The Cowboys had three players accept invitations to the 2018 Reeses’ Senior Bowl.

It was announced yesterday that QB Mason Rudolph will not be participating in the events, due to a sprained left foot that will not require surgery.

However, Marcell Ateman and James Washington will be playing in the game, and they will be teamed up once again before the draft.

The Cowboys’ top two receivers are on the south roster, which will be coached by the Houston Texans’ staff.

They will be catching passes from Kurt Benkert (Virginia), Kyle Lauletta (Richmond), Brandon Silvers (Troy) and Mike White (Western Kentucky).

Joining them from the Big 12 are offensive tackle Joseph Noteboom (TCU) and defensive tackle Poona Ford (Texas).

On the North Team, Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) and Josh Allen (Wyoming) are headlining the QBs. OU’s Dimitri Flowers will be playing fullback and Iowa State’s Allen Lazard will be playing wide receiver.

On the defensive side of the ball, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo (Oklahoma) will be lining up at the defensive end position. Joining him will be Kyzir White, the safety from West Virginia to round out the Big 12 participation in the bowl.

The Reeses’ Senior Bowl will have practices January 23, 24 and 25.

The game itself will take place January 27 at 1:30 p.m. Ateman, Rudolph and Washington will return to Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, where they defeated the South Alabama Jaguars 44-7 back in September.

The game will be available on NFL Network and tickets are available for as low as $10 if you have the undesirable urge to visit Mobile.
