Televised interview with Cowboys LB Tevin Elliott about knee injury

The Cowboys have agreed to terms on a three-year, $17.8 million contract with LB Tevon Elliott, according to multiple reports.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Schein are reporting the deal was reached in the hours after the Cowboys’ 31-20 loss to the Colts.

Elliott was injured in the second quarter and left the game.

He had a procedure to remove a plate from his right knee after the game and underwent a second procedure to address swelling in his right thigh.

Elliott did not practice Wednesday and will miss the final three games of the regular season and the playoffs.

The Cowboys will pay $1.8M in incentives in 2019, $1M in 2020 and $1 million in 2021, according the reports.

Elliott is the third Cowboys player in as many seasons to be cut in the same offseason.

He was cut by the Cardinals and Seahawks after missing all of 2017 and 2018 with injuries.
