    08/16/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDDareus (suspension) has opted to leave the Bills in order to receive treatment. "After careful consideration of recent events within my life, I have made the decision to enter a rehabilitation facility," he said in a statement. "I feel this is the best decision for me, my family and my teammates as I move forward with my career. I appreciate the support of my teammates and the Bills organization through this process."

    Earlier this week, Dareus received his second suspension for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Among other issues in his personal life, he'll extend his time away from the team with the aim of getting on the straight and narrow. If the defensive tackle indeed comes back to the Bills with a different state of mind, his pass-rushing prowess will be valuable, as he's notched 31.5 sacks in 78 career games.

    08/16/16LBManny LawsonUpper bodyPROBABLELawson (pectoral) may be facing a one-game suspension for a domestic violence incident, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports.

    The nature of Lawson's offense is unclear, as violations of the NFL's domestic violence policy are supposed to result in a minimum suspension of six games. The veteran outside linebacker was just activated from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, after tearing his pectoral while lifting weights in the offseason. Between injuries and suspensions, the Buffalo front seven is already looking severely depleted.

    08/10/16LBReggie RaglandKneeOUTRagland's knee has too much swelling for a clear diagnosis to made right now regarding the injury he suffered during last Friday's practice, NFL.com reports.

    Ragland had an initial MRI that revealed what is believed to be a partial ACL tear, but was slated to get a second opinion Monday. However, since his knee is still pretty swollen, coach Rex Ryan could not give an update on his condition following practice. As a result, Ragland's situation will have to continue to be monitored, but Buffalo's signings of veteran linebackers Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne on Sunday seem to indicate Ragland could be slated for an extended sideline stint.

    (Updated 08/08/2016)
    08/08/16DLKyle WilliamsKneePROBABLEWilliams, who was activated off the PUP list Monday, has been practicing all week.

    We'll see if Williams plays in the team's preseason opener Saturday, though there's a noticeable difference in the defense when Williams and Marcell Dareus are out there at the same time.

    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeeUndisclosedNFICoach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that Listenbee (hernia) is not close to returning to practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    It's highly doubtful the super-fast sixth-rounder will be in the lineup come Week 1, so he's looking like a prime PUP or practice squad candidate.

    08/05/16LBAndrew GachkarThumbDOUBTFULGachkar (thumb) is back with the team following thumb surgery, Rob Phillips of Dallas Cowboys.com reports.

    The 27-year-old line backer had surgery done on his thumb Friday, and is currently without a timetable of return. Head coach Jason Garret indicated he will be out "a little while". He is currently doing conditioning work with the team.

    08/03/16RBEzekiel ElliottHamstringPROBABLEElliott (hamstring) is slated to receive up to a dozen snaps in Thursday's preseason contest in Seattle, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Elliott's first game action as a Cowboy is coming on the heels of three consecutive full practices. Of particular interest will be his usage, as reps on third down would substantiate the belief that he'll serve as a bell-cow back. In the end, though, emerging from the contest unscathed is the team's primary goal at this point.

    08/03/16QBKellen MooreAnkleDOUBTFULMoore, who suffered a broken left ankle Tuesday, is expected to miss three to four months, NFL.com reports.

    Moore is slated to undergo surgery Wednesday to address the issue, which for the moment leaves Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers -- a pair of inexperienced signal-callers -- as the team's backup options behind starting QB Tony Romo.

    (Updated 08/03/2016)
    08/01/16DLTyrone CrawfordBackPROBABLECrawford (concussion) won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks, The Dallas Morning News reports.

    He suffered the concussion during Sunday's practice and given how thin their defensive line is, the Cowboys will take no chances with Crawford prior to Week 1.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    07/30/16TEGavin EscobarAchillesQUESTIONABLEEscobar (Achilles) did not practice on Sunday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

    Escobar will get the day off as he continues to nurse a torn Achilles he suffered last season. If he continues to miss practice time he may be in danger of missing the Cowboys' first preseason matchup against the Rams next Saturday.

    07/29/16RBDarren McFaddenElbowNFIMcFadden (elbow) has no timetable for a return to practice, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports. "I'm just working, strengthening it and getting everything back together," McFadden said Sunday.

    Although a recent bone scan yielded positive results, a broken elbow is not to be trifled with. As a result, rest and rehabilitation will dominate McFadden's upcoming schedule, with an unfortunate consequence that he won't be able to stake a claim to the top backup running back job to Ezekiel Elliott. As long as McFadden is sidelined, free-agent pickup Alfred Morris is the favorite to hold down the fort behind Elliott.

    07/29/16LBDamien WilsonUndisclosedNFIWilson (eye) was activated off of the Cowboys' NFI list and participated in Monday's practice, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports

    Dallas' fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Wilson was hit in the eye while playing paintball in late July, but no long-term impairments are expected to manifest. Nonetheless, Wilson earned glowing reports from the Cowboys' coaching staff throughout the team's offseason program and appears headed for a backup role in 2016 behind the likes of Sean Lee and Kyle Wilber.

    07/28/16LBJaylon SmithKneeNFISmith (knee) was placed on the PUP list Friday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Smith continues to deal with nerve damage to his left knee, which was an unfortunate side effect of tearing his ACL and MCL in the Fiesta Bowl with Notre Dame on Jan. 1. However, the nature of the injury didn't stop the Cowboys from using a second-round pick on the linebacker during the 2016 NFL Draft. Afterward, executive vice president Stephen Jones acknowledged that he may not play this season, but owner/GM Jerry Jones later wouldn't shut the door on Smith achieving active status late in the season or during the playoffs, if the Cowboys were to earn a berth. In any case, Smith is likely destined for the IR/designated-to-return list to start the season due to his boss' perceived hope.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/01/16DLDemarcus LawrenceSuspensionSUSPENDLawrence's four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy has been upheld, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

    Lawrence received the four-game suspension back in April and filed an appeal in May. Now that the suspension has been upheld it's clear that Dallas will be without Lawrence, Randy Gregory (suspension), and Rolando McClain (suspension) to start the year, three significant players on the team's front seven. With Lawrence out, Ryan Russell, David Irving, and Benson Mayowa figure to see some extra snaps to start the year.
