Sewo Olonilua: Bumped up from practice squad

Olonilua was activated from the Cowboys' practice squad Saturday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The TCU product was activated last week for a win over the 49ers as well, though he ultimately didn't see any offensive role. Olonilua is likely to fill a special-teams position Week 16 against the Eagles unless injuries above him on the running back depth chart call for an uptick in offensive involvement.

Sewo Olonilua: Dips back down to practice squad

Olonilua reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 22-year-old was added to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Steelers, though he ultimately was made inactive for the contest. Olonilua remains without a regular-season appearance since initially joining the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in late April.

Sewo Olonilua: Rises to active roster

The Cowboys elevated Olonilua to the active roster Saturday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of TCU looks poised to make his NFL debut. Olonilua played fullback in college and is listed at 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, so he's expected to fill a similar role Sunday against the Steelers. Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is expected to sit out, too, so he could handle a couple of touches in short-yardage situations, while Tony Pollard handles a bulk of the backfield reps.

Sewo Olonilua: Gets practice squad spot

The Cowboys signed Olonilua to the practice squad Sunday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Olonilua spent the offseason with Dallas after having gone undrafted in April. The rookie fullback out of TCU could be a candidate for activation if he can quickly impress on the practice squad, as the Cowboys don't currently have a fullback on the active roster.
