02/23/17LBJaylon SmithKneeOUTSmith (knee) is running and cutting without issues, ESPN reports.

Smith is sporting a leg brace to help lift up his foot while the nerves in his injured knee regenerate. He's expected to be ready in time for OTAs in May and the fact he continues to up his involvement in offseason workouts only affirms that notion. It isn't clear how long he'll need to wear the brace, but if push comes to shove, Smith will still be able to play even if he fails to shed the appendage. The only question is whether it will limit his effectiveness.

01/26/17DLTyrone CrawfordShoulderQUESTIONABLECrawford underwent shoulder surgery on Thursday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Crawford had surgery on his right rotator cuff last offseason and had surgery on his left shoulder Thursday. He dealt with shoulder, back, and hamstring injuries throughout the year but he's expected to be recovered in time for offseason practices.

01/25/17DLRyan DavisKneeQUESTIONABLEDavis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Clarence Hill Jr of the Star-Telegram reports.

Davis exited Monday's win over the Lions due to the knee injury and will now have his season cut short as the Cowboys begin to look ahead to the playoffs. The team signed fellow defensive lineman Richard Ash off the Jaguars practice squad to replace Davis. The Cowboys are dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, but will have a couple weeks to rest up before the divisional round of the playoffs.

01/25/17TEJames HannaKneeQUESTIONABLEHanna's (knee) timeline for return is unclear, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Hanna ended the 2016 season on injured reserve after requiring a second surgery in November to repair a knee injury he sustained last summer. He still has roughly two months until offseason workouts begin, but there is no indication he'll be ready to take the field by then. When healthy, Hanna could be in line to compete with Geoff Swaim for the No. 2 tight end role in 2017 with Gavin Escober set to hit free agency.

01/25/17TEGeoff SwaimPectoralQUESTIONABLESwaim (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Swaim sustained a season-ending pectoral injury in Sunday's victory over the Steelers. Only Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar remain as healthy options at tight end.

01/25/17DLCharles TapperBackQUESTIONABLETapper (back) suffered a setback with his back injury and doesn't know when he'll be cleared, Clarence Hill of the Star Telegram reports.

Tapper said the situation is frustrating after his back flared up again just as he was close to being cleared. Look for more updates to come as the week goes on, but it doesn't seem likely that he'll be ready for Week 4.

01/24/17DLDemarcus LawrenceBackQUESTIONABLELawrence recently underwent surgery to repair his back, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Lawrence has now had an operation on his back in consecutive offseasons. While that's hardly ideal for a 24-year-old that's missed 16 games since entering the league in 2014, Lawrence's latest procedure went well, according to coach Jason Garrett. Nonetheless, there currently isn't a timetable for Lawrence's return, so expect his rehab progress to be updated over the coming months.

01/24/17DLCedric ThorntonShoulderQUESTIONABLEThornton underwent shoulder surgery earlier this week, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Thornton had been battling an ankle injury during the playoffs but it looks he's now dealing with some shoulder problems. While there is some cause for concern, the Cowboys remain confident that Thornton will be just fine moving forward. In his first season with Dallas, the 28-year-old recorded 22 tackles across 13 games.

01/16/17DBMorris ClaiborneRibsQUESTIONABLEClaiborne (ribs) is questionable to return to Sunday's playoff game against the Packers, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The severity of Claiborne's injury wasn't specified. Unless he can return, look for Anthony Brown to receive as much playing time as he can handle.

01/06/17DLRandy GregorySuspensionSUSPENDGregory has been been suspended for at least one year for violating the NFL's Policy for Substances of Abuse, the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gregory missed the first 14 games of this season due to his first two violations of the policy, and a third will wipe away the entire 2017 campaign. Although he flashed the talent that made him a second-round pick in 2015 during the Cowboys' last two contests, he'll have to wait until 2018, at the very least, before his pass-rushing chops will be felt again.

(Updated 01/05/2017)
12/02/16LBRolando McClainSuspensionSUSPENDMcClain is suspended indefinitely for violating the league's substance abuse policy, NFL.com reports.

McClain satisfied his previous 10-game suspension at the conclusion of Week 11, but is now facing further discipline due to a missed drug test. The Cowboys reportedly don't expect McClain to play another snap in the NFL.

(Updated 12/02/2016)
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.
