Beasley finished the regular season with 65 catches on 87 targets for 672 yards and three touchdowns. After a disappointing 2017, the slot receiver was able to rebound somewhat, although his numbers still didn't make him a particularly appealing fantasy asset. Beasley was in the final year of his contract, and while Jerry Jones is among the most loyal owners in the NFL when it comes to re-signing players, the Cowboys will have bigger priorities in free agency and a new offensive coordinator, so there's no guarantee the 29-year-old will be back in Dallas next season.
Beasley (ankle) is listed as active Saturday against the Rams, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Upon completion of a pregame warmup that included work on resistance cords -- per Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News -- Beasley has been given clearance to play through a high-ankle sprain from the Cowboys' training staff. Beasley handled 41 percent of the offensive snaps in the wild-card victory versus the Seahawks, but it remains to be seen if he can approach that number this weekend. Consequently, fellow wideouts Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and even Noah Brown are better bets to be on the receiving end of passes from Dak Prescott.
Beasley (ankle) is expected to be active for Saturday's divisional-round game versus the Rams, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports. The Cowboys won't make it official until they release their list of inactives 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 PM ET kickoff, but Beasley is poised to play through a high-ankle sprain for a second straight contest.
Beasley (ankle) will take part in a pregame warmup with an expectation that he'll be active for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Beasley predictably didn't practice this week due to a high-ankle sprain suffered in a wild-card win against the Seahawks. That said, if he shows well enough in the aforementioned workout, he's expected to miss the inactive list for the Cowboys' second outing of this postseason. In the end, it's difficult to forecast his workload, which was a season-low 41 percent of the team's offensive snaps last weekend.
Beasley (ankle) won't participate in Tuesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports. Though team owner Jerry Jones said during a radio appearance earlier Tuesday that he's confident Beasley will be ready to go for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Rams, it's expected the slot receiver's practice reps will be restricted this week while he tends to a right ankle injury. Per Todd Archer of ESPN.com, Beasley is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, an injury that often sidelines players for multiple games. However, given the high stakes of every game from here on out, Beasley likely intends to play through the issue at well below 100 percent health, as Jones' comments would suggest. Beasley will still probably need to put in a full practice by Thursday to avoid an injury designation heading into the weekend.
