 Latest Cowboys Player Notes
Jul 19 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott had the investigation into his alleged assault suspended on Wednesday by the Dallas Police Department, which cited a lack of witnesses and an inability to contact the victim. "(The Dallas Police Department has) made several attempts to contact the victim through various ways but at this time have not been able to make contact," the police said in a statement. The alleged incident occurred at Clutch Bar in Dallas late Sunday night and left a 30-year-old man hospitalized with a nose injury, according to a police report. No arrests were made, and police did not name any suspects.


Jul 18 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott is appealing a misdemeanor conviction for a speeding citation issued in early April, according to court documents. Elliott's Dodge Charger was clocked on April 4 at 100 mph in Frisco, Texas, a clear 30 mph above the speed limit on the Dallas North Tollway. The appeal bond was posted Friday and the case was forwarded to the Collin County, Texas, court on Monday, the Dallas Morning News reported.


Jul 18 2017 - Lucky Whitehead
  WR/KR Lucky Whitehead announced the return of his beloved dog that had been held for ransom. "Look who made it home safely!!!" Whitehead posted with a short video of his dog, Blitz, on Snapchat early Tuesday morning. "THANKS EVERYONE."


Jul 17 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys was involved in a late-night altercation at a Dallas bar, according to multiple reports Monday morning. A Dallas Police Department spokesperson told Mike Fisher of 105.3 FM The Fan in Dallas and ESPN's Adam Schefter that no arrests were made in connection with the incident, which took place at the Clutch Bar and Restaurant on Sunday night. A source also confirmed to the Dallas Morning News that Elliott was involved in the altercation. Elliott, 21, and a bouncer reportedly were involved in the incident. Officers were dispatched to the bar around 9:40 p.m. and a 30-year-old man said he was physically assaulted but could not identify who assaulted him, according to Dallas police. The man was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


Jul 14 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott is expected to respond next week to a report from the NFL on the league investigation into a 2016 domestic violence accusation for which the Dallas Cowboys' star could face a one- or two-game suspension. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the possibility of suspension Friday although the NFL denied it made a decision on a course of disciplinary action. Schefter said the sense around the Cowboys was a "short" suspension would be levied. The NFL personal conduct policy affords the option of up to a six-game suspension for first-time offenders even if they're not convicted of a crime or face legal punishment. The length of the suspension can be reduced based on mitigating factors. In July 2016, Elliott was questioned by authorities. But even after Elliott, 21, was cleared of any legal wrongdoing after the Columbus, Ohio, city prosecutor's office determined there wasn't enough substance to pursue charges after a lengthy investigation, the NFL began its own probe and declined a status update in January and again in February during commissioner Roger Goodell's state of the league address in Houston.


Jul 5 2017 - Damien Wilson
  LB Damien Wilson was arrested during a Fourth of July celebration on Tuesday and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to Frisco (Texas) Police. Wilson was arrested after he "intentionally backed his truck into a female while parking" at Toyota Stadium, home of FC Dallas of Major League Soccer. The 24-year-old Wilson then "brandished a rifle at another male, causing him to be in fear," according to the report. Wilson was released on a $10,000 bond for each count. Wilson recorded 34 tackles and a half-sack in 16 games last season.


Jul 4 2017 - Darren McFadden
  RB Darren McFadden revealed over social media that three relatives were among those injured over the weekend in a shooting at a nightclub in Little Rock, Ark.According to multiple reports, 28 people were injured in the shooting at the Power Ultra Lounge on Saturday morning. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening. "The other night, while at home, I received a call from my nephew that there was a shooting at the club (Power Ultra Lounge) where he and some of my relatives were," the 29-year-old McFadden said in a Twitter message on Monday night. "He told me that he got shot, many other people were shot and that some of my relatives were among those shot. Out of concern for all of the people affected by this horrible tragedy, I went down to the scene to check on my relatives and to offer any help I could."


Jun 28 2017 - David Irving
  DE David Irving was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's policy on the use of performance-enhancing drugs, the league announced Wednesday. Irving is able to participate in all offseason and preseason practices, but won't be eligible to return to the Cowboys' roster until Oct. 2. Irving recorded three of his four sacks during the final month of the 2016 season.


Jun 6 2017 - Zac Dysert
  QB Zac Dysert was among three players recently released by the Cardinals. He subsequently was picked up off of waivers by the Cowboys on Monday. The signing of veteran QB Blaine Gabbert to a one-year, free-agent deal made it unlikely Dysert would have a realistic chance to break camp with the Cardinals as its third-string quarterback behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.


May 31 2017 - Rico Gathers
  TE Rico Gathers gets a lot reps behind Jason Witten because of injuries to James Hanna and Geoff Swaim. He gets starters reps when Witten takes Wednesdays off to rest. The Cowboys are doing their best to get the former college basketball player up to speed and ready to play. Coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott spent more than 30 minutes after practice with him during red zone work Wednesday. He caught three touchdown passes from Prescott in practice.


May 31 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott is practicing again during the second week of Cowboys' organized team activities. Elliott was held out of last week's OTAs after being involved in a minor car accident as a passenger, but returned to the practice field this week. "Zeke loves to practice," coach Jason Garrett said. "He loves football. He is champing at the bit. Even when he couldn't practice last week he was involved in the walk throughs. You can see the passion in his face and the bounce in his step. He loves being out there and he is getting better and better every day." Elliott, 21, is coming off a terrific rookie season in which he led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns.


May 25 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott missed a second consecutive day of voluntary workouts with the Dallas Cowboys after being involved in a car accident. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters that Elliott also would not practice Thursday and would return next week as he deals with some "body soreness, neck soreness" because of the car accident Sunday night. Garrett said Elliott was the passenger in a car that was rear-ended, but the head injury is not serious.


May 24 2017 - Ryan Switzer
  WR Ryan Switzer, a fourth-round pick, got to work with the first team with Cole Beasley and Lucky Whitehead held out of practice with hamstring injuries and quickly impressed. Switzer seemingly caught everything thrown his way, dazzling with a one-handed twirling reception from QB Dak Prescott. Switzer looked like a natural fill in for Beasley in the slot, which is actually why the Cowboys drafted the North Carolina product in addition to serving as the team's primary punt returner. "Yeah, he did a nice job," coach Jason Garrett said. "He actually got more work today because Lucky was out for part of practice today as well.''


May 24 2017 - Sean Lee
  LB Sean Lee will not practice on consecutive days during the offseason, so he was held out practice Wednesday after working out Tuesday.


May 24 2017 - Benson Mayowa
  DE Benson Mayowa was held out of practice with knee soreness.


May 24 2017 - Stephen Paea
  DT Stephen Paea was held out of practice with knee soreness.


May 24 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten will not practice on consecutive days during the offseason, so he was held out of practice Wednesday after working out Tuesday.


May 23 2017 - David Irving
  DE David Irving is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy. According to multiple reports, Irving informed the league he would appeal and believes there is "evidence" that will clear him. Irving had four sacks and led the Cowboys with 26 quarterback pressures in 2016. Irving signed a one-year deal as an exclusive rights free agent for 2017 and can become a restricted free agent at the end of the upcoming season.


May 12 2017 - Rolando McClain
  LB Rolando McClain was arrested Friday in Alabama on firearm and drug charges. McClain was arrested for second-degree possession of marijuana, carrying a firearm without a permit and a misdemeanor equipment violation, according to Hartselle (Ala.) Police. McClain received an indefinite ban from the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy in December, marking the third time in his professional career that he had been suspended. The former Alabama star and eighth overall pick of the 2010 NFL draft last played for the Dallas Cowboys in 2015.


Apr 29 2017 - Randy Gregory
  DE Randy Gregory of the Cowboys, already on suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, tested positive for the seventh time, according to media reports. Gregory, 24, was tested on Feb. 21 and on March 2 and was reportedly informed that he had tested positive for marijuana. He has since been uncooperative with NFL officials trying to discuss the situation. In January, Gregory was suspended for at least a year following additional positive tests.


Apr 21 2017 - Shaquelle Evans
  WR Shaquelle Evans, a practice-squad player last season, was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 campaign by the NFL for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the team announced Friday. Evans, 26, has not played a regular-season game for the Cowboys, and this suspension certainly will not enhance his chances of getting on the field.


Apr 18 2017 - Zack Martin
  OG Zack Martin's fifth-year option for 2018 was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. The former first-round pick will make $9.341 million in the final year of his contract, but that could be viewed as a value buy for the Cowboys. Martin, a two-time All-Pro, was selected to the Pro Bowl each of his first three seasons.


Apr 4 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo plans to pursue a career in broadcasting even if the Cowboys release him as expected. ESPN's Adam Schefter, who is represented by the same agent who represents Romo, broke the story Tuesday. Sports Business Journal connected Romo to CBS as a replacement for the network's top NFL broadcast analyst, Phil Simms. CBS and Romo have not signed the agreement, per Sports Business Journal, but the move is expected to be completed in a matter of days. At CBS, speculation centered on Romo joining Jim Nantz as part of the Thursday night football broadcast team. Should a playoff-caliber team encounter an emergency at the position, Romo could be enticed to punt the broadcasting plan.


Mar 30 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo's status with the Cowboys will be determined "before training camp," team owner Jerry Jones said Wednesday. Romo has been in limbo since free agency began three weeks ago. The Cowboys have been seeking a trade partner for the 36-year-old veteran, but thus far no team has been willing to take on Romo's contract for the 2017 season. If no trade is made, the Cowboys intend to release Romo. Jones, speaking to reporters Tuesday at the NFL meetings in Phoenix, said he talked with Romo in the last several days. Romo wants to continue his playing career, but FOX and CBS reportedly want him as a television analyst for next season.


Mar 28 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten reportedly agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Cowboys worth a maximum of $29.6 million on Tuesday. Witten's deal does not include guaranteed money. His $12.262 million cap hit for the 2017 season remains the same entering the final year of his existing deal. The contract can be restructured to save $4 million in cap space whenever they want, per ESPN. Last season, Witten had 673 receiving yards and three scores on 69 catches. He has recorded at least 60 catches in every seasons since his rookie campaign.


Mar 24 2017 - Byron Bell
  OT Byron Bell signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday. Bell missed the entire 2016 season after dislocating his ankle during an offseason practice while with the Tennessee Titans. He started all 16 games for the club in 2015 -- seven at left guard, eight at right tackle and one at left tackle -- after signing as a free agent.


Mar 20 2017 - Kellen Moore
  QB Kellen Moore was signed to address the team's backup situation for the 2017 season. Moore was expected to be Tony Romo's backup last season before fracturing his fibula in the first week of training camp. Moore, 27, was put on season-ending injured reserve and Romo injured his back three weeks later in the third preseason game, paving the way for rookie quarterback Dak Prescott to become the starter and lead the Cowboys to a 13-3 season.


Mar 16 2017 - Darren McFadden
  RB Darren McFadden re-signed with the Cowboys Thursday, agreeing to a one-year contract worth $980,000. McFadden rushed 24 times for 87 yards over the final three games last season after returning from an elbow injury he sustained prior to training camp.


Mar 16 2017 - Lance Dunbar
  RB Lance Dunbar signed a one-year deal worth up to $3 million. Dunbar, who met with the Rams on Wednesday, returned from a torn ACL injury that ended his 2015 season and played in a limited role over 13 games behind rookie Ezekiel Elliott with the Dallas Cowboys. The 27-year-old Dunbar rushed nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown and reeled in 16 catches for 122 yards in 2016.


Mar 11 2017 - Doug Free
  T Doug Free of the Dallas Cowboys says he plans to retire. Free, 33, has been an ironman for the Cowboys, starting all 16 games in six of the last seven seasons. A fourth-round selection by Dallas in the 2007 draft, the Northern Illinois product appeared in all 16 games in the 2009 season, making seven starts. Free sat out five games during the 2014 campaign -- the only ones he missed since moving into the starting lineup in 2010.


Mar 10 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo is leaving Dallas, but the Cowboys are still attempting to find a trade partner for the franchise's all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns. The Cowboys "will not release" Romo even if a trade cannot be worked out, according to NFL Network. Romo's 2017 salary cap number of $24.7 million stands as the highest among any quarterback for next season. A new contract would be part of any trade negotiation.


Mar 8 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo will be released by the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday as the new league year gets underway, according to multiple reports Wednesday. Romo's 2017 salary cap number of $24.7 million stands as the highest among any quarterback for next season. Romo's departure became more apparent when reports surfaced of free agent quarterback Josh McCown visiting with the Cowboys on Wednesday.


Mar 8 2017 - Brice Butler
  WR Brice Butler agreed to a one-year contract with the Cowboys. Butler, 27, reeled in 16 receptions for 219 yards and three touchdowns last season for the Cowboys.


Feb 5 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo's future with the Dallas Cowboys may be up in the air but he is reportedly determined to play in 2017 and has no plans to retire. Romo has already received strong interest from television networks that want him to work as a color analyst but he wants to play, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Romo, who turns 37 in April, is owed $14 million next season and carries a $24.7 million cap hit should the Cowboys decide to keep him. A team trading for Romo would be responsible for his full 2017 salary.


Jan 27 2017 - Tyrone Crawford
  DE Tyrone Crawford underwent surgery on his right shoulder, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Friday. Crawford injured his rotator cuff in the second game of the season and played through the pain. He was held out of the final two games of the regular season before playing in the divisional playoff loss to the Packers.


Jan 27 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE Demarcus Lawrence underwent back surgery for the second consecutive offseason, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Friday. Lawrence played in just nine games, missing three due to injury and sitting out the first four while serving a suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.


Jan 17 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing, was named the Rookie of the Year by the Professional Football Writers of America on Tuesday. Elliott was also named the Offensive Rookie of the Year, while San Diego Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, who was Elliott's teammate last season at Ohio State, was selected as the Defensive Rookie of the Year in a vote by the PFWA. Elliott, the No. 4 overall draft pick, rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns in 15 games, while averaging 5.1 yards per attempt.


Jan 17 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo's future with the Cowboys is still in doubt according to Dallas owner Jerry Jones. Romo, 36, is owed $14 million next season and carries a $24.7 million cap hit should Jones decide to keep him. "There's several cards to be played," Jones said Tuesday on his weekly radio interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "Don't think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be relative to our team that there's any credibility to it. There's only one that can make that decision and there's been no decision made."


Jan 16 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten plans to reflect on his career but expects to return in 2017. The loss on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers was hard for Witten to accept. It ended his 14th season in the NFL, the 14th without a trip to the Super Bowl and the 12th without a playoff win. He has never advanced to the NFC Championship game. "I haven't really thought about it," Witten said. "Every year when I'm empty at this point it's just you gave everything you got and I'll take time to reflect on it. I love this team and this group of guys and so yeah that will be the plan for sure." Witen has one year left on his deal with a $7.4 million base salary for 2017. There is no question he still can play at a high level. Witten caught 69 passes for 673 yards and three touchdowns in 2016. He followed with a strong effort in the loss to the Packers, catching six passes for 59 yards and his first career postseason touchdown.


Jan 16 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant posted career postseason highs with nine receptions for 132 yards and his first career two touchdowns in the playoffs against the Packers on Sunday.


Jan 16 2017 - Jeff Heath
  S Jeff Heath became the third player in team postseason history with a sack and an interception against the Packers on Sunday -- both the first of his playoff career. He joined Thomas Everett (one sack, two INT) vs. Buffalo on Jan. 31, 1993, and Leon Lett (one sack, 1 INT) on Jan. 14, 1996, against Green Bay.


Jan 16 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott wants to see "closure" on the NFL's domestic violence inquiry related to the assault accusations made by his ex-girlfriend over the summer. Elliott, the league's leading rusher this season as a rookie, was accused of a second domestic violence incident involving the woman, who said she was hurt in a July argument. The league's investigation will determine whether Elliott violated its personal conduct policy.


Jan 15 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant had nine catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the NFC divisional playoff game loss to the Packers.


Jan 15 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott rushed 22 times for 125 yards in the NFC divisional playoff game loss to the Packers. ESPN reported Sunday the NFL submitted follow-up questions to Elliott regarding assault accusations made in July by his ex-girlfriend. Elliott is still in the process of responding and no resolution is expected this season, according to the report.


Jan 15 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott completed 24 of 38 for 302 yards, three scores and a pick in the NFC divisional playoff game loss to the Packers. Prescott could find little solace after his first playoff game. He said he was feeling as low as possible, but also vowed to be back. "These are the games I dreamed as a kid of playing in," he said. "I hope to play in many more of them." Prescott was the first rookie signal-caller to start a playoff game in Cowboys franchise history


Jan 5 2017 - Randy Gregory
  DE Randy Gregory has been suspended without pay for at least one year for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for the third time. The NFL announced the suspension on Thursday. The punishment begins immediately and prevents Gregory from playing for Dallas in the playoffs. All three of Gregory's suspensions have come in the past year. He served a four-game suspension at the start of the 2016 season and then served a 10-game suspension for his second offense. Gregory also failed a drug test for marijuana at the NFL combine in 2015. Gregory, a second-round pick, played in Weeks 16 and 17 of this season and recorded his first career sack.


Jan 4 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence said he might need surgery in the offseason to repair his ailing back. If so, it would be the second straight offseason that Lawrence has had to undergo back surgery. After missing the final three games of the regular season to manage the injury, Lawrence said he will be good to go when the Cowboys open the playoffs after this weekend's bye.


Jan 4 2017 - John Lotulelei
  LB John Lotulelei was signed to the Reserve/Future list by the Cowboys.


Jan 4 2017 - Shaquelle Evans
  WR Shaquelle Evans was signed to the Cowboys' practice squad.


Jan 4 2017 - Jonathan Cooper
  G Jonathan Cooper was signed by the Cowboys on Wednesday for playoff for insurance.
