Position Listing
Donnie Baggs
No Updates
Kenneth Boatright
The agent for Cowboys backup defensive end Kenneth Boatright has declared his client to be OK after sustaining what looked to be a scary injury Thursday during 1-on-1 drills.

Brett Tessler tweeted the update on his condition.

Boatright is believed to have suffered a neck injury that required him to be taken off the field on a stretcher and transported to the hospital via ambulance for a CT scan.

Barry Church
Lions wide receiver Golden Tate responded Thursday to comments from Cowboys safety Barry Church, who vowed revenge for a blindside hit Tate had on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee in 2012 when Tate played for Seattle.

"Man, I don't know this guy," Tate said Thursday, per ESPN. "I just now heard of him yesterday from this incident. He's trying to get on the scene, I guess. We'll see."

Church said Wednesday that Tate's hit "was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen." The hit led to a $21,000 fine for Tate, who hit Lee in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet.

"We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and Sean," Church said. "He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just to give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'

"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules, within the rules."

James Hanna
Cowboys tight end James Hanna suffered a sprained knee during the team's loss to the Chargers on Thursday and could wind up being sidelined for up to two weeks, per the Dallas Morning News

Hanna, who is the team's reserve tight end, may wind up missing the rest of training camp, which could give rookie Geoff Swaim the chance to make an impression on coaches. 

In three seasons with the Cowboys, Hanna has 22 catches for 207 yards. 

Darren McFadden
Cowboys running back Darren McFadden indicated during a radio interview Tuesday that the plan in Dallas is for Joseph Randle and McFadden to split carries out of the backfield, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“You know the competitor in me definitely wants to be the No. 1 guy that goes out there," he told KRLD-FM. "But at the same time, it’s like, man, you know we’re going to split carries. So whoever goes out there or goes out there second -- I just know whenever I do get a chance to get the ball in my hands, I’m going to go out there and go 110 percent.”

McFadden has had his share of injury issues, which have kept him from reaching his full potential in the NFL. He already missed some time this preseason due to a hamstring injury, but it appears McFadden is getting back to 100 percent.

“I feel great. Trainers are kind of just easing me back into things, but as far as I how I feel, I feel like I’m ready to get out there and go 100 percent," he said. "You know, they are going to be cautious. Dealing with a hamstring, they can be tricky. But we definitely don’t want to make any rush and delay it further.”

McFadden was also very complimentary of Randle during his interview.

“He’s a very slashy guy," McFadden said. "The one thing that I’ve learned about him since we’ve been out here is he’s a hard worker, and I love to see that in a running back. He’s a guy who can (hit a) home run at any time. He’s not afraid to stick his nose in there and pick up a blitz.”

Jack Crawford
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is probable heading into Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Romo was listed with a back injury, but was able to practice in full on both Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Josh Brent, Tyrone Crawford, Doug Free, Nick Hayden, Rolando McClain and Terrance Williams were also listed as probable, and should play.

The team did not list any players as questionable, though Jeff Heath was listed as doubtful.

Jack Crawford, Tyler Patmon and Dekoda Watson were all ruled out prior to Thursday. 

Gavin Escobar
Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar has at least been consistent with his pass-catching production in his first two NFL seasons. He totaled nine receptions in both of them.

Considering his limited opportunities, backup status to still-effective Jason Witten and battle to be offensively relevant among many weapons, he couldn't have expected much more. So he is hoping to become a better blocker, a skill the Cowboys feel he needs to improve.

Escobar did see more action in 2014 with 263 snaps, compared to 207 the previous year. He began his NFL career at 245 pounds, but is now up to 255 and hopes to land at 260 before the regular season begins.

"Every year I feel like I make strides, just understanding the game, being more comfortable playing in the NFL," he told the Dallas Morning News. "Every year I feel like I've been taking steps in the right direction."

Lucky Whitehead
Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory returned to the practice field on Saturday, after leaving Friday's OTA practice early. 

Gregory, the team's second-round draft pick, battled dehydration on the first day of practice, per ESPN.

Third-round tackle Chaz Green and undrafted wide receiver Lucky Whitehead also returned to the field after they couldn't complete Friday's practice.  

Travis Frederick
Cowboys center Travis Frederick is hoping to make things easier for quarterback Tony Romo this season, reports ESPN.

Part of Romo's responsibility is setting the protections with calling out the middle linebacker. The offensive line follows the assignment. If Frederick can take that responsibility away from Romo, then Romo can worry more about the coverage. 

"I'm going to try and do as much as I can to take as much as I can off Tony that he was doing before for the offensive line," Frederick said. 'Not necessarily because I was a rookie or this or that, but because, if I can see it better, that's going to take one thing off his plate and that's going to help the team as a whole."

Tyron Smith
Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith restructured his contract Monday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The move created an additional $8.16 million in salary cap space for the Cowboys. The team converted $10.2 million of his $11.039 million base salary in 2015 into a signing bonus.

The 24-year-old left tackle is entering his fifth season with the Cowboys after being selected in the first round of the 2011 draft. He is a two-time Pro Bowler and was named First-team All-Pro in 2014. 

Tyler Clutts
The Cowboys have re-signed fullback Tyler Clutts, the team announced

Clutts joined the team late in 2013 and was the Cowboys' only fullback during the 2014 season. After his contract expired, the Cowboys brought in Jed Collins, who spent last year with the Lions.

By bringing Clutts back, the Cowboys released Collins. Clutts will likely be Dallas' starting fullback again. 

Clutts caught his first NFL touchdown pass in the playoffs during Dallas' loss to the Packers. 

Greg Hardy
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy suffered a strain in his left side during Thursday's practice, which the team said is not considered serious, per the Dallas Morning News. 

Hardy told fans "I'm invicible," as he signed autographs after practice. The Cowboys training staff was checking out Hardy after practice as a precautionary measure. 

"To be honest with you, with Greg right from the start, he was actually going too hard," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He was going too hard in the weight room and too hard on the field early on in the offseason."

Suspension - 4-game suspension. Eligible to return Week 5 vs. New England
Robert Steeples
The Vikings released safety Brandan Bishop, offensive tackles Kevin Murphy and Pierce Burton, defensive ends Jake Snyder and Tyler Scott, defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, receivers Kamar Jorden, Erik Lora and Andy Cruse, and cornerbacks Derek Cox and Robert Steeples.

Minnesota also waived/injured safety Mistral Raymond, who suffered a concussion in the preseason opener.

Terrell McClain
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said that defensive tackle Terrell McClain would miss at least a week of camp with multiple injuries, per the Dallas Morning News

McClain is suffering from a bone bruise and a strained hamstring. The five-year vet played in 13 games for Dallas last season, earning 19 tackles and one sack. 

Terrance Williams
Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams had to leave Thursday's practice after sustaining an injury to his left elbow, reports The Dallas Morning News.

Williams was treated by team trainers and went to the locker room holding his left arm after suffering the injury. Williams was diagnosed with a bruised elbow. An X-ray on the elbow came back negative.

Shane McDermott
No Updates
Jonathan Brown
The Bears signed defensive lineman David Carter to a one-year contract Tuesday, reports the team's Radio Network.

In addition to Carter, the team also signed wide receiver Alexander Cruz to a three-year deal. Moreover, the team waived linebacker Jonathan Brown.

Andrew Gachkar
Linebacker Andrew Gachkar has signed a contract with the Cowboys, according to FOX Sports 1. 

Gachkar has spent the previous four seasons with the Chargers. He was selected by San Diego in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL draft. With the Chargers, Gachkar totaled 120 tackles and one forced fumble. 

His agent David Canter appeared to confirm the news by tweeting, "How bout Dem Cowboys!!!" while tagging Gachkar in the post. 

Cameron Lawrence
The Cowboys parted ways with running back Ryan Williams on Tuesday, reports ESPNDallas.com. Williams has not played in a game since 2012.

Moreover, the team released linebacker Cameron Lawrence and offensive lineman Ryan Miller.

Kyle Wilber
Cowboys linebacker Kyle Wilber started four of the final five games on the strong side last year, making him the favorite to start at the position in 2014, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wilber, 25, appeared in every game and finished with 42 tackles, two sacks and 14 quarterback pressures.

He'll be challenged by DeVonte Holloman.

Lance Dunbar
Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar underwent an MRI on his sprained ankle Thursday, but the team still does not feel the injury is that serious, per the Dallas Morning News

Dunbar injured the ankle Wednesday in practice, but Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the MRI was simply a precautionary measure. Dunbar caught 18 passes for 217 yards while running 29 times for 99 yards last season.

Ankle - Probable for start of season
Nick Hayden
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett made it a point of emphasis to mention to reporters at the NFL Meetings that re-signing defensive lineman Nick Hayden was important, reports the Dallas Morning News.

“Well, we’re always trying to get better and we have to get better,’’ Garrett said. “We have to bring some impact players into our defense. But Nick has been such a good player for us as a leader of that defensive line and he’s a really productive player. There’s a lot of the dirty work but he’s one of those guys who makes a lot of hits on the ball, is around the football a lot and simply makes a lot of plays.

"That was an important signing for us.’’

Hayden has started all 16 games with the Cowboys for two consecutive seasons. Over his seven-year career, he has 135 total tackles, two sacks, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Ben Malena
The Cowboys signed running backs Michael Hill and Ben Malena after workouts on Saturday, per the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

The Cowboys are Hill's fifth NFL team since entering the league in 2013. Malena spent time with the Cowboys during training camp last year. 

Dallas also waived/injured rookie safety Ray Vinopal

Jeremy Mincey
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey will arrive in California on Sunday to meet with team officials to discuss the parameters of a two-year deal, a source told The Dallas Morning News.

Mincey is currently holding out of training camp as he awaits a new deal. Mincey produced six sacks and 36 tackles in 16 games last season.

Before Sunday's practice, coach Jason Garrett said he expects Mincey to participate in the practice, reports the Star-Telegram.

"It's good to have him here," Garrett said. "It was a good conversation [he had with Mincey]. We'll see how he's doing... But excited to have him here in training camp."

Antwan Goodley
No Updates
Dan Bailey
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey had his only field goal attempt blocked in Dallas' 26-21 loss to the Packers Sunday in the divsional round of the playoffs.

Bailey drilled all three of his extra point attempts. Bailey finishes the year 26 of 32 on field goal attempts and a perfect 62 of 62 on extra points.

Tyler Patmon
Cowboys cornerback Tyler Patmon made news over the weekend when he got into a skirmish with star wide receiver Dez Bryant running the down the field. For the second-year player, it showed his tenacity and desire to play the game, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"Well, Patmon is a great story for our team," coach Jason Garrett said. "He came to the rookie mimicamp as an undrafted, unsigned tryout guy. For him to do what he did over the course of those three days his first year to show us that, 'hey, he's one of the better guys. I don't care who we drafted or who we signed we need to make sure that he's one of the guys that has a chance to make our football team.'

"So what he is all about was demonstrated right from the start. He's a guy that's all about what he does. It doesn't really matter where he comes from and what has happened to him and other people in the past. He wants to show you what he's all about by what he does each and every day. And I think he’s done that since he's been here. He's a competitor. He's a fighter. He's an instinctive player. He loves to play the game. I think he’s gotten better and better."

Patmon is fighting for a roster spot and the fourth cornerback position on the team. 

Damien Wilson
The Cowboys have announced the signing of rookie linebacker Damien Wilson. Bringing the fourth-round pick in the fold leaves only first-rounder Byron Jones unsigned.

Wilson was a tackling machine last year at the University of Minnesota, racking up 119, including 10.5 for losses and four sacks. He has worked in the first-team nickel package in practice both in the middle and on the weakside.

Carlif Taylor
No Updates
Gus Johnson
Cowboys running back Gus Johnson had to leave Thursday's preseason game early after sustaining an AC joint separation in his shoulder, reports the team's official website.

Johnson is competing for a backup role on the team after signing as an undrafted free agent.

R.J. Dill
The Cowboys have signed offensive linemen R.J. Dill and Ryan Miller to reserve/future contracts, the team announced Thursday.

Miller didn't play in a regular-season game in 2014 but has appeared in eight games with the Browns. Dill was unable to make the Rams' final roster during the 2014 preseason.

Mackenzy Bernadeau
Cowboys guard Mackenzy Bernadeau's restructured contract includes a $1.15 million pay cut for 2014, reports USA Today. He started 11 games last season and figures to start at right guard this fall.
Dez Bryant
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since suffering a hamstring strain Aug. 6.

However, he will be a limited participant, as coach Jason Garrett said Bryant will "get involved in individuals, and see how he does and how he responds to that."

Bryant missed 10 practices and the first two preseason games due to the hamstring injury. Although, Bryant hasn't been completely idle since getting hurt. He worked on the side during practice with resistance training. He also took part in walk-throughs and pre-practice 11-on-11 work.

"Stayed very engaged, really good in meetings, good at the walk-through, engaged with his coaches, engaged with his teammates," Garrett said, per ESPN. "He's a professional."

Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million ($45 million guaranteed) contract in mid-July. He is coming off three straight 1,000-yard seasons and totaled a career-best 16 receiving touchdowns in 2014.

Hamstring - Probable for start of season
Chaz Green
Cowboys offensive tackle Chaz Green underwent hip surgery Wednesday, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Green is questionable for the start of training camp. Green was a third-round pick in the 2015 draft.

Lavar Edwards
The Cowboys activated defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence from injured reserve Saturday, waiving defensive end Lavar Edwards in a corresponding move.

Lawrence suffered a fractured foot in late July and started the season on short-term injured reserve, placing Week 9 as his earliest possible return date. The rookie defensive end returned to practice in mid-October and should be available for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

John Wetzel
The Cowboys signed defensive back Jemea Thomas and offensive tackle John Wetzel to the practice squad Tuesday.
Ronald Leary
The Cowboys retained two offensive linemen when they signed exclusive rights free agents Ronald Leary and Darrion Weems on Tuesday, reports The Dallas Morning News.

Chris Whaley
Cowboys defensive tackle Chris Whaley tore his Achilles tendon during practice on Monday, per the Dallas Morning News.

Whaley has a history of injuries. As an undrafted rookie last year, Whaley was limited as he continued to recover from three torn ligaments in a knee.

Jameill Showers

Ray Agnew
Fullback Ray Agnew has signed with the Cowboys, per the Baltimore Sun. The 24-year-old worked out for the Cowboys on Tuesday.

Joseph Randle
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, who is competing for the featured spot in the backfield, suffered a setback early in practice Thursday when he aggravated an oblique he strained last week, per the Dallas Morning News.

When the Cowboys kick off training camp next month, the team is expecting veterans Doug Free, Rolando McClain and Morris Claiborne to be healthy enough to participate, reports The Dallas Morning News.

All three have been limited during the offseason because of various aliments. Free dealt with a foot injury last season and Claiborne was bothered by a torn patellar tendon. Meanwhile, McClain is recovering from knee surgery in the offseason.

Orlando Scandrick
Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has reportedly suffered a torn right ACL and will miss the 2015 season, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Scandrick, who signed a one-year contract extension with the Cowboys, was carted off the field when his knee buckled during an attempted tackle in Tuesday's practice. 

Knee - Out for season
La'el Collins
The Cowboys continue to shuffle offensive lineman La'el Collins along the offensive line during this week's OTA session, reports The Dallas Morning News.

Collins spent Wednesday's practice working at left guard, which Collins said he was comfortable with.

"You're right there with down linemen, so everything is a lot quicker, which is good for me," Collins said. "I feel like that is part of one of my strengths, being able to get on guys quick is an advantage."

Collins has worked at guard and tackle during his initial practices with the Cowboys and coach Jason Garrett said he was pleased with his progress.

"He's going to see a lot of different looks from the defense, so he, like a lot of young guys, they're trying their best to hang in there," Garrett said. "But they're a long way off from where they need to be. He's working the right way, though."

Demarcus Lawrence
The Cowboys have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 15 game against the Eagles: defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf), linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring), quarterback Dustin Vaughan, tackles Tony Hills and Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive back Jakar Hamilton.

Heath was doubtful to play Sunday while Watson had previously been ruled out. The team will have all seven players listed as probable active, including quarterback Tony Romo (back), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee), cornerback Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle), safety Jeff Heath (thumb) and defensive ends Demarcus Lawrence (chest), Jeremy Mincey (not injury related) and George Selvie (thumb).

Tom Hornsey
The Cowboys reached agreement on a contract with punter Tom Hornsey , according to MMQB's Robert Klemko.

The Australian-born Hornsey won the Ray Guy Award for top college punter in 2013. He was with the Cowboys for two weeks in training camp last season. 

Hornsey provides insurance for the Cowboys. 2014 punter Chris Jones is a restricted free agent. 

Cole Beasley
Cowboys wideout Cole Beasley would like to catch more passes this season. And that means running a higher number of routes to attract the attention of quarterback Tony Romo.

Beasley has caught 91 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons combined. He managed 37 receptions for 420 yards and four scores a year ago. But he signed a four-year, $13.6 million deal with $7.3 million guaranteed in early March, so the team is likely expecting more in 2015.

That's one reason why he is seeking to expand his horizons and develop a stronger on-field relationship with Romo.

"I've always been comfortable with Tony," he told the Dallas Morning News. "Now it's just building more of a route tree pretty much. We've always had the routes that we've been good at and just kind of left it at that the past three years. Hopefully we can build on some more things and I can add to the inventory and get some more routes so we can build a connection with those."

Beasley added his belief that his statistical improvement would benefit the Cowboys.

"If all of us take that approach and improve individually it will make us better collectively," he said. "You're always going to look back at your stats because you have your own personal goals. You want to do better each year. But a lot of my success depends on other people, so it really doesn't matter if it doesn't add up to wins."

Reshod Fortenberry
Clyde Gates
The Jets have cut their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players.

Those on offense are quarterback Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms, wide receivers Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, tight end Chris Pantale, linemen Brent Qvale and Caleb Schlauderaff.

The defenders imclude defensive backs Rontez Miles, Jeremy Reeves, Johnny Patrick, Dimitri Patterson and Brandon Dixon, linemen Zach Thompson, Kerry Hyder and Tevita Finau and linebackers Garrett McIntyre and A.J. Edds.

Linebacker Antwan Barnes has been placed on the PUP list.

Jason Witten
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will replace Broncos tight end Julius Thomas in the 2015 Pro Bowl. Thomas will not participate due to an undisclosed injury. 

It will be Witten's 10th Pro Bowl appearance. He totaled 64 catches for 703 yards and five touchdowns in 2014.

Geoff Swaim
Cowboys tight end James Hanna suffered a sprained knee during the team's loss to the Chargers on Thursday and could wind up being sidelined for up to two weeks, per the Dallas Morning News

Hanna, who is the team's reserve tight end, may wind up missing the rest of training camp, which could give rookie Geoff Swaim the chance to make an impression on coaches. 

In three seasons with the Cowboys, Hanna has 22 catches for 207 yards. 

Morris Claiborne
Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne -- a top-10 pick a few seasons ago -- is not considering himself a lock to make the roster, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Claiborne is trying to show off his work ethic during minicamp in order to ensure he will have a roster spot, which will give him the chance to prove himself come Sundays.

"I'm trying to make the team," Claiborne said. "That's how I look at this whole thing right now, I'm trying to make this team."

Claiborne has been dealing with lingering knee injuries since suffering a season-ending injury during the fourth game of last season and might not be ready for the start of this year.

Michael Hill
The Redskins cut running back Michael Hill on Thursday, reports CSNWashington.com. Hill has a total of nine rushing attempts for 23 yards in three seasons.
Davon Coleman
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal

Ken Bishop
The Cowboys promoted linebacker Keith Smith from the practice squad Saturday and waived defensive tackle Ken Bishop. Smith has been active for two games and played two defensive snaps.
Ray Vinopal
The Cowboys signed running backs Michael Hill and Ben Malena after workouts on Saturday, per the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

The Cowboys are Hill's fifth NFL team since entering the league in 2013. Malena spent time with the Cowboys during training camp last year. 

Dallas also waived/injured rookie safety Ray Vinopal

Darrion Weems
Cowboys rookie offensive lineman La'el Collins started offseason team activities on Wednesday taking reps at right tackle, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Collins, who was signed as an undrafted free agent, could also see time at left guard. But the rookie is taking his first reps with the team at right tackle with Darrion Weems while Doug Free recovers from ankle surgery.

"We think he has the physical ability to play a couple of different spots," coach Jason Garrett said. "He was a tackle for most of his career in college but did play guard. We see him as a guy who can maybe do both of those things as he goes.

"The big thing for him is to try to get him acclimated as quickly as we can. So right now he's going to play right tackle for us. He and Darrion Weems are competing at that spot in Doug Free's absence and we'll just see how that unfolds." 

Ryan Russell
The Cowboys announced the signing of two draft picks. 

The team signed fifth-round defensive end Ryan Russell, out of Purdue, and seventh-round linebacker Mark Nzeocha, out of Wyoming.

The team also waived linebacker Troy Davis and tackle Donald Hawkins while releasing linebacker Dekoda Watson

Corey White
Cornerback Corey White, after being waived by the Saints, has been picked up off of waivers by the Cowboys, according to NOLA.com.

White is entering his fourth season in the NFL, racking up 125 total tackles, 15 passes defensed and four interceptions. The 24-year-old has played in 41 games over the last three seasons, including 19 starts at cornerback. 

Tyrone Crawford
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle) and defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (illness) are active for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Lions after both players were listed as questionable to play.

Hitchens has been dealing with a right high ankle sprain, while Crawford suffered an allergic reaction, putting his status in doubt Sunday.

The team had nine players listed as probable for the first-round playoff matchup, and all are active, including quarterback Tony Romo (back), running back DeMarco Murray (hand), guard Zack Martin (ankle), defensive tackles Josh Brent (calf) and Nick Hayden (shoulder), linebackers Bruce Carter (knee) and Rolando McClain (knee, illness) and safeties Jeff Heath (thumb) and C.J. Spillman (groin).

Dallas is a 6-point favorite at home against Detroit.

Cody Clay
The Cowboys signed defensive tackle Carlif Taylor on Friday, per NJ.com.

Taylor was released by the Giants after the team's first preseason game. To make room for Taylor, Dallas released offensive lineman Cody Clay.

Brandon Weeden
Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden left Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers with an apparent head injury, per the Associated Press

Hitchens, McClain and Mincey were listed as questionable, while the remaining players were all considered probable.

Sean Lee
Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has no doubts he'll be 100 percent ready when training camp opens next month, reports the team's official website.

Lee missed the 2014 season after he tore his ACL. He has been able to participate in individual drills, but the team has kept him out of team drills during offseason workouts.

Ka'Lial Glaud
The Dolphins worked out linebacker Ka'Lial Glaud on Thursday, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. 

Glaud played college football at Rutgers and signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He was a participant at the NFL's veterans combine. 

Chris Jones
The Cowboys agreed to a contract extension with punter Chris Jones on Tuesday, the team announced.

The deal will keep Jones under contract with the Cowboys through the 2017 season. He recently signed his tender offer of $1.54 million.

Devin Street
Cowboys wide receiver Devin Street played in all 16 games last season, but remarkably caught just two passes for 18 yards.

His role could increase this year because of an increase in reps he's recieved during the offseason in Dez Bryant's absence, The Dallas Morning News reports.

“I think he is excited about this opportunity he’s getting with Dez not here,” receivers coach Derek Dooley said. “He is a very mature player. He is smart. He understands, but he also wants to be in there like all receivers do. One of the biggest things he needed to improve upon was his play strength, and he’s gotten a lot better in that area. I think he has improved as much as anybody and he still has got a lot of room for improvement ahead of him. He’s doing great five practices in and he needs to stay on that path.”

Tony Romo
Despite dealing with an eye issue, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to practice Saturday, reports the Star-Telegram. Romo was held out of Friday's practice to receive treatment for a sty in his eye.

"I don't want to get into specifics of what we did, but we don't think it's a major thing, and we do anticipate him practicing [Saturday]," coach Jason Garrett said.

Phil Bates
The Browns announced Monday that they have waived kicker Garrett Hartley, along with wide receiver Phil Bates, defensive lineman Christian Tupou and defensive back Varmah Sonie, per the Akron Beacon Journal

Hartley was signed by the Browns prior to Week 15 last season and was 3-for-3 in his only field goal attempts. Prior to that, he played for six seasons with the Saints. 

Brandon Carr
Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr underwent surgery on his broken hand Monday, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Carr needed the surgery to fix a broken bone in his hand, but he is expected to be ready for the regular season.

"I take a lot of pride in being able to fight through whatever is going on to suit up on Sunday," he said. "At the same time, I've been blessed. It's not all me. It's really not me at all. I've just been blessed to play through certain injuries and stay away from the major ones."

Zack Martin
Cowboys guard Zack Martin left Tuesday's joint practice with St. Louis with an apparent injury.

Martin was down for several minutes and a cart came onto the field. Martin was able to walk off under his own power, however, per the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

No Updates
Rolando McClain
The Cowboys announced that linebacker Rolando McClain has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season due to violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. 

McClain hasn't been able to participate much in offseason workouts due to going under offseason knee surgery. McClain will be eligible to practice in training camp and is expected to be healthy by then. 

"I apologize to my family, the Cowboys organization, my teammates and Cowboys fans for my mistake. I will not break the rules of my profession in the future, and I regret my error," McClain said in a statement, via CSN Bay Area. "I look forward to returning to the field on week 5, when I hope to help my team beat the Patriots.

In 2014, McClain, who had previously retired twice before being traded from the Ravens to the Cowboys, totaled 81 tackles and a sack in 13 games played.

Suspension - 4-game suspension. Eligible to return Week 5 vs. New England
Anthony Hitchens
Cowboys outside linebacker Anthony Hitchens is sidelined from practice Friday and wearing a walking boot on his right foot, the Dallas Morning News is reporting.

Hitchens, who had been dealing this offseason with a variety of physical issues, had an ankle problem at the end of last year. He played in all 16 games, however, and contributed to 75 tackles.

Jasper Brinkley
The Cowboys have reached an agreement with linebacker Jasper Brinkley, according to ESPN. Before the deal becomes official he must pass a physical.

Brinkley, 30, is heading into his seventh season in the NFL. For his career he has 248 total tackles, one sack, four passes defensed and five forced fumbles. Brinkley started 11 out of 16 games last year for the Vikings.

Ryan Miller
The Cowboys parted ways with running back Ryan Williams on Tuesday, reports ESPNDallas.com. Williams has not played in a game since 2012.

Moreover, the team released linebacker Cameron Lawrence and offensive lineman Ryan Miller.

Danny McCray
All five players listed as probable on the Bears' final injury report for Week 10 are active for Sunday night's game against the Packers, including linebackers Jonathan Bostic (back) and Lance Briggs (ribs), cornerback Kyle Fuller (hip, hand), safety Danny McCray (knee) and offensive tackle Jordan Mills (foot).
David Porter
The Cowboys have released George Farmer and signed fellow undrafted rookie free agent wide receiver David Porter, the Dallas Morning News has reported.

Arm - Probable for start of season
A.J. Jenkins
The Cowboys signed former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins earlier this week, and it didn't take long for him to acknowledge he needs to make an impression soon, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I got to hurry up and make some plays and do something,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins was drafted with the 30th pick of the 2012 draft by the 49ers, but only plaed in three games as a rookie. In 2013, the 49ers traded him to the Chiefs where he played in every game but caught only eight passes. Last season he caught nine passes in nine games for the Chiefs before they released him in February.

Now, Jenkins is just happy that a tryout with the Cowboys resulted in the team giving him another shot.

“It was a lift off of my shoulders,” Jenkins said. “It really was because you don’t really know how it goes. There are a lot of guys who stay waiting for a long time and they don’t get a phone call. I’m blessed and humbled for the opportunity, and it being the Cowboys, an organization that’s known for a lot of things. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”

Dustin Vaughan
Although the Cowboys are reportedly pleased with Brandon Weeden, coach Jason Garrett told reporters he's still leaving the door open to adding a veteran this offseason, per ESPN.

Weeden, 31, is entering the final year of his contract. Last season, he passed for 303 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while filling in for Romo when he was sidelined with two transverse process fractures. Dustin Vaughan, an undrafted free agent in 2014, was also active for one game last season.

"You're always trying to upgrade your football team," Garrett said. "Obviously, we feel really good about Tony. He had an outstanding year for us last year. Brandon did a really nice job in his opportunities. If you look at what he did -- he played in (four) games, (three) he came in relief for us and the one game he started we didn't play our best game on offense. But it was against a really good defensive team in Arizona. We still feel like he's a young player who needs to play more. He's really growing before our eyes.

"We like what Dustin Vaughn did in the preseason. He is a smart kid. He is really conscientious. He wants to be a good football player and works very hard at it. He's one of those guys, too, a young player and you can see him get better with every rep that he gets. He is going about it the right way. We think he's got a future."
