Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Could be out for 3 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden (elbow) could miss three months, ESPN.com reports.

The Cowboys haven't provided any hints about McFadden's timeline since June 14, when head coach Jason Garrett said the veteran running back will miss "a couple months" after having surgery on his fractured elbow, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Early reports suggested that McFadden is expected to return at some point during training camp, which would likely give him a shot to be ready for Week 1. Subsequent reports have been a bit more pessimistic, suggesting McFadden will miss 2-3 months, with his rehab process potentially stretching closer to the regular season. Alfred Morris figures to take most of the second-team reps when training camp begins, but sixth-round rookie Darius Jackson could push for a role.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Has shot to solidify job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris has a shot to solidify his roster spot in the absence of teammate Darren McFadden, who will likely miss most or all of training camp after undergoing surgery to address a fractured elbow, ESPN.com reports.

Morris presumably expected to push McFadden for the starting job after signing with Dallas in late March on a two-year, $3.5 million contract that has approximately $1.8 million in guarantees, including a $1 million signing bonus. While the cap-strapped Cowboys may have had some buyer's remorse once they drafted Ezekiel Elliott, it still seemed that the structure of Morris' contract all but assured the four-year veteran of a roster spot. With Elliott the presumed starter and McFadden now uncertain for Week 1, Morris will likely work with the second-team offense at the beginning of training camp, though he may have to hold off sixth-round rookie Darius Jackson, who put up elite marks in the 40-yard dash (sub-4.4), vertical jump (41 inches) and broad jump (133 inches) while checking in at 6-1, 220 pounds at his pro day. The Cowboys don't have a clear favorite for the backup work on passing downs, as Morris has just 47 career receptions and recently admitted that he's having a tough time learning the pass protections. Lance Dunbar (knee) would be an obvious choice if he were healthy, but he's still recovering from a torn ACL and MCL suffered in October.

Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Won't be limited for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (foot) will be a full go July 28 when training camp begins, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Though fully recovered from January surgery, Bryant has only been a partial participant at minicamp, with the Cowboys unsurprisingly opting for an abundance of caution. Bryant made an interesting admission Thursday, saying he doesn't think he worked hard enough last year, when he missed most of the team's offseason program due to a contract holdout. He now plans to significantly increase his activity level during the six weeks between minicamp and training camp, with his docket including some individual work with Tony Romo, who has already been cleared for all activities.

Cowboys' Andy Jones: Running with the first team
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones saw some work with the first-team offense during the team portion of minicamp, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Jones, an undrafted wideout from FCS-level Jacksonville University, received the highest signing bonus of all of Dallas' UDFA signings, and was reportedly one of only a few in that group the team had actually given a draftable grade. Looking ahead to 2016, Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley seem to be the only Cowboy wideouts entrenched atop the depth chart, leaving Jones to jockey with the likes of Devin Street, Brice Butler, and Lucky Whitehead, among others, for position behind the established triad. At the very least, for Jones, taking reps with the first team is a step in the right direction toward securing a roster spot.

Cowboys' Rolando McClain: Reports for minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, McClain is in attendance for this week's mandatory minicamp, Jean-Jacques Taylor of ESPN Dallas reports.

After skipping voluntary OTAs, McClain took part in some individual drills Tuesday. He's still expected to begin the season as the Cowboys' starting middle linebacker, a role that should give him solid IDP value -- at least on a per-game basis.
