Mailbag: Who Wins Rookie Of The Year? Timelines For Wilcox & Collins?

If you had to cast your vote today for the Offensive Rookie of the Year. Who would you choose and why?

Bryan: I would select Prescott and no disrespect to Elliott, but I didn't expect this at all from the quarterback. He could have played poorly and this team would have been in trouble regardless how well Elliott played. As much as Elliott has been a difference maker -- Prescott has been even better. 

David:How about we just give the Cowboys two awards? Dak can be NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Zeke can be NFL Offensive Player of the Year. Both players are deserving of accolades, but I just can't get over how well Dak has played coming from the third-string as a mid-round draft pick. This is not meant as disrespect toward Zeke, but I think the Cowboys would still have a winning record if Alfred Morris or Darren McFadden was their starting running back. I don't think you could say the same about quarterback – at least not during the 10 weeks while Tony Romo was injured.


I just read about the probable return of Mo Claiborne this regular season. But, I haven't heard much about J.J. Wilcox and La'el Collins. What's the timetable for them? Will they be back for the post season?

Bryan: Wilcox should practice more this week and be ready for Monday. Collins is pushing along and hopefully he will be ready for the playoffs. 

David:Given that J.J. started practicing last week, I'd be surprised if he's not ready for this game against Detroit. Collins is interesting, because he's one of two guys that's eligible to return from the injured reserve. If the Cowboys activate him, I doubt he'd return to the starting lineup – but he'd certainly be a boost to the depth on the offensive line.
