Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/21/15 1:00pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) has been activated from the Reserve/Designated to Return list Saturday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: As expected, Romo was activated and will start Sunday against the Dolphins for the first time since Week 2. Owners should expect Romo to be a little rusty but unless you have a clearly better option available, Romo should be in your starting lineups this week.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 11/20/15 4:05pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (groin) started having an issue with his groin Wednesday, Nov. 18, and he didn't do much in practice Thursday and was still limited Friday. He's officially listed as questionable for the Week 11 game at Miami.
Huddle Up: McFadden has avoided the big injuries have have marked his seasons past, but perhaps the heavy workload is starting to take its toll as he's averaged 26.3 touches over the last four games. It's also pertinent and interesting to note that the recently signed Robert Turbin reportedly is now No. 2 on the Cowboys' RB depth chart.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 11/19/15 6:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 19, with a groin injury. The injury is not believed to be serious, however, and the Cowboys were just keeping McFadden fresh.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners are urged to keep riding Run-DMC as he's had at least 20 touches in each of his last four games.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/18/15 4:07pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) went through his normal walkthrough Wednesday, Nov. 18, but did not practice. He's expected to be a full-go Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: in other words, no cause for any alarm for those Romo owners and Cowboys fans eagerly anticipating the QB's return.
Brandon Weeden - QBPosted 11/17/15 1:59pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden was released Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys have chosen to go with Matt Cassel over Weeden as their No. 2 QB with Tony Romo making his long-awaited comeback this week. Weeden completed 71-of-98 passes for 739 yards, two TDs and two interceptions during Romo's absence but has lost 11 straight starts dating back to his rookie season of 2012 in Cleveland.
Christine Michael - RBPosted 11/17/15 3:54pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael was released Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: After registering on the fantasy hype meter a few week ago, Michael's run in Big D has ended after all of five games and 53 yards on 16 touches, leaving rookies Rod Smith and Trey Williams behind Darren McFadden on RB depth chart that earlier this season seemingly had too many options.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/16/15 7:40pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) is expected to be cleared from the short-term Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 18, and play in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins, according to a source. Romo has missed two months with a fractured collarbone. 'Tony's had a good couple of weeks of practice with us,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'We anticipate him being able to practice this week.'
Huddle Up: Romo will be welcomed with open arms by the Cowboys and the fantasy owners of Dallas pass-catchers as the team has gone 0-7 since his Week 7 injury with only six TD passes and seven interceptions.
Sean Lee - LBPosted 11/16/15 7:46pm ET
Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Once again, it's been an injury-interrupted season for Lee, the team's second-leading tackler, and he'll try to stay healthy for the stretch run with the Cowboys needing every win they can get after dropping seven straight.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 11/12/15 3:04pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will be limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 12, but the team is confident he'll progress this week.
Huddle Up: It looks like things are progressing in the right direction after Bryant sat out Wednesday so start counting on having him available Sunday until further notice.
Jason Witten - TEPosted 11/11/15 12:23am ET
Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten needs six catches to become the fourth player in NFL history with 12 total -- and 12 consecutive -- seasons of at least 50 receptions.
Huddle Up: The old vet keeps rolling along, leading the Cowboys and ranking second among tight ends with 44 receptions having caught four or more passes in seven of eight games. And, of course, that's been with the still-spinning Big D QB carousel.
Sean Lee - LBPosted 11/10/15 3:43pm ET
Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (concussion) likely will be doubtful to play in Week 10, according to owner Jerry Jones.
Huddle Up: With it being the second concussion of the season for the Cowboys' leading tackler, we'd be shocked to see him out there Sunday against the Bucs but keep an eye on his prognosis throughout the week nonetheless.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/10/15 8:17pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will not be shut down for the season if the Cowboys are unable to contend for a playoff spot, according to owner Jerry Jones. The Cowboys are on a six- game losing streak without Romo, but he'll be eligible to return from the short-term Reserve/Injured list Nov. 22 against the Miami Dolphins. He'll take part in on-field workouts for the second straight week, likely starting Thursday, Nov. 12. Romo will continue to work with the scout team in order to give QB Matt Cassel first-ream repetitions.
Huddle Up: The end of the (long) wait is certainly within sight for Romo owners and Cowboys fans and those needing QB help, particularly in shallower leagues, should check now to see if Romo is on the waiver wire.
Joseph Randle - RBPosted 11/3/15 2:51pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was released Tuesday, Nov. 3, according to team sources.
Huddle Up: It hasn't mattered with some other, more productive players on the Dallas roster, but Randle's checkered off-field track record and looming league suspension more than offset his so-so stats (76 rushes-313 yards-4 TDs), leaving Daren McFadden and Christine Michael atop the Cowboys' RB depth chart.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 11/2/15 9:22am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) had two catches for 12 yards in a 13-12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8.
Huddle Up: The good news for Cowboys fans and Bryant's fantasy owners is that the foot wasn't really the problem. The bad news is, Matt Cassel remains his quarterback for the foreseeable future.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/2/15 1:34pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) is still 'on target' to return when eligible in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins. The fact that Romo isn't expected to practice this week isn't a bad sign.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys desperately need Romo back after dropping five straight games without him. Dallas will obviously do whatever it can to get Romo on the field against the Dolphins.
Tony Romo - QBPosted 11/2/15 7:42pm ET
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (clavicle) will receive some individual work and possibly some scout team work this week during practice, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
Huddle Up: The desperation is growing in Big D with the Cowboys losing their fifth straight game Sunday since Romo's injury. Romo, though, isn't eligible to return until Week 11 so the Cowboys and fantasy owners of Dallas pass-catchers are going to have to be patient for a few more weeks.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/31/15 2:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman is expected to shadow Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) if he is active for the team's Week 8 game.
Huddle Up: Sherman doesn't often shadow receivers, so we'll have to wait and see. However, it makes sense to have him shadow Bryant because he's by far the Cowboys' top offensive weapon. Bryant will be a low-end WR2 in his first game back assuming he's active.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/30/15 10:12am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) should play Sunday, Nov. 1, barring a setback, according to a source. The team is optimistic he'll make his return against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend.
Huddle Up: All signs are positive for Dez... except, of course, Matt Cassel is still his quarterback and he's still facing the Seahawks. The Plan B you've been rolling with in Bryant's absence is likely your better bet for another week.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/30/15 7:12pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) said he would play if it were up to him in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he's listed as questionable for the game. The final decision will be up to the medical staff and the coaches. The team wants to see how his foot responds to practice Friday, Oct. 30. Bryant was able to cut it loose in practice this week but wanted to do more. The Cowboys and Nike came up with a reinforced sole for the bottom of his right cleat when he returns to action, and Bryant also went up a shoe size to accommodate the special orthotic.
Huddle Up: Bryant is expected to return on Sunday if he doesn't suffer a setback. Dez will be a WR2 against a tough Seahawks' defense with Matt Cassel at quarterback.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 10/29/15 10:11am ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) missed a scheduled treatment Wednesday, Oct. 28, after he was told he was demoted in favor of RB Darren McFadden. Randle is expected back at the facility Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Evidently Randle didn't handle being bumped to second string very well. Maybe he should have played better, or not gotten hurt. For now McFadden is the belle of the Cowboys' backfield, but a date with the Seahawks may shuffle the deck yet again so stay tuned.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/29/15 10:11am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) is on target to play in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks, vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday, Oct. 28, although he stopped short of declaring the receiver ready. 'He looked good in practice and should do even more tomorrow,' Jones said. 'It's premature to say he'll play Sunday, but he's on target to play this weekend if he continues.'
Huddle Up: Jones isn't a doctor but he does play one from time to time when it comes to the Cowboys' injury report. The game Bryant is targeting will be against a rejuvenated Legion of Boom, and the Cowboys still have Matt Cassel at quarterback so even if Dez is healthy he's a problematic fantasy start at best this week.
Joseph Randle - RBPosted 10/29/15 4:48pm ET
Updating earlier reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is facing a one- or two-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy, stemming from a February marijuana-possession arrest in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. The charges were eventually dropped, but the incident was judged to have violated the league's personal-conduct policy.
Huddle Up: It's not clear when the suspension will be handed down, but between that, Randle's current oblique issue and the announcement this week that Darren McFadden has moved into the lead role following his strong Week 7 effort, Randle's fantasy value is plummeting fast.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/28/15 2:24pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28, for the first time since Sept. 11. His participation was limited, but it's a positive sign for his chances of playing in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks. Bryant hasn't had any added soreness in his foot after working out the last two-plus weeks.
Huddle Up: So far, so good in Bryant's quest for an early return, but let's see how the rest of the practice week goes as there's always a risk for a setback.
Joseph Randle - RBPosted 10/28/15 8:47pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Randle isn't expected to play this week. Darren McFadden will be a RB2 against the Seahawks with Randle out.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 10/27/15 12:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden ran for 152 yards in Week 7 against the New York Giants, his fourth-highest single-game total of his career. Head coach Jason Garrett thought McFadden was outstanding and that he has earned the right to see more touches moving forward. 'Absolutely,' Garrett said. 'We will get back to work (Tuesday) and we will give him his opportunities and keep the whole thing competitive for everybody. But he has certainly earned some more touches.' McFadden was the first 100-yard rusher for Dallas this year.
Huddle Up: McFadden looked as good Sunday as he has in years -- and most importantly seems to be healthy for a change. With Joseph Randle dealing with an oblique injury, this appears to be Run-DMC's chance to seize the Cowboys' starting job and run with it.
Darren McFadden - RBPosted 10/26/15 2:03pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) is dealing with an oblique injury and is likely to miss some time, according to a source. Randle will be re-evaluated Monday, Oct. 26. RB Darren McFadden had a season-high 152 rushing yards in the Week 7 loss to the New York Giants in Randle's absence.
Huddle Up: With Randle likely out, McFadden will see a majority of the touches in Dallas. There's finally some clarity in the Cowboys' backfield with McFadden being a RB2 going forward. He should be owned in all leagues.
Joseph Randle - RBPosted 10/25/15 11:32pm ET
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (back) exited with a strained back against the New York Giants in Week 7 after rushing for 24 yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Darren McFadden shined with over 100 yards rushing while Randle was out. Randle has been average this season, so expect McFadden to get the start next week regardless of his health.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/24/15 3:59pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: As expected, Bryant won't play on Sunday. He has a shot to return next week but it's still not a lock.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/23/15 2:55pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) continues to make progress from his foot injury and will travel with the team in Week 7 against the New York Giants, but he is very unlikely to actually play in the game.
Huddle Up: Bryant is making progress, but his return to game action realistically is a week or two away.
Dez Bryant - WRPosted 10/23/15 9:23pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) did not travel with the team Friday, Oct. 23, so he could give his foot more time to rest. Bryant is still considered doubtful for the Week 7 game against the New York Giants but probably will be ruled out if he does not make the trip Saturday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: Bryant will hope to make his return next week. He was never a realistic option to play against the Giants.
