Position Listing
Kenneth Boatright
The Cowboys pared down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing four and giving injury designations to six, according to the team's official website.

The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.

Dallas also placed Orlando Scandrick on IR, Chaz Green on the PUP list and Mark Nzeocha on the NFI list.

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 had a scope performed on his knee Saturday, DallasCowboys.com reports. 

It was just a minor clean-up procedure and Hanna could return to practice by the end of the week, but it still seems unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 3's game against the Falcons. Geoff Swaim would once again by the Cowboys' third tight end Sunday if Hanna is eventually ruled out.

Ankle - Missed Week 5 vs. New England
Darren McFadden
Cowboys running back Darren McFadden had just five carries for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to New England, but caught 9 of 10 targets for 62 yards.

McFadden was bottled up as a runner, but was able to shake free a bit on check downs from QB Brandon Weeden. Meanwhile, starter Joseph Randle had 15 carries for 60 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for just 13 yards. Youngster Christine Michael ran only one time for six yards, although it wouldn't be surprising to see him get more work, at the expense of Randle, over the next few weeks. The season-ending injury to Lance Dunbar (knee) has opened up more playing time for McFadden, but for now, it's not an ideal situation, especially with an offense that is missing major pieces (Tony Romo (shoulder) and Dez Bryant (foot). Make sure McFadden is on your bench next week, as the Cowboys will have their bye.

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 tightend Gavin Escobar came up huge in his team's win over the Giants on Sunday.

Escobar caught both passes thrown his way for a total of eight yards and a touchdown. He scored on a 2-yard pass from Tony Romo late in the third quarter.

The Cowboys face the Eagles in Week 2. 

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
Hardy was a force on the pass rush in his Cowboys debut Sunday, collecting five tackles including two sacks and forcing a fumble.

The Cowboys will be on bye next week, but beginning in Week 7 expect Hardy to be a consistent IDP asset for the remainder of the season.

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 caught three passes for 49 yards and a touchdown on game-high 10 targets in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Saints.

The inefficient performance was encouraging, as Williams drew a bunch of targets in the red zone, including his game-tying, 17-yard touchdown on a 4th-and-7 in the final two minutes. He had a few chances to make contested catches near the goal line, but the throws from Brandon Weeden weren't great, and Williams is obviously no Dez Bryant (foot). Though he's locked in as the clear No. 1 wideout until Bryant returns, Williams has to deal with a conservative offense and poor quarterback play. On the bright side, the few shots Dallas takes do seem to be in his direction. The Cowboys host the Patriots in Week 5.

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 (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

This comes as no surprise as Dunbar had surgery earlier in the week to repair a torn ACL and he also has a partially torn MCL. The Cowboys signed wide receiver Vince Mayle to take Dunbar's spot on the roster.

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.

Matt Cassel
Quarterback Matt Cassel will be active Sunday for the first time since being acquired by the Cowboys, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Kellen Moore has been acting as Brandon Weeden's backup the last two games, but the Cowboys feel that Cassel knows the playbook well enough now to step in if needed.

David Irving
No Updates
Jeremy Mincey
Cowboys defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, the Cowboys' official website reports.

Mincey's return from a one-week absence should help a Dallas defense that struggled badly against the Falcons last week, but a Sunday night game at the Superdome may still prove rather difficult. With just 40 tackles and six sacks in 18 games since the beginning of last season, Mincey does not warrant IDP consideration.

Deji Olatoye
The Chiefs signed rookie defensive back Deji Olatoye to their practice squad. He was waived by the Ravens in late August.
Dan Bailey
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey connected on two field goal attempts from 30 and 38 yards as well as both his extra points in Sunday's 26-20 OT loss to the Saints.

While injuries to Tony Romo (collarbone) and Dez Bryant (foot) have taken the explosiveness out of the Cowboys offense, Bailey's accuracy has allowed him to remain a consistent fantasy asset, as he has yet to miss a kick this season.

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.

Gus Johnson
Running back Gus Johnson was signed by the Cowboys to their practice squad, Rob Phillips of the team's official website reports. Although injuries have clearly decimated the offense as a whole, the Cowboys' backfield appeared to come out of Week 2 in good health.

With all four running backs believed to be healthy, the Cowboys have no need for Johnson on the active roster. The undrafted rookie likely needs multiple injuries in front of him in order to have any shot at a significant role in the offense.

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.
Kellen Moore
The Cowboys activated quarterback Kellen Moore from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After putting a number of signal-callers through a tryout Tuesday -- namely, Christian Ponder, Matt Flynn, Josh Johnson, and McLeod Bethel-Thompson -- the Cowboys have opted to promote the in-house candidate. Expect Moore to compete with newcomer Matt Cassel for the backup QB gig to Brandon Weeden, which could provide Moore's first NFL snap during Tony Romo's (shoulder) extended stay on the sideline.

Dez Bryant
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant received a PRP injection Friday to help speed up the healing process following foot surgery, USA Today reports.

"There is not a concern about his progress," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "The fact that he can do that (injection therapy) is a positive. This was not something to address something that was a surprise or anything. It was something to get him some additional strength."

The platelet-rich plasma injection is intended to boost healing in an area that doesn't get a lot of blood flow. The Cowboys will be on bye following Sunday's game against the Patriots, and the team should have a better idea of Bryant's progress and possible timetable for a return during that week.

Foot - Missed Week 5 vs. New England
Chaz Green
The Cowboys pared down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing four and giving injury designations to six, according to the team's official website.

The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.

Dallas also placed Orlando Scandrick on IR, Chaz Green on the PUP list and Mark Nzeocha on the NFI list.

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
Cowboys offensive guard Ronald Leary (groin) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, the Cowboys' official website reports.

Leary will return from a two-game absence and start at left guard, sending La back to the bench. Though it hasn't quite lived up to expectations, the Dallas offensive line is still one of the NFL's best.

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
No Updates
Joseph Randle
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle ran the ball 15 times for 60 yards and caught all four of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 30-6 loss to New England.

Randle had disappeared in the second half of the previous two games, due to ball security issues, but that was not the case Sunday, as he did not fumble. The entire offense struggled, however, so Randle wasn't really able to get on track. Meanwhile, Darren McFadden had little impact as a runner, but caught 9 of 10 targets for 62 yards. Christine Michael ran just one time for six yards Sunday, but considering Dallas' lack of offensive playmakers, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him get more work soon. The Cowboys have a bye in Week 6, so keep Randle on your bench next week.

J.J. Wilcox
Cowboys free safety J.J. Wilcox played through a broken nose in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Wilcox suffered the injury while delivering a massive hit on Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. early in the game. He told team trainers to dismiss the injury until after the game was over.

Keith Smith
Cowboys quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Keith Smith, linebacker James Anderson, tackle Doug Free, tackle Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were ruled inactive for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.
Dakorey Johnson
No Updates
Brice Butler
Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Butler served as the No. 4 wide receiver in a Week 4 loss to the Saints, catching one pass for 67 yards on his first target of the season. He had a chance to make it a touchdown, but he pulled up lame with the injury and was unable to reach the end zone. In Butler's absence, Rodney Whitehead will provide depth behind Terrance Williams, Devin Street and Cole Beasley.

Hamstring - Missed Week 5 vs. New England
Charles Brown
The Jets signed offensive tackle Charles Brown on Friday, per nj.com.

Charles took the open roster spot left by offensive tackle Sean Hooey, who the team released on Thursday.

Brown, who tried out for the Jets during minicamp this week, spent more than half of last season as a backup with the Giants.

Randy Gregory
An MRI confirmed Cowboys rookie defensive end Randy Gregory sustained a high ankle sprain Week 1 against the Giants, per NFL Network. 

Coach Jason Garrett said Gregory could miss up to four weeks. Although, NFL Network is reporting a 4-6 week timeframe.

Ankle - Missed Week 5 vs. New England
Christine Michael
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle did not see a snap in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Saints after nearly fumbling at the goal line for the second consecutive week, The Dallas Morning News reports.

After being explicitly told not to try and jump over the pile and stretch the ball into the end zone on goal line carries, Randle did exactly that Sunday on a play that was initially ruled a fumble but was overturned on replay to award him the touchdown.

Lance Dunbar's season-ending injury will probably keep him in the backfield mix, but with Christine Michael now being worked in as well, Randle's hold on the starting job appears to be slipping.

Doug Free
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
The Cowboys pared down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing four and giving injury designations to six, according to the team's official website.

The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.

Dallas also placed Orlando Scandrick on IR, Chaz Green on the PUP list and Mark Nzeocha on the NFI list.

Knee - IR. 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).

Cole Beasley
Beasley caught four passes on six targets for 40 yards Sunday.

Quarterback Brandon Weeden had a terrible game, and even when Beasley was able to get open underneath Weeden wasn't able to find him consistently. The Cowboys get their bye next week and could well switch to Matt Cassel under center in Week 7, but Beasley's role isn't likely to change much.

Reshod Fortenberry
Jason Witten
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught 5-of-6 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 30-6 loss to New England. He also lost a fumble.

The Patriots seemed intent on shutting down Witten, holding him without a catch in the first half. He made a few plays in the second half, but QB Brandon Weeden had a tough time moving the ball for most of the game, so that didn't help Witten's cause. He's averaging exactly five catches per game since Tony Romo went down with a collarbone injury in Week 2, but he hasn't scored during that span. In any event, make sure Witten is on our bench next week, as the Cowboys will have their bye.

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. 

Rodney Smith
The battered Browns list three injured players on their inactive list for their Sunday game at Carolina, including Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden (shoulder). Also hurt and out are fellow corner K'Waun Williams (hamstring) and tight end Gary Barnidge (rib).

The healthy scratches are wideout Rodney Smith , running back Glenn Winston and offensive linemen Vinston Painter and Andrew McDonald.

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 Cowboys pared down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing four and giving injury designations to six, according to the team's official website.

The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.

Dallas also placed Orlando Scandrick on IR, Chaz Green on the PUP list and Mark Nzeocha on the NFI list.

Darrion Weems
The Cowboys have signed Charles Brown and cut fellow offensive tackle Darrion Weems, per the team website.

Brown got into two games with the Giants last season, but played more extensively with New Orleans the previous four years.

Weems lost last season to a shoulder injury.

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
The Cowboys have signed defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford to a five-year contract worth $45 million, a source has told the Dallas Morning News.

Crawford, who broke the news Saturday with a tweeted photo of himself signing the deal, enjoyed his finest season in 2014 by contributing to 33 tackles and recording three sacks.

The tackle has shown the organization "everything we need to see to know that he can be one of the elite tackles in this league," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones.

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
Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the Cowboys will evaluate the entire roster during their upcoming Week 6 bye, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.

"We're gonna evaluate our quarterbacks, we're gonna evaluate our offensive line, we're gonna evaluate our tight ends, our receivers, our running backs, everybody on defense and everybody in the kicking game," Garrett said. "We'll do that this week. We'll make any determinations as the week goes on."

While the Cowboys have problems across the board, as intimated by Garrett's comments, the quarterback situation is poised to dominate the sports radio circuit during the bye week. Brandon Weeden has so far posted a 72.4 completion percentage, but explosive plays have been nonexistent since Tony Romo broke his collarbone in Week 2.

As evidence, Weeden boasts 7.54 yards per attempt in Romo's stead, culminating in a mark of 4.82 in Sunday's pummeling at the hands of the Patriots. If the Cowboys opt for change, Matt Cassel would be the obvious replacement due to his starting experience, but the aforementioned by will likely delay any decision for some time.

Mark Nzeocha
The Cowboys pared down their roster to 75 players on Tuesday by releasing four and giving injury designations to six, according to the team's official website.

The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.

Dallas also placed Orlando Scandrick on IR, Chaz Green on the PUP list and Mark Nzeocha on the NFI list.

Knee - NFI. Out until at least early November
Jeff Heath
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee, concussion), defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion), linebacker Bruce Carter (knee), tight James Hanna (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), guard Zack Martin (ankle), running back DeMarco Murray (hand) and quarterback Tony Romo (back) were cleared to play for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.

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

Sean Lee
Lee (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

After receiving clearance from the concussion protocol Saturday, Lee will return to his rightful place at weak-side linebacker. Despite being limited to 14 snaps in Week 4, he remains the Cowboys' leading tackler with 36 on the season.

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
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (collarbone) was placed on the IR/designated-to-return list Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. Romo has opted to avoid surgery in his recovery from a broken left clavicle, which is slated to require 8-to-10 weeks to heal fully.

Now that he resides on short-term injured reserve, though, he'll miss at least eight weeks, or seven games of the current schedule, with his first potential return date arriving Nov. 22 at Miami.

While he can return to practice as early as preparation for the Cowboys' last regular season matchup against the Eagles in Week 9, Brandon Weeden will operate under center in the meantime, likely without Dez Bryant (foot) for most, if not all, of that run.

Shoulder - IR. Designated for return
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.

Cowboys medical staff appeared to be tending to Martin's neck or shoulder.

Rolando McClain
McClain recorded eight tackles including a sack in his season debut Sunday.

He made a quick impression after serving his four-game suspension, and McClain should be a consistent IDP asset for the remainder of the season coming out of next week's bye.

Anthony Hitchens
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens recorded 11 tackles and added half a sack in Sunday's OT loss to the Saints.

He now has 31 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks through four games, and if the concussion that took Sean Lee out of the game keeps him sidelined for any length of time, Hitchens becomes a very interesting individual defensive player asset even though Rolando McClain will return from his suspension in Week 5.

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).
L.P. LaDouceur
The Dallas Morning News reports Cowboys tendered contracts to six exclusive rights free agents, including Patrick Crayton. Terrance Copper, Willie Pile, and Jacques Reeves have been tendered contracts worth $385,000. Lousaka Polite and L.P. Ladouceur were tendered at $310,000.
Byron Jones
Cowboys rookie cornerback Byron Jones will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Despite the MRI, Jones said he feels fine and has full range of motion in his shoulder.
Vince Mayle
Mayle was signed off Cowboys' the practice squad Saturday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

The Cowboys needed to add a skill player with Lance Dunbar getting placed on injured, so Mayle will get his shot. Look for him to see limited snaps initially.
