Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday during a conference call with Arizona media that one of the reasons the Cowboys drafted RB Ezekiel Elliott was because of how much Ohio State coach Urban Meyer touted his effort without the ball. "His coaches at Ohio State stood on the the table for him in that regard," Garrett said. "Urban Meyer told us he's the best player he's ever had when he doesn't have the ball in his hands. He's demonstrated that to us over the course of the last year or so. That's just who he is."

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said on a conference call that he's addressed Ezekiel Elliott's effort on the two plays from Sunday night's game with the star running back. "You're honest, you're very clear with what the expectations are and you learn from them and move forward."

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald turned the tables on the Dallas media after answering questions and asked if Orlando Scandrick practiced. When told he did, Fitzgerald called Scandrick one of the best corners in the NFL working the slot.

Cowboys' Elliott admits to 'bad effort' in loss

While admitting he was frustrated during the Cowboys' loss to Denver on Sunday, running back Ezekiel Elliott said there's no excuse for his lack of effort on two key plays.

Ezekiel Elliott on his controversial lack of effort plays in loss to Denver. "Obviously I was very frustrated, but there's no excuse for the lack of effort I showed on tape. I just can't do that, being one of the leaders of this team. I'm a guy that people count on here so I can't put that on film. We addressed it in house. I'm definitely not that type of player and that's definitely not who I am for this team. I was frustrated and I wasn't myself."

Cornerback Nolan Carroll will not practice today because of a concussion suffered last week against Denver and his availability for Monday's game at Arizona is in doubt. Jason Garrett said Carroll is not at The Star because the medical staff did not want him in meetings. Garrett was unsure of the degree of Carroll's concussion.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona coach Bruce Arians is looking at the production of the Cowboys' offense last week against Denver as an anomaly. “You never prepare for just one week of what you see on tape because scoreboards indicate a lot of things that happen during games,” Arians said, “and we anticipate what they've done for the last year and a half, not just what happened last Sunday.”

Barnwell: Can Jason Witten continue his crazy start?

It's unlikely Witten is going to lead the league in receptions, although it's hardly his fault. The rest of Cowboys' loaded offense is likely to steal some targets.
