Lands on injured reserve

Weber was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a hip flexor, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Weber inked a deal with the Giants just before the start of camp, but he suffered an early injury. The 23-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut since being drafted in the seventh round by the Cowboys in 2019.

Latches on in New York

The Giants signed Weber to a contract Thursday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Weber is still looking for a chance to make his NFL debut. Since joining the Cowboys as a seventh-round pick in 2019, Weber has also logged brief stints with the Chiefs and Packers. His chances to compete in New York will likely be limited to special teams.

Released by Packers

Weber was released by the Packers on Wednesday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Weber signed a reserve/future contract with Green Bay in January, but he'll become a free agent after the team signed linebacker De'Vondre Campbell on Tuesday. The 23-year-old running back hasn't yet seen the field to begin his NFL career.

Signs reserve/future deal

Weber has inked a reserve/future contract with the Packers.

Analysis: Weber joined the Packers' practice squad in November after Dexter Williams suffered a knee injury. He was elevated to the active roster in Week 11, but never saw the field. The 23-year-old will now look to make an impression in Green Bay this offseason.

Moves back to practice squad

Weber reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The Ohio State product was called up to the active roster Saturday with AJ Dillon remaining on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Tyler Ervin (ribs) inactive for Week 12 due to an injury. Weber did not ultimately see any game action during Sunday night's 41-25 win over Chicago, and he remains without a regular-season appearance since entering the NFL in 2019.

Elevates to active roster

The Packers elevated Weber to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: AJ Dillon is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Tyler Ervin (ribs) is considered questionable for Sunday night's game against the Bears. Weber will add depth in the backfield behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. His elevation signals that Ervin may be trending in the wrong direction, but he doesn't figure to play much if Ervin is active.

Headed for practice squad

Weber reverted back to Green Bay's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Weber joined Green Bay's active roster for Week 11 but failed to get on the field. He's yet to play a snap in 2020.

Nov 23, 2020 8:36 PM EST

Elevated for Week 11

Weber was promoted to the Packers' active roster from the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: The 23-year-old joined Green Bay's practice squad earlier in November and will serve as an extra player for Sunday's matchup with Indianapolis. Weber will be the Packers' No. 3 running back behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.

Nov 21, 2020 6:32 PM EST

Heads to Green Bay

The Packers signed Weber to the practice squad Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: The Packers needed depth at running back following news that Dexter Williams suffered a sprained MCL in last week's win over the 49ers. They chose Weber to replace him. The second-year running back out of Ohio State has yet to make his NFL debut, but he'll get a chance to fine-tune his skills on Green Bay's scout team.

Parts ways with Chiefs

The Chiefs cut Weber on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Weber latched on in Kansas City via a reserve/future deal in January, but he'll now lose his roster spot to make room for a wave of undrafted free agents. After having spent most of the 2019 season on Dallas' practice squad, Weber will now be free to look for another depth opportunity.

May 4, 2020 2:56 PM EST

Signs reserve/future contract

Weber signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

Analysis: Weber signed with the Chiefs less than a month ago after spending the majority of the 2019 season on the Cowboys' practice squad. He'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason as he looks to crack the 53-man roster in the fall.

Feb 4, 2020 7:52 PM EST

Joins Chiefs' practice squad

Weber signed with Kansas City's practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Weber joined the Cowboys' practice squad in early September after failing to crack the season opening roster, but he'll now have the chance to make an impression with the Chiefs. The rookie seventh-round pick is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Jan 8, 2020 3:14 PM EST

Lands on Dallas' practice squad

Weber signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Weber didn't survive cut-down day Saturday, but he'll at least be able to stick around in Dallas. The Ohio State product rushed for 2,676 yards and 24 touchdowns over 28 games in college before being selected in the seventh round by the Cowboys in this year's draft.

Sep 3, 2019 9:25 AM EST

Released by the Cowboys

Weber was released by the Cowboys on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: This further reinforces the idea Ezekiel Elliott will be available Week 1, as the Cowboys also released Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn. A sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Weber figures to be a practice-squad candidate should he slip through waivers.

Aug 31, 2019 12:05 PM EST

Likely headed for practice squad

Weber is expected to begin the season on the practice squad, John Owning of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: While fellow rookie Tony Pollard has been allowed to shine in the preseason, Weber has been mostly hidden by the Cowboys, staying on the sidelines while other depth RB options like Jordan Chunn and Darius Jackson get snaps. This points to the front office having already decides the seventh-round pick won't make the 53-man roster, but the draft investment in him would indicate the club would like to slip him through waivers onto the practice squad. Assuming he isn't grabbed by another team along the way, Weber would need injuries at the position to have a chance of seeing regular-season action with the Cowboys this year.

Aug 29, 2019 7:09 AM EST

Returns to practice

The MRI that Weber (knee) recently underwent revealed no ligament damage and the running back returned to practice with full participation Wednesday and Thursday, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: Weber was held out of the last couple days of rookie minicamp earlier this month with a knee injury that at one point was thought to potentially require surgery. The Ohio State product has since returned to both individual and team drills in the first leg of OTAs this week and appears ready to compete for the No. 2 running back job in Dallas. Weber, a seventh-round pick, will primary compete with fellow rookie and fourth-round pick Tony Pollard along with veteran Darius Jackson.

May avoid surgery on knee

Weber (knee) hopes to avoid surgery, but he may eventually need an arthroscopic procedure if his injury doesn't improve with rest, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The rookie seventh-round pick had an MRI on his sore right knee after leaving the field early during Saturday's practice at rookie minicamp. Weber is hoping to compete with Darius Jackson and fellow rookie Tony Pollard (a fourth-round pick) for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind workhorse Ezekiel Elliot. The Cowboys still have plenty of time to bring in veteran competition before training camp, though most of the recognizable names on the market have serious concerns regarding age and/or injury.

May 14, 2019 10:56 AM EST

Leaves with injury

Weber left Saturday's rookie minicamp with a knee injury that will require a MRI, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: The seventh-round pick did attend the afternoon portion of rookie practice, but did not participate so it's possible the injury isn't serious. Weber was supposed to be a fairly impactful member of the Cowboys' backfield as the team attempts to lessen Ezekiel Elliott's workload, so any type of injury could be difficult for both player and team.
