    10/17/16QBTony RomoBackOUTRomo (back) likely won't be cleared for practice immediately after the Cowboys' Week 7 bye, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    On Wednesday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relayed that the Cowboys will stick with Dak Prescott as their starting quarterback in Week 8 against the Eagles, thereby relegating Romo to backup duties, at best. If Romo doesn't practice to start the week, as expected, he'll likely find himself on the Cowboys' inactive list yet again. During the bye week, Romo will remain at team headquarters and stay involved in the rehab process with an eye toward ramping up his workload. However, in order to take part in "intense" football activities, his core and back must be strengthened, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    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.

    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.

    08/01/16LBJaylon SmithKneeOUTSmith 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.

    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.

    07/29/16RBDarren McFaddenElbowOUTMcFadden 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.

    10/17/16LBDannell EllerbeQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEEllerbe (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Ellerbe is still awaiting his season debut while he continues to recover from the quad injury. He wasn't able to practice at all this week, so it's difficult to pinpoint when exactly Ellerbe might be back.

    08/24/16WRVincent BrownCalfQUESTIONABLEThe 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.
