Daniel Ross, a member of the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested this morning. He is set to face drug and gun charges after being stopped by police.
Ross, a backup defensive lineman for the Cowboys, has not played in a game this season. He was place on the injured reserve with a shoulder issue back in late August.
The Northeastern Mississippi Community College product signed with the Cowboys in 2017. He started his professional career in the CFL, before hopping around practice squads until Dallas signed him to the roster.
From The Dallas Morning News:
Dallas Cowboys lineman Daniel Ross was arrested Wednesday morning after Frisco police found him with marijuana and a gun during a traffic stop, authorities said.
Ross, 26, faces charges of possession of marijuana and unlawfully carrying a weapon, Frisco police spokesman Evan Mattei said. He did not disclose details about the traffic stop that led to the arrest.
Ross played in three games during his first year with the Cowboys, picking up five tackles and a sack. Last season, he got some fairly significant playing time, with 14 tackles (three for loss), a sack, and one forced fumble and fumble recovery on the year.
Per the Morning News report, the Cowboys have not yet released a statement on his arrest.
