Butler (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cardinals. Butler was slowed by his ankle injury at both Friday's and Saturday's practice sessions, but he was still able to get on the field, which bodes well for his chances of being available Monday night. Both Butler and fellow wideout Terrance Williams (ankle) are listed as questionable for Monday, and Butler's only real chance of making any sort of fantasy impact in Week 3 will be if he plays and Williams is ruled out.
Butler was added to Friday's injury report as a limited partipant due to an ankle injury. Butler sprained his ankle Week 1 but wasn't listed on the injury report ahead of Week 2 against the Broncos. He's merely the Cowboys' No. 4 receiver, but his availability will be worth watching if Terrance Williams misses time with an ankle injury of his own.
Butler (ankle) isn't listed on the Cowboys' injury report Wednesday. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said earlier Wednesday that Butler might be limited due to a sprained ankle, but the fifth-year wideout apparently was fine to practice in full. Butler could join the starting lineup for a tough Week 2 matchup in Denver if Terrance Williams doesn't heal from his own sprained ankle. Williams was able to play through the injury in Sunday's win over the Giants, catching six of seven targets for 68 yards.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Butler is dealing with a sprained ankle and could be limited in Wednesday's practice, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Cowboys plan to monitor how Butler is moving around early on during Wednesday's session before determining the extent of his activity for the rest of the day. Along with Butler, fellow wideout Terrance Williams is also nursing a sprained ankle, though the latter's injury seems to be more significant, as Garrett already said that Williams would be a limited practice participant at best Wednesday. Should Williams' injury force him to the sideline for the Week 2 matchup with the Broncos, a healthy Butler would likely serve as the Cowboys' No. 3 wideout.
Butler caught one of his three targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Giants. He laid out for a spectacular diving grab inside the five-yard line to set up the Cowboys' first score of the game, but was otherwise quiet. Terrance Williams played most of the night dealing with a foot injury and was seen in a walking boot after the game, which could open up more targets for Butler if Williams is limited next week, but a matchup against the Broncos secondary isn't a good fantasy scenario for any receiver.
