The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Dallas Cowboys. Football player Greg Ellis has been replaced in the lineup by football player Chris Canty, who is 15 pounds heavier and better against the run. Ellis has been a starter since 1998 but Canty has started the past three games. Ellis was the league's smallest right defensive end starting in a 3-4, and it's difficult for him to hold up against 330-pound tackles. His playing time has been reduced to about 20 plays per game, mostly on passing downs.
