    10/02/16WRDez BryantKNEEQUESTIONABLEBryant (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in San Francisco, though he isn't expected to play, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Despite the designation, Bryant should probably be viewed as closer to doubtful, as he didn't practice all week and hinted that he's unlikely to play. His absence might free up a starting spot for Brice Butler, but Cole Beasley, Jason Witten and Terrance Williams would be the better bets to take on Bryant's usual targets.

    10/02/16GLa'el CollinsTOEOUTLa'El Collins could replace Ronald Leary at left guard for the Cowboys in Week 7, per ESPN Dallas.

    The team has already announced it's switching quarterbacks during their bye week, and are apparently considering other major changes to the offense as well as they prepare to face the Giants next weekend. Collins played well earlier in the year while Leary was injured, and while the move won't solve all the problems on an underachieving offensive line, it could help inject some life into the sputtering running game.

    (Updated 10/14/2015)
    10/02/16DTJack CrawfordSHOULDERQUESTIONABLECrawford (shoulder) was active for the Cowboys' Week 3 contest against the Bears on Sunday, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

    Crawford was questionable entering the matchup, but managed to log 44 of 65 defensive snaps on Sunday. However, he failed to tally a single tackle. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the 49ers.

    (Updated 09/26/2016)
    10/02/16TDoug FreeQUADRICEPSQUESTIONABLEWhen the Cowboys kick off training camp next month, the team is expecting veterans Doug Free, Rolando McClain and Morris Claiborne to be healthy enough to participate, reports The Dallas Morning News.
    10/02/16LBAndrew GachkarNECKQUESTIONABLEGachkar (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.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    10/02/16SJeff HeathKNEEQUESTIONABLEHeath (concussion) was able to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans, recording a tackle and recovering a fumble.

    He should be fine for Week 1 and Heath will serve a depth role for the Cowboys as a backup safety and special teams player.

    (Updated 09/02/2016)
    10/02/16LBMark NzeochaACHILLESQUESTIONABLENzeocha (Achilles) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Nzeocha hasn't been healthy enough to play in any contest this season. He was able to participate in each practice this week, though, but his status will be confirmed before kickoff nonetheless.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16QBTony RomoBACKOUTRomo had X-rays to check the progress of his L1 vertebrae fracture last week, The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Romo's X-rays were simply done to see how his recovery was going and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said everything was on track afterward. Although Jones was unsure when Romo would take the next step in his rehab, Romo's initial 6-to-10 week timetable still appears to be in effect. While Romo continues to nurse his injured back, rookie Dak Prescott will keep Dallas' starting quarterback position.

    (Updated 09/12/2016)
    10/02/16CBOrlando ScandrickHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEScandrick (hamstring) was inactive for the Cowboys' Week 3 game against the Bears on Sunday, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

    Scandrick was questionable to play entering the weekend. However, he ultimately wasn't needed to defend Bears QB Brian Hoyer as the Cowboys were able to win pretty handedly, with a final score of 31-17. It's unclear if Scandrick will be able to return for Week 4.

    (Updated 09/26/2016)
    10/02/16TTyron SmithBACKQUESTIONABLECowboys left tackle Tyron Smith restructured his contract Monday, according to the Dallas Morning News.
    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.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    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.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/01/16LBJaylon SmithKneeOUTSmith (knee) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    By adding Smith to this list, the Cowboys will effectively keep their second round pick sidelined for the first six games of the 2016 season. Reports indicate that Smith is likely to be placed on IR once those six weeks pass. Entering the season, there was a small glimmer of hope that Smith could maybe find a way onto the field this year, but it appears the rookie won't be ready to showcase his health until 2017.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    07/29/16DLDemarcus 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.

    (Updated 06/30/2016)
    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.

    (Updated 07/29/2016)
    07/29/16RBDarren McFaddenElbowOUTMcFadden (elbow) said he may never regain the ability to fully extend his right arm, the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Officially ruled out for at least the first six weeks of the season, McFadden still hasn't practiced since fracturing his elbow in early June. Even if doesn't regain the ability to fully extend his arm, McFadden should be available by mid-season. It does seem quite possible that McFadden's injury could have a long-term impact on his ability to contribute in the passing game, but the Cowboys already have a pair of capable receiving backs in Ezekiel Elliott and Lance Dunbar (knee). As for early downs, Alfred Morris is expected to serve as Elliott's top backup.

    10/02/16RBJamaal CharlesKNEEQUESTIONABLEThough Charles (knee) will be listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Steelers, per BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the running back is nonetheless expected to make his season debut this weekend.

    After approaching the Chiefs' first three games listed as doubtful, it appears as though Charles is poised to see his first game action since suffering a torn ACL last October. Assuming he ends up in uniform Sunday night, we'd still expect to see a solid dose of fellow RB Spencer Ware, though with Charcandrick West ruled out this week, snaps will be up for grabs, which Charles and Knile Davis (to a lesser degree) are candidates to absorb.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBPhillip GainesKNEEQUESTIONABLEGaines (knee) did not participate in practice on Thursday.

    Gaines, who played through the knee injury last Sunday, continues to miss practice time, leaving him questionable for Week 4. If he can't make a go of it this week, look for Steven Nelson and Kenneth Acker to see increased reps.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    10/02/16LBTamba HaliKNEE, HANDQUESTIONABLEHali (hand) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Hali was limited all last week with a knee injury, but ultimately played in Sunday's game against the Jets. It looks as if Hali is now also dealing with a hand injury, and he should be considered questionable as his status is updated in the next couple of days.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    10/02/16TJah ReidKNEE, ANKLEOUTChiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.
    10/02/16RBCharcandrick WestANKLEOUTWest (ankle sprain) won't play Sunday night against the Steelers, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

    Though West is out this week, the Chiefs' backfield is poised to be bolstered by the anticipated return to action of Jamaal Charles. Assuming Charles and Spencer Ware -- who has been leading the team's rushing attack out of the gate this season -- can hold up, West's role once he regains his health figures to be limited.
