    08/05/16LBAndrew GachkarThumbDOUBTFULGachkar (thumb) is back with the team following thumb surgery, Rob Phillips of Dallas Cowboys.com reports.

    The 27-year-old line backer had surgery done on his thumb Friday, and is currently without a timetable of return. Head coach Jason Garret indicated he will be out "a little while". He is currently doing conditioning work with the team.

    (Updated 08/09/2016)
    08/03/16RBEzekiel ElliottHamstringPROBABLEElliott (hamstring) is slated to receive up to a dozen snaps in Thursday's preseason contest in Seattle, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    Elliott's first game action as a Cowboy is coming on the heels of three consecutive full practices. Of particular interest will be his usage, as reps on third down would substantiate the belief that he'll serve as a bell-cow back. In the end, though, emerging from the contest unscathed is the team's primary goal at this point.

    08/03/16QBKellen MooreAnkleDOUBTFULMoore, 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.

    (Updated 08/03/2016)
    08/01/16DLTyrone CrawfordBackPROBABLECrawford (concussion) won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks, The Dallas Morning News reports.

    He suffered the concussion during Sunday's practice and given how thin their defensive line is, the Cowboys will take no chances with Crawford prior to Week 1.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    07/30/16TEGavin EscobarAchillesQUESTIONABLEEscobar (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.

    (Updated 08/07/2016)
    07/29/16RBDarren McFaddenElbowNFIMcFadden (elbow) has no timetable for a return to practice, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports. "I'm just working, strengthening it and getting everything back together," McFadden said Sunday.

    Although a recent bone scan yielded positive results, a broken elbow is not to be trifled with. As a result, rest and rehabilitation will dominate McFadden's upcoming schedule, with an unfortunate consequence that he won't be able to stake a claim to the top backup running back job to Ezekiel Elliott. As long as McFadden is sidelined, free-agent pickup Alfred Morris is the favorite to hold down the fort behind Elliott.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/29/16LBDamien WilsonUndisclosedNFIWilson (eye) was activated off of the Cowboys' NFI list and participated in Monday's practice, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports

    Dallas' fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Wilson was hit in the eye while playing paintball in late July, but no long-term impairments are expected to manifest. Nonetheless, Wilson earned glowing reports from the Cowboys' coaching staff throughout the team's offseason program and appears headed for a backup role in 2016 behind the likes of Sean Lee and Kyle Wilber.

    07/28/16LBJaylon SmithKneeNFISmith (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.

    07/01/16DLDemarcus 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.

    New Orleans Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/15/16LBStephone AnthonyLegQUESTIONABLEAnthony (leg) returned to practice on Monday, NOLA.com reports.

    Anthony was carted off the field with an unspecified leg injury during the Saints' preseason opener against New England. However, New Orleans evidently dodged a bullet as he logged a full practice Monday and appeared to be moving without limitations throughout team drills. Now proven healthy, he'll resume his entrance into the regular season as Rotowire's 26th-ranked IDP prospect.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/15/16DLSheldon RankinsLegOUTRankins, who was carted off during Monday's practice, will have surgery to repair a fractured fibula and is expected to miss six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Rankins' injury is a tough blow to the Saints' defense, which aded him with the 12th overall pick in this year's draft to beef up its front line. Furthermore, the Louisville product was impressive to this point in camp, even intercepting Tom Brady during joint practices with the Patriots last week. With Rankins now sidelined going into the regular season, Nick Fairley, John Jenkins and fellow rookie David Onyemata should see more reps at defensive tackle.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    07/31/16WRVincent BrownUndisclosedNFIThe Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.
