The fourth-year pro had one of the plays of the night when he went up to snag a 58-yard heave from rookie QB Dak Prescott in the third quarter. Butler followed it up with a tough touchdown grab on his outside shoulder a play later. At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds and with good downfield speed, the former Raider has a chance for a roster spot with more performances like Friday's over his final two preseason games.
Brice Butler caught four passes on 10 targets for 60 yards in Week 17's loss to Washington.
Acquired from the Raiders after Dez Bryant broke his foot, Butler played in only seven games for the Dallas Cowboys due to injuries of his own, finishing the season with just 12 catches on 26 targets for 258 yards. He'll be in the mix for a depth spot in 2016 along with Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley, plus anyone the club picks up in the draft or through free agency, but don't expect Butler to fill a large role in the Dallas offense.
Brice Butler caught four passes on nine targets for a team-high 74 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.
Dez Bryant (foot) got the day off, which opened the door for Butler to make a couple of impressive catches. The former Raider hasn't been healthy enough in Dallas to really show what he can do, but another solid performance in Week 17 against Washington should put him in the club's 2016 plans.
Brice Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Set for a fourth consecutive absence, Butler is unlikely to have a key role at any point before the end of the season, as Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley are all relatively healthy.
Brice Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, David Helman of the Dallas Cowboys ' official website reports.
Butler's absence won't have much impact now that Dez Bryant is healthy. Butler will likely just be fourth or fifth on the depth chart when he's ready to return.
