 Latest Cowboys Player Notes
Jan 23 2018 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant is one who feeds off emotion, so much so that Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said that the wide receiver's antics sometimes can be a distraction. Jones spoke on the team's website about the future of Bryant, who is slated to make a $12.5 million base salary and account for a $16.5 million cap charge next season. Jones said he is weighing all options when it comes to a 29-year-old wide receiver that has failed to record a 1,000-yard season in each of his last three years.


Jan 23 2018 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten will replace Zach Ertz for Sunday's Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Since the game is taking place in the week between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, players who advance get replaced. Witten will be making the 11th appearance in the game during his 15-year career, tying Hall of Famer Bob Lilly for the most in Cowboys history. He caught 63 passes for 560 yard and five touchdowns.


Jan 9 2018 - Zack Martin
  OG Zack Martin had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow and will miss the Pro Bowl. Martin is entering the final year of his five-year rookie contract, and he is scheduled to make $9.3 million in 2018. The injury is not expected to affect any contract talks. Martin has not missed a game in his four seasons in the NFL.


Jan 9 2018 - Maliek Collins
  DT Maliek Collins underwent surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot. Collins started all 16 games for the Cowboys this past season and had 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Collins had similar surgery on his right foot prior to his rookie season of 2016, but he started 14 of 16 games that year.


Jan 3 2018 - Sean Lee
  WLB Sean Lee is the undisputed leader of the Cowboys defense. He had more than 100 tackles for the third straight year. He gets the Cowboys lined up. But he has to stay on the field. The Cowboys went 1-4 in his absence in 2017, giving up 10 more points per game.


Jan 3 2018 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten remains plans to return for a 16th season. His 63 catches were the fewest since his rookie season and his 8.9 yards per catch were the lowest of his career. He is station to station at this point in his career.


Jan 3 2018 - Alfred Morris
  RB Alfred Morris did a nice job replacing Ezekiel Elliott in his absence, rushing for 547 yards and averaging 4.8 yards per carry. He should find a job in free agency.


Jan 3 2018 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 983 yards in 10 games after being suspended for six for personal conduct. He probably would have won the rushing title again if he had played all 16. The key for Elliott is staying out of trouble so he can play all the games in 2018. Morris did a nice job ;


Jan 3 2018 - Dak Prescott
  QB Zac Prescott took a huge step back in 2017. There is no other way to say it. From 23 touchdowns and four interceptions as a rookie to 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as a sophomore. He undone by the loss of running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games, injuries up front had him shell-shocked in the pocket and lack of game-breaking weapons on the outside.


Jan 1 2018 - Chidobe Awuzie
  CB Chido Awuzie intercepted Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in the first quarter on Sunday. It marked Awuzie's first career interception and the 10th of the year for the Cowboys.


Jan 1 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens is headed to free agency with optimism. He wants to return to the Cowboys. But he will do what's best for his family. Hitchens has proven to be a dependable starter in the league, and should attract interest from other teams.


Jan 1 2018 - Dan Bailey
  K Dan Bailey made no excuses for his struggles down the stretch of the season. He didn't blame a groin injury that sidelined him for four games. Instead, Bailey blamed only himself for the worst season of his career.


Jan 1 2018 - Rod Smith
  RB Rod Smith scored touchdowns in four straight games and proved to be a capable third-down option.


Jan 1 2018 - Alfred Morris
  RB Alfred Morris rushed 115 times for 547 yards. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry.


Jan 1 2018 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence had no sacks as a rookie, eight sacks in 2015 and one sack last year. He broke out with 14.5 sacks in 2017.


Jan 1 2018 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant led the Cowboys with 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns. But he averaged a career-worst 12.1 yards per receptions, was among the league leaders in dropped passes and did not record a 100-yard receiving game. He also struggled with knee tendinitis since November. There is a chance the Cowboys could ask Bryant to take a pay cut from his $12.5 million salary for next year or be cut in what could be an offseason of changes.


Jan 1 2018 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott had 13 interceptions after just four last year and had seven games in which he passed for 200 yards or less.


Jan 1 2018 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick (back) was placed on injured reserve ahead of the season finale.


Jan 1 2018 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith (back) was placed on injured reserve ahead of the season finale.


Jan 1 2018 - Cole Beasley
  WR Cole Beasley (illness) wasn't active for the regular-season finale. Beasley had 36 catches for 314 yards and four touchdowns this season.


Jan 1 2018 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Brice Butler early in the fourth quarter, and the Cowboys held on for a 6-0 victory over the Eagles on Sunday. Prescott completed 17 of 30 passes for 179 yards with no interceptions.


Dec 28 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant is not interested in taking a pay cut to remain in Big D. Scheduled to make $12.5 million next season, Bryant was asked if he would be willing to take less money to remain in Dallas. "I haven't heard no talk about that but if it comes, I don't know, probably not," Bryant said Wednesday. "Hell no, man. I believe in me."


Dec 28 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith did not practice Wednesday and will not play in the season finale because of knee, groin and back injuries. Byron Bell will start against the Eagles.


Dec 28 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick will miss his fourth straight game with fractured bones in his back. He may be an offseason cap casualty.


Dec 28 2017 - David Irving
  DT David Irving did not practice Wednesday and will miss his fourth straight game with a concussion.


Dec 28 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten may or may not be playing in his final game. He said he hasn't made a decision yet on his future, but he likes the future of this team. "There's not always a fairy-tale ending, I realize that," Witten said. "Nobody is more critical of themselves than me. I understand the expectation. But I see too many positives and feel too good to think that it would end right now."


Dec 28 2017 - *KD Cannon
  WR K.D. Cannon was signed to the practice squad as a possible developmental player for the future.


Dec 26 2017 - Sean Lee
  LB Sean Lee led the way on defense against Seattle with 14 tackles.


Dec 26 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott's long-awaited return from a six-game suspension proved to be much ado about nothing. Elliott did his part with 24 carries for 97 yards, including 15 for 73 in the first half. But he had just 15 yards on seven carries in the third quarter and didn't get one touch on first-and-goal from the 3 in the fourth quarter.


Dec 26 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott completed 21 of 34 passes for 182 yards and two interceptions, including a pick-six. He was also sacked four times.


Dec 26 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence continues to lead the NFL with 14.5 sacks. He is trying to become the team's first NFL sack leader since DeMarcus Ware.


Dec 26 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick missed the last three games with fractured bones in his back and is unlikely to play in the season finale. He might have played his last game with the Cowboys as the team could focus on their young cornerbacks in 2018.


Dec 26 2017 - David Irving
  DT David Irving is unlikely to play in the season finale after missing the last three games in concussion protocol.


Dec 26 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant made $13 million in 2017 and is expected to make $12.5 million in 2018 as part of a five-year, $70 million deal he signed before the 2015 season. A disappointing 2017 has been the trifecta of three consecutive subpar seasons since he signed the contract. The first two were blamed on injuries, but Bryant's 66 catches for 815 yards in 2017 has raised questions about whether he is still an elite receiver.


Dec 24 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence, who began Sunday in third place in the NFL in sacks this season with 13.5, added one to his total against Seattle.


Dec 24 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott's returned Sunday after a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. He rushed for 97 yards on 24 carries. "It's frustrating," Elliott said. "We came out moving in the first half, but we weren't able to get the ball in the end zone. We suffered from that later in the game. It's hard to get a win in this league when you have three turnovers. We just have to execute better."


Dec 24 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant caught three passes for 44 yards Sunday. However, one of his catches resulted in a fumble at the Dallas 43 that Seattle turned into its first offensive touchdown. Bryant also dropped two passes, the second of which was tipped in the air, allowing Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright to intercept it.


Dec 24 2017 - Dan Bailey
  PK Dan Bailey kept the Cowboys in the game Sunday by booting field goals of 34, 51 and 51 yards. His fourth field goal, from 39 yards, cut Seattle's lead to 14-12 with 8:36 left in the third quarter. However, with Dallas trailing by nine in the fourth, Bailey missed from 34 and 48 yards. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he didn't know if Bailey's misses were a result of lingering effects of a groin injury that caused the seventh-year veteran to miss four games earlier this season. "I do know that he made four kicks in the game, two of them 51-yarders," Garrett said. "He was kicking well and he's been such a great player for us for a long time. Those are important. Obviously, the first miss kept it a two-score game in that situation. If we make it a one-score game, the dynamic changes on the other side."


Dec 24 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten, 35, indicated he wants to be back for the 2018 campaign. "Every week I have an opportunity to break this team down, and I see too much positive," Witten said. "I really do. I feel too good to think that would end. My intentions are to keep playing."


Dec 21 2017 - Ryan Russell
  DE Ryan Russell (shoulder) was added to the injury report and was limited.


Dec 20 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, but is still in pain from two fractures in his back that sidelined him the past two weeks.


Dec 20 2017 - Brice Butler
  WR Brice Butler practiced Wednesday after missing the past two games with a foot injury.


Dec 20 2017 - Tyron Smith
  T Tyron Smith is questionable with a sprained LCL in his knee. He is not expected to practice this week.


Dec 20 2017 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens sat out Wednesday with a sprained knee. He may not practice all week, but he says he is playing against the Seahawks.


Dec 20 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence missed practice Wednesday with back tightness. He will play against the Seahawks.


Dec 20 2017 - David Irving
  DE David Irving missed practice Wednesday and missed the past two games with a concussion. He is still having headaches and might miss Sunday's game.


Dec 18 2017 - Dan Bailey
  K Dan Bailey made two field goals after missing two kicks and an extra point last week.


Dec 18 2017 - Anthony Brown
  CB Anthony Brown had three pass deflections.


Dec 18 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten caught four passes for 47 yards. Witten's 47 receiving yards allowed him to reach 500 yards (504) for the 14th season of his career to become the 10th player and second tight end in NFL history to reach that mark in at least 14 seasons. Witten also became the fifth player and second tight end to post at least 500 receiving


Dec 18 2017 - Rod Smith
  RB Rod Smith rushed seven times for 13 yards and a touchdown. It was his fourth straight game with a rushing score, the longest such streak since DeMarco Murray in 2014, who did it twice with a four- and five-game streak, respectively.
