Dunbar (knee) is active for Sunday's game in Cleveland, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Available for the first time since Week 4, Dunbar's pass-catching chops would be valuable in previous iterations of Dallas' backfield. However, Ezekiel Elliott has acquitted himself well in that realm, which could result in next to no snaps for Dunbar.
Dunbar (knee) was a full practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Cleveland, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports. A full practice participant throughout the week, Dunbar is seemingly ready to play for the first time since Week 4. His role as a passing-down specialist may be very limited, after rookie Ezekiel Elliott flashed his three-down skillset in Dunbar's absence.
Dunbar (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. Dunbar was unable to suit up for Sunday's win over the Eagles as he dealt with knee soreness throughout the week, but his health appears to be more promising as the Cowboys head into Week 9's tilt against the Browns. Fellow running back Ezekiel Elliott will remain the clear top option out of the backfield regardless.
Dunbar (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Coming out of a bye week, Dunbar was a limited practice participant each day, suggesting he's still dealing with some soreness in his surgically repaired knee. His absence means Ezekiel Elliott will continue to get most of the playing time in obvious passing situations, in addition to handling the bulk of the rushing workload.
Dunbar (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Coming out of a bye, Dunbar practiced in a limited capacity throughout the week, potentially setting him up to play for the first time since Week 4. He doesn't have much stand-alone value as a pass-catching back in a run-heavy offense, but his two-game absence did provide a small boost to Ezekiel Elliott, who drew four targets in both of those games. The rookie had either one or two targets in each of the four games Dunbar played.
