Cowboys sign former Falcons RB Ito Smith | Film Session

The Cowboys continue to say they have to get their running game going. They maintain that two-time rushing champ Ezekiel Elliott can battle through the knee injury that has bothered him for over two months. They keep hinting that Tony Pollard will get more touches. And they just brought in someone who could be seen as something of an insurance policy. The team has signed veteran running back Ito Smith to the practice squad. Smith was a fourth-round draft pick in 2018 by the Falcons, whose head coach at the time was Dan Quinn, now defensive coordinator of the Cowboys. In 35 games with Atlanta, Smith amassed 689 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 175 carries. He also added 55 receptions for 314 yards. The 5-foot-9, 195-pound Southern Mississippi product was waived by the team in April; he’s had week-long stints this season with Arizona and Minnesota. - CowboysWire.USAToday
