  • Cowboys' Randy Gregory: Comes off COVID-19 list

    The Cowboys activated Gregory (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Gregory tested positive for COVID-19 last Monday, which kept him away from the Cowboys for their Week 2 win against the Chargers. Coach Mike McCarthy told Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News that Gregory was slated to return to team facilities Wednesday, and one day later Dallas made the move to get him back on the active roster. With the pass-rush unit in need of reinforcements due to multiple injuries, Gregory is a key addition in advance of Monday's game versus the Eagles.

  • Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Limited to begin Week 3 prep

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Cooper (rib) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Cooper checked out of the Cowboys' Week 2 win over the Chargers for two plays while tending to a bruised rib, finishing the day with an underwhelming 3-24-0 line on five targets. He'll benefit from a longer turnaround for the Week 3 contest with Dallas hosting the Eagles on "Monday Night Football," and the fact that Cooper will be on the field in some capacity for the Cowboys' first official practice of the week bodes well for his chances of starting and taking on a normal workload in the divisional matchup. Cooper would ideally turn in a full practice Friday or Saturday and enter the Week 3 matchup minus an injury designation.

  • Cowboys' Micah Parsons: Role unclear heading into Monday

    Parsons may shift back to linebacker Monday despite his success in Week 2 working at defensive end, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    The Cowboys understandably aren't tipping their hand when it comes to how they'll deploy the dynamic rookie against the Eagles, but with Randy Gregory returning from the COVID-19 list this week only for Keanu Neal to be placed on it, Dallas may have a bigger need for Parsons back at his original position. The fact that the defense will need to find a way to contain Jalen Hurts, who already has 144 yards and a TD on the ground through two games, will also be a factor -- Parsons' speed and athleticism might be better utilized in the middle of the field rather than chasing Hurts off the edge. While the 2021 first-round pick has already shown he can make an impact no matter where he lines up, Parsons' IDP ceiling is much higher as a linebacker.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Considered high-risk contact

    Neal (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday as a high-risk contact, not because he tested positive, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Neal could thus be eligible to return to team facilities in time for Monday night's divisional matchup against the Eagles, as long as he continues to return negative test results. The starting linebacker handled 77 defensive snaps in each of the Cowboys' first two games, and he has nine stops (six solo) and one tackle for a loss on the season.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Placed on COVID list

    The Cowboys placed Neal (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Neal's status for Monday night's divisional matchup against the Eagles is thus looking iffy, as he won't be eligible to play or attend team facilities until he fully clears the league's COVID protocols. Through the first two weeks of the season, while operating primarily as a linebacker for the first time in his career, Neal has racked up a total of nine tackles (six solo).
