Romo (back) is not participating in Monday's practice, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.
Romo wasn't expected to return to practice to start this week, and although he's edging closer to that hurdle, his continued absence Monday isn't surprising. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott is anticipated to maintain his starting job for this Sunday's game against the Eagles, but Romo will hope to take the practice field and stake his claim for first-team snaps before long.
Gregory (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.
Smith has begun running and doing linebacker drills, but the nerve in his knee has yet to regenerate, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The team still hasn't ruled Smith out for this season, but his ability to suit up in 2016 (or indeed, play in the NFL at all) will ultimately depend on whether or not the nerve re-fires following the gruesome knee injury that ended his career at Notre Dame. The second round pick is eligible to return to practice on Oct. 17 and the Cowboys would have until Nov. 28 to determine whether they want to add him to the 53-man roster or move him to injured reserve.
McClain (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.
McFadden says he's ready to play after recovering from offseason elbow surgery, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "Elbow is feeling great," McFadden said. "Just sitting back and waiting for my time to get back on the field. It's pretty much up to the coaches. I'm ready to go, so it's just based off their decision."
He's eligible to come off the NFI list this week, but with the Cowboys on bye in Week 7 they will be in no rush to try and find room for McFadden on the 53-man roster. Ezekiel Elliott's tremendous start means that the veteran would be a depth player at best anyway in Dallas, but with backfield injuries starting to pile up around the league McFadden's best chance to see significant action this season might have to come via a trade.
Addae (collarbone) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Addae's status appears to be on the upswing for next week's contest, as the safety was able to practice with the Chargers on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. For this week, however, Adrian Phillips is expected to get the start in place of Addae.
Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Flowers was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, but that wasn't enough to convince the Chargers to activate the corner for Sunday's game, marking the fourth straight game the 30-year-old will miss with symptoms stemming from his Week 3 concussion. Look for Casey Hayward to get the start at corner once again.
Bailey (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.
