Fantasy Impact:

With the division wrapped up, the Cowboys don't feel giving guys rest is the smart thing to do in Week 17. For those with Week 17 fantasy games, this will be something to monitor as it's still hard to believe the Cowboys stud players will get full workloads in a meaningless game.
