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.
Coach Jack Del Rio said that there is a "good chance" that Nelson (knee) won't play in Saturday's preseason affair with Tennessee, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports.
Nelson has missed the entire Raiders' offseason program nursing his knee and hasn't practiced at all this week. The road to recovery has been a bumpy one for Oakland's starting free safety, but his absence could be more of a result of the Raiders' wanting to see him at full strength before he suits up again. Veteran safety Nate Allen is expected to see an increased amount of reps while Nelson remains sidelined.
Edwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.
Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.
Joseph did not practice on Thursday for undisclosed reasons, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Joseph missed time in the offseason while he recovered from an ACL tear suffered back in October, but he hasn't missed any time in camp due to the injury. It's unclear if he's been given the day off for rest or if he's dealing with another injury of sorts. He should be considered day-to-day until more information is available. TJ Carrie figures to get some reps with the first team while Joseph is sidelined.
Reece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.
Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.
Walford (knee) failed to receive a single target during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.
Walford was the first tight end off the bench with Lee Smith getting the start. Walford remains the better fantasy option despite being listed No. 2 on the depth chart due to Smith's role as a blocker. If Walford earns more snaps than just obvious passing downs throughout the regular season, he could become a productive factor in the team's aerial attack.
