 Latest Cowboys Player Notes
Nov 20 2017 - Alfred Morris
  RB Alfred Morris led the team with 91 yards on 17 carries.


Nov 20 2017 - Darren McFadden
  RB Darren McFadden was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game, meaning Dallas had just two active running backs.


Nov 20 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott completed just 18 of 31 passes for 145 yards. He was intercepted three times and committed the costly fumble. Philadelphia sacked Prescott four times, keeping Dallas (5-5) from establishing any momentum on offense. "We haven't been good enough," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. "We haven't been able to be consistent running the football, consistent throwing the football. I don't think our pass protection has been as good as it needs to be. We haven't been able to attack the defense in different ways like we're capable of doing and like we have been doing at different points this year."


Nov 16 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith of the Dallas Cowboys sat out Thursday's practice with groin and back issues. The Pro Bowler has missed practice on consecutive days. Smith's availability is in question for the Cowboys (5-4) in Sunday's home game versus the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles (8-1). Smith's absence was felt during last Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, as Dak Prescott was sacked eight times -- including on six occasions by defensive end Adrian Clayborn.


Nov 15 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott is one of four quarterbacks in NFL history with 50 combined rushing and passing touchdowns in his first 25 games, joining Dan Marino, Daunte Culpepper and Kurt Warner.


Nov 15 2017 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens will move from the middle to the weak side to replace an injured Sean Lee. Jaylon Smith and Justin Durant will share the middle with Durant getting a bigger load. Hitchens has made 36 tackles, including five for loss, in five games this season. He missed the start of the season after fracturing the tibial plateau in his right leg. Now he will handle being the signal-caller. "Communication is huge, getting the guys lined up, and I'm going to be the guy making the calls if (Lee's) not," Hitchens said. "I just try my best to imitate him and get everyone lined up. He's going to help me throughout the week. At the end of the day, if he's out, I've got to step up and play the Sean Lee role."


Nov 15 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant missed practice Wednesday with a sore knee. It also bothered him last week and had him limited in practice. He should play on Sunday.


Nov 15 2017 - Geoff Swaim
  TE Geoff Swaim practiced on a limited basis Wednesday after missing last week's game with knee swelling. He should be ready to go against the Eagles.


Nov 15 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott continues to maintain his innocence against domestic violence allegations made by former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson. But he has finally accepted the reality of having no chance of winning a legal fight in federal court against the NFL in hopes of getting a six-game suspension overturned and hopefully clearing his name. In a statement through his lawyers, Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano, Elliott announced Wednesday that he was foregoing any further appeals and will serve the remaining suspension.


Nov 15 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal of his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, his agents announced in a statement on Wednesday. Elliott sat out the first game of his suspension in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The 22-year-old will be eligible to return to the Cowboys (5-4) on Christmas Eve against the Seattle Seahawks.


Nov 13 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten led the way with seven catches for 59 yards, but it was too little against the Falcons.


Nov 13 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott had no chance as he was sacked eight times, including six by Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn, who exploited Chaz Green and Byron Bell at left tackle in place of the injured Tyron Smith. Prescott completed 20 of 30 passes for 176 yards.


Nov 13 2017 - Jeff Heath
  S Jeff Heath is in the concussion protocol after suffering a head injury against the Falcons Sunday.


Nov 13 2017 - Sean Lee
  LB Sean Lee is not expected to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles after aggravating a hamstring injury in the 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. And there is a good chance he is out the next three games, returning for the Dec. 10 matchup at the New York Giants, per sources. The Cowboys are taking it day-by-day.


Nov 13 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott plans to spend time out of the country to clear his head and train during his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, per a source. That confirmed an earlier report by the NFL Network. Elliott hopes to take a page out the Tom Brady playbook. The New England Patriots quarterback spent a week in Italy during his four-game suspension in 2016. Elliott, however, has yet to depart for his out of the country trip. He was spotted grocery shopping in Frisco before Sunday's game between the Cowboys and the Atlanta Falcons.


Nov 13 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith remains questionable to play against the Eagles Sunday after missing the Falcons game with a groin injury. Chaz Green started in his place and gave up four sacks. Byron Bell replaced him in the fourth quarter and gave up one sack. Look for Bell to get the start at left tackle if Smith can't go. Green has lost confidence and the Cowboys have lost confidence in him.


Nov 13 2017 - Jeff Heath
  S Jeff Heath was lost to a concussion in the third quarter. .


Nov 13 2017 - Sean Lee
  LB Sean Lee, who missed two earlier games, didn't return after injuring a hamstring in the first quarter.


Nov 13 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott, who was 20 of 30 for 176 yards, was sacked eight times and two of Adrian Clayborn's sacks resulted in fumbles, with Clayborn recovering one. "When we got in those passing situations, we couldn't slow them down," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. "They put heat on the quarterback all day long and, unfortunately, we weren't able to have any efficiency to keep drives alive." Prescott scrambled for the only Cowboys' touchdown in the first quarter.


Nov 9 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott had his latest legal motion denied by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Thursday, meaning his six-game NFL suspension is back in effect. Elliott is slated to begin his suspension when the Cowboys visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The NFL Players Association is expected to request an expedited appeal of Thursday's decision but the suspension began immediately upon the court's ruling. If the suspension sticks, Elliott will next be eligible to play against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 24.


Nov 8 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith missed practice with a groin injury. The Cowboys are hopeful he can do something Thursday or Friday. If he can't go, Chaz Green will start in his place.


Nov 8 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant is fighting both ankle and knee injuries and missed practice Wednesday. Head coach Jason Garrett said the knee injury appears to be a bruise rather than structural damage. .


Nov 8 2017 - Chidobe Awuzie
  CB Chidobe Awuzie was a full participant in Wednesday's practice for the first time since Week 5. Awuzie, who has been battling a hamstring injury all season, has missed five of Dallas' last six games. Awuzie worked at safety and corner during Wednesday's practice.


Nov 8 2017 - Lewis Neal
  DT Lewis Neal has been called up from the practice squad to fill the hole on the defensive line created by Brian Price being placed on injured reserve.


Nov 6 2017 - Brian Price
  DT Brian Price has been placed on injured reserve, head coach Jason Garrett said. Price injured his knee in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and will undergo surgery on Tuesday. Price served as a backup nose tackle, averaging 15-20 snaps a game. Garrett said the Cowboys don't know how they'll address Price's roster spot at this point. They could look internally and promote Lewis Neal from the practice squad, or find a better option externally. The Cowboys acquired Price off waivers from the Green Bay Packers following the cuts to 53. The Texas-San Antonio product was credited with seven tackles and three quarterback pressures in the first seven games.


Nov 6 2017 - David Irving
  DE David Irving had a sack against the Chiefs, giving him a sack in four straight games since missing the first four games under NFL suspension. He has six sacks on the season.


Nov 6 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams had nine catches for 141 yards against the Chiefs Sunday, but ended the game with a sprained ankle. He is listed as day-to-day.


Nov 6 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant suffered knee and ankle injuries against the Chiefs Sunday and will be limited in practice this week. Head coach Jason Garrett said he is day-to-day.


Nov 6 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith was sidelined in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win with a strained groin and it could keep him out of the Falcons game. Smith won't practice Wednesday and is listed as day-to-day. "We'll just see how he proceeds, how he feels when he comes in (Tuesday)," head coach Jason Garrett said, "and how to proceed during the week." Chaz Green replaced Smith at left tackle for the final series against Kansas City. It will be either Green or Byron Bell at left tackle Sunday if Smith can't go.


Nov 6 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott completed 21 of 33 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns, and he added three rushes for 27 yards and a touchdown Sunday. "Seeming him every week, he's someone that can beat you a lot of different ways," head coach Jason Garrett said after the team's 28-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. "He makes plays in the pocket and he make plays out of the pocket. He makes plays with his feet. He did that all throughout this ball game."


Nov 6 2017 - Tony Romo
  QB Tony Romo, who called his first Dallas game since retiring from the team and joining CBS as an analyst, was honored before the game by the Cowboys.


Nov 6 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant left the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury Sunday.


Nov 3 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys is granted a stay and will be eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York granted the request for an administrative stay to the NFL Players Association on behalf of Elliott. With his six-game suspension on hold once again, the 22-year-old Elliott arrived at the Cowboys' practice facility Friday morning. He was not with the team on Wednesday and Thursday, per league rules. He is cleared only through Sunday's game against Chiefs and he will be suspended again heading into the Nov. 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons if another ruling is not in his favor. A panel of federal judges will convene next week to hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from Monday.


Nov 3 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott hopes Tony Romo is critical of him but doesn't predict Cowboys plays. A year ago, Prescot's excellent play kept Romo from regaining his starting job and it ultimately led to his retirement. On Sunday, the Cowboys' all-time leading passer who has made a smooth transition to the broadcast booth because of his humor, no holds barred criticism and knowledge of the game will get a chance to pick apart the current quarterback's game when he calls Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs for CBS. Romo was honest with Prescott last year, giving his opinions about what he thought. He knows he will be critical on Sunday. "I mean, I kind of expect him to be," Prescott said. "I hope he is. It will be cool to see him and talk to him at the production meeting."


Nov 3 2017 - Tyron Smith
  T Tyron Smith returned to practice after sitting out on Wednesday to manage his sore back. He will play on Sunday.


Nov 3 2017 - Alfred Morris
  RB Alfred Morris will open the game as the starter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday with Rod Smith and Darren McFadden rotating in as the team plans to replace the suspended Ezekiel Elliott. Morris has been the primary backup for Elliott through the first seven games, rushing 13 times for 105 yards while Smith has largely been used on third downs. McFadden was inactive for the first seven games.


Nov 1 2017 - Tyrone Crawford
  DT Tyrone Crawford is the first defensive lineman in team history to win NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, the NFL announced Wednesday. Credit a blocked field-goal attempt that shifted momentum in the Cowboys' 33-19 win over the Redskins last Sunday.


Nov 1 2017 - Tyron Smith
  T Tyron Smith was held out of practice Wednesday as the Cowboys continue to manage tightness in his back. It's a weekly occurrence. He has not missed a game this season.


Nov 1 2017 - Cole Beasley
  WR Cole Beasley missed practice as he is still in the concussion protocol. But he is expected to play against the Chiefs.


Nov 1 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant was added to the injury reported as limited in practice Wednesday with a knee injury. He is expected to play against the Chiefs.


Oct 30 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick had a monster game against the Redskins with eight tackles, two tackles for losses and an 86-yard blocked kick return. He didn't score, but he was OK that running back Ezekiel Elliott got the touchdown because he is on his fantasy team.


Oct 30 2017 - Byron Jones
  FS Byron Jones' second career interception was a doozy as he returned it 21 yards for a touchdown. It was a testament to his offseason work to improve his pass-catching skills. He even caught fly balls during batting practice with the Frisco RoughRiders, a Double-A baseball team, to improve his hand-eye coordination.


Oct 30 2017 - Tyrone Crawford
  DT Tyrone Crawford had a blocked field goal, a sack and forced fumble in a monster game against the Redskins.


Oct 30 2017 - Cole Beasley
  WR Cole Beasley suffered a concussion against the Redskins and is questionable for the Chiefs game.


Oct 30 2017 - Cole Beasley
  WR Cole Beasley left with a concussion and did not return Sunday.


Oct 29 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott ran for a season-high 150 yards and two touchdowns Sunday. After fumbling on his first carry, Elliott ran it 32 more times in bad conditions, scored on runs of 1 and 13 yards and had a 27-yard score negated by a holding penalty. He notched his third career performance of at least 150 yards in what could be his last game for some time. Elliott, who has rushed for 413 yards in his last three games, has a court date on Monday that will likely determine whether he begins serving a six-game NFL suspension immediately. "Really wasn't thinking about it today. Just worried about going out there and being myself and performing at my highest level today," Elliott said. "But I think we're confident. We're confident in our argument. We're confident that I'll be on the field." Elliott broke a tie with Don Perkins for sole possession of fifth place all-time in 100-yard rushing games in team history with 11.


Oct 25 2017 - Jonathan Cooper
  G Jonathan Cooper has won the starting job at left guard over Chaz Green. He has started the last three weeks and is starting to develop some stability and continuity with other linemen up front. "I think the more he plays, the better he is getting individually," said Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. "The more comfortable he is getting playing next to Travis (Frederick), next to Tyron (Smith). He is getting better and better every week." Said owner Jerry Jones: "He played as good a game Sunday as anybody did and the best game since he's been a Cowboy."


Oct 25 2017 - Dez Bryant
  WR Dez Bryant may not be putting up big numbers receiving, although that is growing is well. But he remains a huge scoring threat in the red zone. He has four red-zone touchdowns this season. In his career, he has converted 42 of 56 red-zone catches into touchdowns, which ranks third in the NFL since the league started keeping the stat in 1991.


Oct 25 2017 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith didn't practice Wednesday because of a sore hip and back tightness.


Oct 25 2017 - Mike Nugent
  K Mike Nugent was signed for the next couple weeks as Dan Bailey recovers from a groin injury. Nugent has played 12 seasons in the NFL, including the last seven with the Cincinnati Bengals. He lost a battle with Aldrick Rosas for the New York Giants kicking job before the season. Nugent has made 80.8 percent of his field-goal attempts in his career (236 of 292). He has also made 96.9 percent of his PAT attempts, though he missed six last season (23 of 29).
