Moore (concussion) returned to practice Monday, James Walker of ESPN reports.
Moore was spotted back on the practice field for the first time since suffering a concussion in Miami's second preseason game. Despite only participating in individual drills, it's encouraging to see Moore back on the gridiron. Assuming there are no setbacks, Moore should be ready to serve as Miami's primary backup to Ryan Tannehill in Week 1.
Head coach Adam Gase expects Pead (hamstring) to be sidelined for at least two weeks, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Pead had roughed up his hamstring during Thursday's preseason tilt against the Falcons, but it was initially thought to be minor. That is evidently not the case anymore, and the Dolphins now have a tough decision to make regarding Pead's future with the team. Though he enjoyed a solid preseason, Miami's RB depth chart is a gallery of tailbacks susceptible to injury and there simply may not be room for an already-injured body.
Head coach Adam Gase said after Thursday's game that Suh's ankle was "ok," Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
There was a scary moment in Thursday's preseason game that resulted in Suh gingerly walking back to the locker room with the help of team trainers. Fortunately, Gase's comments suggest that Suh was able to dodge any serious injury to his ankle. The Dolphins figure to have an official update on Suh's status in the coming days.
Howard (knee) will play in the Dolphins' preseason finale Thursday versus the Titans, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.
After missing the entirety of training camp while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, Howard will finally make his NFL debut. Though just the preseason, Thursday's tilt could prove to be valuable preparation for the rookie as he remains on track to play Week 1 and may be handed all the snaps he can handle given the current state of the Dolphins' talent-barren cornerback depth chart.
Wake (achilles) played in Thursday's preseason win over the Falcons, but said afterwards that his achilles is "probably not" at 100 percent, Armando Salguergo of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake is now 10 months removed from his torn achilles tendon that ended his 2015 campaign, and he appears to be making good progress. It's rare for teams to play one of their better players in a preseason game when they aren't totally healthy, so Wake's play on Thursday is an encouraging sign that he's nearing full health, even if he's not there yet. He isn't expected to miss any regular season time due to the injury, even as he continues through the final stages of rehab and recovery.
Ekpre-Olomu was waived/injured by the Dolphins on Monday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Ekpre-Olomu has not been able to play an NFL snap since suffering an ACL in the 2014 Rose Bowl as part of the Oregon Ducks. Once an All-American cornerback at the college level, Ekpre-Olomu will have to prove he is healthy enough to play at a high level before he finds another NFL home, as the knee injury has been one that he just has not been able to shake yet.
Chekwa (thigh) will not play in Saturday's preseason tilt against the Falcons, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Chekwa has not played during the preseason so far and that won't change in the Dolphin's third game, as the corner is still dealing with a thigh injury. Though he returned to practice on Tuesday the team doesn't want to push him too much before he's fully healthy. It's unclear if he'll play in the team's final preseason game, next Thursday against the Titans.
Drake (hamstring) will play in the Dolphins' preseason finale Thursday versus the Titans, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Drake has not played in any of the Dolphins' preseason games due to a lingering hamstring injury. However, participation in Thursday's contest bodes very well for his health entering the regular season. Still, he remains firmly behind both Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster on the team's depth chart and, barring injury to those ahead of him, may struggle to gain any sort of fantasy relevance during his rookie campaign.
Lucas left practice early Friday due to a leg injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
There was no immediate word as to the severity of the injury or to how long Lucas would be out of camp. The sixth-round pick has a chance to make an impact this season if he can impress the coaching staff in camp as the Dolphins are thin at corner.
Jordan (knee) has been notified by the league he is eligible to begin practicing, Adam Schfter of ESPN reports.
While Jordan has been cleared to practice, he is still unable to physically do so. The 26-year-old defensive end is still rehabbing from a knee injury. He has not played since December of 2014, and will face stiff competition for playing time on an already deep D-line.
Crawford (concussion) will go through individual work during Sunday's practice, Jon Machota of Dallas News reports.
Crawford suffered a concussion during practice a week ago and is still going through the league's mandated protocol. He's expected to do individual work during Sunday's practice, which is a step in the right direction for the 26-year-old defensive tackle. Crawford is expected to be healthy and available for Week 1, although he could be held out of the team's preseason finale against the Texans on Sept. 1.
Romo -- who suffered a compression fracture of his L1 vertebra Thursday, is slated to wear a back brace for support over the next few weeks, the Cowboys' official site reports.
While coach Jason Garrett isn't inclined to map out a precise timetable for the QB's return to action, the report does acknowledge that Romo "is likely several weeks away from playing again." While there's been media reports suggesting that Romo is looking at a possible 6-10 week timetable, "others inside the organization are hopeful for a 4-6 week recovery." Either way, as it stands, Dak Prescott remains on track to start at QB for Dallas out of the gate this season. He's currently backed up by Jamiell Showers, though the Cowboys could well add QB depth in the coming days.
Williams (hand) secured one of two targets for 11 yards in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks. The team's official site also reports that he received X-rays on his hand after the game that came back negative.
The Cowboys No. 2 receiver had a chance for a bigger night, but was unable to haul in a second-quarter deep throw from Dak Prescott in the red zone. With respect to his injury, Williams reported that the hand, which he'd broken at Baylor during his sophomore season, had originally "flared up" on him during practice last week. Despite the negative results on the X-rays, Williams reported some discomfort, but it's currently unknown whether it's sufficient to keep him out of any practices this coming weekend.
Bryant (concussion) will go through individual work during Sunday's practice, Jon Machota of Dallas News reports.
Bryant suffered a concussion during Monday's practice and has been sidelined for nearly a week now. He'll be back on the practice field Sunday, but will be limited to individual work, while being held out of team drills. It appears Bryant is nearing a full return, which means he should be good to go for the team's regular season opener. However, there's a good chance he's held out of the Cowboys' preseason finale versus the Texans on Sept. 1.
Dunbar (knee) is in danger of missing the Cowboys' final two preseason games, Bryan Broaddus of the team's official site reports.
Dunbar returned to practice Sunday in a limited capacity, but the Cowboys know what they're getting in the running back and may not feel the need to risk his health any further in preseason action. He's not a lock to make the roster at this point, but his chances are good enough given he avoids any setbacks. Expect the team to ease him back into action throughout this week's practice sessions.
Nzeocha will not return to Friday's matchup with the Dolphins due to an Achilles injury, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The second year linebacker currently projects as the third string middle linebacker on the Jets depth chart. The severity of his injury is not known at this time, but expect an update on his status once the team releases more information.
Irving suffered a groin injury Tuesday and could "miss some time", David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.
Irving's availability for Friday's preseason matchup against the Dolphins appears to be in doubt and a concrete timetable for a return has yet to be released. Irving was expected to see significant reps during that game due to the Cowboys' struggles with current depth on the defensive line, so it's a tough blow for the 22-year-old who was looking for an increased role. Irving was signed off the team's practice squad last season, eventually suiting up in 12 games, while recording 13 tackles and 0.5 sacks.
Brown sat out of Monday's practice while he deals with a sore hamstring, Jon Machota of the Dallas News reports.
The rookie currently projects as the third string cornerback on the right side of the field. Brown was taken in the sixth round of 2016 draft after posting a 4.35, 40-yard dash in the combine. He figures to play more of a special teams role this season if he makes the final roster.
Heath was diagnosed with a concussion and will miss Saturday's preseason opener against the Rams, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Heath was originally being evaluated for a shoulder injury, but it turned out to actually be a concussion. The fourth-year player out of Saginaw Valley is currently listed as the second-string free safety on the Cowboy's roster, but with him out Saturday, expect Isaiah Frey to see more playing time.
Tapper will miss practice Thursday with a sore lower back, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Tapper is slated to be a depth option on the defensive line during the upcoming season. His back is being listed as sore, which seems to indicate it's nothing serious. Don't be surprised to see Tapper back on the field in the near future, although his availability for the team's preseason opener against the Rams on Saturday remains questionable.
Okoye (ankle) left practice early on Sunday after injuring his arm, Sportsday.com reports.
Okoye was already dealing with an ankle injury that he was practicing with prior to injuring his arm. The severity of his arm injury is not known, leaving him without a timetable to return. He'll join the long list of Cowboy's defensive lineman unable to practice. Look for Jack Crawford to see an increase in reps while Okoye is out.
Gachkar (thumb) returned to practice Sunday, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.
His hand is still in a cast to protect the healing digit, but Gachkar will at least have a couple of weeks to get his game legs under him. The thumb injury likely cost him any chance of winning the starting middle linebacker spot that opened up due to Rolando McClain's latest suspension, but Gachkar could still be ready for Week 1 and see significant snaps during the season.
Street (back) returned to practice Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Street was hurt a week ago during practice, suffering injuries to both his leg and back. After some time off for rest and recovery, Street was able to return to the field Thursday, which was much needed for the 25-year-old wide receiver who still needs to make his case for a spot on the team's final roster.
Moore, 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.
Smith (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.
Escobar (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.
Lawrence'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.
McFadden (elbow) has yet to resume practicing as of Sunday, the Cowboys' official site reports.
With no practice reps under his belt and one preseason contest to go, McFadden is on pace to enter the regular season sans game action, which cannot be simulated in drills. At this stage, he would only be a complementary runner anyway due to Ezekiel Elliott's appearance in last Thursday's exhibition and Alfred Morris' competent play this preseason, but McFadden still has no timeline for a return from breaking his elbow in the offseason.
