Cowboys' David Irving: Four-game suspension made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving will officially be suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Irving's suspension stems from a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, while the Cowboys have known about his potential ban since May. A failed attempt at an appeal keeps the suspension at four games, so he'll be eligible to return to the active roster in early October, though Irving can participate in preseason activities as well. The Cowboys will have a thin pass-rushing corps out of the gate, so first-rounder Taco Charlton could see an inflated snap count immediately as a rookie.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Locked in as Elliott's top backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden seems to have the No. 2 running back job locked down, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Despite losing nearly all of last season to an elbow injury, McFadden worked ahead of Alfred Morris -- who may be released before Week 1 -- during the Cowboys' offseason program. Ezekiel Elliott figures to handle a heavy workload in a three-down role, and while McFadden probably won't get many touches unless his young teammate is injured, the 29-year-old should at least have value as a handcuff. McFadden might even jump right into a similar three-down role in the event of an Elliott injury.

Cowboys' Kavon Frazier: Returning to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (foot) is nearing 100 percent health, Kevin Casas of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "My foot is 100 percent, but I'm not working in the team drills yet, just a lot of individual stuff as a precaution," Frazier said during June's minicamp.

Frazier, who underwent foot surgery in March to prevent a stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal from becoming something more serious expects to be ready to go for training camp. After playing in nine regular-season games as a sixth-round rookie in 2016, the Central Michigan product is expected to compete for a starting safety role in the wake of Dallas' decision to part ways with veterans J.J. Wilcox and Barry Church this offseason.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Set for larger receiving workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown expects Elliott to catch more passes this season, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Elliott easily led the league in carries (322) and rushing yards (1,631) as a rookie, but he only ranked 31st among running backs in targets (40), despite finishing third in yards per target (9.1) among the 50 backs that drew more than 25 looks. While he often stayed on the field for passing downs, the Cowboys simply didn't rely on their backfield much for pass-catching duties, with running backs accounting for only 79 of the team's 483 targets (16.4 percent). That share likely will rise closer to the league average of 18-20 percent, and with Lance Dunbar no longer on the roster, Elliott unquestionably is the Cowboys' best option for passing downs. While still unlikely to match the kind of receiving workloads David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell handle, Elliott should push to finish among the top 10 at his position in both carries and targets.

Cowboys' Orlando Scandrick: Returning to form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scandrick is returning to form this offseason and is prepared to compete for a starting role, Jon Machota of Sports Day reports. "My time is now, and I ain't looking over my shoulder, wondering what's going to happen," Scandrick said. "I'm just going out every day and trying to get better, trying to get back to where I was. I felt like I was an ascending player when I tore my ACL and I'm going to get back to that."

Scandrick dealt with a plethora of injuries last season, sidelining him after two consecutive career years. The Cowboys made a point of adding young talent to their secondary, drafting Chidobe Awuzie in the second round of April's draft and Jourdan Lewis in the third, leaving some to wonder if Scandrick's time would be up in Dallas. However, the veteran has been playing outside corner and nickelback with the first team defense through OTAs and minicamp. Look for more updates on the position battle to come throughout training camp.
