Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Will compete for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath is expected to compete in camp this year for the starting strong safety spot, Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram reports. "Every time we've given him a chance to play on defense, he does something really good for our football team," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "Makes tackles. Makes interceptions. He's just demonstrated that he's worthy to be in this conversation about competing for that starting safety spot."

The Cowboys have a lot of snaps to replace in their secondary after losing four defensive backs in free agency, including safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox, and all signs point to Heath taking on a much larger role in his fifth NFL season. Whether he's a Week 1 starter next to Byron Jones could depend on whether the team uses an early pick this weekend on a safety, but at the moment his only real competition on the roster comes from second-year player Kavon Frazier and former Viking Robert Blanton.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Nerves starting to regenerate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The nerves in Smith's knee are starting to regenerate, and he's increasing his muscle control in the injured knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It was announced Friday that Smith was on track to participate in OTAs and training camp before making his NFL debut in 2017, and it's now clearer how far he has progressed in rehab. He reportedly can lift his toes and foot on his own for the first time since suffering the injury. He has a long way to go in recovery, but it looks increasingly likely that he'll eventually make a full recovery.

Cowboys' Charles Tapper: Expects to be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapper (back) is expected to return to practice when the Cowboy's begin OTAs in May, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Tapper didn't play in 2016 after being selected in the fourth round of last year's draft. The back injury he suffered last summer appears to be a thing of the past and shouldn't limit him in offseason activities much longer.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Return for OTAs a possibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones anticipates Smith (knee) being ready for the start of organized team activities on May 23, Jon Machota of The Dallas News reports."He's doing great," Jones added. "He's making great improvements. We're certainly more fired up than ever that we picked him last year."

Smith is making steady progress in his recovery from nerve damage in his left knee and even attended the Cowboys' voluntary workouts this month. While he isn't up to full speed yet -- and may not be until training camp or later -- it seems the Dallas front office is much more concerned over when, not if, their 2016 second-rounder will be fully cleared to resume all football-related activities. Barring any sort of setback, Smith is still expected to make a significant contribution on defense in 2017.

Cowboys' Shaquelle Evans: Facing four-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

Evans, who signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys in January, is yet to appear in a regular season game despite entering the league as a fourth-round draft pick in 2014. He isn't guaranteed a roster spot in Dallas and this suspension will likely only make it more difficult for him to do so.
