Butler caught both his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Eagles.
It was a poor display from both offenses in a game that meant little to either team, but Butler's 20-yard TD catch early in the fourth quarter proved to be the difference. The 27-year-old once again failed to make much of an impact over the course of the season, with his 317 receiving yards on the year being a new career high, and while Butler's size and speed have never been question, it appears that he'll never be anything more than a depth option in an NFL offense.
It was reported earlier Wednesday that Butler did not participate, but he did in fact return to practice after missing the last three games. The 27-year-old appears on track to make a return for Sunday's regular season finale against the Eagles.
Butler (foot) didn't practice Wednesday.
Butler has missed the Cowboys' last three games with the foot injury and isn't off to a good start for the team's Week 17 preparations. He'll likely need to practice fully Thursday or Friday to have a realistic shot at playing in the Cowboys' season finale Sunday against the Eagles.
Butler will extend his absence to three games as a result of a foot injury. The return of Ezekiel Elliott may have helped with the Cowboys' decision-making process, but Butler's sparse reps will continue to be gobbled up by regulars like Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and Jason Witten.
Butler (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Butler was a limited participant in practice this week after missing the last two game to earn the questionable designation. Noah Brown or Ryan Switzer should serve as the Cowboys' No. 4 wide receiver if Butler is unable to return in Week 16.
