    06/14/16RBDarren McFaddenElbow McFadden (elbow) could miss three months, ESPN.com reports.

    The Cowboys haven't provided any hints about McFadden's timeline since June 14, when head coach Jason Garrett said the veteran running back will miss "a couple months" after having surgery on his fractured elbow, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Early reports suggested that McFadden is expected to return at some point during training camp, which would likely give him a shot to be ready for Week 1. Subsequent reports have been a bit more pessimistic, suggesting McFadden will miss 2-3 months, with his rehab process potentially stretching closer to the regular season. Alfred Morris figures to take most of the second-team reps when training camp begins, but sixth-round rookie Darius Jackson could push for a role.

    05/18/16RBLance DunbarKneeQUESTIONABLEAlthough he wasn't a participant during Tuesday's minincamp, Dunbar (knee) was able to run routes on the side, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    That's encouraging news for the scatback, but the Cowboys likely won't know until training camp begins whether Dunbar has a shot at being ready for Week 1. Even if he is far enough along in his recovery from a torn ACL to avoid the PUP list, his role could be a lot smaller this season with fourth overall pick Ezekiel Elliott expected to become the team's new three-down back, lessening the need for a passing-down specialist like Dunbar in the offense.

    05/18/16QBTony RomoCollarbonePROBABLERomo (collarbone) is expected to be a full participant when the Cowboys start OTAs in late May, the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Romo has reportedly recovered from his March 8 surgery a bit faster than expected, allowing him to take part in offseason workouts the past couple weeks. Meanwhile, Dez Bryant (foot) may not be ready for OTAs or June minicamp, but there's been no indication that he's behind schedule. Assuming Bryant avoids any major setbacks, Romo will have an excellent supporting cast in what figures to be a balanced Dallas offense.

    05/01/16LBSean LeeKnee Lee (knee) expects to be ready for training camp, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Lee underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee at the start of May. His initial recovery timeline was only two weeks, so it comes as no surprise he expects to be ready for training camp. Lee was quoted saying he's "right on track" in his recovery, so it appears everything is going as planned. With Lee expected to start on the weak side again during the upcoming season, his knee shouldn't force him to miss any valuable reps moving forward.

    04/25/16DLRandy GregorySuspension Gregory has been suspended for the first four games of next season due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Gregory notoriously slipped to the second round in last year's draft, despite being considered one of the best pass rushers available, after he was caught with marijuana in his system at the combine, and it looks like he hasn't yet cleaned up his act. This could put more pressure on the Cowboys to either re-sign Greg Hardy, select another pass-rushing DE like Joey Bosa or Noah Spence in this year's draft, or both.

    04/20/16DLDemarcus LawrenceSuspension Lawrence is appealing his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Selected 34th overall in the 2014 draft, Lawrence had 55 tackles and eight sacks in 16 games last season, with seven of his sacks coming over the final eight weeks. Any reduction of his suspension would be fantastic news for a Dallas team that otherwise lacks talent at defensive end. 2015 second-rounder Randy Gregory is also suspended for the first four games of 2016 due to a substance abuse policy violation.

    04/08/16WRDez BryantFoot Bryant (foot) will be a full go July 28 when training camp begins, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Though fully recovered from January surgery, Bryant has only been a partial participant at minicamp, with the Cowboys unsurprisingly opting for an abundance of caution. Bryant made an interesting admission Thursday, saying he doesn't think he worked hard enough last year, when he missed most of the team's offseason program due to a contract holdout. He now plans to significantly increase his activity level during the six weeks between minicamp and training camp, with his docket including some individual work with Tony Romo, who has already been cleared for all activities.

    04/08/16DBBarry ChurchArm Church ended the season on IR due to a broken arm, but still recorded 117 tackles in 15 games.

    It's the second time in his career that he's topped 100 tackles in a season, but Church failed to record an interception or even a pass defended in 2015, and the 27-year-old safety has increasingly been seen as a liability in pass coverage. First round pick Byron Jones seems like a lock to fill one of the safety spots for the Cowboys next season, but there's no guarantee that Church will be lined up next to him.

    04/08/16DLTyrone CrawfordShoulder Crawford says his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is going well, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "It's extremely helpful to just have the strength back that I didn't have last year," Crawford said Friday. "I'm back up to almost where I was before the injury. I'm feeling real good. I'm feeling confident about it as well."

    He also said he's prepared to move to defensive end for the first month of the season to cover for suspensions to Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence, a position he has played in the past before moving to the three-technique DT spot in coordinator Rod Marinelli's defense. "I'm going to do what I have to do. It's definitely a possibility if needed," Crawford said. "We can't have guys taking on such a big role they haven't taken on before, so it's all of us working together helping each other out." If Crawford does see significant snaps at DE over the first four weeks, he could be sneaky source of sacks in deep IDP leagues.

    05/18/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

    The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.
