    As wildly unpopular as the take may be, former Dallas Cowboys rival Eric Davis says sitting Dak Prescott when Tony Romo is healthy is the right call for several reasons.

    10/24/16WRTaylor GabrielConcussionQUESTIONABLEGabriel (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Gabriel is expected to play Sunday against the Packers given he's able to pass through the league's concussion protocol during the week. Eric Weems fills in the Falcons' No. 5 spot at receiver if Gabriel is ultimately forced to miss additional game action, which doesn't seem too likely at this point.

    10/24/16WRC.J. GoodwinHamstringQUESTIONABLEGoodwin (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Chargers, the Centre Daily Times reports.

    Goodwin went down last week against the Seahawks. His absence opens the door for Jalen Collins to see his first chance at significant playing time this season.

    10/17/16QBTony RomoBackOUTRomo (back) was on the practice field Wednesday, taking snaps, faking handoffs, and throwing with velocity, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    While Romo wasn't in uniform like the rest of his teammates, he made a variety of throws during individual drills, including in the pocket and on the run, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. In particular, Romo displayed impressive velocity on tosses of 25-30 yards. There's little doubt that he still has hurdles to surpass, as evidenced by Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram stating Romo won't suit up for Sunday night's clash with the Eagles. However, Williams also noted the compression fracture in Romo's back has completed the healing process, which was likely the impetus for his elevated workload Wednesday. In the meantime, Dak Prescott will serve as the Cowboys' starting QB.

    09/20/16DLRandy GregorySuspensionSUSPENDGregory (suspension) was suspended for an additional 10 games and won't be eligible to return until Monday, December 19.

    Gregory is suspended for a grand total of 14 games due to multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. It comes as disappointing news for the Cowboys, as substance abuse issues have clouded Gregory's once promising NFL career. Once he is eligible to return, he could compete for a starting defensive end position with the likes of Jack Crawford.

    09/08/16LBJames MorrisUndisclosedOUTMorris (undisclosed) was placed on the Cowboys' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

    The specifics of his injury are still vague. Whatever it may be, though, does not appear to overly serious and Morris should be set to return in 2017.

    08/01/16LBJaylon SmithKneeOUTSmith has begun running and doing linebacker drills, but the nerve in his knee has yet to regenerate, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    The team still hasn't ruled Smith out for this season, but his ability to suit up in 2016 (or indeed, play in the NFL at all) will ultimately depend on whether or not the nerve re-fires following the gruesome knee injury that ended his career at Notre Dame. The second round pick is eligible to return to practice on Oct. 17 and the Cowboys would have until Nov. 28 to determine whether they want to add him to the 53-man roster or move him to injured reserve.

    07/29/16LBRolando McClainSuspensionSUSPENDMcClain (suspended) will be placed on the Cowboys' reserve/did not report list, ESPN.com reports.

    McClain has already been suspended for the first 10 games of the upcoming season, but was still expected to report for training camp Wednesday. Since McClain, who skipped most of Dallas' offseason program, remains away from the team, his status appears increasingly shaky. Furthermore, after the Cowboys signed veteran Justin Durant recently, McClain's open roster spot could be filled by another linebacker, making McClain more expendable.

    07/29/16RBDarren McFaddenElbowOUTMcFadden says he's ready to play after recovering from offseason elbow surgery, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "Elbow is feeling great," McFadden said. "Just sitting back and waiting for my time to get back on the field. It's pretty much up to the coaches. I'm ready to go, so it's just based off their decision."

    He's eligible to come off the NFI list this week, but with the Cowboys on bye in Week 7 they will be in no rush to try and find room for McFadden on the 53-man roster. Ezekiel Elliott's tremendous start means that the veteran would be a depth player at best anyway in Dallas, but with backfield injuries starting to pile up around the league McFadden's best chance to see significant action this season might have to come via a trade.
