Sep 18 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick will try to practice this week and play against the Cardinals on Monday after missing the Broncos game following surgery to repair a fractured bone in his left hand.


Sep 18 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott injured his ankle against the Broncos but seems no less for wear, per Jason Garrett. It will be monitored during the week.


Sep 18 2017 - Nolan Carroll
  CB Nolan Carroll suffered a concussion against the Broncos and is day to day as he goes through concussion protocol.


Sep 18 2017 - Chidobe Awuzie
  CB Chido Awuzie is day to day with a hamstring injury suffered against the Broncos in the first quarter.


Sep 18 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott will continue playing after a judge denied the NFL's appeal for a stay of the preliminary suspension injunction. Judge Amos Mazzant's ruling Monday in Texas means the case will now move to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, where the NFL has already filed an appeal in the case. Elliott, 22, was suspended six games by the NFL on Aug. 11 following a 13-month league investigation that he had multiple physical confrontations in the summer of 2016 in Ohio with his girlfriend at the time.


Sep 18 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott ran into a defensive buzz-saw and was limited to 8 yards rushing on nine carries. "We just couldn't get any movement on the ball and establish the running game," Elliott said. "It's frustrating but it's Week 2. We've just got to go back and watch the film and rebuild, make sure we are getting better." Still, asked the last time he had been held to less than 10 yards rushing in a game, Ezekiel replied "Never."


Sep 18 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten achieved another milestone a week after becoming the Cowboys' all-time leading receiver. Witten played in his 225th game as a member of the Cowboys, surpassing Ed Jones (224) for most games played in team history. Witten had 10 receptions for 97 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown against the Broncos to boost his career receiving yardage to 12,044. He surpassed Michael Irvin (11,904) last week to become the Cowboys' all-time leader in receiving yards.


Sep 18 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott finished with 238 yards passing, completing 30 of a career-high 50 pass attempts with two interceptions for Dallas (1-1). Prescott shouldered some of the blame for the running game's lack of effectiveness. "I feel like if I would have made some of those plays on the outside, I probably would have forced them to get in a zone (defense) more than the man coverage they were in a majority of the night," Prescott said. "And usually that's when our run game hits."


Sep 18 2017 - Nolan Carroll
  CB Nolan Carroll sustained a concussion and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.


Sep 18 2017 - Chidobe Awuzie
  CB Chidobe Awuzie left in the first quarter because of a hamstring injury and did not return. Awuzie was starting in place of the injured Orlando Scandrick, who was listed among the team's inactive players after breaking his left hand helping to make a tackle in Dallas' opening win over the New York Giants. Awuzie was replaced by rookie Jourdan Lewis.


Sep 15 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams missed practice Thursday with a sprained ankle and was limited Friday. Williams has never missed a game in his career so this will be a game-time decision. He is listed as questionable.


Sep 15 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick missed his third day of practice Friday because of a fractured bone in his hand. It still has stitches in it after undergoing surgery to insert a plate in his hand. He was declared out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.


Sep 14 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott will become the first NFL quarterback ever to throw five or fewer interceptions in his first 500 passes (he's thrown four through 498 so far), barring him uncharacteristically throwing an interception on his first two passes against the Broncos Sunday. He has already set an NFL record for fewest touchdown passes through the first 17 games of a career.


Sep 14 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams missed practice Thursday with a sprained ankle. He has yet to go all week. However, the Cowboys have not ruled him out for Sunday. Williams has never missed a game in his career so this will be a game-time decision.


Sep 14 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick missed his second day of practice because of a fractured bone in his hand. It still has stitches in it after undergoing surgery to insert a plate in his hand. He is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos.


Sep 14 2017 - Byron Jones
  S Byron Jones was limited in practice Thursday with a groin injury. He said he was fine.


Sep 14 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams of the Dallas Cowboys missed his second consecutive practice on Thursday, according to multiple outlets. Williams injured his ankle early in Sunday's 19-3 victory over the New York Giants before returning to finish with six catches for 68 yards. The 27-year-old has not missed a game during his NFL career. Williams has 183 receptions for 2,859 yards and 20 touchdowns since being selected by Dallas in the third round of the 2013 draft.


Sep 14 2017 - Jourdan Lewis
  CB Jourdan Lewis practiced full for the first time since minicamp after being sidelined since the start of training camp with a hamstring.


Sep 14 2017 - Terrance Williams

Sep 14 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick didn't practice Wednesday after undergoing surgery to have a plate placed in his left hand to repair a fractured bone. He has not been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos.


Sep 11 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten, already the team's all-time leading receiver, now owns the record for most receiving yards. Witten had an 11-yard reception in the second quarter to set the record against the Giants on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. Witten needed only 17 yards to pass Michael Irvin's mark of 11,904. He also tied Ed "Too Tall" Jones for most games played (224) in Cowboys history. "He's not a flashy player and he doesn't have to be," owner Jerry Jones said. "He's a true football player. He's one of the last few true tight ends. ... He's the definition of true toughness. He's been around 15 years and has played well. It's been remarkable."


Sep 11 2017 - Charles Tapper
  DE Charles Tapper had his first career sack. Tapper, a 2016 fourth-round pick from Oklahoma, missed all of last season with a back injury.


Sep 11 2017 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence had two sacks against the Giants after notching just one all last season.


Sep 11 2017 - La'el Collins
  RT La'el Collins, who started for the first time in place of the retired Doug Free, had a nice first game. He made Giants defensive end Jason Pierre Paul disappear for much of the game.


Sep 11 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams returned from a sprained ankle on the first play of the game to record six catches, including five for first downs against the Giants. He wore a walking boot after the game and hopes to play against the Broncos Sunday.


Sep 11 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick broke a bone in his hand and underwent surgery Monday night to have a plate inserted. He might play Sunday against the Denver, but more likely the following Monday against the Arizona Cardinals.


Sep 11 2017 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick suffered a broken hand in the Cowboys' 19-3 win against the New York Giants on Sunday night. Scandrick, 30, will have a plate put in his left hand Monday to stabilize a broken third metacarpal, according to ESPN. Coach Jason Garrett said after the game that he is optimistic Scandrick can return "sooner rather than later" but will not play in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos. Scandrick suffered the injury in the second quarter and was ruled out after getting an X-ray of his hand. In 2016, he played in 12 games with 10 starts, recording 46 tackles, two sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles and eight passes defensed.


Sep 11 2017 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams sustained an ankle injury on the first offensive series of Sunday's game against the Giants and was listed as questionable to return. However, he re-entered the game on the last play of the first quarter and caught a 15-yard pass to convert a third-and-12. He finished the game with six catches for 68 yards.


Sep 11 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott completed 24 of 39 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Cowboys' Sunday night win over the Giants. He added 24 yards rushing on three carries.


Sep 11 2017 - Jason Witten
  TE Jason Witten became the team's career receiving yards leader and scored Dallas' first touchdown of the season. Quarterback Dak Prescott tossed to Witten for an 11-yard gain in the second quarter that brought Witten's career total to 11,890 receiving yards, passing Michael Irvin's previous team record of 11,888. Witten then capped a touchdown drive late in the first half. Prescott hit the tight end on a slant pass for a 12-yard score that put Dallas ahead 13-0 with 1:41 left in the second quarter. Witten finished the first half with six receptions for 49 yards, and he ended the game with seven catches for 59 yards. "I say this in all sincerity, he's getting better and better," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He plays the game at such a high level. He keeps his body right. He's got such a spirit and hunger."


Sep 11 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekial Elliott, playing after an injunction filed against the NFL allowed him to start the season despite a six-game suspension for domestic violence, rushed for 104 yards on 24 carries in the Cowboys win over the Giants. "I talked to him, I knew he was excited," quarterback Dak Prescott said. "He was ready to get out there, put some of this other stuff behind him and just go be with his team and play a good game tonight." Elliott also caught fve passes for 36 yards.


Sep 10 2017 - Darren McFadden
  Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden was ruled a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Alfred Morris will back up starting tailback Ezekiel Elliott.


Sep 8 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys won in court on Friday when U.S. District Court judge Amos Mazzant III granted a request by the NFL Players Association for a temporary restraining order to prevent the implementation of his six-game suspension. Elliott's suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy was set to begin on Monday, one day after he was eligible to compete in the Cowboys' season-opening game against the NFC East rival New York Giants. With the injunction, Elliott likely will be able to continue playing as the legal process plays out. Elliott, who was not arrested nor charged in the case, maintained his innocence after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson. The original punishment was issued by Goodell on Aug. 11 after a 13-month investigation.


Sep 6 2017 - Jourdan Lewis
  CB Jourdan Lewis was sidelined the entire preseason with hamstring injuries. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Sep 6 2017 - Tyrone Crawford
  DE Tyrone Crawford practiced full on Wednesday after missing the last three weeks with a sprained ankle. He will start at left end against the Giants.


Sep 6 2017 - Chaz Green
  LG Chaz Green (ankle) practiced on Wednesday and is being targeted to start against the Giants over Jonathan Cooper.


Sep 6 2017 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott is the face of the Dallas Cowboys now, so quite naturally and most expectedly he was voted by his teammates as one of the six team captains for the 2017 season. "It's an honor just to be voted by my peers and by my teammates," Prescott said. "Basically, to be voted to lead so it's special. It's something I put amongst all of my acknowledgments." The others were tight end Jason Witten, linebacker Sean Lee, cornerback Orlando Scandrick, defensive end Tyrone Crawford and kicker Dan Bailey.


Sep 6 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott "seems very focused" a day after getting the news he is eligible to play in Sunday night's season opener against the New York Giants even though an arbitrator upheld his six-game suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Elliott was on the practice field Wednesday for the only padded practice of the week, but his eligibility to play beyond Week 1 remained in question. "He seems very focused, locked in on meetings, the walk-through," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters. "We'll have a good practice today. He's done an excellent job in his preparation.


Sep 6 2017 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence was upheld an arbitrator, but he is eligible to play in Week 1. Elliott's legal team said in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed with Mr. Henderson's inability to navigate through league politics, and follow the evidence and, most importantly, his conscious." The NFL Players Association previously filed a restraining order seeking to block any suspension for Elliott, and a judge is due to rule on by 5 p.m. CDT on Friday, NFL.com reported.


Sep 3 2017 - Byron Bell
  T Byron Bell has made the roster and will collect another $150,000 on Tuesday. He collected $150,000 at the start of minicamp and training camp for being under 320 pounds. He collects another $150,000 if he makes the roster and is under 320 again.


Sep 3 2017 - Rico Gathers
  TE Rico Gathers is on the 53-man roster for now. Head coach Jason Garrett said there was a chance he could be placed on injured reserve as he's still in concussion protocol. If Gathers wasn't placed on the 53-man roster for at least a day, he wouldn't have been able to return this season. If he goes on IR, he'll miss the first eight weeks of the season. The Cowboys currently have four tight ends on the roster, including Jason Witten, James Hanna and Geoff Swaim.


Sep 3 2017 - Cooper Rush
  QB Cooper Rush made the team after an impressive preseason and will serve as Dak Prescott's backup this season. Rush, an undrafted free agent, beat out Kellen Moore, the projected backup, and Luke McCown, who were cut. Moore is eligible for the practice squad, but was not signed to the squad on Sunday. There is a chance he could be brought back to the roster if running back Ezekiel Elliott gets put on the suspended list.


Sep 3 2017 - Bene' Benwikere
  CB Bene Benwikere was traded to the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday in exchange for a 2019 conditional sixth-round draft choice Benwikere, a fourth-year player out of San Jose State, had been signed as a free agent during the offseason.


Sep 3 2017 - Brian Price
  DT Brian Price was awared to the Dallas Cowboys off waivers from the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN. The 6-3, 218-pound Price, 23, played in just one game last season for the Packers and spent time on the practice squad.
