Terrance Williams - WRPosted 11/25/14 1:13am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams was listed as not practicing Monday, Nov. 24, because of a broken finger tip. Head coach Jason Garrett said he does not expect Williams to have a trouble catching the ball.
Huddle Up: Oddly, shades of teammate Dez Bryant a season ago. Williams, though, has tailed off noticeably over the last four games, recording only 9 catches for 106 yards and no scores. He had 19 receptions for 338 yards and 6 TDs over his first seven contests. Use the injury as an excuse to stay away.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 11/12/14 10:05am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is in the final year of his rookie contract. Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has expressed an interest in having Bryant finish his career with the team, and chief operating officer Stephen Jones said Tuesday, Nov. 11, that the team has made offers. 'We've offered him some really nice contracts,' Stephen Jones said. 'We also have to respect his views on where it is. My take on those things is that they ultimately find a way.'
Huddle Up: In the meantime, any offers, negotiations or contract concerns don't seem to be weighing on the WR as he's once again ranked among the top five fantasy wideouts with 127 points on 56 catches for 793 yards and 8 TDs through 10 games.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 11/10/14 9:52am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (cramps) left the Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars for intravenous fluids in the third quarter due to hydration issues. Despite leaving part of the game, he managed to haul in touchdowns of 35 and 68 yards in the second quarter, finishing with the second-most receiving yards of his career with 158.
Huddle Up: Bryant owners will call for an IV every week for the WR after he bounced back from his 2-15-1 Week 9 with easily his best fantasy day of the season. Of course, Tony Romo's return to the lineup might have had a little something to do with it as well.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 11/10/14 10:03am ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (head) left to be evaluated for concussion in the Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London. However, he was able to return to the game and had rush attempts in the fourth quarter before RB Joseph Randle finished up.
Huddle Up: Murray was able to hit 100 yards exactly on 18 carries to post his 9th 100-yard rushing game in 10 outings this season. He also added 31 yards on a season high-matching 6 receptions, but the only downside for Murray's fantasy owners is that it was Randle who scored the Cowboys' only rushing TD of the game. Dallas is on bye next week, giving Murray a much-needed break after 280 touches to date.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/9/14 7:50pm ET
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) made it through the Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars without any setbacks. 'Just sore,' Romo said Sunday, Nov. 9. 'Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play.'
Huddle Up: Romo has a bye next week to rest his back. He'll be a QB1 when Dallas faces the Giants in Week 12.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/7/14 12:57pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) practiced Friday, Nov. 7, and should be ready to play in Week 10 Sunday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: A little surprising the Cowboys are planning on Romo this week, but a Friday practice suggests he'll be under center Sunday. Expect the game plan, however, to be run-heavy and also heavy on protecting Romo; also, should the Cowboys get up a substantial margin you'll see Brandon Weeden taking snaps in the second half.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/6/14 2:35pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to play in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars after returning to practice Thursday, Nov. 6, according to general manager Jerry Jones. 'I'm anticipating him playing, have no reason to think that he won't, and this will be a nice little practice session for him out there today,' Jones said. 'But my expectations are for him to play.' Romo and head coach Jason Garrett aren't committing one way or another just yet, though. Garrett continues to stress that the final decision on whether Romo plays will come down to the medical staff.
Huddle Up: Jones' comments aside, it's looking fairly promising for Romo this Sunday, but be prepared for another game-time decision.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/5/14 9:27am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and stayed back at the hotel for treatment, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: Romo has been taking Wednesdays off all season, so this isn't necessarily a good indicator of his availability for Sunday. Let's see how treatment progresses and whether or not Romo can get in a practice session later in the week before writing him off for Sunday's tilt.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/4/14 4:22pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he felt fine after taking the flight to London Monday, Nov. 3, and he took part in a walk-through Tuesday, Nov. 4, throwing light passes during a Play 60 event. The team and Romo are optimistic that he can play in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 'It's progressing,' Romo said of his back. 'Each day it gets a little bit of improvement, and I think that you just keep trying to figure out what you're able to do each day and then you go on to the next day. We'll figure out if we're able to improve enough to be ready to go.' His decision to play will likely come down to pain tolerance.
Huddle Up: It very well could come down to another game-time decision, but unlike the London game 2 weeks ago, this will be a fantasy-friendly 1 p.m. (ET) start. Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and DeMarco Murray owners are certainly rooting for a Romo return.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/3/14 12:44pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to play in Week 10, according to owner Jerry Jones. 'I do see him playing,' Jones told NFL Network's Desmond Purnell. 'He's going on the trip to London, and logic tells you that we wouldn't have him make that trip to London and back if we didn't think he was going to play, so it does depend on the type of week he has at practice. But if he has the week we expect, he should be our quarterback.'
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Romo will actually play. This is just the opinion of Jerry Jones after he watched Brandon Weeden struggle. The decision will ultimately be up to team doctors. So in other words, Jerry Jones.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/1/14 2:26pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to take part in the team's walkthrough Saturday, Nov. 1, to see how he feels. Romo still may be a game-time decision for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Romo is shaping up to be a true game-time decision. Romo is tough and has played through pain before but owners need to have another option ready in case he's inactive. The Cowboys/Cardinals game does kick off at 1:00 ET Sunday, which is a plus for fantasy owners.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/1/14 7:26pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's (back) status is iffy for the next two games, in the opinion of beat writer Calvin Watkins. The team flies to London for Week 10, and the travel clouds his status for the game.
Huddle Up: It was revealed that Romo has two broken bones in his back and is a game time decision for Sunday's contest against Arizona. There's a chance Dallas could sit Romo for the next two games with a bye in Week 11. Brandon Weeden would start if Romo misses any time.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/31/14 3:19pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) missed his third straight day of practice Friday, Oct. 31, and he'll have to be able to move better before being allowed to play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Jason Garrett said the team doesn't need to know before Sunday, Nov. 2, if Romo can play. Romo has had treatment on his back all week, but he hasn't done any football activities. QB Brandon Weeden would receive the start if Romo can't play.
Huddle Up: To be sure, it's looking iffy with Romo having missed practice all week, but his fantasy owners have also had all week to get their Plan Bs in order.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/30/14 4:41pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) didn't take part in the walk-through Thursday, Oct. 30, and will not practice with the team. However, head coach Jason Garrett remains hopeful that Romo can play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. 'He's not ruled out for this game by any means,' Garrett said. 'He's getting himself mentally ready. He's in the meetings. He's a part of our football team, and hopefully as the week goes on, it feels better and he can function and it'll give him a chance to play.' Romo and the team continue to say that his injury is not related to his disc problem that he had surgery on last year. Romo said he'd play if the question is only about pain tolerance, and the Cowboys are looking into modifications for Romo's pads if he is to play Sunday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: Romo owners are going to have wait at least until Friday -- and most likely a game-time decision Sunday -- for the official word on the QB.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/29/14 10:34am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is expected to miss time with his back contusion, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys host Arizona in a game which may have NFC playoff seeding ramifications, so expect them to find a way to get Romo to the field. If not, Brandon Weeden was competent in relief of Romo against the Redskins and would get the nod this week.
Justin Durant - LBPosted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET
Dallas Cowboys LB Justin Durant (torn biceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Tough blow for Durant's IDP owners and the Cowboys, who have lost their leading tackler for the rest of the season. 2012 fourth-round pick Kyle Wilber is the next man up on the depth chart, but the team also signed veteran Tim Dobbins on Wednesday.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's (back) Week 9 status will be based on pain tolerance, according to owner Jerry Jones. Romo could be a game-time decision.
Huddle Up: Romo, of course, isn't practicing Wednesday as usual, but see how the QB manages the injury throughout the rest of the week. Romo owners, though, should already have a backup plan in place.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/28/14 12:01am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27, after being evaluated in the locker room following a sack.
Huddle Up: Romo looked as if he argued his way back into the contest but was unable to lead Dallas to any points on the team's final possession of the fourth quarter and their lone drive in OT of the 20-17 loss. He finished 17-of-28 for 209 yards and a TD. He had one rush for 1 yard and was sacked five times by the blitz-heavy Washington D. The Cowboys now have a short week leading up to Sunday's home game against the Cardinals so see what Romo's prognosis is over the coming days.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/28/14 1:36am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray became the first running back to reach 1,000 yards this season during the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27. He finished the game with 19 carries for 141 yards and four catches for 80 yards.
Huddle Up: Murray has now eclipsed 100 rushing yards in each of his 8 games and his 221 yards from scrimmage Monday night were the second-highest single-game total of his career. On the flip side, Murray failed to get into the end zone for only the second game all season and coughed up his fifth fumble of the year, but he still leads all fantasy RBs by a comfortable margin.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/28/14 1:36am ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (undisclosed) took a knee to his surgically repaired back on a sack before exiting the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27 in the third quarter. He was diagnosed with a back contusion. X-rays, however, were negative, and the QB returned to the game late in the fourth quarter.
Huddle Up: Romo said afterward that since he was able to return to Monday's game, he doesn't have any concerns about being able to start Week 9 vs. the Cardinals. That is, of course, provided any further issues or complications don't crop up over the ensuing 6 days. Stay turned ...
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/28/14 11:27am ET
Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) suffered a contusion near the surgical site in his back Monday, Oct. 27. Pain tolerance and mobility will be two factors in play in the short term.
Huddle Up: That Romo returned from the injury in the same game is a good sign, and he definitely played through pain last year--at least right up until he had to sit out the final game. The advisable step would be to secure your Romo fantasy backup plan now in advance of their Week 11 bye, and plan on keeping that backup on your roster just in case.
Justin Durant - LBPosted 10/28/14 11:27am ET
Dallas Cowboys OLB Justin Durant (biceps) suffered a torn right biceps in the Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27, and will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Another blow for the Cowboys D, which has been surprisingly resilient despite the injuries. Maybe they explore the Brian Urlacher option again?
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/28/14 3:59pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will undergo an MRI exam Tuesday, Oct. 28, for a better look at his bruised back. X-rays came back negative Monday, Oct. 27, and he was able to return to the Week 8 game after taking a pain-killing shot. The team expects Romo to be ready to play the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9. He finished the game with 209 yards after going 17-for-28, and he was sacked a season-high five times.
Huddle Up: Check for the prognosis later, but plan on proceeding with Romo as your starter and a backup plan in place for now.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/27/14 11:07pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (undisclosed) was tended to on the field by trainers after being sacked ein the third quarter of the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 27. He went to the locker room after walking off the field slowly and was replaced
Huddle Up: On the sack, Romo took a shot to his back, which has been surgically repaired in each of the last 2 offseasons, and was down on the turf for a couple minutes after the hit. The exact nature of the injury remains undisclosed, but it was reported on the ESPN telecast that there is even a chance Romo could return to the game.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/25/14 7:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ribs) practiced Saturday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8 Monday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: Romo was never in danger of missing Monday's game against the Redskins. He's a Top 10 quarterback this week.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/25/14 7:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (shoulder) practiced Saturday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8 Monday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: Bryant is all set to go for Monday night's game with Washington. He has a strong matchup against rookie CB Bashaud Breeland, so fantasy owners should expect a big week from Bryant.
Gavin Escobar - TEPosted 10/20/14 10:44am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar had career-highs with three receptions, 65 yard and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Giants. It was his first multi-touchdown game.
Huddle Up: Escobar is far from the first option in Dallas' offense, but he's capitalizing on an expanded role by giving Tony Romo another viable red-zone option. And when Jason Witten finally hangs 'em up, Escobar looks to be capable of handling at least some of his workload.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/20/14 10:44am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is the first player in NFL history with over 100 rushing yards in each of his first seven games to begin a season, surpassing Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown.
Huddle Up: Murray is having a remarkable season, capitalizing on the Cowboys' renewed commitment to the ground game and a line that features the teams' last three first-round picks
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/17/14 2:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been incredibly effective this season, ranking fourth in passer rating (100.5). He has completed 68.6 percent of his passes for 1,510 yards and 11 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Romo has been more productive while sitting out of practices on Wednesdays to focus on core-strengthening exercises. He has completed 70.2 percent of his passes for 1,053 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions in the last four games. The last two games, Romo has shown an ability to escape the pocket and make plays deep down the field.
Huddle Up: Since his ugly three-interception outing in the season opener, Romo has posted a shiny 10-2 TD-to-interception ratio, and with his season average of 20.47 fantasy points per game, he's certainly a part of the weekly QB1 conversation.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 10/16/14 2:03pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo had his ankle taped but is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: There was some talk that Romo might miss more than his usual Wed. practice this week, but he was out there Thursday and will definitely be good to go in Sunday's matchup against the Giants.
