Dallas moves on from Kellen Moore

The Dallas Cowboys announced that they have cut Kellen Moore and promoted undrafted rookie tight end Blake Jarwin from their practice squad to take his place on the active roster. Moore entered training camp this offseason as Dak Prescott's backup, despite missing all of last season with a broken fibula.

Moore was the backup for the first six weeks of the season and did not need to take a single offensive snap. However, he was inactive for last week's game against the San Francisco 49ers as undrafted rookie Cooper Rush served as the backup.

With Rush having taken over the backup role, Dallas having two kickers on their roster and Jarwin about to be poached from the practice squad, Dallas had no need for a third quarterback. Cowboys.com beat writer Nick Eatman does think that Moore could be brought back by being added to the practice squad.

Cardinals put Carson Palmer on IR

The Arizona Cardinals put Carson Palmer on injured reserve due to his broken arm, meaning that he will miss at least eight weeks.

Palmer would be able to be designated to return to the team for the December 24 game against the New York Giants in Week 16. On Monday head coach Bruce Arians said that if the quarterback was put on injured reserve that, “we'll definitely save a spot for him to come back.”

Aaron Rodgers discusses surgery details

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers provided detailed information from his October 19th surgery on his fractured right collarbone during a Thursday morning tapping of TBS's “Conan.” Rodgers, who was wearing a sling on arm, told host Conan O'Brien that doctors had to use screws to repair his collarbone, saying “But I'm good now. Thirteen screws later and here I am.”

ESPN reached out to the Packers star via text message to get clarity on his comments regarding this information. The Packers quarterback joking responded, saying that “It's TV, Sometimes you exaggerate, And then sometimes, you tell truth.” Rodgers also said during his appearance on the show that he would be returning to Green Bay on Monday after spending this time in Los Angeles to recuperate from his surgery.
