Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree will need ankle surgery and may miss the rest of the season, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Ogletree will either be placed on injured reserve/designated to return or season-ending injured reserve. He can safely be ruled out through November, and can therefore be dropped in IDP leagues. It's a big loss for the Rams, with some combination of Akeem Ayers, Bryce Hager and Cameron Lynch likely to take on Ogletree's snaps.
Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar is slated to undergo surgery to repair his torn left ACL, ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Dunbar -- who is a candidate for IR -- also suffered a partially torn MCL during Sunday's game against the Saints. Now that he is no longer in the Cowboys' backfield mix, Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Christine Michael are left to handle the team's running back duties going forward.
Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler caught his first pass as a Cowboy on Sunday for a 67-yard reception, but injured his hamstring on the play and left the game.
He likely would have scored a touchdown on the play had he not come up lame and staggered out of bounds. The Cowboys potentially lost Lance Dunbar for the season Sunday with a knee injury, so if Butler can get back on the field quickly there could be an opportunity for him to take on a larger role in the offense.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he thinks wide receiver Dez Bryant (foot) has a chance to return for Week 7 against the Giants, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Week 7 represents an absolute best-case scenario, as the Cowboys have acknowledged all along Bryant will at least be out through the Week 6 bye. With his recovery going well, Bryant could be back for Week 7 or Week 8, but it's also quite possible he'll need a few weeks beyond that to heal.
