Butler (foot) returned to Monday's practice, Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram reports.
Butler is entering his third season with the Cowboys, and sixth overall. He tallied 219 yards and three touchdowns on 16 receptions last season. He currently sits fourth on the team's depth chart, so continuing to build on his rapport with quarterback Dak Prescott at practice will be essential in increasing his role with the offense.
Butler has been diagnosed with a sprained foot, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
With the team still taking a look at the injury to measure the severity, it's unclear how long Butler will be ruled out for. The foot sprain does put his status for Saturday's preseason game in doubt, however, as the Cowboys will likely remain cautious with the wideout.
Butler suffered a foot injury Wednesday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The extent of Butler's injury isn't known. It isn't clear if his availability for Saturday's preseason is in question, either.
Butler caught two of four targets for 78 yards in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Cardinals.
Butler had gains of 46 and 32 yards on go routes, showcasing his excellent deep speed. He figures to serve as the Cowboys' No. 4 wideout again after catching 16 of 32 targets for 219 yards and three touchdowns last season. Fourth-round rookie Ryan Switzer (hamstring) might have a chance to push for a small role, but he mostly profiles as a slot option, whereas Butler works outside.
Butler spent the last two seasons with Dallas, finishing 2016 with 16 receptions for 219 yards and a career-high three touchdowns in 16 games. He was the team's fourth option at wideout last season and will likely see a similar role in the offense in 2017.
