George Selvie
News
Cowboys defensive end George Selvie suffered a shoulder injury in the team's latest preseason game, but the issue isn't expected to keep him out long, DallasCowboys.com reports.

"We don’t think it’s too, too serious," head coach Jason Garrett said. "We probably will keep him out of contact here for the next few days, but we don’t think it’s going to be too long for him."

The Cowboys have been decimated by front-seven injuries this offseason and preseason.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 1 vs. San Francisco
Ahmad Dixon
News
Cowboys safety Ahmad Dixon said he didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens because he was late to the walkthrough, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Dixon left the team's first preseason game with a concussion, but he appears to be past the injury. He's competing to make the team after being selected in the seventh round in this year's draft.

Barry Church
News
Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”

James Hanna
News
Several Cowboys contributed offensively Week 14 at Chicago. Among them, tight end Gavin Escobar caught both his targets for 32 yards and wideout Miles Austin caught two of four targets for 19 yards. Tight end James Hanna had a 6-yard reception.

They'll play the Packers in Week 15.

Jemea Thomas
News
The Cowboys claimed rookie defensive back Jemea Thomas off waivers from the Patriots. Thomas was a sixth-round pick out of Georgia Tech.
Gavin Escobar
News
The Cowboys have 13 players out of uniform for Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins, including some who have been battling injuries through the preseason.

Defensive backs Morris Claiborne (shoulder), Jeff Heath, Johnny Thomas, Matt Johnson and B.W. Webb; linebackers DeVonte Holloman (neck) and Orie Lemon; defensive linemen Henry Melton (groin), Terrell McClain (ankle), and Demarcus Lawrence; tight end Gavin Escobar (shoulder) and offensive lineman Darrion Weems are all inactive Saturday.

Bruce Carter
News
Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”

Travis Frederick
News
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
News
The Cowboys and Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith agreed in principle on an eight-year, $98 million contract extension, reports NFL Network. Smith, 23, was entering the final year of his deal.

He's now signed through 2023.

Johnny Thomas
News
The Cowboys got down to the 75-man roster limit Tuesday. They waived receiver Chris Boyd, punter Tom Hornsey, long snapper Casey Kreiter, defensive end Adewale Ojomo and guard Wayne Tribue, and released quarterback Caleb Hanie.

Dallas waived these players with injury designations: tight end Jordan Najvar, safety Matt Johnson, cornerbacks Justin Green and Johnny Thomas, and linebacker DeVonte Holloman. Defensive end Ben Gardner was placed on IR, and defensive tackle Amobi Okoye was put on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Injury
Tyler Clutts
News
Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, WR Miles Austin and FB Tyler Clutts did little Week 16.

Beasley caught two passes for 29 yards. He was targeted just two times. Austin caught one pass for 8 yards. Clutts picked up 4 yards on one target.  

Matt Johnson
News
The prolonged absence of safety Matt Johnson due to hamstring issues has the Cowboys baffled, according to the Dallas News. His visit to a back specialist last week uncovered nothing new. The team had been considering that back problems might be causing his hamstring injury.

"Just trying to turn over all the rocks," Jason Garrett said.

The third-year player has yet to record any NFL statistics.

The Cowboys also waived/injured linebacker Orie Lemon and defensive tackle Zach Minter while placing safety Jakar Hamilton and cornerback Orlando Scandrick on the reserve/suspended list.

Injury
Suspension - 4-game suspension. Eligible to return Week 5 vs. Houston
Demarcus Lawrence
News
Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence remains on crutches and is still several weeks from returning to practice, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"It feels great. Surgery went well," Lawrence said. "I’m glad it happened now than later. It set me back a little physically. I know I’m going to have to be into my playbook and the weight room now. Knowing that I’m coming back soon, maybe in the next month or two, keeps my head high."

Lawrence had surgery to repair a broken foot July 31 and will remain on crutches for the first month of his recovery. He's set for a doctor's visit Sept. 4.

Injury
Foot - Expected to be out until at least Week 5 vs. Houston

Receiver Cole Beasley added a 7-yard reception on two targets.

Terrell McClain
News
Cowboys nose tackle Terrell McClain is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins due to a high ankle sprain, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Despite his status for the preseason game, McClain expects to participate in practice next week, which would likely put him on track to be available for the start of the regular seaso.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 vs. San Francisco
Terrance Williams
News
Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams acknowledged that he took some plays off mentally as a rookie last year.

"I feel like sometimes when I go three deep balls straight, then I have a tendency to take a play off [mentally]," Williams told ESPN.com. "And that play that I take off, the ball is coming my way. When I get tired now, I’m just trying to hold myself accountable, just thinking about what the 10 guys would say standing right next to me."

Receivers coach Derek Dooley said Williams' challenge is to be consistent now that he's an unquestioned starter.

"When you look back at his first year, when he was playing about 35 snaps a game, he was really making some great plays," Dooley said. "Then there were a bunch of games when he was kind of thrust in and had to play the whole game when Miles [Austin] was hurt and it was hard on him, being able to sustain that mentally and physically and emotionally. So he was a little bit more inconsistent.

"The trick now is to develop that level of consistency where he can perform at his best for 70 plays. That’s not easy."

Justin Durant
News
With Sean Lee expected to miss the season with a torn ACL, the Dallas Morning News projects Justin Durant as the Cowboys' starting middle linebacker. Durant played in 10 games last season, making 24 takcles.

He helped fill in last year when Lee missed five games with injuries.

Jermey Parnell
News
The Cowboys added DL/OL Jermey Parnell to their 53-man roster on Thursday.
Jason Witten
News
It appears the Cowboys will not only be without quarterback Tony Romo for Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers, but running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Jason Witten will also be held out, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Though, the absence of Murray and Witten are not expected to be injury related.

If all three players are sidelined, it will be the second straight season the team opted to sit Romo, Witten and Murray in the preseason opener.

Henry Melton
News
Cowboys defensive lineman Henry Melton expressed confidence Wednesday that his strained groin won't keep him from playing in the team's regular season opener, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Melton added that he would like to see action in the team's final preseason game, but he would likely need to be close to 100 percent for the team to let that happen. The front seven's biggest addition this offseason, Melton is racing against the clock to make it back by Week 1 kickoff.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 1 vs. San Francisco
Morris Claiborne
News
Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne probably won't play in Thursday's preseason finale, marking the second straight preseason in which he has not played a down, reports ESPN.com. Claiborne missed this year's preseason opener with knee tendinitis and the past two games due to a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

Claiborne returned to practice this week, but likely will be held out against the Broncos. "Just not worth the risk to go backwards," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.
Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 1 vs. San Francisco
Cameron Lawrence
News
Cornerback Sterling Moore, who has earned some playing time with New England and Dallas, has been cut by the Cowboys. Moore played in five games in both 2011 and 2012. Another significant cut by the team is wide receiver Anthony Armstrong, who has 54 career catches.

Others waived by Dallas are the following: quarterback Alex Tanney, tackles Demetress Bell and Edawn Coughman, defensive backs Micah Pellerin, Xavier Brewer and Jakar Hamilton, linebackers Brandon McGee, Cameron Lawrence, Caleb McSurdy and Taylor Reed, running back Kendial Lawrence, defensive tackle Jerome Long, defensive ends Thaddeus Gibson and Jabari Fletcher, guard Ray Dominguez, wide receivers Tim Benford and Danny Coale, defensive lineman Jason Vega and center Kevin Kowalski

He'll be challenged by DeVonte Holloman.

Davon Coleman
No Updates
Lance Dunbar
News
The Cowboys plan to use running back Lance Dunbar in a variety of ways, reports FOX Sports.

"Well, he's a guy that's going to be a complete weapon. We can line him up anywhere on the team -- tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he's just not a specialty guy. He could play tailback if you need him to go out there and give you 15 or 20 carries. He's that type of kid," Dallas running backs coach Gary Brown said. "He brings a whole different dimension, a whole different vibe in our room as far as what he does and we're looking forward to using him as a weapon as well."

Brown compared Dunbar, who is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray, to Danny Woodhead and Darren Sproles.

"Everybody would like to have a guy like Dunbar. You look at the Sproles type guy. You look at guys around the league like Woodhead from San Diego. They all have them," Brown said. "Not everybody has them but we all want them. Once you find one, you've got to find things for him to do and you've got to make sure that he's involved in the gameplan."

Ken Bishop

Spencer has been a mainstay on the Dallas defense since arriving in 2007. He contributed to a career-high 95 tackles in 2012.

Injury
Knee - PUP. Questionable for start of regular season
Tyrone Crawford
News
The Cowboys believe Tyrone Crawford is "ready to start" at left defensive end, "but want to see him earn the spot in training camp," reports the Dallas Morning News. Crawford, 24, missed last season with a torn Achilles' tendon but reportedly has recovered.

Brandon Weeden
News
With Tony Romo sidelined, Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden got the start for Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers. 

Weeden played the first half of the game and hooked up with James Hanna for a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards ad a touchdown. He also had one run for a gain of 10 yards. 

Weeden will likely be relegated to backup duties, as Romo is expected to return for the second preseason game, Aug. 16 against Baltimore.
Jeremy Mincey
News
With rookie Demarcus Lawrence expected to miss 8-12 weeks with a fractured foot, the Cowboys are thin at defensive end. Jeremy Mincey and George Selvie are running with the first team, and Martez Wilson and rookie Ben Gardner could get into the mix, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Dallas hopes Anthony Spencer can return from his microfracture surgery. He's currently on the PUP list.

Jeff Heath

Tony Romo
News
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said quarterback Tony Romo held up "fairly well" throughout Saturday's game, the first time Romo had really been hit since his December back surgery, reports ESPN.com. Still, Garrett gave Romo the day off Monday.

"The idea was to give him the opportunity, in a light practice, to collect himself and take the day off," Garrett told the website.

Garrett said Romo is "doing OK" and will practice Tuesday.
Dan Bailey
News
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey, who just signed a seven-year, $22.5 million deal, said the contract won't put extra pressure on him.

“I don’t think it changes too much,” Bailey told ESPN.com. “You’re only as good as your last kick. That’s the nature of the league. You have to bring your ‘A’ game every day to practice, to the game, even off the field. You’ve got to do the right things. I don’t think it’ll have too much of an impact. I think I take pride on being mentally strong enough to put that on the back burner and focus on the task at hand.”

Bailey hit 28 of 30 field goals this season, including 6 of 7 from 50-plus yards.

Anthony Hitchens
News
Redskins fourth-round pick Anthony Hitchens took all the first-team reps at middle linebacker in Thursday practice, per the Dallas News. He worked ahead of veteran Rolando McClain, who had missed the Wednesday session with cramps.

The development was necessitated by the loss for the season of linebacker DeVonte Holloman, who has sustained what could be a career-ending neck spinal injury. Hitchens was drafted to play on the outside, but has spent significant time in the middle.
