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
Cowboys safety Barry Church has a season-high nine tackles in Sunday's OT loss to the Saints.

Cowboys fans are only going to remember the plays he didn't make though, as Church dropped a possible interception that hit him in the numbers and took a bad angle on C.J. Spiller in overtime, allowing the running back to streak by him for the game-ending touchdown. With 29 tackles through four games though, Church remains a stable individual defensive player asset.

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 - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 5 vs. New England
Darren McFadden
Cowboys running back Darren McFadden had 10 carries for 31 yards in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Saints.

Joseph Randle didn't fare any better, carrying 11 times for 26 yards and a touchdown, also without any targets. Either Randle or McFadden, if not both, will have to take on an expanded role in the passing game, as Lance Dunbar appeared to suffer a severe knee injury during Sunday's game.

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. 

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. 

Foot - Full practice. Probable for Week 5 vs. New England
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 is slated to undergo surgery to repair his torn left ACL, ESPN.com reports.

Per the report, Dunbar -- who is a candidate for IR -- also suffered a partially torn MCL during Sunday's game against the Saints. Now that he is no longer in the Cowboys' backfield mix, Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Christine Michael are left to handle the team's running back duties going forward.

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 has been traded from the Bills to the Cowboys, Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports.

Tony Romo is out for a while, so the Cowboys needed to stock up quickly in terms of quarterback depth. While we would assume Brandon Weeden is the interim starter, he's not nearly as established as Romo, so Cassel could be one or two bad starts away from having a starting job again. We'll see if he gets slotted above Kellen Moore in the pecking order once he gets up to speed.

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
Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson recorded nine tackles and half a sack Sunday, but also lost C.J. Spiller in coverage to lead to the Saints' game-winning touchdown in overtime.

The rookie saw additional snaps after Sean Lee left the game due to a concussion, leading to the most productive game of his career to date as well as the crushing gaffe.

Rolando McClain returns from his suspension in Week 5 though, so barring another injury to the linebacking corps Wilson will return to a reserve role.

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 owner Jerry Jones said he thinks wide receiver Dez Bryant (foot) has a chance to return for Week 7 against the Giants, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Week 7 represents an absolute best-case scenario, as the Cowboys have acknowledged all along Bryant will at least be out through the Week 6 bye. With his recovery going well, Bryant could be back for Week 7 or Week 8, but it's also quite possible he'll need a few weeks beyond that to heal.

Foot - Did not practice. Questionable for 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 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.

Efe Obada
No Updates
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) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Patriots, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Butler strained a hamstring on his first catch of the season, a 67-yard grab in New Orleans on Sunday night. With the first practice of the week imminent Wednesday, head coach Jason Garrett will be afforded his first chance to clarify Butler's status. If he's deemed inactive this Sunday, Butler's next opportunity to play arrives on Oct. 25 against the Giants after the Cowboys' Week 6 bye.

Hamstring - Did not practice. Questionable for 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 - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 5 vs. New England
Christine Michael
Making his Cowboys debut, running back Christine Michael lost a yard on his only carry in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Saints.

Lance Dunbar exited the game with what appeared to be a serious knee injury, leaving Michael as the No. 3 running back behind Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden, both of whom were ineffective. Dunbar's injury probably won't lead to many touches for Michael, so long as Randle and McFadden stay healthy. Of course, if the Dallas running game doesn't improve, Michael might eventually get a longer look.

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
Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence recorded five tackles and his first regular season sack in Sunday's OT loss to the Saints. He also had two sacks in the 2014 postseason, but this was his first one that would matter for individual defensive player leagues.

Lawrence will be joined in Week 5 by the returning Greg Hardy and with the veteran pass rusher commanding more attention from the offense, Lawrence could find it easier to get to the quarterback going forward.

Cole Beasley
Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley caught all six of his targets for 62 yards in Sunday's OT loss to the Saints. Lance Dunbar's potentially season-ending knee injury will likely result in an uptick in Beasley's target volume going forward, making him a better play in PPR leagues.
Reshod Fortenberry
Jason Witten
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught four passes for 57 yards in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Saints.

Witten had a big 28-yard catch on the game-tying drive, but he spent most of his night either blocking or running short routes. Despite catching fewer than six passes for the first time all season, he fell between 56 and 65 receiving yards for a fourth consecutive game. The Cowboys have a Week 5 home date with the Patriots.

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

Groin - Full practice. Probable for Week 5 vs. New England
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
Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden completed 16 of 26 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Saints.

Weeden got 67 of his yards on a deep throw to a wide-open Brice Butler, and he also had some nice gains on the game-tying drive, which ended with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams on fourth down. The Cowboys otherwise deployed a very conservative strategy for the second straight week, relying on dump-offs and a mostly ineffective running game. Weeden actually played a decent game, but there's a good reason the Cowboys are limiting his impact, and he probably won't get to truly air it out unless the team falls behind by a wide margin. Of course, such a scenario could come to pass in Week 5, with the 3-0 Patriots traveling to Dallas.

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
Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Lee was removed in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Saints due to a concussion, but his presence on the field Thursday indicates that he may soon receive clearance from the league's protocol for head injuries. Once he's cleared, he'll resume his role as the Cowboys' starting weak-side linebacker, from which he's accrued a team-high 36 tackles this season.

Concussion - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 5 vs. New England
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.

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
The Browns signed fourth-round pick Vince Mayle and seventh-round selection Hayes Pullard, the team announced

Mayle is a receiver who played college football at Washington State. Pullard is an inside linebacker from USC.
